Clinical Study - Adding Lantus to Other Diabetic Medications Helps Reduce High Glucose Levels
During the second phase of a clinical study that added the medication lantus (an injection) to an oral medication helped reduce the blood sugar levels in patients with uncontrolled diabetes.
The clinical findings included a lower blood sugar level in all the patients in the trial and hypoglycemic episodes where lower with the medication lantus. Dr. Jack Leahy of the University of Vermont College of Medicine and principal investigator of one of the clinical trials was impressed by the results he said it lowered the blood sugar levels and showed a lower risk for hypoglycemia.
The outcome of all clinical studies performed where done so with a different type of oral diabetic medication so that the final results could be compared to a number of oral medications. This is good news for diabetics with uncontrolled diabetes.
