Q: How long does a lantus shot stay in the system?
Lantus is a 24 hour steady release effect. Lantus can be given in a single shot and some people may have to split the dose, ie am and pm.
WHEN I WAS FIRST PUT ON THE LANTUS SHOT MY DOCTOR SAID THAT THE SHOT IS A SLOW RELEASE INSULIN AND WOULD STAY IN THE SYSTEM FOR TWENTY FOUR HOURS , BUT IT TAKES A COUPLE OF DOSES FOR IT TO BUILD UP ENOUGH TO START GETTING MORE ACCURATE READINGS, AND TO STABLIZE THE FLUXUATION OF THE SUGAR IN YOUR SYSTEM..
