Plan out your first week on Tresiba®

Your first week on insulin therapy is very important. This is the time to establish good habits that could help you reach your goal. The following steps will help you get off to a good start. 

Step 1

Fill your first prescription

To help manage your blood sugar, your health care provider prescribed a long-acting insulin as part of your diabetes treatment program, including healthy eating and increased physical activity. Insulin can help you achieve daily blood sugar control and lower your A1C. Fill your prescription right away, even if you received a sample of Tresiba® FlexTouch®. It’s important that you don’t run out.

If eligible, you will pay as little as $5 per 30-day supply of Tresiba® for up to 24 months when you activate your Tresiba® Savings Card before visiting your pharmacy.a
