Toujeo is also known as insulin glargine, a man made insulin, which is used for the treatment of type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. Toujeo is injected under the skin, once a day, to help control a person's blood sugar level. Those with diabetes typically have too much sugar in their blood, and need help in filtering out the correct amount of sugar. Toujeo works by removing the insulin that is normally produced by the body. It then moves the sugar from the blood and into other body tissues. This way it can be stored and used for energy.
