Helping you control blood sugar day and night
Levemir® (insulin detemir [rDNA origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin taken
once or twice a day to help control your blood sugar between meals and while you’re
sleeping. Levemir® can be used alone or in combination with diabetes pills or fast-acting
insulin therapy. It can also be used in combination
with a diabetes pill and GLP-1 therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Levemir® insulin therapy can be taken with the Levemir® FlexPen®, a discreet, prefilled,
dial-a-dose pen. It is about the size of a fountain pen, fitting neatly in your
pocket or purse. Once in use, the Levemir® FlexPen® can be used for up to 42 days without
refrigeration (below 86ºF), so you can store your Levemir® FlexPen® in your

were previously taking another long-acting insulin had a low rate of low blood sugar,
also known as hypoglycemia.
