Question from Mumbai, India:
I am 30 have had type 1 for 16 years. I have been taking Actrapid and Insultard. Recently, my clinic suggested I switch to NovoRapid and Lantus, which I have already started taking. I have read several articles from the FDA, the National Center for Biotechnology Information, etc., saying that Lantus is unsafe and has a direct connection to a risk for cancer. Is it safe to use?
There is no evidence of Lantus being “unsafe.” It has been used without safety issues for over 20 years.
