Question from Chesterfield, Virginia, USA:
My daughter and my husband recently were switched to Lantus insulin, and both of them of them have started shaking in their right hand. Is this a possible side effect of Lantus?
It’s not likely that Lantus (insulin glargine) is the culprit, but this is an odd association you describe. You should discuss this with their diabetes team and perhaps stop the Lantus and see if it goes away — then comes back when Lantus is reintroduced.
