Xultophy® 100/3.6 helps control blood sugar in 2 ways


It adds insulin when your body isn’t making enough to lower blood sugar throughout the day


It helps your pancreas work to produce more insulin when your blood sugar levels are high

In addition to diet and exercise, controlling your blood sugar may help you achieve your A1C goal. Xultophy® 100/3.6 can lower blood sugar for a full 24 hours, including after you eat, so you can stay in control all day long.

Low blood sugar is a common side effect of insulin and insulin-containing products like Xultophy® 100/3.6. In studies, up to 1.2% of people taking Xultophy® 100/3.6 reported episodes of very low blood sugar.
