300u/ml vs. 100u/ml

Although Toujeo’s formulation is 300u/ml, users would still take the same amount of units that they do with Lantus with a formulation of 100u/ml. So, if you normally take 20 units of Lantus, you would take 20 units of Toujeo. The amount of Toujeo is based on whatever your current insulin requirements are.
