Emergency glucagon Zegalogue

A new emergency glucagon treatment is to become available in the United States from June 2021. Zegalogue – also known as dasiglucagon injection – was recently approved by the FDA to treat severe hypos in people with diabetes over the age of six. Trials found that taking Zegalogue (0.6mg) during a severe hypoglycemia episode can raise blood glucose levels by at least 20mg/dl – considered a recovery stage – within about 10 minutes. Traditional rescue glucagon injections can take 30-45 minutes. Almost all adults in the trial (99% of participants) recovered and returned to non-hypoglycaemic blood glucose levels within 15 minutes of taking Zegalogue. Read more HERE.
