Not sure why your Dr doesnt know about Tresiba its a better insulin, per my dr anyways for type 2. I was taking levemir 2x a day, insurance didnt want to pay for the tresiba so dr had me on levemir. Then suddenly the insurance "United HC" approved the Tresiba so dr put me on that x1/day. Both were like $60/month with insurance.For levemir, you're basically paying for convenience. NPH is cheaper (one-tenth the price) and is a "long" (technically intermediate) insulin with duration of about 10-16 hours. May be dosed either once or twice a day.
If your PCP doesn't want to prescribe it, figure out why or find an endocrinologist if he's giving you the runaround.
I think i replied to the wrong person but info the same.
