    -   STORY SUMMARY: A diagnosis of diabetes often means the beginning of a
        life-long struggle to manage glucose (blood sugar) levels. But for
        sisters Tina Trotter and Carmen Trudel of Winnipeg, both living with
        type 1 diabetes, tackling diabetes together with family makes it a
        lot easier. Along with Trudel's nine-year-old son Jonathan and their
        mother Helen Compayre, they have started using the newly available
        pre-filled insulin pen, Lantus SoloSTAR, as part of their daily
        diabetes management efforts to achieve long-term glucose control.

    -   Lantus SoloSTAR is the first insulin pen available in Canada to come
        pre-loaded with a cartridge of Lantus basal insulin, making day-to-
        day management of diabetes easier and more convenient for patients
        living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Lantus is the first and only
        long-acting insulin to provide 24-hour glucose-lowering activity with
        a single daily injection.
