Lantus (insulin glargine) lasts for more than 24 hours?

    I feel like the effect duration of Lantus (insulin glargine) is longer than 24 hours, rather several days. This is obvious when making dose adjustments or accidently skipping a dose.
    The effect diagrams of Lantus I've seen are stopped at 24 hours, even though the effect still seems to be at the maximum plateau by then.
    I know Lantus is metabolized into M1 and M2, of which the former is the active metabolite, but for how long?
