Thus, not all patients suffering from the disease can be treated by specialized diabetes centers or outpatient clinics, but by primary care physicians.

Insulin Management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus – – American Family Physician

A comparative study of insulin lispro and human regular insulin in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and secondary failure of oral hypoglycemic titratioon. Abstract Type 2 diabetes mellitus has become a worldwide major health problem, and the number of people affected is steadily increasing. Numerous clinical trials have shown that basal insulin can be initiated successfully using basal insulin titration algorithms.

Effectiveness of a computerized insulin order template in general medical titratkon with T2DM: Further improvement in postprandial glucose control with addition of exenatide or sitagliptin to combination therapy with insulin glargine and metformin: Insulin is available in pens and vials. Therefore, this also emphasizes the need to focus on FBG during insulin therapy—especially basal insulin therapy—in T2DM.

Medical antihyperglycaemic treatment of T2DM mellitus: Uncertainties regarding initial insulin dosing and titration due to vague prescribing information provided by manufacturers, and.


Common Standards of Basal Insulin Titration in T2DM

Most studies used a starting insulin dose of 10 U per day, 12,13,37,40,42,43,46,47,50,52,54 others used slightly higher 51,53 for patients on more than one OAD or lower 45,52 doses for some populations or based their starting insulin dose recommendation on a formula 11,41 or on units per kilogram body weight. Pain is associated with injection therapy and glucose monitoring, although thinner and shorter needles are now available to help decrease pain.

Insulin is secreted by the pancreas in a glucose-dependent manner continuously throughout the day, as well as in response to oral carbohydrate loads.

Glimepiride combined with morning insulin glargine, bedtime neutral protamine hagedorn insulin, or bedtime insulin glargine in patients with type 2 diabetes. First insulinization with basal insulin in patients with T2DM in a real-world setting in Lamtus.

Common Standards of Basal Insulin Titration in T2DM

Fasting Blood Glucose target: Diabetes Res Clin Pract. Incretin therapies include dipeptidyl-peptidase IV inhibitors sitagliptin [Januvia] and saxagliptin [Onglyza] and glucagon-like peptide-1 agonists exenatide [Byetta] and liraglutide [Victoza]. Short-acting analogue insulin is given up to 15 minutes before a meal to maintain two-hour postprandial glucose levels. Treat-to-target insulin titration algorithms when initiating long or intermediate acting insulin in T2DM.

Insulin Dose Longer-term trials have shown that the insulin dose over time keeps increasing, e. Adapted with permission from Endotext. This review will give an overview on basal insulin therapy for T2DM in daily life, taking into account recommendations by international guidelines, the use of titration algorithms, and future perspectives for patients and primary care physicians. Replacement should be considered for patients with type 2 diabetes that is uncontrolled with augmentation therapy and who are able to comply with such a regimen or who desire tighter control.


Sitagliptin is currently the only one of these medications that is approved by the U.

Please review our privacy policy. Type 2 diabetes patients face a dramatically increased risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular morbidity and mortality.

Insulin Management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

The choice between algorithms may depend on clinical circumstance and a patient’s willingness and ability to become more involved in management of therapy. FPG lower target group 7.

A randomised, week, treat-to-target trial comparing insulin detemir with insulin glargine when administered as add-on to glucose-lowering drugs in insulin-naive people with T2DM. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with insulin resistance and slowly progressive beta-cell failure. Initiating insulin therapy in T2DM: Rationale, design, and baseline data of the insulin glargine Lantus versus insulin detemir Levemir treat-to-target L2T3 study: Median A1C levels were similar among the groups, but hypoglycemia was more common in the premixed and bolus groups, and weight gain was more common in the bolus group.
