Insulin dose increase smaller with basal-bolus therapy vs. other regimens

May 24, 2017

Adults with type 2 diabetes assigned to basal-bolus therapy require a smaller increase in insulin dose after 1 year compared with adults assigned to long-acting insulin or biphasic insulin, according to findings published in the Journal of Diabetes Investigation.

Satoru Tsujii, MD, PhD, of the department of endocrinology at Tenri Hospital in Japan, and colleagues evaluated data from the Diabetes Distress and Care Registry on 757 adults (mean age, 65.7 years) with type 2 diabetes (mean HbA1c level, 7.8%; mean duration of insulin therapy, 11.3 years) who presented to Tenri Hospital to determine the association between four insulin regimens and increases in HbA1c and insulin dose.
