Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


Despite an increase in the number of antihyperglycaemic drugs with different mechanism of action insulin is the mainstream of diabetes therapy even today. In the last decade new rapid- and long-acting insulin analogues presented themselves on the palette of insulin preparations using a vigorous promotion. Nowadays the choice of treatment in type 1 diabetic patients is the intensified insulin therapy in the form of multiple daily insulin injections or pump treatment. Guidelines today suggest the possible earliest start of insulin treatment in type 2 diabetic persons which has, however, some difficulties to fulfill. The form of the first insulin treatment might be an to metformin add-on basal insulin, human or analogue premix or prandial insulin therapy, occasionally a multiple daily basal-bolus insulin regimen. The thought-provoking review is an evidence based description of advantages and disadvantages of different insulin preparations and regimens.
