The American College of Endocrinology and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists recommend initiation of insulin therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes and an initial A1C level greater than 9 percent, or if the diabetes is uncontrolled despite optimal oral glycemic therapy. Sometimes this is the sole titration instruction.

Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network. Analogue insulin is as effective as human insulin but is associated with less postprandial hyperglycemia and delayed hypoglycemia. Diabetes Res Clin Pract.

Insulin Management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Titration of insulin glargine in patients with T2DM mellitus in Asia: Adapted with permission from Endotext. Insulin secretagogues sulfonylureas and glitinides can be combined with insulin, especially when only basal augmentation is being used. Nevertheless, insulin initiation with basal insulin including insulin analog in patients with T2DM can be managed successfully titrahion both primary and secondary care, as shown in a 3-month longitudinal observational study across centers in France; 22 mean HbA1c and FBG values decreased by lntus.

In other studies, this is part of a sequence of titration steps with higher or lower dose increase depending on the blood glucose level. Hypoglycemia has been associated with an increased risk of dementia and may have implications in cardiac arrhythmia. Usually by the time insulin is required for meals, insulin secretagogues are not effective or necessary.


Some microvascular benefit has been associated with A1C targets of 6. Impact of fear of insulin or fear of injection on treatment outcomes of patients with diabetes. Basal insulin should primarily be titrated against the FBG—generally irrespective of the total dose—although the physician should be aware that prandial insulin might be needed if the daily dose exceeds 0.

International Diabetes Federation; Insulin regimens should be tailored to the patient’s needs and lifestyle. Many oral medications are safe and effective when combined with insulin therapy.

Guidelines for optimal bolus calculator settings in adults. Patient algorithms in almost all studies are twice per week or every 3 days ttiration every day.

The aforementioned guidelines, however, vary considerably—not only in size and scope, but also with regard to time and mode of insulin initiation and with regard to targets HbA1c. The first step to achieve this aim would be to strengthen the self-confidence of patients to master the initiation of insulin treatment, to address their fears, and to provide practical and effective algorithms for initiation and subsequent dose adaptation of insulin administration.

Common Standards of Basal Insulin Titration in T2DM

N Engl J Med. Medical antihyperglycaemic treatment of T2DM mellitus: Patient versus Central oversight in a predominantly primary care setting. A randomized, controlled trial. One pilot trial investigated the translation of comparative effectiveness into practice by developing and using a decision aid tool, which proved to be acceptable to patients and providers and effective for knowledge translation.

See My Options close. The driver of the titration physician- versus patient-driven insulin titration: 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. Use of basal and bolus insulin to control blood glucose when endogenous insulin production is minimal or absent.


Augmentation therapy can include basal or bolus insulin.

Dosing of insulin glargine in the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Insulin is effective only if administered appropriately. Negative self-perceptions regarding insulin use insulin, e.

Prospective Diabetes Study, patients with type 2 lantue who were taking insulin gained an average of 8 lb, 13 oz 4 kgwhich was associated with a 0. Guidelines for insulin dosing in continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion using new formulas from a retrospective study of individuals with optimal glucose levels.

When blood glucose levels are above predefined targets, additional short-acting insulin may be added to the bolus dose before meals. Dealing with ceiling baseline treatment satisfaction level in patients with diabetes under flexible, functional insulin treatment. The following important aspects however, should be noted when evaluating basal insulin titration algorithms see Appendix 1 for details including studies:. Long-acting analogue insulin may be administered once or twice daily, depending on the dose.

The key clinical studies cited used different kinds of basal insulin titration algorithms, from few to many steps, different step sizes i. Psychological resistance to insulin therapy in adults with T2DM: Sitagliptin is currently the only one of these medications that is approved by the U. However, it is recommended to continue oral medications while starting insulin to prevent rebound hyperglycemia.
