Rationale, design, and baseline data of the insulin glargine Lantus versus insulin detemir Levemir treat-to-target L2T3 study: Insulin secretagogues sulfonylureas and glitinides can be combined with insulin, especially when only basal augmentation is being used.

Weight gain was also lowest when basal insulin was added to metformin, as were hypoglycemic events.

Common Standards of Basal Insulin Titration in T2DM

Replacement therapy includes basal-bolus insulin and correction or premixed insulin. This content is owned by the AAFP. Adjust to target in T2DM: In the three-year 4-T study, 44 subjects with T2DM and poor glycemic control on metformin and sulfonylurea were randomly assigned to get basal insulin detemir or biphasic insulin aspart or prandial insulin aspart.

Pharmacokinetic profile of using once-daily glargine, detemir, or NPH therapy. In a study comparing premixed, bolus, and basal insulin, hypoglycemia was more common with premixed and bolus insulin, and weight gain was more common with bolus insulin. Benefits of insulin pens include the convenience of storing at room temperature for 28 days after opening and ease of use for patients with visual or dexterity problems.
