Abstract

Type 2 diabetes is a heterogeneous disorder with multiple pathophysiologic defects resulting in an inability to maintain euglycemia. When exogenous insulin is used in its treatment, it is important to take into account its pharmacokinetic properties and attempt to match its peaks and troughs with those of glucose. In this article, the authors discuss strategies on introducing insulin as a treatment option in patients with Type 2 diabetes and how to decrease it when other noninsulin drugs are added to the treatment regimen.
