Abstract

Insulin is the cornerstone of therapy in patients with type 1 diabetes. Patients with type 2 diabetes who fail to achieve glycemic control with oral hypoglycemics are also treated with insulin. The clinical aim is to achieve glycemic control within, or close to, the normal physiological levels. Insulin is typically administered via intermittent subcutaneous injection or occasionally via subcutaneous infusion pump. ? Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
