Insulin therapy in type 2 diabetes
Glucose control in type 2 diabetes can be improved with additional insulin, self-monitoring of blood glucose and self-adjusting of the insulin dose. Insuling therapy can be safely started in primary care. Evening insulin is the therapy of choice in most patients. A realistic target in type 2 diabetics is to reduce the HbA1c level to 7.0 % (53 mmol/mol).
