Insulin Therapy. What’s New?

B.N. Mankovsky, N.N. Zherdeva


The article deals with the need for insulin therapy in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) type 2. In recent years, the indications for insulin therapy in patients with DM type 2 have increased significantly. According to the UK prospective DM (UKPDS), annually 5–10 % of patients with newly diagnosed DM type 2 require insulin therapy type, and after 10–12 years — 80 % of patients in need of treatment with insulin, which is associated with decreased insulin secretion by β-cells by approximately 4 % per year.
For ease of use and greater patient adherence to insulin therapy in the pharmaceutical market there are presented insulins Insuman® Rapid, Insuman® Basal, Insuman® Comb 25 in disposable injection pen SoloStar. They are the only insulins being released in that form as of today.
