Review Of Basal‐plus Insulin Regimen Options For Simpler Insulin Intensification In People With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Go to: Abstract To identify simple insulin regimens for people with Type 2 diabetes mellitus that can be accepted and implemented earlier in primary and specialist care, taking into consideration each individual's needs and capabilities. Methods Using randomized clinical trials identified by a search of the PubMed database, as well as systematic reviews, meta‐analyses and proof‐of‐concept studies, this review addresses topics of interest related to the progressive intensification of a basal insulin regimen to a basal‐plus regimen (one basal insulin injection plus stepwise addition of one to three preprandial short‐acting insulin injections/day) vs a basal‐bolus regimen (basal insulin plus three short‐acting insulin injections per day) in people with Type 2 diabetes. The review explores approaches that can be used to define the meal for first prandial injection with basal‐plus regimens, differences among insulin titration algorithms, and the importance of self‐motivation and autonomy in achieving optimum glycaemic control. A basal‐plus regimen can provide glycaemic control equivalent to that obtained with a full basal‐bolus regimen, with fewer injections of pra Continue reading >>

    Hi everyone there in this forum. I am very happy about this forum. We can interact and solve so many drug-related issues like formatting, sound-alikes, etc.
    I am very confused about the initial capitalization of the drug "Regular Insulin." Is it Regular Insulin? OR regular insulin? OR Regular insulin.
    Also, if doc dictates Toprol Extended Release Tablets, do we need to transcribe Toprol extended release tablets or Toprol Extended Release Tablets. Product website - www.toprol-xl.com show this drug with initial caps.

    Hi, I'm new, too, as of this week.
    Re "Regular Insulin" whether to cap both words. In my QUICK LOOK program, found all antidiabetic agents under one heading: Insulin Preparations. Regular Insulin was not listed, but Regular Iletin® II was (as distinguished from NPH Iletin® II]). But context is everything. If the doc really said "regular insulin," I wouldn't cap either word starting a sentence, duh. Or shehe could've named the specific drug but it came on tape as "insulin" instead of "Iletin." If still doubting, and your person dd(shehe)is amenable to questions, I would ask.
    Of the times I didn't ask when in doubt, 95% of the time I wish I had. My word to the wise with hopes it will suffice.
    As to Toprol, the exact name is Toprol-XL® [US/Can]. But the doc would probably just cap the Toprol; i.e. Toprol extended-release tablets. Otherwise, he/she would have dictated [i]"Toprol-XL tablets."[[i]
    By now you've probably received ten replies, 'specially if you're on the east coast. So, please pardon the redundance.
    Til next time, I am
