Insulin Therapy In The Treatment Of T2DM Prof. Ibrahim El-Ebrashy Cairo University Head Of Diabetes & Endocrinology Center
T2DM is insulin resistance + insulin deficiency Type 2 diabetes –Characterised by insulin resistance and insulin deficiency –Degrees of resistance and deficiency vary but insulin deficiency is key to developing diabetes Adapted from Bergenstal et al. In: Degroot & Jameson (eds). Endocrinology 2001;821–35
Slide No 3 Natural history: insulin secretion and blood glucose control IFG, impaired fasting glucose Postprandial glucose Fasting glucose ObesityIFGDiabetesUncontrolled hyperglycaemia Insulin resistance Insulin level Years of diabetes – –530 Beta-cell failure Glucose level (mg/dL) Relative function (%) Normal Adapted from Bergenstal et al. In: Degroot & Jameson (eds). Endocrinology 2001;821–35
Improving control reduces risks of long-term complications Every 1% drop in HbA 1c can reduce long-term diabetes complications 43% Lower extremity amputation or fatal peripheral vascular disease 37% Microvascular disease 19% Cataract extraction 14% Myocardial infarction 16% Heart failure 12% Stroke UKPDS 35: Stratton et al.

There is resistance to insulin despite efficacy and guideline recommendations In a survey of insulin-naïve T2DM patients, 28.2% of respondents reported that they would be unwilling to take insulin if it were prescribed 3 UKPDS 27% of T2DM patients randomized to insulin initially refused treatment 1 DAWN More than half of insulin-naïve T2DM patients expressed anxiety about starting insulin therapy 2 1 UKPDS 33, 1998; 2 Peyrot et al. 2005; 3 Polonsky et al Kunt and Snoek Int J Clin Pract 2009; 63:6-10 Slide no 10
Barriers to starting insulin Fear of hypoglycaemia Fear of reduced quality of life Reluctance to inject in public Perception that the disease is becoming more severe Fear of needles/pain from injections Patients do not feel empowered to take control of their diabetes Korytkowski.

Common reasons for clinical inertia Insulin makes one fat Fear of hypos Pain from injection Pain from blood tests Insulin makes one fat Fear of hypos Pain from injection Pain from blood tests * Percentage of patients/physicians interviewed who provided this as a reason for not starting insulin Insulin naïve patientsPrimary care physicians Nakar et al.

Patient concerns still exist after insulin initiation Diabetes has progressed Less flexibility Injection fear Weight gain Seen as sick p<0.001 for all Percentage of subjects who agree or strongly agree Insulin naïve Insulin-treated Increased risk of hypoglycaemia Snoek et al.

q A 49-years-old male patient with T2DM 8 years ago, being treated with Insulin Glargine 20 unites at 11 pm and glimpride 3mg before breakfast and metformin 2g/day since 2 years BMI 30 q Lifestyle: High-carbohydrate meals is fond of rice or bread and potatoes. Does not exercise.
HbA1c = 7.5% On antihypertensive for several years. Recently, a statin has been added to his medications
He wants to fast in ramadan? Yes No
What due think you should first ask before deciding the his treatment regimen in ramadan ? 1. His blood glucose analysis during the day
Blood glucose levels over the day: FBG 145mg/dl PPG (Post-breakfast) 165 mg/dl Pre Lunch 133 mg/dl PPG (Post-Lunch) 167 mg/dl Pre Dinner 166 mg/dl After Dinner ( main meal ) 261 mg/dl
What are the option to control his blood glucose ? Increase the dose of glargine? Add a mealtime bolus? Shift to basal-bolus insulin regimen? Switched to premixed analogue insulin before eftar and SU at a lower dose before sohoor and the same metformin doses?
What dietary advice you have to give him in Ramadan ? 1. Eftar starting with a lot of fluids and no sugar 2.Snack after praying taraweeh 3.Lot of fluid during the time allowed to eat 4.Late sohoor
