The oral presentation entitled "Early Introduction of Oral Insulin in Patients Failing on Diet and Exercise, A Long Term Efficacy Study in Treatment of Type-2 Diabetes," evaluated the fifteen-week efficacy of a low dose of oral insulin spray in patients failing on diet and exercise to improve post prandial glucose profile and HbA1c.
1) Average post prandial glucose levels 90 minutes after dinner were significantly lower with NovoRapid(r) compared to lispro and human insulin.
Again, post prandial glucose levels 90 minutes after breakfast were significantly better in the pump therapy group compared to the injection group.
3) Other studies showed that, compared to regular human insulin, NovoRapid(r) reduces the risk of major nocturnal hypoglycaemia by 72% in Type 1 diabetes,(4) provides better post prandial and overall glycaemic control in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes,(5),(6) and generates greater patient satisfaction (only assessed in people with Type 1 diabetes).
