Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the various types of available insulin products, focusing on when each type may be used in the treatment of the diabetic patient.
  2. Describe a biologic and/or biosimilar insulin product.
  3. Review the latest treatment guidelines for the use of insulin in the diabetic patient.

Overview: 

According to the American Diabetes Association, over 34 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year. Approximately, 6.8 million Americans are treated with insulin Before insulin was discovered in 1921, people with diabetes didn’t live long as there were no treatments. In 1921, a young surgeon named Frederick Banting and his assistant Charles Best figured out how to remove insulin from a dog’s pancreas. In January, 1922, Leonard Thompson, a 14 year old boy was the first person to receive an injection of insulin and within 24 hours his dangerously high blood glucose levels dropped to near-normal levels. Fast forward 100 years… today, we have over 15 types of insulin available.
