When we first ran this poll in 1998, the choices of insulin regimen were significantly limited compared with today. Back then, there was no true basal insulin like Lantus or Levemir, and Humalog, the first engineered rapid acting insulin analog, was new to the marketplace. Kids with diabetes typically took two or three injections per day of a mixture of long acting (usually NPH) and short acting (usually Regular) insulins. Much has changed in the past 16 years.
As we learned in our January 2016 poll about insulins used, the use of NPH and Regular insulin continues to decline. Insulin analogs, which offer clinical benefits (better predictability of action, reduced risk of hypoglycemia), have taken their place, at least among visitors to CWD. The results of this week's poll show a continuing decline in the use of NPH insulin and growth in pump use -- now 74% of respondents.
CWD visitors report using the following rapid acting insulins by therapy:
