Abstract:

The reduction of elevated fasting plasma glucose levels to near normal by repeated intravenous bolus insulin doses, given according to a simple algorithm, has been studied in 17 Type I and 23 Type II, healthy diabetic patients. Using a formula based on the patient's plasma glucose, height and bodyweight with insulin boluses given every 30 min if the plasma glucose remained above 6 mmol/1, plasma glucose levels were reduced to less than 7.5 mmol/1 in 28 (70%) patients by 60 min at which time t...
