Insulin lispro: a potential role in preventing nocturnal hypoglycaemia in young children with diabetes mellitus.
AIMS: The long duration of action of soluble insulin given in the evening could contribute to the high prevalence of nocturnal hypoglycaemia seen in young children with Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM).
