Study Confirms Benefits of Insulin/Metformin Regimen for Newly Diagnosed Type 2s

Page changed: Insulin for Type 2 Diabetes

Added link to new article which compared three years of using an Insulin with metformin regimen with a metformin, pioglitazone (Actos), and glyburide regimen. Patients had nearly identical results with less average weight gain and no more hypos in the insulin group and high patient satisfaction with insulin.

It's heartening to see that the average A1c in both groups of this study was in the very low 6% range which is a huge improvement on what we usually see in such studies.
