ABSTRACT
The article cites that adjunctive inhaled insulin before meals improved glycemic control more than adjunctive metformin in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Poor glycemic control may be caused by an unacceptable route of medication and fear of hypoglycemia. Monotherapy choices for the treatment of type 2 diabetes include metformin, sylphonlyureas, thiazolidinediones and meglitinides.
