ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study that evaluated the effectiveness of insulin detemir in patients with type 2 diabetes with the use of a simplified self-adjusted dosing algorithm (G1) compared to standard-of-care physician-driven adjustments (G2). The dosage of detemir for patients from G2 was adjusted by physicians according to the standard of care. The findings show that patients who switched from basal ± OAD with glargine to detemir presented improvements in glycemic control.
