ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the early introduction of insulin therapy in newly diagnosed patients with type 2 diabetes. The potential physiological effects of insulin replacement treatment is discussed. It notes that aggressive and frequently utilization of insulin treatment at disease onset in type 2 diabetes is linked to effective glycemic control with minimal weight gain and hypoglycemia. It notes that a more timely introduction of insulin replacement treatment could facilitate the achievement of euglycemia and therefore lessen diabetic complications.
