Insulin therapy is the most vital and efficacious treatment for diabetes, yet it remains the most complex. Current issues in insulin therapy include setting appropriate individual glycemic targets, using currently available insulins more effectively and safely, and using insulin in combination with incretin therapies. Recent research has paradoxically clarified some of these issues, but further complicated others. The future of insulin therapy will offer additional opportunities to individualize therapy, as investigations are designed to explore various strategies to deliver insulin in a more perfectly physiologic manner, including new types of insulin analogues, new routes of administration, and new delivery technologies. This activity will discuss recent findings pertaining to both the present and future of insulin therapy.
This activity will include 6 'hot topic' discussions, each consisting of a short written excerpt of relevant, corresponding clinical data and audio clips of the faculty roundtable discussion derived from questions received during the live activity.
