Expert Commentary on Basal Plus Trial Vivian Fonseca


Expert commentary from NDEI Education Council Member Vivian A. Fonseca, MD, on the Basal Plus Trial: is there an optimal insulin strategy for inpatient glycemic control?

Randomized study comparing basal bolus with basal + correction insulin regimen for hospital management of patients with type 2 diabetes: Basal Plus Trial


Exclusive! Expert commentary from Vivian A. Fonseca, MD, on the Basal Plus Trial. Umpierrez GE, Smiley D, Hermayer K, et al. Randomized study comparing a basal bolus with a basal plus correction insulin regimen for the hospital management of medical and surgical patients with type 2 diabetes: Basal Plus Trial. Diabetes Care. 2013;36(8):2169-2174. In this study, Umpierrez and colleagues explored the hypothesis that a single daily dose of basal insulin plus one other corrective dose of glulisine as needed with a meal might result in similar glycemic control and a lower rate of hypoglycemia than a basal bolus regimen.
