Presentation Summary

The obesity epidemic and growing insulin resistance require the use of ever increasing amounts of insulin to control blood sugar in patients with diabetes. With the recent increase in availability of different concentrations of insulin, the potential for medication errors and dosing errors related to the use of insulin has also increased. Clinicians need to be aware of the similarities and differences between new insulin options and more traditional insulin therapies when prescribing for their patients with diabetes.  This presentation will use case scenarios to illustrate the correct dosing calculations of new insulin formulations.
