ABSTRACT
The authors reflect on the research findings which demonstrate that insulin analogues are not as effective as conventional insulin in glycemic control. They cite that based on studies conventional insulin still remain effective, thus, extensive promotion for the benefit of insulin analogues are not justified. They remark that budget should be spent more on educational programs in improving the medical outcomes for diabetics, until long-term studies affirm the benefits of insulin analog.
