Group of Medications Used in DM

All patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus must take insulin because without it, they develop ketoacidosis; it is also useful for managing many individuals with type 2 diabetes. To meet basal and prandial needs in type 1 diabetes, replacement insulin should ideally mirror beta-cell function (physiologic replacement or basal-bolus dosing). An insulin pump that delivers a basal rate of insulin and additional boluses with meals or to lower blood sugar levels is another option. Multiple daily injections with two types of subcutaneous insulin are another option. Both regimens necessitate strict monitoring of nutrition, activity, insulin timing, and dose.
