Biphasic and Intermediate Acting Insulins
Diabetes mellitus
General dosage of insulins: The starting dose should be 10-16 units of soluble insulin SC 15-30 minutes (depending on the type of insulin) before meal TID. The dose is adjusted gradually in 5 unit aliquots to achieve plasma glucose range of 8.3-13.4 mmol/L in hospital and target the range of 4-10mmol/L at home. Once the blood glucose stabilizes at 8-11.0 mmol/L the patient is switched to the intermediate insulin whose dose is 2/3 of the total dose of soluble insulin. Normally 2/3 of the intermediate insulin is administered in the morning and 1/3 before supper.
