  • 51. Diabetes Mellitus
    • DRUG THERAPY and MANAGEMENT
    • Because the patient with TYPE 1 DM cannot produce insulin, exogenous insulin must be administered for life.

    • GENERALITIES
    • 1. Human insulin preparations have a shorter duration of action than animal source
  • 56. Diabetes Mellitus
    • GENERALITIES
    • 2. Animal sources of insulin have animal proteins that may trigger allergic reaction and they may stimulate antibody production that may bind the insulin, slowing the action
  • 57. Diabetes Mellitus
    • 3. ONLY Regular insulin can be used INTRAVENOUSLY!
  • 58. Diabetes Mellitus
    • 4. Insulin are measured in INTERNATIONAL UNITS or “iu”
