Traditional intermediate- and long-acting insulins (NPH insulin, lente insulin, and ultralente insulin) are limited by inconsistent absorption and peaks of action that may result in hypoglycemia.
The initial treatment of a newly diagnosed patient with IDDM usually begins with a simple insulin regimen using an intermediate-acting insulin - i.e., NPH or Lente insulin 10-30 units SC (subcutaneously) each AM.
For instance, NPH and Lente insulin have a duration of 24 hours.
