Shedding Light on Basal Insulin: Comparison of Long-Acting Basal Insulin Analogues
Alice YY Cheng: "That is a great topic I like talking about because I think we have not gone back to basics and mechanisms of action in a while. I think an important thing to remember is that once insulin is in the circulation, insulin is insulin. It does not matter if it was originally a short insulin or a long insulin, it does not matter. Insulin in the blood is the same. If that is the case how can we have short ones and long ones if in the blood it is the same?"
