05:09 EDTMDTMedtronic announces insulin pump more effective than daily injection
Medtronic announced the results of the global OpT2mise trial, which included eight participating centres in Canada. The results showed that MiniMed insulin pumps safely achieve better glucose control for people with insulin-requiring type 2 diabetes than multiple daily injections. While the benefits of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion with an insulin pump for people with type 1 diabetes are well proven, this is the largest global study to evaluate the comparative efficacy of CSII with an insulin pump versus multiple daily insulin injections in people with type 2 diabetes with poor glycemic control. In the OpT2mise trial, those using insulin pumps achieved a mean A1C reduction of 1.1 percent compared to only a 0.4 percent reduction by those using multiple daily injections. This improvement in glucose control was achieved without any episodes of severe hypoglycemia. In addition, those in the insulin pump group lowered the total daily dose of insulin by more than 20 percent. There was no difference in weight gain between the two groups.
