Variables associated with insulin production in persons with type 2 diabetes treated with multiple daily insulin injections
Journal article, 2021

From the MDI-liraglutide study, we evaluated variables associated with endogenous insulin production in persons with multiple daily insulin injections-treated type 2 diabetes by relating C-peptide, proinsulin and proinsulin/C-peptide ratio at baseline to baseline variables. Lower insulin production was related to longer diabetes duration, shorter abdominal sagittal diameter and more glycaemic variability.
