Insulin Lispro Pregnancy

Insulin Lispro and regular Insulin In Pregnancy

A Bhattacharyya, S Brown, S Hughes and P.A.Vice.

Insulin Lispro (IL), an analogue of regular human insulin with a peak insulin achieved within an hour of injection, significantly improves post prandial hyperglycaemia. This is very important in diabetic pregnancy, whether gestational or pre-gestational. Patient acceptability has also been higher with IL, which is very helpful in maximizing glucaemic control in pregnancy.
