It is generally thought now that the use of a long-acting insulin alone or mixed with unmodified insulin is preferable to the use of unmodified insulin alone in the control of patients who require insulin in addition to a measured diet. At the present time, however, there is confusion regarding the best preparation or combination of insulins for routine use. Inasmuch as most diabetics are treated by general practitioners or internists who do not specialize in the treatment of diabetic patients it is important that the treatment of diabetic patients should not become too complicated and should still be adequate.
