Role of Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion in Patients with Recalcitrant Diabetes in South India.

Background: We aimed to assess the effect of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) therapy in patients with “recalcitrant diabetes” whose glycemia had not been controlled adequately with multiple daily injections of insulin or insulin plus oral hypoglycemic agents.

Patients and methods: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of patients with diabetes who were initiated on insulin pump therapy at our center in India between 2002 and 2007. Data analysis included fasting and postprandial blood glucose and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) values, insulin requirement, body weight, and the occurrence of hypoglycemia and diabetic ketoacidosis.
