Insulin Detemir Versus Insulin Glargine in the Hospital: Do Hypoglycemia Rates Differ?
Clin Diabetes. 2019 Apr;37(2):167-171
Authors: Crisher MA, Giuliano CA, Hartner CL
IN BRIEF Several studies have compared the safety and efficacy of insulin detemir and insulin glargine; however, most have been conducted in the ambulatory care setting. This retrospective cohort study compared hypoglycemia rates between the two basal insulin analogs in hospitalized patients with diabetes. No difference was found between the two insulin cohorts in the proportion of patients who experienced hypoglycemic events.
