We have made step-up titration protocol with biphasic insulin aspart-70/30 (BIAsp 30), and tried to achieve glycemic goals in poorly controlled Japanese type 2 diabetic patients. We summarized all results obtained to analyze the effectiveness of our protocol. The target of glycaemic control was defined as HbA1c over 7.0 %. In our insulin initiation protocol, all patients started a once-daily injection of BIAsp 30 before the breakfast in addition to their oral hypoglycaemic agents. The patients who could not achieve the target from 12 to 16 weeks after the start of insulin treatment proceeded to twice daily insulin injection before breakfast and dinner. Next, the patients who could not achieve the target from 12 to 16 weeks after the addition of another BIAsp injection proceeded to thrice daily insulin injection before each meal a day. The results of 39 patients were analyzed, and 10.3 % of all patients achieved the target after the start of once daily injection of BIAsp 30, 41.7 % achieved in twice daily injection of BIAsp, and 51.4 % achieved in thrice daily injection of BIAsp. Daily insulin dose at the end of each treatment was 9.3±4.1 U in once daily, 17.4±6.3 U in twice daily, and 28.4±10.4 U in thrice daily. Total body weight increase by 2.0±2.6 kg. The initiation and titration protocol with BIAsp 30 improved glycaemic control, and increased the number of patients with the achievement of glycaemic goals.
