OBJECTIVES: We evaluated the long-term efficacy of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) for treating type 2 diabetes patients uncontrolled by multiple daily injections.
RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: All 102 type 2 diabetes patients who began insulin pump therapy at Caen University Hospital (Caen, France) between January 1998 and August 2008 were included in a retrospective observational study. Ninety-three percent of the patients were previously treated by insulin with a mean duration of 5.6 years.
RESULTS: The median duration of follow-up with CSII was 24 months. A1c glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) improved from baseline (9.3 ± 1.8%) to the 1-year evaluation (7.8 ± 1.4%) (P < 0.001). The magnitude of HbA1c improvement was highly dependent on (1) pretreatment HbA1c level, (2) degree of patient's autonomy, and (3) previous antidiabetes treatment. HbA1c decreased by 0.9 ± 1.6% (P = 0.002) in the group previously treated by a basal-bolus regimen. HbA1c decrease was maintained at follow-up until 6 years (P < 0.05). Mean body weight gain was 3.9 ± 8.6 kg at 1 year (P < 0.001) and remained stable at follow-up. No significant change in insulin requirement was observed.
CONCLUSIONS: The use of CSII in patients with type 2 diabetes is safe and effective for improving glycemic control, particularly in those patients with baseline HbA1c above 8%. Such beneficial effect of CSII may persist until 6-year follow-up, suggesting the durability of CSII efficacy in our study population.
