Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects a large number of people requiring continued, interdisciplinary medical care and, on many occasions, specialised care in order to achieve good metabolic control, with no detriment to the quality of life of the sufferer.
Insulin treatment constitutes one of the fundamental therapeutic pillars in many patients, as it helps maintain strict glycemic control, reducing short and long term complications. The aim of this work is to provide an updated view of available insulins.
