About this book
The functional use of insulin is the most effective method of treatment of diabetes requiring insulin available today. This book of Functional Insulin Treatment, FIT, shows how to put it into practice. Previous diabetes education programs have adapted the patient's life style to the conditions of therapy. The goal of FIT is to avoid/delay late complications while tailoring the therapy to the life of the patient: whether with multiple daily injections or with controllable infusion, the diabetic person trained in FIT is able to dose her/his insulin according to its actual function, i.e., either for eating or for fasting or for correction of hyperglycemia, so that she/he achieves both, the target glycemic control and the freedom to fast or to eat whenever, whatever and how much she/he wants. Included are new strategies for patient motivation, new insulin analogs, management of nutrition in overweight, easy estimations of algorithms for starting functional use of insulin and everything that makes flexible treatment an indispensable solution for every interested self-responsible person who needs insulin.
