"Hypoglycemia is a major concern for both people with diabetes and their physicians and can often lead to under- and sub-optimal treatment. Of particular concern are hypoglycemic events that occur in the overnight hours during sleep when patients are unaware and therefore unable to take measures to reverse it. Newer insulins such as insulin degludec may be able to mitigate this concern."
"We are proud that The Lancet has recognized the clinical potential of insulin degludec by publishing these two pivotal studies. Novo Nordisk is very excited about the potential of insulin degludec to lower the rates of hypoglycemia in people with diabetes using basal insulin analogues."
