New Data Confirm That Use of Levemir Can Limit Weight Gain

lished that even modest weight loss is associated with improvement in blood glucose control, insulin sensitivity and the cardiovascular risk profile.(4-9)

The unique weight benefit of Levemir® has been reported in every single clinical trial published where it has been compared to other basal insulins.(10-23) Collectively these trials provide data representing more than 4,000 patients. In two recently published randomised clinical trials that investigated insulin initiation in type 2 diabetes, mean weight gain was reduced by more than 50% when comparing Levemir® to equivalent regimens of NPH insulin.(10,11) Furthermore, the relative weight benefit of Levemir® was shown to increase with increasing body mass index (BMI).(11) Thus, the weight advantage of Levemir® tended to be more pronounced in more overweight patients.

About Levemir®

Levemir® is a long-acting modern insulin (insulin analogue) that covers the body’s basal insulin needs. Levemir® is released gradually from the injection site into the circulation. Compared to conventional long-acting insulins such as NPH insulin, Levemir® causes less fluctuation in blood glucose levels across the day and has greater predictability, ie a blood glucose lowering effect that is consistent from one injection to another. A single daily dose of Levemir® will provide a duration of action up to 24 hours.(24) The dose should be taken in the evening, at dinner or before bedtime. Injections can easily be managed with the simple and discreet FlexPen®, a prefilled insulin pen.(26,27)
