By: Daniel Trecroci

Insulin therapy for one year improves HbA1c, but does not appear to have any adverse effects on blood pressure in people with type 2 diabetes.

In the May issue of Diabetic Medicine, the effects of insulin usage on blood pressure in nine type 2s with poor control were evaluated. After one year, HbA1cs were improved, falling from 10.1 to 8.2%, with no adverse effects on blood pressure.
