Factors Affecting the Absorption of Subcutaneously Administered Insulin: Effect on Variability

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftReviewfagfællebedømt

Variability in the effect of subcutaneously administered insulin represents a major challenge in insulin therapy where precise dosing
is required in order to achieve targeted glucose levels. Since this variability is largely influenced by the absorption of insulin, a deeper
understanding of the factors affecting the absorption of insulin from the subcutaneous tissue is necessary in order to improve
glycaemic control and the long-term prognosis in people with diabetes. These factors can be related to either the insulin
preparation, the injection site/patient, or the injection technique. This review highlights the factors affecting insulin absorption
with special attention on the physiological factors at the injection site. In addition, it also provides a detailed description of the
insulin absorption process and the various modifications to this process that have been utilized by the different insulin
preparations available.
