Table 4 Algorithm for premixed insulin titration – adjustment according to postprandial glucose[54]

From: Evidence-based clinical use of insulin premixtures

Postprandial blood glucose (mg/dL) Dose adjustment (units)
144-179 ↑ by 1 unit
180-218 ↑ by 2 units
219-258 ↑ by 3 units
≥259 ↑ by 4 units
  1. Postprandial adjustment: Adjust insulin dose administered in a given meal according to the 3-day average capillary blood glucose after the meal; postprandial was defined as <2 hours after the meal with a blood glucose goal of <144 mg/dL.
