Table 1 Forced weekly insulin titration schedule for basal and prandial insulin

From: An educational program for insulin self-adjustment associated with structured self-monitoring of blood glucose significantly improves glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus after 12 weeks: a randomized, controlled pilot study

Mean of self-monitored FPG values from preceding 3 days Adjust of nocturnal basal insulin dosage (IU/day)
<90 mg/dL (5.0 mmol/L) −1
90-130 mg/dL (5.0-7.2 mmol/L) No adjustment
>130 mg/dL (7.2 mmol/L) +2
Mean of self-monitored pre-dinner values from preceding 3 days Adjust of diurnal basal insulin dosage (IU/day)
<90 mg/dL (5.0 mmol/L) −2
90-130 mg/dL (5.0-7.2 mmol/L) No adjustment
>130 mg/dL (7.2 mmol/L) +2
Mean of self-monitored postprandial values from preceding 3 days Adjust of prandial insulin dosage (IU/day)
<90 mg/dL (5.0 mmol/L) −1
90-180 mg/dL (5.0-10.0 mmol/L) No adjustment
>180 mg/dL (10.0 mmol/L) +1
