Multiple Daily Injection of Insulin Using Insulin Detemir in Type 1 Diabetic Saudi Children

Detemir (levemir™) insulin is a recently approved, long acting insulin analog that is increasingly being used in children and adults with diabetes. Ten Saudi children with type 1 diabetes mellitus were selected and started on determir-based basal-bolus insulin therapy.

The results of this local experiment are encouraging to implement this mode of intensive insulin therapy in all candidate diabetic Saudi children
