2. Participants

The aim was to examine those who added insulin aspart to existing basal insulin; those who switched from biphasic insulin to basal plus insulin aspart; those who switched from NPH insulin plus human soluble insulin to basal plus insulin aspart; and those who were insulin-naïve and started a basal plus insulin aspart regimen. In this sub-analysis, 1594 participants were insulin-naïve prior to the A1chieve study, 519 were using basal insulin alone (± oral glucose-lowering drugs [OGLDs]), 947 premix insulin, 746 basal insulin plus a meal-time human insulin (of whom 586 were using NPH insulin plus meal-time human insulin), and 301 were using other insulin regimens.
