TABLE 1

When to Consider Treatment Intensification Beyond Basal Insulin

Definition of overbasalization: the titration of basal insulin beyond an appropriate dose in an attempt to achieve glycemic targets 
How to identify overbasalization: 
  • • Basal insulin dose >0.5 units/kg/day

 
  • • Postmeal blood glucose >180 mg/dL

 
  • • A1C not at goal despite target fasting blood glucose level being achieved

 
  • • BeAM differential ≥50 mg/dL
