Diabetes is a growing problem for a large proportion of children. Insulin is the primary medication used for most cases of pediatric diabetes, though achieving adequate glycemic control with current insulin products can be extremely challenging. New insulin forms, including novel analogues and radically changed delivery systems are providing new approaches to controlling diabetes. Health care providers caring for patients with diabetes must be informed of the new insulins becoming available to patients. This CME article will provide an introduction to some of the new insulins and delivery systems.
