Improvements in glycemic control, particularly when provided by intensive insulin treatment with multiple daily inyections or pump therapy, reduce the risks of vascular complications, also in younger children. In all age-groups, as close to physiological insulin replacement as possible and optimal glycemic control must be the aim. But the fact that the traditional insulins have certain clinical limitations has led to the development of new analogues, rapid and long acting. These insulins represent some improvement in the care of diabetes.
