Abstract

The coma produced with the divided insulin doses did not occur earlier and was not deeper than that produced by the single dose. The increased effort in divided dose schedules is justified neither by increased safety nor by increased depth or duration of the induced hypoglycemia.There was no evidence that the initial dose of insulin sensitized the subject so that subsequent doses produced a greater hypoglycemic effect. The total hypoglycemic effect of divided doses appears to be less, if anything, than the effect of a single dose.
