  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of Pulsatile Intravenous Insulin therapy on circulating blood markers. These blood markers are selected due to their correlation to and possible pathogenetic roles in vascular compromise and inflammatory malfunction in diabetic patients.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Primary: Assessment of effect of Pulsatile Intravenous Insulin therapy on circulating blood markers for diabetic patients. [ Time Frame: Circulating blood markers will be drawn at baseline and every twelve months to monitor and measure results ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 500
Study Start Date: February 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: 2
Diabetic patients who meet inclusion criteria will be enrolled to start Pulsatile Intravenous Insulin Therapy on a weekly basis. Baseline testing will be performed and measured against continued testing every twelve months.
Procedure: Effect of Pulsatile IV insulin on diabetic pt blood markers
Diabetic patients are given pulsatile intravenous insulin on a weekly basis determined by weekly physician order based on pt response and insulin resistance.
Other Name: Humulin, Humulog, Novolog, Epidra
Placebo Comparator: 1
Circulating blood markers will be performed on diabetic control patients at baseline and every twelve months to compare and measure against patients treated with Pulsatile intravenous insulin therapy
Procedure: Effect of Pulsatile IV Insulin on blood markers
Circulating blood markers are performed at baseline and every twelve months to compare and measure against diabetic patients receiving pulsatile intravenous insulin.
Procedure: Effect of Pulsatile IV insulin on diabetic pt blood markers
Blood markers will be performed on diabetic patients enrolled as control patients at baseline and every twelve months to measure and compare against diabetic patients treated with Pulsatile intravenous insulin therapy
