Abstract

Post-prandial hyperglycaemia is a particular problem for some patients with diabetes despite administering continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) to deliver insulin flexibly. We describe two cases of patients on CSII with persistent post-prandial hyperglycaemia despite varying insulin doses and timing. Treatment with acarbose improved their glycaemic control.
