New drug may trim number of insulin injections
USA Today

A preliminary study reports that people with diabetes were able to get injections of a new insulin drug just three times a week without major ill effects. The findings still need to be confirmed in another phase of research, and it’s not clear how much the drug would cost if it were approved for this use. But those caveats aside, the study raises the possibility that people with type 2 diabetes might be able to escape the difficult regimens that require them to inject themselves with insulin as often as four times a day.
