We know that intensive management helps improve blood sugar control, which is important in reducing the risk of long-term complications. For people with Type 1 diabetes, intensive management usually means three or more shots per day or an insulin pump. 61% of people reported using an intensive management regimen. For pump users, Humalog is clearly preferred over Regular.

We last ran this poll in October of 1998. Here's a comparison of the differences between then and now.
