Insulin Glargine May Protect Beta Cells


Insulin may help stave off type 2 diabetes in people at high risk. Participants with prediabetes who took insulin glargine daily for an average of six years were 28 percent less likely to test positive for diabetes one month after stopping glargine treatment than those who'd never received the insulin. Researchers say glargine may protect the beta cells in the pancreas that make insulin. The study found that glargine did not prevent the development of heart disease, though.
