In this case reports of four patients newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in whom a short course of insulin was given along with oral hypoglycemic agents for a short period in order to correct glucotoxicity. The Ambulatory Glucose Profile (AGP) was initiated to study the effect of our prescription at initial visit on subsequent glycemic control and to further adjust treatment at the end of two weeks. We also compared the area under the curve (AUC) for glucose on 2nd day of treatment with that of the 13th day (using the trapezoid method) so as to obtain a quantitative measure of the response to early and aggressive treatment with insulin in this group of newly diagnosed patients. The 1st and 14th day were not considered for analysis as the data was incomplete due to differing times of insertion and removal of the sensor.
