[IP] Insulin resistance -over weight - question



I have a question from a friend of mine - his father is a type 2 IDMM (age
60+). He is overweight, not in control (high BG), and lately it seems that
insulin is not effective. He is on MDI regimen, total of more than 150
unit/day and does not seem to reduce his BGs to acceptable range. His
doctors seem to change dosage without success so far.

Is there any one with experience on similar phenomena? Is there any medicine
that helps to increase the effectiveness of insulin? He claims that his BGs
are higher even without food...

Thanks for any help.

Avner  - IDDM type 1 since 1974 and pumping since 12/1998.
