RE: [IP] MIT Sloan students win MIT $50K Entrepreneurial Competition



I should think that Type II's would actually use more insulin because of
insulin resistance.
That is, if they quit using the oral medications and used insulin the
projected number of units used would be more than for Type I's. I don't
remember reading any reference to this subject in either Diabetes Forecast
nor Diabetes Self-Management magazines and usually both are really up
on things. Possibly I didn't read so well?

Who is the bigger market for insulin in terms of gross number of units used?

Just curious if the entire type II population would use more insulin
in total than the entire type I population.

A statement made in the article seemed to indicate that this new treatment
option was aimed at type I diabetics.
