Like hypos last week, insulin is in the news. Considering that nothing is better at causing hypos than insulin is, they are connected in more ways than one.
The big question with insulin in the news now is how come we have generic sulfonylureas and metformin, but no generic insulin? After all, insulin has been on the market since 1922, while the first sulf came out years later, in 1957. Glucophage, the first brand of metformin approved in the U.S., came out more recently yet, in 1995.
