Blood sugar profile was studied by checking multiple plasma venous samples at 1/2 hr interval after porcine plain insulin. Mean blood sugar was the highest (198.8 +/- 24.6 mg%) at 1 1/2 hrs and the lowest (86.3 +/- 18.4) at 4 1/2 hrs after breakfast. 52% of the patients had hypoglycemias between 4 and 5 hrs. It is recommended that pre-lunch blood sugar be checked in those receiving plain insulin.
