Type 1 Diabetes – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis (US)

Intensive insulin regimens have been shown to delay the progression of complications associated with untreated or poorly treated type 1 diabetes (T1D). Therefore, it is unsurprising that insulins continue to dominate the T1D market; they are the primary treatment option for disease management, with long-acting and rapid-acting insulins the patient-share leaders in the United States. Differences exist in the choice of branded insulin, choice of regimen, and order in which brands and/or regimens are attempted. In addition, biosimilar insulins have added a layer of complexity to the T1D therapy market. The increasing use of insulin pumps is also playing a role in the evolving T1D market.


  • What patient shares do key therapies and brands garner by line of therapy in newly diagnosed T1D patients? What are the quarterly trends in prescribing among recently treated and newly diagnosed T1D patients?
  • How have ultra-rapid insulins been integrated into the treatment algorithm, and what is its source of business?
  • What percentage of T1D patients receive drug therapy within one year of diagnosis, and how quickly? What percentage of patients progress to later lines of therapy within one year of diagnosis?
  • What percentage of T1D patients are treated with monotherapy versus combination therapy? What are the most commonly used combinations?
  • What are the product-level compliance and persistency rates among drug-treated patients?
