OBJECTIVE—To evaluate whether treatment with insulin in recently diagnosed type 2 diabetes is advantageous compared with glibenclamide treatment.

RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS—ß-Cell function, glycemic control, and quality of life were monitored over 2 years in 39 patients with islet cell antibody-negative type 2 diabetes diagnosed 0–2 years before inclusion in a Swedish multicenter randomized clinical trial.

Patients were randomized to either two daily injections of premixed 30% soluble and 70% NPH insulin or glibenclamide (3.5–10.5 mg daily). C-peptide-glucagon tests were performed yearly in duplicate after 2–3 days of temporary withdrawal of treatment.

RESULTS—After 1 year the glucagon-stimulated C-peptide response was increased in the insulin-treated group by 0.14 ± 0.08 nmol/l, whereas it was decreased by 0.12 ± 0.08 nmol/l in the glibenclamide group, P < 0.02 for difference between groups.

After 2 years, fasting insulin levels were higher after treatment withdrawal in the insulin-treated versus the glibenclamide-treated group (P = 0.02). HbA1c levels decreased significantly during the first year in both groups; however, at the end of the second year, HbA1c had deteriorated in the glibenclamide group (P < 0.01), but not in the insulin-treated group. The difference in evolution of HbA1c during the second year was significant between groups, P < 0.02. A questionnaire indicated no difference in well-being related to treatment.

CONCLUSIONS—Early insulin versus glibenclamide treatment in type 2 diabetes temporarily prolongs endogenous insulin secretion and promotes better metabolic control.
