Abstract

Introduction

The aim of this study was to investigate the association between baseline characteristics [HbA1c and body mass index (BMI)] and the effect of mealtime fast-acting insulin aspart (faster aspart) relative to insulin aspart (IAsp) or basal-only insulin therapy on several efficacy and safety outcomes in people with diabetes.

Methods

Post hoc analysis of three randomised phase 3a trials in people with type 1 diabetes (T1D; onset 1) and type 2 diabetes (T2D; onset 2 and 3). Participants (N = 1686) were stratified according to baseline BMI (< 25 kg/m2, 25–< 30 kg/m2, ≥ 30 kg/m2) or HbA1c (≤ 58 mmol/mol, > 58–< 64 mmol/mol, ≥ 64 mmol/mol; ≤ 7.5%, > 7.5–< 8.0%, ≥ 8.0%).

Results

In participants with T2D, the estimated treatment difference for change in HbA1c was similar for all BMI and HbA1c subgroups. No major differences between treatments were observed in risk of overall hypoglycaemia or insulin dose across subgroups. In participants with T1D, change in HbA1c was similar across BMI and HbA1c subgroups, and no major differences between treatments were observed for severe or blood glucose-confirmed hypoglycaemia across subgroups. Total daily insulin dose (U/kg) was similar across all baseline HbA1c groups and the BMI < 25 kg/m2 and 25–30 kg/m2 groups, but was significantly lower with mealtime faster aspart compared with IAsp in the BMI > 30 kg/m2 subgroup.

Conclusions

In participants with T1D and T2D, treatment differences (for change in HbA1c and overall hypoglycaemia) between mealtime faster aspart and insulin comparators were similar to the corresponding overall analysis across baseline HbA1c and BMI subgroups. The finding of a lower total daily insulin dose in participants with obesity (BMI > 30 kg/m2) and T1D treated with faster aspart, versus those treated with IAsp, may warrant further investigation.
