PULSATILE INSULIN INFUSION THERAPY – A clinically trialed and optimized Therapy for Diabetes Sufferers
In 2020, the CDC reported that more than 100 million Americans are now living with diabetes or prediabetes. It stated that:
34.2 million people have diabetes or 10% of the population; That is about 1 in every 10 people
6.8 million people or 20% of the population have diabetes but are undiagnosed; that is1 in 5 don’t know they have diabetes
88 million adults aged 18 years or older, or 27% of the adult US population, have prediabetes
60% higher risk of early death for adults with diabetes
2X higher medical costs for people with diabetes, compared to those without.
Type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease) accounts for up to 5% - 10% of all cases. The rest (90% - 95%) are battling Diabetes type 2. This is when the body develops resistance to insulin and is often associated with obesity. With these numbers in mind, we can see that diabetes is a modern pandemic.
Diabetes is just the tip that hides silently expanding damage happening within the body; even before diabetes is diagnosed. Diabetes sufferers are at high risk of developing greater complications such as nerve damage, kidney damage, damage to their eyes, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. In the US, diabetes was the sixth leading cause of death, typically due to the many complications caused by the disease.

restore – reinvigorate the insulin sensitivity of the vascular system and restore the natural balance.
Pulsatile Insulin Infusion Therapy is designed for a person who is already diabetic. This therapy functions to reinvigorate the insulin sensitivity of the vascular system and restore the natural balance.
For Diabetes type 2, Pulsatile Insulin Infusion Therapy has shown to be a success in a recently published clinical trial at the improvement in kidney function and treatment satisfaction was observed after 3 months of PIT in patients with type 2 diabetes and renal failure vs Standards of care alone.
Pulsatile Insulin Infusion Therapy involves the intravenous administration of a metered amount of insulin, within a predefined block of time. These ‘pulses’ of insulin are administered every few minutes. A therapy session requires approximately 2-2.5 hours and is repeated at weekly, then monthly intervals.
The pulsed administration of insulin mimics the natural way the human body releases insulin. In diabetic patients, this natural pulsing has been diminished or completely lost. Pulsatile Insulin Infusion Therapy works to restore this action.
