Alternative antidiabetic agents such as the thiazolidinediones and the biguanide metformin, are not associated with hypoglycaemia, but have other limitations. The insulin-sensitising thiazolidinediones require the presence of adequate insulin levels as a prerequisite for drug efficacy (Sparano and Seaton 1998; Emilien et al. 1999), and may be ineffective in 25 - 55 % of patients unless sufficient insulin is provided via supplementation or the concomitant use of an insulin secretagogue (Sparano and Seaton 1998).
