Time-dependent changes in energy intake, insulin dose, blood glucose level, and blood IL-6 level. Comparison of time-course changes between the successful and failed glucose control groups: (a) total energy intake, (b) insulin dose, (c) daily insulin dose per 100 kcal energy intake, (d) blood glucose level, and (e) blood IL-6 level. Open symbols, successful glucose control group; shaded symbols, failed glucose control group. Examined by repeated-measures analysis of variance.
