Supplementary notes

* Figures reflect the percentages of Type 2 diabetes patients who were readmitted to an inpatient facility in the three-year period between 2015 and 2017. These percentages include patients who filled multiple prescriptions. Readmissions are not necessarily due to Type 2 diabetes. Patients who filled prescriptions for any insulin products may have also filled prescriptions for products in the non-insulin category, and vice versa
