Insulin secretion in non-diabetic human. The peaks represent the additional insulin released at meal times, called post-prandial, or after-meal insulin. Here you see how the non-diabetic body automatically calculates how much insulin is needed to handle the extra glucose generated by the meal and releases it. Bolus insulin, injected at mealtimes by those with diabetes, is an attempt to replicate this normal pancreatic action. Within 2 hours after a meal has been eaten, insulin secretion in a non-diabetic reverts back to the lower, or basal level (amount of insulin necessary for the body's needs without considering the processing of food) shown as the low points in the graph.
