Date:11/21/2008

Patient Assistance (www.PatientAssistance.com) has released initial survey results on diabetes awareness amongst uninsured and underinsured Americans.

Baton Rouge, LA – November 20, 2008 – Patient Assistance releases initial findings of a survey on diabetes awareness amongst the predominantly uninsured and underinsured visitors of www.PatientAssistance.com. Highlights include the fact that more than half of the more than 1000 unique respondents do not know their blood glucose level.

Increasing awareness of an individual’s blood glucose level is the foundation of the National Diabetes Goal, which aims to have 45% of at-risk Americans aware of their blood glucose level by 2015. Patient Assistance is a National Diabetes Goal Champion, pledging to raise awareness about diabetes and help turn that awareness into action.
Full results of the first two weeks of the survey are as follows:

  • 32% of respondents have been told by a doctor or other medical professional that they are at-risk for diabetes.
  • 12% of respondents feel they are at-risk of diabetes.
  • 62% of respondents have been tested for diabetes.
  • 44% of respondents know their blood glucose level.
  • 69% of respondents feel there are actions they can take to prevent and / or manage diabetes.
  • The most common ways respondents feel diabetes can be prevented or managed include diet, exercise, and medications.

“Our survey results are an enlightening look at the current level of diabetes awareness, specifically among the uninsured,” says Rex Bowde
