New survey explores the impact of insulin injections on people with diabetes
Date:8/7/2008

ng the survey we had two goals in mind, the first was to encourage patients to take a more proactive role in communicating with their healthcare team about their concerns regarding insulin injections. The second was to dispel the myth that healthcare providers were unaware of or were unwilling to address the quality of life issues surrounding insulin injections. It is our hope that the results from this survey accomplish both these goals and that patients and providers will begin talking regularly about these important issues. If we can improve the quality of life for 33 percent of people with diabetes who are insulin dependent, then we can be one step closer to lessening the impact of the disease on our patients' lives."

In response to the results from the Injection Impact Report, the Discussion Group is developing tools for patients and healthcare providers to help foster increased communication around these issues.

"Diabetes is unique in that it requires significant commitment and adherence by the patient to keep it in control. If patients are not comfortable communicating issues related to their quality of life, over time they may adhere less and less to their regimen, putting them increasingly at risk for complications," said Davida Kruger, MSN, APN-BC,BC-ADM, diabetes nurse practitioner and member of the Injection Impact Report Discussion Group. "As this survey shows, a percentage of individuals living with diabetes and taking insulin are altering what they eat during the day to avoid injections or even skipping the injection entirely. Even if that only happens rarely, omission of insu
