New Global Survey Reveals Over One in Three Patients Fail to Take Insulin as Prescribed
Date:9/21/2010

ints of some regimens. These findings are supported by previous research which showed that fewer than one in five people with diabetes (19.4 percent of those with type 1 diabetes and 16.2 percent of those with type 2 diabetes) completely complied with all aspects of their prescribed regimens.

Fear of hypoglycemia may contribute to poor control

Another key factor that may contribute to poor glycemic control is fear of hypoglycemia. Sixty-seven percent of patients taking insulin are concerned about experiencing a hypoglycemic event in the future and physicians share patients' concerns with 74 percent stating that they would treat closer to recommended targets if it weren't for fear of major hypoglycemic events.

People with diabetes are looking for less invasive insulin options

The survey also revealed that nine in 10 patients wish there was an insulin that could be dosed less than once a day and effectively manage blood sugar and 67 percent of them feel that diabetes has controlled their life since starting insulin. At the same time, the survey reveals a third of physicians are dissatisfied with current regimens' ability to fit into patients dynamic lifestyles.

About the GAPP™ Survey

The Global Attitudes of Patients and Physicians in Insulin Therapy (GAPP™) survey was conducted in eight countries with the objective to learn what physicians and patients perceive to be the biggest functional and emotional unfulfilled needs and challenges in the management of diabetes today, specifically relating to insulin treatment. Independent research analysts conducted a 20-minute quantitative survey among 2,780 respondents in the US, UK, Germany, Spain, France, China, Japan and Turkey. The respondents were made up of 1,250 physicians (n=650 PCPs; n=600 specialists) and 1,530 insulin-using diabetes patients (n=180 type 1, n=1,350 type 2).
