New Study Links dLife to Increased Rx Drug Usage Among Diabetes Consumers

WESTPORT, Conn., March 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new study analyzing patient-level prescription data clearly demonstrates that dLife consumers take immediate and deeper action in treating their diabetes and co-morbid conditions after becoming engaged with dLife.  The study also confirms that dLife users test their blood sugar and take medications at a higher rate than non-dLife users.

In the study conducted by Crossix Solutions, Inc. ("Crossix"), the Rx purchasing habits of dLife members were analyzed prior to and after engaging with dLife.  In the period immediately following their engagement, as compared to the general population, more dLife diabetes consumers:

  • Begin Rx treatment for diabetes (+1600%)
  • Add insulin to their current treatment (+125%)
  • Switch from generic meds to branded (+50%)
  • Start test strip use (+700%)
  • Start on cholesterol (+160%) and high blood pressure meds (+150%)

Also, dLife diabetes consumers have higher adherence with their Rx purchase behavior demonstrating higher utilization of insulin (+9%) and test strip usage (+21%) in the post-engagement period.

"We have repeatedly found through our A&U studies over the years that dLife both attracts active health managers and also creates them.  And now we have the 3rd party Rx data to support it," says Howard Steinberg, CEO & Founder of dLife.  "There are so many who know they should be doing more but until they find dLife they don't know how to get there or can't find the motivation to start.  Across our media, everyone can find information they understand and enjoy, educational tools that truly help them learn, and inspiration from others to make lasting changes in their daily diabetes routine.  More aggressive therapeutic management of diabetes and co-morbid conditions is often as simple as lifestyle adjustments."
