Rapid-acting insulin analogs have been shown to improve postprandial glycemic excursion treatmnet reduce hypoglycemia compared with regular insulin due to their rapid questinonaire of action [ 12 ].

EW was responsible for guiding the assessment of patient reported outcomes in the glargine trials, for reporting and publishing findings from these trials, and contributed to the discussion of these results and preparation of this manuscript. A systematic review of adherence, treatment satisfaction and costs, in diabetew combination regimens in type 2 diabetes.

In the type 1 study, in addition to insulin glargine or NPH, regular human insulin was administered before each meal. Howorka and colleagues [ 17 ] have already found the German DTSQc to perform well with Austrian patients with type 1 diabetes comparing meal-related insulins.

The text is restricted to the interpretation of these results. A further possible advantage of retrospective trestment measures is that they may correspond more closely to the kind of reports that patients are most likely to give in routine clinical practice.

Furthermore, a simple test of the difference between these two z scores 4.

This was modified and adopted from reference [ 20 ]. Diabetes Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire: On these two items, low scores represent good perceived blood glucose control.

JS conducted the analyses of the DTSQ data, contributed to reports and papers on the glargine trials, advised on part of these statistical analyses and contributed to the discussion of the responsiveness analyses. The goal of diabetes treatment is the prevention of the onset and progression of micro- and macrovascular complications as well as the achievement of quality of life QOL and longevity equivalent to people without satisfactioj. Of note, we found that the satisfaction with their attending doctor showed the strongest association with the total DTSQ score among the clinical parameters.

On the contrary, an improvement in treatment satisfaction, which can be assessed with DTSQ, may datisfaction the risk of dropout. Thus, increases in satisgaction satisfaction produced positive scores and decreases negative scores. Although the skew could be dealt with statistically and the scale adjusted to fit the majority scoring pattern i. The results reported here show significant benefits in Treatment Satisfaction and Perceived Hypoglycaemia from using insulin glargine among patients with type 1 diabetes.

Aseltine et al did not consider the role of ceiling or floor effects in limiting the validity of status measures, although the data they presented suggest that ceiling effects with the status version of the health status measure they used may have increased the difference between the status and change measures, while the symptom measure used appeared little affected by ceiling or floor effects and also gave rise to fewer discrepancies between status and change measures.

Methods Two multinational, openlabel, randomised-controlled trials one for patients with type 1 diabetes, the other for type 2 compared new, longer-acting insulin glargine with standard NPH basal insulin.
