Data analysis Prior to performing psychometric analyses, the combinability of the subgroups defined by country and type of diabetes was tested by a method described elsewhere [ 18 ], which confirmed the acceptability of combining the samples.

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

EW was responsible for guiding satisfactoin 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. However, as the effect sizes based on these ts differ significantly despite the positive correlations, the stated results are conservative.

The DTSQc is designed specifically for use in a treatment intervention situation to allow explicit retrospective comparison between treatments. The questionnaires were filled out anonymously and the patients answered the questionnaires in the waiting room outside the examination room.


Not all roads diavetes to Rome-a review of quality of life measurement in adults with diabetes. Table 10 “Perceived Hyperglycaemia” — Descriptive Statistics. For Perceived Hyperglycaemia and Hypoglycaemia, positive scores indicate an increase in Perceived Hyperglycaemia or Hypoglycaemia and hence deterioration in these outcomes.

Once-daily insulin glargine has been shown to be associated with at least similar glycaemic control with fewer hypoglycaemic episodes than NPH insulin [ 92021 ]. The evidence is that the DTSQc does not. Handbook of Psychology and Diabetes: When the associations between the DTSQ score and other clinical parameters were questionnaier, there was a weak negative correlation between the total score of DTSQ and the intensity of treatment questionnaire.

The wording of the items themselves is the same for both the status and change aatisfaction, the small exception being part of the wording of item 7 recommending the treatment.

Introduction 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 dteq longevity equivalent to people without diabetes. Roborel de Climens A. The important differences lie in the wording of the response options and instructions, which, in the DTSQc, direct the respondent to compare their experience of the current treatment with their experience of treatment before the study began.

Health Qual Life Outcomes. The criterion for the number of factors extracted in the unforced analysis was the number of principal components with eigenvalues greater than 1. This leaves those respondents who were already very satisfied beforehand with little or no room to show improved satisfaction later in the trial [ 78 ].

When using the status measure with people At Flooran increase in Perceived Hypoglycaemia is apparent, while the change version shows reductions i. Thus research findings based on dtaq change measures are likely satiafaction translate more directly into clinical practice.

Where the capacity for change in status scores is limited by ceiling or floor effects, a retrospective change measure with no such limitations will provide a more valid measure of the benefits of treatment. Given the nature of insulin glargine, with its longer action and constant release of insulin without a questinonaire peak, achieved with only one daily injection of basal insulin, it was expected that treatment satisfaction would be greater in the insulin glargine group than the NPH group.

Guidelines for encouraging psychological well-being: These results emphasize the importance of patient satisfaction in the assessment of diabetes treatment, which cannot be fully assessed by glycemic indices, including HbA1c. Impact on diurnal metabolic state and quality of life.

The problem is not unique to the DTSQs. It was hypothesised that the DTSQc would be more responsive to treatment change particularly when respondents had scored at or near ceiling on the DTSQs at baseline.
