Objective: Diabetes is a non-communicable disease. The patient satisfaction with treatment is a key point of patient’s compliance. Definitive treatment for patients with type 1 diabetes is lifelong insulin injections, but type 1 diabetic patients are commonly in poor glycemic state due to poor compliance. Therefore, it is necessary to check insulin treatment satisfaction in this population. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to evaluate the satisfaction of insulin treatment in patients with type 1 diabetes in Yazd.
Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study, 114 patients with type 1 diabetes participated. Persian version of Insulin Treatment Satisfaction Questionnaire (ITSQ) used. All analyzes were performed by SPSS 22.
Results: The overall satisfaction mean score in this study was 49.72(± 8.88). Insulin treatment satisfaction score had a significant positive correlation with BMI (P: 0.00) and age (P: 0.04). Hypoglycemic control sub-scale showed a positive correlation with BMI (P: 0.01) and age (P: 0.01). Also, inconvenience of insulin therapy regimen sub-scale showed a significant positive correlation with age (P: 0.04). Overall satisfaction and sub-groups had no significant correlation with other variables.
Conclusion: The overall satisfaction in type 1 diabetics was unacceptable. Understanding the pathogenesis of this problem could guide health care providers for better and effective management of type 1 diabetes. Also, a more comprehensive approach with consider all potentially relevant variables is necessary.
