Abstract

PurposeUnderstanding treatment satisfaction TS for diabetes is increasingly important as treatment options increase. This study examines treatment satisfaction with NovoMix 30 in an observational study in patients with type 2 diabetes.

MethodsThe DiabMedSat assesses Overall, Treatment Burden, Symptom and Efficacy Treatment Satisfaction. The impact of type of pretreatment variables on TS was examined by ANOVA at baseline and week 26. Satisfaction at week 26 was examined by t-test and effect size. Linear regression models examined impact of prior treatment factors age, gender, duration of diabetes, type of prior treatment and diabetes-related comorbidities and current treatment factors weight gain, hypoglycemic events, reaching therapeutic goal on TS.

ResultsThe data set comprised 17,488 persons. Prior treatment with insulin had a more positive impact on baseline satisfaction. At week 26, there were no differences between type of prior treatment groups in Overall, Symptoms and Burden TS. Current treatment with NovoMix 30 significantly improved TS. Regression analyses examining the combined effect of pretreatment factors and current treatment factors found that all factors except for age-impacted TS although the domains impacted varied.

ConclusionsPatients treated with NovoMix 30 reported improved treatment satisfaction, and the improvement is considered clinically meaningful to patients.
