Diabetes Education

Pill burden is a big barrier for my clients as well as compliance in taking medications.
When we begin discussing the need for an add on OHA there is often hesitancy to “take one more pill”.
I try to offer combination options as often as possible to ease that burden as well as giving once daily options.
Regarding compliance, I educate regarding the purpose of each of the medications so that there is an understanding of their action profile in the body and why the medication has been prescribed.
