Mastering Your DiabetesMetabolic & Psychosocial Outcomes

Diabetes Empowerment Scale (DES)

The DES is a valid and reliable survey of patient empowerment which yields an overall empowerment score based on all 28 items and three subscale scores (range for all scales: 1.0-5.0). Improvement was evident on all DES scales for participants in the MYD pilot study, despite high baseline values.

Quality of Life & Self-Efficacy

Measures of both Quality of Life (QOL) and Self-Efficacy showed statistically significant improvement following the intervention. At the three month follow-up the most significant improvement in QOL sub-scales was for Satisfaction (p=0.0113).

Success of Program Depends on
  • Getting primary-care physicians (PCPs) to attend the program.
  • Inviting key diabetes educators.
    • May need to set up additional training to certify competency in basal/bolus therapy.
  • Facilitating network opportunities between PCPs and educators.
  • Evaluate impact of program.
    • Pre- & post-program questionnaires.

calculating insulin ratio doses
Calculating Insulin Ratio & Doses
  • Calculate total daily insulin dose (TDI)
    • Based on current insulin doses
    • Based on weight in kg (weight x 0.5 u/kg/day)
  • TDI is approximately ½ basal and ½ bolus replacement
  • Example: A 80 kg patient would require ~ 40 units of insulin per day, of which 20 units are for basal replacement and 20 units to cover meal carbohydrates

II Workshop on Quality of Diabetes Care, Miami, May 2003

calculating insulin ratio doses40
Calculating Insulin Ratio & Doses
  • Calculate corrective ratio (supplemental insulin)
    • For Lispro or Aspart use 1800  TDI = fall in glucose (mg/dl) per 1 unit of insulin
    • For Regular insulin use 1500  TDI = fall in glucose (mg/dl) per 1 unit of insulin
  • Example: A patient requiring 40 units of insulin per day would expect a 45 mg/dl drop per unit of Lispro/Aspart insulin

Basal/Bolus Insulin Prescription
  • Basal insulin replacement
    • Insulin Glargine 20 units at bedtime
  • Prandial insulin replacement
    • 7 units Lispro or Aspart before meals
  • Correction (supplemental) insulin
    • 1 unit per 45 mg/dl above target
  • Pre-meal target: 120 mg/dl
