Glucagon-like peptide 1 GLP-1 analogue combined with insulin reduces HbA1c and weight with low risk of hypoglycemia and high treatment satisfaction. Treatment satisfaction and quality of life with insulin glargine plus insulin lispro compared with NPH insulin plus unmodified human insulin in individuals with type 1 diabetes.

It is composed of eight questions, each of which is scored by patients on a scale ranging from zero e.

A randomized controlled trial.

It is important to note that, although the benefits of the change measure are most apparent in the Treatment Satisfaction scores from patients scoring At Ceiling at baseline, the DTSQc is also more responsive to change than the DTSQsDiff in patients who were Not at Ceiling to start qudstionnaire.

Factors associated with treatment satisfaction and expected effects from its improvement on clinical outcomes. However, it was expected that the Not at Ceiling group would be better able to show an increase in Treatment Satisfaction than the At Ceiling group, if they were using the DTSQsDiff, and this was indeed the case.

The effects of treatment for the two questionnaires were compared regardless of dtzq the treatment was NPH or glargine. The wording of the items themselves is the same for both the status and change versions, the small exception being part of the wording of item 7 recommending the treatment.

Thus, increases in treatment satisfaction produced positive scores and decreases negative scores. Although questionniare skew could be dealt with treagment and the scale adjusted to fit the majority scoring pattern i.
