Do you alter activities to avoid injections? In 2008, the AADE commissioned a study that surveyed 502 people living with diabetes and using injection therapy to manage their condition. The participants revealed how they alter their eating habits, physical activities, and even social engagements to avoid taking the injections they need.
Injection Ports can lead to improved A1c In 2009, a study published in Pediatric Diabetes concluded that the use of an injection port in some children taking multiple injections, helped to improve their blood sugar levels by increasing their compliance with injection therapy and reducing their A1c from 9.4 to 8.5 over a six month time period.
