Barriers to the Control of Diabetes - Session Overview

In this session we will briefly discuss controlled diabetes in contrast to uncontrolled diabetes. We may think out-of-control diabetes has to do with patient “non-compliance”. We will discuss barriers to the control of diabetes to include intolerance of diabetic medication, cost of medications, education level and others.

Session Length: 60 minutes

Prerequisite(s): Prior knowledge of pathophysiology of diabetes and the management of the condition to well-controlled.

Learning Objectives

  • To be able to define uncontrolled type 2 diabetes in an adult.

  • To consider a patient’s barrier to the control of diabetes as something other than eating too much sugar and not exercising.

  • To identify resources to overcome barriers that prevent control of diabetes.
