“Of the 1,000 adults with type 2 diabetes surveyed, 55% said they were willing to do more to accelerate progress toward their A1c goal, including more frequent doctor visits and changing medications. Meanwhile, of 1,004 endocrinologists, primary care physicians, and other medical professionals surveyed, only 18% thought people with type 2 diabetes would be willing to make such efforts. That’s an alarming three-fold discrepancy!”
The survey was online. Whether online survey-takers are similar to usual clinic patients is a matter of debate.
