Influence of insulin injection on quality of life and depression in diabetic patients
Sang Ah Lee, Joong-Yeol, Park
Insulin is the most effective drug for reducing blood glucose in patients with diabetes commonly. But it has negative aspect for diabetic patients to change from oral hypoglycemic drug to insulin injection. Insulin injection makes patients feel reducing self-esteem and QOL (quality of life). So they complain depressive moods. Multiple insulin injection has an effect on patient’s emotion more negatively than one or two injection of insulin. It is suggested that physicians much more concern about self-esteem and emotional aspect of patients when they prescript insulin. (Korean J Med 77:57-59, 2009)
