Abstract

Studies show that approximately 20–30% of diabetes medication is not taken as recommended and this is associated with higher healthcare costs. The rate of disability due to diabetes complications is also increasing as many people with diabetes are living longer. These disabilities, which include cognitive decline, vision loss and impaired dexterity, can impact on a person’s ability to self-manage their diabetes. This article outlines some of these disabilities and discusses the role of insulin delivery devices on adherence, and the need for research involving these devices to include people with disabilities.
