Abstract:
Diabetes is a major chronic illness, with type 2 diabetes affecting 1 in 20 people in Ireland.1 It is estimated that 180,000 people, of all age groups, have either type 1 or type 2 diabetes, and this is expected to rise to 233,000 by 2020.2 Recent research conducted by Diabetes Ireland shows that 1 in 3 people has a family member with diabetes.3 It is estimated that almost 30% of people with diabetes use injectable therapies,4 which, based on current figures, can be calculated as approximately 54,000 Irish people.5 For injectable therapies to work optimally, correct injection technique is essential.
