Description:
Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition, where beta cell function declines and fails, therefore requiring almost all individuals to be commenced on insulin therapy. There appears to be a very real clinical inertia within community care in relation to the initiation of insulin and GLP-1 hormones in the community. This appears to be dependent on a number of variables, most notably cost, efficacy and side-effects. Also access to specialist supports such as access to a diabetes specialist nurse and consultant care has to be considered. This is not just unique to Ireland, it is a worldwide phenomenon. As with most insulin initiation and GLP-1 hormone initiation in the community, it is primarily for individuals with type 2 diabetes, so this article will focus on that population.
