But researchers also found 84% of responding health providers said it would be beneficial if patients prepared questions in advance of office visits. In addition, results from the global Diabetes Attitudes, Wishes and Needs 2 study (DAWN2) also demonstrated that 33% of patients reported they were encouraged by their health care provider to ask questions during consultation.

"People with diabetes who feel supported and capable of self-managing their condition are more likely to have a successful treatment outcome and therefore have the opportunity to live a better life with diabetes," Ingrid Willaing, MPH, head of Education Research at the Steno Diabetes Center and lead national investigator for DAWN2 in Denmark, said in a press release. "The DAWN2 study highlights that far too few people with diabetes are supported to take an active role."
