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.

"The DAWN2 study highlights that far too few people with diabetes are supported to take an active role."
