How the Omnipod DASH® System may help improve Quality of Life1
Prescribing freedom with the Omnipod DASH® System
When treating people living with T1D, one of the considerations is their ability to be healthy, comfortable, and enjoy life events. Fortunately, the Omnipod DASH® System, which consists of a lightweight, smartphone-like Personal Diabetes Manager (PDM) and wearable pod2, has been shown to increase Quality of Life1, while also demonstrating improved glycaemic control in people with T1D1,3,4,5 and associated with reduced acute complications in real world studies.6
Efforts to prevent complications of diabetes often overlook its effect on Quality of Life (QoL)7
When treating T1D, improvements in treatment satisfaction are often viewed as improvement in overall QoL. This fails to take into account the limited scope of the satisfaction measure. To measure quality of life, it is necessary to not only take into account treatment satisfaction but also the impact that diabetes and its treatment can have on other factors that could affect Quality of Life.7
The Omnipod® System decreases diabetes distress while increasing QoL1
The Omnipod® System showed improvement in overall QoL and reduction in diabetes distress, supporting patient well-being.1
