Impact of reinforcement of diabetes self-care on poorly controlled diabetes: a randomized controlled trial
USA • 2013
Map Tools intervention helped poorly controlled diabetes patients who had received prior DSME realize a modest improvement in glycemic control 3 months post-education, but they were not able to maintain improvement over time (at 6- and 12-month follow-up); modest improvement at 3 months: A1c decreased 0.4 percentage points (p-value = 0.004), no improvement at 6 months: decreased 0.3 percentage points (p-value = 0.07), no improvement at 12 months: increased 0.04 percentage points (p-value = 0.8); BMI: baseline 34.6 kg/m2 7.0 to post-study 34.4 kg/m2 +/- 7.5.
