Abstract

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of diabetes self-management training (DSMT) provided by pharmacists to bring about changes in patient lifestyle behaviors that lead to improved glycemic control as measured by glycosylated hemoglobin (A1C). Compared with A1C levels before DSMT, post-A1C concentrations were significantly decreased in the population of patients achieving goals (n = 56). The 56 patients set a total of 95 goals. Sixty-two (65%) of 95 goal outcomes were achieved. The mean pre-DSMT A1C level in the patients who achieved their outcomes goals was 9.35% ± 2.84%, which was reduced to 7.86% ± 1.81% (P = .0002). Patients receiving DSMT who achieved patient-specific lifestyle behavioral goals demonstrated a greater improvement in glycemic control compared with patients who did not achieve lifestyle behavioral goals. The most improvement was seen in patients who achieved goals of participating in an exercise program and monitoring their blood glucose levels regularly.
