Do you have Type 2 diabetes? Have you been considering taking insulin to maintain your diabetes control? Then you may be interested in trying out a free online program from insulin manufacturer Sanofi.
Using eight cognitive-behavioral exercises, the program guides users through “identifying and addressing common barriers to starting insulin.” The course includes four sequential sections — Am I Ready?, Defy the Myths, Taking Small Steps, and Making the Move — which are broken down into two subsections each, such as “Explore My Emotions” and “Adjusting to Injections.”
Each subsection contains an introduction to the topic; a set of interactive activities, such as rating the strength of emotions like anger and worry or practicing guided relaxation techniques to prepare for injections; and concluding remarks to tie everything together.
