Objective We hypothesized that total diabetes-related distress DRD would vary by type of diabetes and medication regimen Type 1 diabetes T1DM, Type 2 diabetes with insulin use T2DM-i, Type 2 diabetes without insulin use T2DM. Thus, the aim of this study is to identify those groups with elevated ORD. Research Design and Methods The Diabetes Center of Excellence administered the 17-item Diabetes- related Distress Scale DDS-17 to 585 patients as part of standard care. In addition, we collected demographics, medications, vital signs, and lab results.
