Which of the following questions is the most appropriate to broach this issue with the patient? A 16-year old boy has a 6-month history of type 1 diabetes mellitus and requires daily insulin injections. His blood glucose control has been poor recently, which the physician suspects may be related to the patient’s reluctance to self-administer insulin.



A. €�Giving yourself insulin injections can be difficult. What’s it like for you?”
B. €�I get the feeling you have not been taking your insulin regularly. Would you like me to arrange some training for you by our nurses?”
C. €�It’s been my experience that most poorly controlled diabetics have trouble giving themselves insulin. Do you have this problem?”
D. €�You are clearly having difficulty with insulin injections. Would you like to arrange for a family member to give you your shots?”
E. €�You seem to have missed your shots. How often has this happened?”
