Sport and exercise - the new survey and a new direction



We conducted a large survey last year and interviewed many people with diabetes.

We were very grateful for that information and we are publishing the results of the work very soon now.

Now we have expanded this data gathering study to see how diabetic people use their energy stores, especially in sport and exercise. We would like to compare the views and experiences of people with type 1 and 2 diabetes and there is a second new survey that deals with the same issues for people who use insulin pumps.

The participation in these surveys will remain anonymous as before. They will likely take between 30 and 60 minutes to complete due to their detailed nature and the easiest way to do this is online, although we have pdf versions available that can be posted to us (free in the UK).

You will not be asked for any identifiable personal information and so we will not know the sources of completed surveys, though we ask that you tell us the country and area you live in. Similarly, completing it will not lead you into any further contact with us (unless you communicate with us for your own reasons). The information the survey provides will be extremely useful and we are grateful to you for considering completing it. In due course, you will be able to view outcomes of the survey on this website.
