Where are the one day workshops held?
Hi Emily - How do we register our interest in this study? Should we contact BDI? Their website doesn't appear to contain any info on this study. Should we send an email to BDI at the address listed above? What is the specific next step interested individuals could take? Thanks.
Okay. I called BDI and with some kind help I was told how to find the info on the study. It's a bit glitchy on their home page. Look under the "What's New" heading on the left hand side. A series of news items rotate through. Wait for the one about the study and then click on the link. To make things easier for anyone interested, here's the direct link.
I discovered that I am not eligible to participate since my A1c is less than 7.5%. Study locations are San Francisco, Sacramento, and Los Angeles.
With online resources such as Skype, location should not matter.
And "not eligible to participate since my A1c is less than 7.5" Are you kidding me? Keeping an A1C below that it stressful as H E double hockey sticks!! Keeping it at 7.5 would be a very nice, fun day in the park.
If I was at 7.5 I would be a blithering idiot. 7.5 is recently good for older T2 Ds.
Is this a real study and what is the purpose?
I am so feeling this post. Keeping my a1c at 6.5 is like having 2 extra full-time jobs on top of my regular job.
