TuAnalyze Survey: Two Weeks Out

The following was posted by Manny on October 18, 2010-- two weeks after we first launched the survey. You can read the full post and the comments here:

“Two weeks ago, we launched a survey in the TuAnalyze application to complement A1c data with information on diabetes type, treatment and more. So far, hundreds of TuAnalyze users have taken the survey. This is a great start but we need your participation to better understand our strengths and challenges.

Preliminary aggregate data is extremely illuminating. For example, more than 1/3 of the people who have taken the survey report financial struggles to cover the costs of their everyday diabetes care-even people who have insurance. And so far, 1 in 5 survey respondents reports having struggled with depression-and this group tends to show higher A1cs. These are the kinds of findings we think will help mold and improve what we do in the community to better serve everyone.

Please contribute your experience to our understanding of the community and its needs by taking the TuAnalyze survey today. It won’t take more than 5 minutes and it will help everyone.

If your interests are not covered by the survey, take a part in the conversation on this topic and share your suggestions about things you would like to see incorporated.

Last, if you entered A1c values on TuAnalyze before, please take a moment to add any recent results you may have here.”
