Type 1 diabetes study….

I just signed up to do this online study for diabetes and stress, I think it sounds interesting…I’ve always wanted to take part in a study but it seems like they are usually about type 2. If you are interested, check out the following:

If you have type 1 diabetes and are between the ages of 18 and 45, researchers need your input for an online study about how different methods of dealing with stress impact your health and functioning.

As you all know, the combination of stressful life events and the demanding daily requirements of the disease can worsen diabetes. The researchers hope that their study will lead to a better understanding of that relationship.

The study requires you to write about stress and health behaviors for about twenty minutes on four days over a two-week period, via the webpage. Three times over the three-month period of the study, you will need to complete a series of online questionnaires about your health and functioning.

Everyone who completes the first round of questionnaires will be entered into a lottery to win $100. Your chances of winning are about one in ten, so why not give it a go?

If you are interested in learning more about the study, and possibly participating, please go to www.clas.wayne.edu/~radcliff or email the researchers at diabetes_research@wayne.edu.
