Many patients with type 1 diabetes tell us that managing their weight and their diabetes is difficult and sometimes frustrating.
The purpose of the study is to investigate how people with type 1 diabetes experience and manage their diabetes, eating, and weight.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if you:
If you choose to participate, you will first speak with one of our research coordinators. This initial screening call generally takes about 20-30 minutes. After you have completed the screening, the research coordinator will send your results for review and someone will call you within 24-48 hours to let you know if you qualify.
The study involves a set of questionnaires and a structured interview. You will then wear a continuous glucose monitor and use your cell phone to answer study questions for three days.
The questions come in the form of regular phone calls between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. Each call takes only a minute or two to complete.
You will also be asked to call in and answer study questions after eating.
The study involves a minimum of two clinic visits to Duke.
Compensation starts at $175. You will receive an additional $75 for answering 95 percent or more of the calls you receive, for a total possible $250.
