IDS Monthly Survey: May 2019


In last month’s edition of Diabetes Bites we asked what you think about sharing your CGM (continuous glucose monitor) data with a partner or family member:

A. Of course I share my data with my partner! They have every right to know what’s going on with my diabetes.
B. I share it, but only so that they are alerted and can assist if I’m having a serious high or low blood sugar.
C. I share it, but only because they insist on knowing what’s going on.
D. No way I’m letting my partner anywhere near my CGM data.

125 People shared their thoughts, even if they’re all not fans of sharing their data:

This month, with Congress working on a “Medicare for all” plan, we would like to know what you think about government-sponsored healthcare:

A. It’s about time! Public healthcare works really well in all other parts of the world.
B. It would be a struggle, but there’s really no other way to fix our healthcare system.
C. I’m OK with it, but only if I can still obtain private insurance as well.
D. Government can’t do anything right.  Keep it as far away from my healthcare as possible.
