Hi, everyone! I just joined this community because, although I don't have diabetes, we are doing research on ways to help diabetics manage their health and I thought this would be a good place to learn about what you all deal with day to day.

I have an online survey (probably would take about 15 mins., possibly less, to complete) that I would LOVE for anyone here who is 45-64 to take. is the link.

If you could find it in your schedule to take this, it would really help me out. :) Thanks so much!

Boy from everyones input here I think I will trust all of you my friends and not this stranger and not even go to the survey.

Out of curiosity I took it too, I'm not sure it is a sales gimmick, Cara, usually sales gimmicks like that REQUIRE your contact information before proceeding. I don't remember the survey even asking about contact info. So, I don't think that it is a sales gimmick.

Yep! I checked the source of the survey. It seems they are conducting a marketing survey to determine if a market exist for a health management/reminder service.

Well doing a survey to determine IF there is a market for a product or service is DIFFERENT than pitching a product or service TO us, IMHO. Does anyone remember them asking for contact information of any kind? I don't. I don't like people coming on DC trying to sell the latest "miracle cure" for diabetes any more than anyone else (especially if they are violating the TOS agreement). Yet IMO this does not have the hallmarks of a sales pitch.

No, they did not ask any personal questions that could be used for mailing purposes. They did ask demographic questions.

I took the survey. I seems to me that they are trying to sell me something. The survey was irrevelant to me.
