Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Do you have diabetes and a dog who can tell when your blood glucose level is low or high? Then researchers from the University of Connecticut Health Center want to hear from you!

The investigators are conducting an online survey to see how well dogs can warn people when they have hypo- or hyperglycemia. Whether you purchased a trained diabetes alert dog or the dog naturally took up this role, whether you currently have a dog like this or have had one in the past, whether your dog is good or poor at detecting your glucose levels, your input is welcome.

The survey takes about 25 minutes and is open only to people with diabetes, or their parents, who are age 12 or older. (People ages 12–17 must get parental permission to complete the survey.) Respondents may skip any question or quit the survey at any time.

To take the survey, click here. And if you have any questions, contact Principal Investigator Nancy Petry, PhD, at npetry@uchc.edu or (860) 679-2593.
