Late last week we published the detailed results of our big Patient Voices survey, conducted online in September 2013.  Today, we get to unveil our first-ever original DiabetesMine infographic (!), summarizing what we learned:

 

Diabetes Patient Sentiments Infographic

 

We believe this paints a very realistic picture of how many in the diabetes online community feel about their tools and care. It is, after all, gleaned from the data you gave us.  This infographic played a starring role at the DiabetesMine Innovation Summit on Friday, meaning that key leaders of pharma and device companies, apps developers, clinicians, regulators, and six of the country's top health insurance giants got a very close look at these patient sentiments. May they take it all to heart!
