Welcome to the new DiabetesMine Test Kitchen, the first-ever video product review site for and by people affected by diabetes.

We're excited to offer this central place where you can view and comment on reviews of all sorts of D-related products by fellow patients -- and submit your own reviews, too!

The aim is to help people with diabetes everywhere become better health consumers, and provide valuable feedback to the vendors who create these products.

Please watch this introductory video:

Five Things you should know about the DiabetesMine Test Kitchen:

1) This is a community site! We heartily encourage anyone living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes or parenting a child with diabetes to participate by submitting a review of your own! We pay a stipend of $100 for each video accepted by our team. See details here.

2) Our aim is true! We are looking for candid, honest feedback from real patients, who can also provide constructive criticism on product offerings where appropriate. We are not looking to intentionally "slam" any item or company.

3) The DiabetesMine Test Kitchen and its contributors are not compensated by any vendors to do these reviews, but we do accept free review units or review samples.

4) The Test Kitchen does not review any FDA-regulated drugs.

But we do review pretty much every other type of product that could affect life with diabetes:

  • Software and mobile health apps
  • Insulin delivery devices
  • Glucose measuring devices
  • Diabetes carrying cases and accessories
  • Food items, including glucose products for treating low blood sugar
  • Other diabetes-relevant fitness, food, and lifestyle products

5) We invite vendors to request reviews of their products. In case of factual errors in existing reviews, please contact us to request a correction. (If we determine a correction is required, we may pull a video for revamping.) Vendors who wish to showcase DiabetesMine Test Kitchen reviews of their products are encouraged to license our logo for free. For details, kindly email us here.
