Hi All,

We hope you have already discovered the DiabetesMine Test Kitchen -- our new crowdsourced hub for video reviews of diabetes products, launched on Monday.

Essentially, we at the 'Mine believe that people with diabetes are at a disadvantage as consumers — after all, where can we patients post and explore user reviews of products aimed at our chronic disease care, like other consumers can do for any variety of products?

We aim to remedy that with this new video review hub. We hope it will help PWDs (people with diabetes) everywhere learn from each other's experiences, and potentially help vendors develop better solutions aimed at our real-life needs.TestKitchen_Logo_Final_lg (1)

Please take a few minutes to watch the DiabetesMine Test Kitchen Intro Video, and then peruse the first 18 reviews we've added to the site, listed below in alphabetical order.

The checkmarks tell you how each reviewer rated the product they were looking at, on a scale of 1-5.
