OPEN Project is a European-based study about diabetes management, inclusive of loopers, non-loopers and caregivers/support network of people with diabetes. This survey is for ANY/ALL folks with Type 1 diabetes and their supporters (parents, spouses, etc.).  If you are on Tandem Control IQ or Medtronic 670G or on any insulin pump or on MDI (injections), PLEASE TAKE THIS SURVEY!!!  It officially closes at the end of November, so time is of the essence!


How can YOU help?

First and foremost, we would like you to fill out all the questions in our survey. When you start the survey, a random number, the participant ID, will be generated for you – we will never ask for your name or other identifying information.  Your data will be kept anonymous!

We are also planning to run important follow-up studies. The ONLY way to get in touch with you about this will be if you also join Open Humans, so we can message you anonymously.

You can donate your device data, too!

You will also have the option to anonymously donate your device data (e.g. from Nightscout). This would GREATLY HELP our aim of exploring improvements to the (DIY)APS experience for all, now and in the future.
