1. Experience with continuous sensor

This survey is for people who have tried continuous blood glucose monitoring products. We are trying to better understand what product features you like and dislike; your opinion is very meaningful to us as we try to learn more about the needs of patients with diabetes. The survey should take 15 minutes or less, and we will donate US$25 for each completed survey to one of three diabetes-related organizations (your choice). You do not have to identify yourself unless you would like to participate in future research surveys, in which case we'll ask for your email address.
