What does unacceptably low blood sugar levels mean to you?

When we rely on self-report when asking people about their health an obvious problem is to make sure that the person being asked the question understands the question the same way that the investigator does. Often, what looks like an easy question for the respondent to answer may in fact pose a number of difficulties for the respondent.

One such area of particular importance for people with diabetes and the health professional is experiencing low blood sugar levels or hypoglycemia and the potential consequences this can have for the patient.  Therefore, when asking people about their sugar levels using a questionnaire, it’s essential that the question is understood to mean the same thing to everyone.

At DHP Research we are currently carrying out some research with people with diabetes to see how they describe an unacceptable low blood sugar level?

If you have any type of diabetes we would like your help by answering a very short questionnaire. It will take only a couple of minutes and your answers will be totally confidential. If you would like more information on the research please contact DHP Research: info:dhpresearch.com

Thank you for your help

If you know someone with diabetes please pass on this post
