Have you changed diabetes teams for your (or your child's) diabetes care?

Poll dates: May 30 - June 6, 1999
Total Votes: 414

Three out of five people reported being happy with the care they are receiving from their diabetes team. That means that two out of five -- 40% of people who responded to the poll -- are not or were not happy.

Of those who were unhappy, half were able to find a better team. The remaining half either cannot find a team they like better, are unable to change due to insurance company restrictions, or were changed by their insurance company and don't like their new team.
