Back to Surveys Teenagers and Friends

A Survey for Teenagers with Diabetes

We are going to do a study on teenagers with diabetes. We want to know in what ways friends or other people help you in taking care of your diabetes. Since not everybody will be supportive to you we also want to know how friends and other other people make it difficult for you to keep your diabetes under control. Therefore we ask you for help, because you are the real experts. You are the ones who know what it means to have diabetes and how friends and other people help or interfere with your diabetes management.

Please give us some examples about what your friends or other people do or say that:

A. Makes it EASIER for you to handle your diabetes; something which you you find SUPPORTIVE and which you really appreciate.

B. Makes it MORE DIFFICULT for you to handle your diabetes; something which you find NOT SUPPORTIVE AT ALL and which you do not appreciate at all.
