As someone familiar with JDRF, I know how important clinical trials are. I have type 1 diabetes, and I’ve participated in a few different trials over the years.
I was one of the first people in NSW to trial an insulin pump many years ago and look at the benefit those bring!
I lead a pretty busy life, so often the question of trial participation is one of convenience; if it can fit into my schedule, I’m definitely keen. I always say, if the trial is of interest to you, get involved.
Diabetes management is much easier now than it used to be, and if we all hadn’t participated as much as we could then we wouldn’t be where we are today.
