    Are you 18 or older, and do you have type 2 diabetes? Are you interested in increasing your engagement in healthy behaviors, like physical activity or a healthy diet? If so, we invite you to complete a research survey about health, emotions, and your opinions on text messages to promote health behaviors! The survey should take 15-20 minutes and is completely voluntary. Your responses will help us develop new, effective ways to help people with type 2 diabetes increase their health. If you are interested, please click the link below. Thank you!

    Indeed I fear they already think they know what "healthy" is.. a missed opportunity.

    Started the survey then stopped when I didn't find any of the suggestions helpful as I am already doing most of them. Often following helpful suggestions from this forum.

    I gave up as none of it seems relevant to me.

    Given that resounding and positive response, how did it receive approval in the first place?

    I’m always suspicious when the word “healthy” is used.

    I quicker decided they had no interest in us, eg requireing USA units for A1c and quoting US not NICE guild lines, hence I am not completing it.
