The follow-up interview is very important for the study and for gaining a better understanding of health and wellbeing over time in diabetes. Your participation is greatly appreciated.
If you agreed to participate in the follow-up portion of the study in 2015, you will be contacted between October and December 2015.
If, at the time of the first interview, you did not agree to participate in the follow-up, but would now like to participate, please contact us.
