Welcome to the My Diabetes My Way Newsletter for August 2019.
25,000 Active Users!
This month, My Diabetes My Way had its 25,000th user log in to access their diabetes records. We would like to thank everyone for contributing to this achievement and hope you continue to find the service useful in supporting your diabetes management. In addition to people logging in to access their diabetes records, many more people from around the world make use of the information available on the website to help them manage their condition.
We have recently added some new questionnaires that allow you to assess your mental health and general wellbeing. The aim of these questionnaires are to allow you to self-assess areas where you may benefit from talking to your healthcare team. When you complete these assessments, we will provide you with a summary that explains your result, further guidance on what you can do next, and links to information that may help you.
When you log in to My Diabetes My Way and select "My Home Data", you will see two new assessments:
1. Mental Health Test: Indicates if you are suffering from, or are at risk of depression
2. Wellbeing Test: Assesses your general wellbeing and how you are feeling
Both of these questionnaires have recently been recommended internationally as the standard methods of assessment for wellbeing and mental health (https://www.ichom.org/portfolio/diabetes/).

My Diabetes My Way User Survey
In September, we will be launching a new user survey to allow you to give us your feedback. Your responses to this survey will help us to assess the My Diabetes My Way service and help us to plan future developments. All responses will be stored securely and our analysis will be entirely anonymous. This should only take around five minutes of your time. We will be in contact with further details in around two weeks time.
