Study Description

The UVA Center for Diabetes Technology seeks adults aged 21-65 years for a research study. You may be eligible for this study if you have had type 1 diabetes for more than a year and wear a Tandem insulin pump.

The purpose of this study is to test a computer program that might give additional information to users with type 1 diabetes about their blood glucose control and insulin changes. The program does this by allowing users to simulate changes to their diabetes treatment decisions. The program then shows the possible blood glucose outcomes of those changes.

This study involves four visits within about 35 days. These visits may be held in-person at the Clinical Research Unit or may held via a secure web-based video conferencing tool. Visit 1 is a screening visit where a physician will make sure it is safe for you to participate. They may ask for a finger-stick HbA1c if you do not have one from within 3 months. Visit 2 involves taking two surveys and study device training. Visit 2 may be combined with Visit 1. You will be asked to interact with the computer program at least once a week for about 5 weeks. Then you will return for Visit 3 and will take two more surveys. Visit 4 will be a follow-up interview to ask about your experience using the program.

If needed, study-related point-of care lab tests, pregnancy test, and Dexcom G6 sensors and transmitter will be provided free of charge.
