6 Patient Feedback – Type 2 Diabetes “This tool is extremely valuable. When I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, I did not get what I needed from the doctor. This would have been ideal for me.” “This is valuable information that one needs to know for long-term survival.” “ I just learned something new reading this and I have had diabetes for a while.” “I really like the quizzes at the end of each chapter – you think you know (the answer) but this helps confirm you know the correct information.” “The audio is helpful especially when I have trouble with my eyes. “ “I did not get a lot of this when I was diagnosed. …it tells you what you are doing and why you are doing it.”
