Diabetic Heart questionnaire
I'm doing research to help improve the care of patients with Diabetes Type 2. My particular interest is in helping to create a system that would help individuals monitor and manage their cardiovascular risk. Please see below the context of my study. There are only a handful of questions I'd like you to answer. I will greatly appreciate your help.

Introduction

There is a clear, demonstrable and urgent need to improve the management of the common cardiovascular complications of diabetes.

As a clinical scientist interested in cardiovascular complications of diabetes and a cardiology consultant, I am passionate about developing novel, innovative ways of managing heart diseases in people with Diabetes Type 2.

According to the WHO reports the number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014. This number is estimated to increase to 552 million by 2030. In 2016, an estimated 1.6 million deaths were directly caused by diabetes and occurred before the age of 70 years. The risk of death from cardiovascular causes among individuals with Type 2 Diabetes is up to four times that of the general population.

My aim is to provide a step-change in the clinical approach towards improving cardiovascular outcomes in patients with diabetes. At this stage, I am exploring the potential of an innovative approach to managing heart diseases in people with Diabetes Type 2 based on the assessment of their overall heart disease risk. I am interested to learn from patients whether they may benefit from re-designing that tool to make it more available for them. I would like to learn about people's views and needs on whether such tools would have a place in their daily lives.

I would be most grateful if you could take the time to answer a few questions below.
