My name is Aieysha Alamoudi and I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes about 7 years ago. I am currently finishing my bachelor’s in Health Studies at Hodges University in Fort Myers, Florida. I am working on accruing more shadowing hours and have already applied to graduate school with the hope of entering a Physician Assistant program. I also hope to become a certified diabetic educator. I know that talking to others with the disease has helped me tremendously, so I hope that my future patients will benefit from having a member on their healthcare team who truly understands what it means to live with a chronic illness.
Considering my area of study and my interest in learning how to help myself and others to best manage our diabetes, I have chosen to do my research project on the topic. I have noticed that when I take exams my blood sugar tends to fluctuate excessively. While most write this off as stress or nerves, I have found that this even occurs when I am taking tests that do not count or that do not inspire any sense of stress. I have chosen to conduct an experiment comprised of a short test and survey in an effort to further understand just why I have this experience. However, in order to conduct this research, I need your help! If you are willing and have the time please complete the following tasks:
1. Check and make note of your blood glucose
2. Complete the 25 question sample test here: http://highered.mheducation.com/sites/0809222280/student_view0/ged_practice_test_pt_i.html
3. Check and make note of your BG again
4. Complete the short survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Z2L6GT5
You have completed the task! Thank you!
These results will all be compiled into a research paper and presentation. If you have any further questions, please contact me at Kizzle0@gmail.com. Anyone willing to help me with this project by taking the time to do the test and survey are so appreciated.
