Brief Summary:
The present study is part of an overarching study being conducted in Denmark at Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen (SDCC) and Nordsjællands Hospital Hillerød (NOH), Steno Tech, that aims to develop and ultimately, in a randomized controlled trial (RCT), test approaches that can assist people with type 1 diabetes in obtaining optimal outcomes using CSII. Through a large-scale, questionnaire-based online survey enriched with data from national registers, this sub-study contributes to this overarching aim by exploring the importance of individual differences across a wide range of factors, including demographic, socioeconomic, health status, psychosocial and preference structures, for optimal use of CSII in people with type 1 diabetes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 1 Other: Questionnaire-based survey Other: No intervention given.

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Steno Tech Survey Respondents
A cohort of individuals with type 1 diabetes treated with CSII at either SDCC or NOH participating in the Steno Tech Survey.
Other: Questionnaire-based survey
The online questionnaire-based survey is composed of multiple items including pre-coded (multiple choice) questions, dichotomous (yes/no) questions, rating scales and validated questionnaire scales to measure general and diabetes/insulin pump-specific behavior, psychological concepts and preferences.

General Type 1 Diabetes Population
A cohort consisting of the entire population of people with type 1 diabetes in Denmark not included in the Steno Tech Survey cohort (ca. 25.000 individuals).
Other: No intervention given.
No intervention was given.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Glycated Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) [ Time Frame: 13 years (from 2008 (beginning of register) to present) ]
    Information on HbA1c in mmol/mol will be extracted from national registers


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Other diabetes-relevant biomarkers [ Time Frame: 13 years (from 2008 (beginning of register) to present) ]
    Biomarkers included at the regular diabetes 'check-up' other than HbA1c including hemoglobin, eGFR, UACR, cholesterol total, HDL, LDL, VLDL, triglycerides and TSH will be extracted from national registers

  2. General diabetes and insulin pump-specific behavior [ Time Frame: 1 day (measured at one time point only, i.e., at the survey completion date for each participant) ]
    Measured with single items in the survey

  3. Psychological well-being [ Time Frame: 1 day (measured at one time point only, i.e., at the survey completion date for each participant) ]
    Measured with the WHO5 questionnaire scale in the survey

  4. Diabetes distress [ Time Frame: 1 day (measured at one time point only, i.e., at the survey completion date for each participant) ]
    Measured with the Type 1 Diabetes Distress (T1-DDS) questionnaire scale in the survey

  5. Hypoglycemia anxiety [ Time Frame: 1 day (measured at one time point only, i.e., at the survey completion date for each participant) ]
    Measured with the Hypoglycemia Fear Survey short-form (HFS-SF) questionnaire scale in the survey

  6. Technology-specific satisfaction [ Time Frame: 1 day (measured at one time point only, i.e., at the survey completion date for each participant) ]
    Measured with the Insulin Device Satisfaction Survey (IDSS) and the Glucose Monitoring Satisfaction Survey (GMSS) questionnaire scales in the survey

  7. Educational, time and risk preferences [ Time Frame: 1 day (measured at one time point only, i.e., at the survey completion date for each participant) ]
    Measured with single items in the survey and experimental tasks
