Diabetes Blogroll

Blogroll_!When I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 24 in 1976, it never dawned on me that talking with other people would change my day-to-day life with diabetes.  We were years away from home computers.  I read pamphlets and a few books, but that was it.

Fast forward to 2014.  I have daily contact with people who have diabetes and I have friends all over the country (and world) who are part of the Diabetes Online Community. My life has been greatly enriched by every blog I’ve visited, every message board I’ve participated in, every podcast I’ve listened to and every Tweet I’ve read.

Below you’ll find a list of websites, message boards, and blogs that I read along with a few podcast recommendations.  Some I read every day.  Some I check in on in response to a Tweet or when I’m sitting at the computer with time to spare.

If I have neglected to list your blog, contact me and I’ll be sure to add you!
