Diabetes Articles Library
Diabetes articles, written by a wide variety of people, are one of the most interesting aspects of my research for this website. The people who write these diabetes articles come from different backgrounds, but one thing they all have in common is an interest in diabetes.
The interest may be because they have the disease themselves or it may be because a friend or relative is diabetic. In other cases the interest is professional from a medical or medical reesarch point of view. In each case they have responded to an urge to write one of these diabetes articles for everyone's benefit.
This library of diabetes articles is a collection I've gathered which I believe adds value to the information you can already find on this site. Some are stories about a diabetic's experiences; others are diabetes articles containing tips and advice that may help you with your diabetes control.
I'd like to thank everyone whose diabetes articles are included in this library for their generous sharing of this information.

Unless someone is diabetic, or very close to someone who is, they do not realize how life changing this disease can be.

Diabetes is a very serious and scary chronic illness. It is totally life changing for those diagnosed... [read more...]
