Online sources of diabetes information – Part 3

The following sites are just small fraction of the sites available. I will continue to list more sites in the weeks ahead. Some of the sites listed resulted from a email request I received.

http://www.idf.org/  The website for the International Diabetes Federation. The one organization that seems to do more for diabetes patients than either the American Diabetes Association and the JDRF put together.

I also like that they are leading the ideas for universal diabetes symbol of a white area outlined by a blue circle. I will consider using there symbol as I doubt the ADA and JDRF will ever get behind one single symbol.

http://diabetes.about.com/  This is a decent site and has much helpful information for all types of diabetes. The link with take you to the type 2 diabetes area. When you have time, you may want to explore some of the other areas – I receive the weekly newsletters (some are almost daily and others are monthly).

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diabetes/DS01121/TAB=expertblog   I hesitated in supporting this site as in the past they have placed too much emphasis on too many carbohydrates. But, then they moved away from the topic and have had some reasonable information that is of value. Not always the best, but at least useful and can be adapted.

http://www.drugs.com/sfx/  This is not complete, but it does have its value for those who may need to look up the side effects of the medications they are taking.

http://www.cdc.gov/  This takes you to the main page and then you may research whatever you desire on the Centers for Disease Control.

http://www.cdc.gov/diabetes/projects/cda2.htm  This is a section of the above site that is aimed at the types of diabetes in children.

http://www.fda.gov/  This is the main page for the Food and Drug Administration.

http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/  One of the better sites for parents of children with diabetes. Mostly this is for parents of children for type 1 diabetes. This is still an excellent site.

http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/d_0n_d00.htm  This is the same site above, and is a section of the site aimed at children with type 2 diabetes.

http://forums.childrenwithdiabetes.com/  This is the forum site and is for parents of children with all types of diabetes. This is one of the best forum sites for this that I have come across.

http://integrateddiabetes.com/#  A commercial site aimed primarily for type 1 people with diabetes. The section for type 2 adults is not available presently.

http://kidshealth.org/parent/medical/endocrine/type2.html  This is another site and the section is aimed at children with type 2 diabetes.

While I have only scratched the surface for type 2 diabetes in children, use your search engine and enter “type 2 children with diabetes” or “juvenile type 2 diabetes” and this will display many sites and list other search possibilities at the bottom of the page.

If anyone wants more information or is looking for something about diabetes, contact me by my email on my profile page, and I will assist where I am able to help you find it.
