Welcome to our diabetes resources section
Here at DiabetesMonitor, we endeavor to provide you with the best information about nutrition, physical activity, supplies, glucose meters and more. However, we also want to be a place within the diabetes community where you can hear others stories, receive encouragement and advice and connect with other individuals living with diabetes.
In our Resources, you'll find content that includes helpful links to diabetes support organizations, blogs we love and diabetes influencers that you should get to know. We've also launched two new initiatives, a blog and and Ask the Expert section.
The Diabetes Collective
First, the blog. We're calling it the Diabetes Collective. We want it to be a place where like-minded individuals can come together, connect and tell their stories about diabetes. We have a cohort of diabetes bloggers, including one of the leading voices online today, Scott Johnson of Scott's Diabetes. Be sure to visit the Diabetes Collective often, as our bloggers will be writing about a bevy of topics--from supplies to support, their personal stories to the latest news about diabetes.
