      We’re glad you found us too! Where do you live? For now, consider making a profile on tudiabetes.org to connect with others and get answers to any questions you may have – the community is a fantastic support. And happy to hear you’re ready to advocate too!

  2. This is a very awesome online resource which has really touched me, the information shared here is really perfect and I should believe will definitely touch the hearts of all diabetic people who will come across it.

    Please continue with this precious work which you are sharing here. The discussion forum tudiabetes which you suggested is a very interesting platform on which diabetes people of the world can meet and share information regarding so many issues offcourse including experiences of each and every member.

    Again thanks for the share,
