in spanish it means "your diabetes".

Thanks, pancreaswanted. Is that the meaning behind the name of this site too or just a possible explanation?

Manny, the dude that started the site is venezuelan and the spanish site is called estudiabetes (its your diabetes), so i think its the meaning behind the name. maybe Manny will come on here and explain.

Thanks again. I´m norwegian and spanish didn´t even cross my mind when trying to figuring out the meaning behind the name.

Wow! 400 members to where we are today! We have certainly outperformed the stock market since 2008...

Manny rocks. thank you a gazillion times! and everybody else behind tuD!

I second that :)

Siri, I had the same question and couldn't come up with the answer either. I developed my own answer.

There are a lot of different diabetes "types" - Type 1, Type 2, Type 1.5, Type 3, etc, etc, but regardless of which Type YOU have, it is YOURS. Using this as a background, I then reasoned that in this age of hip, fast-paced, emoticon and texting world, "you" gets shortened to "u" frequently, so ....

type u diabetes

OR

tudiabetes

It's Spanish for "your".

i like that!
