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.

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!
