Curious where people go for headlines on research, events, new devices & developments. Do you use Google Alerts or any other sources that deliver updates? How do you rate the one(s) you subscribe to? Pros & cons?

Is this something you’d like to see more frequently on Tu?

Thanks for your thoughts & suggestions.

I figure if something happens someone will post about it here?

In addition to reading TuDiabetes on most days I also regularly follow DiabetesMine and diaTribe. Less frequently I check into the JDRF website for research news and any news on the Artificial Pancreas Project. These four sources seem to cover most of the diabetes news that interests me.

I sometimes check:

I added a custom section to Google news for diabetes as well as for low carb high fat diet and paleolithic life which has a lot of diet news items. These are all canned choices, I believe you can add a custom one of your own with your own choices for keywords.

Well there's never really any interesting news to me; it seems as though they've been reaching AMAZING milestones towards a cure since the dawn of man, and all research groups are separated and don't wanna cooperate and form alliances, so I got bored of the drama haha

On the days that I work, I tend to use Facebook so that I can have all the info coming in on one newsfeed. Bloodsugar 101 has a page which you can like. Jenny posts links and the members can comment. There is a TuD member who runs 2 Facebook groups. One is T2 and the other is Canadian. She too posts great links and members comment.

My favourite blog continues to be "Trials and Tribulations of a Type One Diabetic" . She has lots of great information including info about complications. Also, Natalie is developing a great blog.... "The Odd Duck Out".

The 2 FB groups mentioned above by Peetie are:



If you'd like to join either, please go to FB, sign in and then click on the link above and request to join.

Hey all. Would you like to see more news articles on TuDiabetes? If so, what kind of news would you be interested in? Research, new products, stories about people with diabetes...?

I kinda go with the new products and i LOVE to hear about ppl with Diabetes myself

My own personal preference is posts to a thread that contain some information with a link if I want to persue it further.Kind of like the headlines on my google gadgets. I'm not big on reading blogs, so if I just see a link with no description I ignore it. That's just me.

That's my preference also. I don't follow blogs. What type of news interests you?
