I'm an RN - 19 years under my belt with about 15 of those with diabetes.
Used to teach a self-management class to inmates at a max prison. We had a ball- and I think I may have drilled a little bit of information into their thick skulls!

Hi, im a co-founder of a free diabetes tracking and management site., as well as a father of a diabetic. Always interterested in how we can use the internet to help diabetics track and manage, as well as educate, including friends and family. Obviously tudiabetes is one great way.

Hey all..RN here but retired. I now use my skills to assist my husband with T1 diabetes. It really helps being a nurse, and I have been able to take CE courses on diabetes. I am interested in learning more and more. I still keep my husband involved as much as possible, and I have learned so much from him. He has been a diabetic since the early 1960s! I have no doubt that he could teach classes on this disorder.

I'm a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator. I work with women that have gestational diabetes. I am a pump trainer for Matria/Alere using minimed and Cosmo. Today I was trained on the OmniPod.
