Hello Dear Tudiabetes users!
I am student of Danish School of Media and Journalism and i am currently working on a project focusing on "how social media helps patience with diabetes". We need personal testimonies so I am looking for participants who would be willing to do a skype interview with me..! I am sure we can have a lot of fun during the process!
Dont hesitate to contact me, i am very looking forward to talking to you and getting to know about your wishes, needs, experience and ideas!

I've been a member of TuDiabetes for awhile, but have been out of the loop for some time. I have three boys, two w/ T1 diabetes. I am a fb addict and can't wait to get start advocating again and becoming more involved in the TuDiabetes community!

Hi my TuD friends! I have a weird type of diabetes. Most just refer to it as t1, but it is akin to cystic fibrosis-related diabetes, but not for sure, and I have an immune response that causes immune modulating t1 diabetes (different from autoimmune). I have very little of my own immune system. I'm 25, will have my 10 year diaversary next month! Pumping for 9 years and on a CGMs for almost a year.

I blog actively and have a Facebook page related to my blog and diabetes : OR my personal page
