Welcome home Pete!
Take a peek at some the groups when you get a chance. Just go to the top of your page, and click on "Groups". Once in, you can either peruse the wide array of available groups....or simply type a specific interest in the space provided. Take in some of the blogs/discussions as well. The house in the photo is where Dr. Frederick Banting lived and had his medical practice in London, Ontario, Canada...before going to the University of Toronto to work on diabetes research, and ultimately the discovery of Insulin.
Hope you find the support and information you came looking for. Here are a few useful links to get you on your way:
If you click on "About Us" on the top banner, you will find the explanation of the founding of TuDiabetes and the name
Take care....and keep in touch!
