Things Are Changing!

The migration of TuDiabetes has begun

Content created between now and the launch of our new site on April 20th will NOT be moved to that new home, but our community values and Terms of Service still apply during this time.We are not accepting new members during this transition period. If you want to join the TuDiabetes community please send an e-mail to We will send you an invitation to join after the migration is completed.

Read about the migration and see images of the new site!

TuDiabetes gets to 14,000 members... but there's more!

So today, we reached the 14,000 member mark on TuDiabetes... and I thought it'd be illustrative to share some of the global stats not just about registered members, but also visitors to the community at large.

The chart below shows the figures for the past 30 days:

As you can see, while TuDiabetes still remains a largely US-centric community, the composition of our visitors (and members, too) is becoming more international. We have nearly 8% of our visitors every month coming from Canada and just under 5% of our monthly traffic from the UK. In total, in the past 30 days, we received more than 130,000 visits from 164 countries and territories around the world!

Regardless of WHERE you are coming from, if you are touched by diabetes and want to learn or share with others your lessons learned and questions lingering, welcome to the TuDiabetes family!!

This is a beautifully constructed site and I always feel that I am in an international community rather than a US one when I log in. Well done Manny et al on creating such a wonderful destination!

Hoorah to 14,000 members!

I'm the same as many here - to me Tudiabetes doesn't have any borders! Looking good Manny :)

Very impressive especially since the site is still in it's infancy. Well done Manny and staff.

I'm happy to be one of the ones contributing to the green piece of the pie. You've built a great community, and it's one of my "must visit" sites each and every day (often more than once), even if I don't have much time to do anything but read a post or two.
