Diabetes Self-Management Blog

If you search for “diabetes,” Google’s search engine will return roughly 166 million results. Not only is the sheer number daunting, but there is no way to filter useful and reliable results from the rest. What if there were a better way to search for information and advice about diabetes?

Custom search engines are based off of Google’s search engine, but can be custom-tailored to a specific interest or topic. In the case of Diaboogle — created by diabetes technology blogger Bernard Farrell — each search will only return relevant articles from a listing of 1,500+ trusted Web sites, hand selected to include only high quality content from clinics, recognized organizations, support groups and blogs, and more. These sites include the National Institutes of Health, WebMD, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, the American Diabetes Association, and Diabetes Self-Management, amongst many others. Any money raised from Google’s advertising on the Web site will be donated to diabetes research.

You can find this useful tool at www.diaboogle.com.

  1. I think this is a great tool. Knowing that the sites being searched have been personally reviewed adds a fair amount of reliability to my search.

    Thank you Bernard!

    Thanks for telling people about Diaboogle. I spent part of the weekend adding a lot of summer camps for kids and teens with diabetes. We’re hoping that Diaboogle will be really useful for a lot of people.
