About Diabetes Self-Management

Established in 1983, Diabetes Self-Management is a publisher of authoritative, reliable health information for the growing number of people with diabetes who want to know more about controlling and managing their diabetes. We publish a bimonthly magazine, a weekly e-mail newsletter, a number of books, and a blog.

Our magazine, Diabetes Self-Management, offers up-to-date, practical “how-to” information on nutrition, exercise, new drugs, medical advances, self-help, and the many other topics people need to know about to stay healthy. In the 2012 National Health Information Awards, Diabetes Self-Management dominated the consumer diabetes field, bringing home 23 prizes for an extraordinary 15-year total of 367 awards. No other diabetes publication can match that record. Additionally, our Web site was recognized with both a gold award in the 2010 Web Health Awards competition and a silver award in the 2010 W3 Awards Competition.

On this Web site, you’ll find The Diabetes Self-Management Blog—a roundup of tips, knowledge, and insights about diabetes self-care written by health-care professionals and people with diabetes, as well as reports about late-breaking diabetes news. You can also sign up for our free e-mail newsletter and read a selection of articles from past issues of Diabetes Self-Management magazine.
