Diabetes Self-Management Blog

The Diabetes Self-Management Web team is excited to announce that its Web site, www.DiabetesSelfManagement.com, will be relaunched on Monday, September 24, with a fresh new design that adds some great new features.

DiabetesSelfManagement.com was recently named one of the Top 10 Diabetes Web sites by HealthCentral.com, and its new design will make it even easier for visitors to find the information they need. New features on the home page will include a diabetes-themed “Definition of the Day,” a menu of diabetes-friendly recipes that changes weekly, links to articles on the five most popular diabetes topics, and detailed information about the latest issue of Diabetes Self-Management magazine.

The redesigned site will continue to feature The Diabetes Self-Management Blog—an interactive feature updated every weekday where readers can get the latest diabetes news as well as tips and insights from health-care professionals and people with diabetes. Readers can also share their thoughts and questions by leaving comments on individual blog entries. The Diabetes Self-Management Blog is the winner of the 2007 Diabetes O.C. Blog Awards for “Best Blog” and “Best Diabetes News Blog.” Its bloggers are Amy Campbell, a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator; David Spero, a registered nurse and health coach; Jan Chait, a writer and Type 2 diabetes patient-expert; Eric Lagergren, a writer newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes; and Tara Dairman, the Diabetes Self-Management Web Editor.

At the new DiabetesSelfManagement.com, users will also be able to access hundreds of healthy recipes; read articles about every facet of living with diabetes; sign up for Diabetes Self-Management E-News, a free weekly e-mail newsletter full of tips for managing diabetes; request a free issue of Diabetes Self-Management magazine; and manage their magazine subscription online.
