Diabetes Self-Management Blog

Have you ever gotten great advice about managing diabetes that you know you couldn’t have found in a textbook or at your doctor’s office? Elizabeth Edelman, who blogs at Diabetes Daily, knows the feeling. To help people share these sorts of helpful suggestions, she has set up a “Wikibetes” site called "Best Advice You Won’t Find in a Book."

The site collects advice on diabetes management from people with diabetes throughout the blogosphere. Each blogger is asked to post five of his or her favorite pieces of advice and link to the Wikibetes site, where the tips are collected for all to see.

The advice runs the gamut from the general to the specific and ranges over almost every aspect of diabetes management. There are tips on managing stress and keeping things in perspective as well as advice on how best to conceal insulin pumps and what foods to eat for episodes of hypoglycemia.
