Web links: Diabetes info

January 1, 2008

A listing of links about all types of diabetes that help explain what diabetes is, what other diseases and conditions it's associated with, and how to treat it.

It was a very sad day when "adult-onset diabetes" was replaced in the nomenclature by "type 2 diabetes." So many overweight children had it, it had to be renamed so that it would apply to children as well as grown-ups. These links, about all types of diabetes, help explain what diabetes is, what other diseases and conditions it's associated with, how to treat it, and even ways that it might make one's life better in the long run.
