In this episode of the Blogging Diabetes Podcast I cover one of the hardest questions I get asked.  Since I’ve been asked many times I thought it would be a good opportunity to spend some time answering it so I can point people in the future to this podcast to start.

Question: ____ was just diagnosed with diabetes.  What resources or information could you give to him/her?

There are SO MANY great websites, blogs and resources for those with diabetes.  It was difficult to name a short list and I left off many folks that honestly should be in the list.  One of the big issues I imagine with those diagnosed with diabetes now or in the future is information overload. I tried to keep the list short, but if anyone wants a specific resource that is much narrower in scope, please contact me.  Or, if you want more great people to talk to about diabetes just let me know and I can add to this short list. I apologize to the hundreds of people that I didn’t list.

This podcast is really intended to be a good starter resource about those newly diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

Please add to my list or add any additional thoughts for those newly diagnosed in the comments below.  This podcast could really have easily been 3 hours long.  Feel free to pass this along if you get asked where to start with someone newly diagnosed.

I hope you enjoy the episode and have a great weekend!
