Hi and welcome! I have found people to be very knowledgeable and helpful on this team. Post often to ask any questions you may have or just to let us know how you're doing. There's a lot of support, encouragement, and great advice to be had here.
You may have already discovered it, but if you go to the orange toolbar near the top of the page and look under the "Articles and Videos" tab, you'll find a Diabetes Program. The Condition Centers has a Diabetes section, as well. You should be able to find great resources at those places.
We're glad to have you on the team!
