Thank you for the information. Report
The first link is a dud. Report
Our local hospital had a Diabetes Health Education Support Group which was very helpful to me. I highly recomment doing what is outlined in this article. Report
good article Report
I went to 2-8 hour classes and its the best decision I have ever made. Now they ask me to come back and to give a patient's point of view annually. Report
I would strongly suggest that all newly diagnosed patients see a diabetes educator at least once. Report
Educator can help us control our blood sugars. It is a very complicated matter and what works for one may not work for another. Diabetes is progressive, so there is that. Report
Even though I have insurance and am retired from the service; I have found the dietician in the local hospital very helpful and have never been charged. Report
The first linked resource produces a 404-Page Not Found error message. I googled the document and found the corrected link (current as of fall, 2017) to be:

While I appreciate Spark is a free Site.. I am concerned that many times the article references are old. They show up today as a topic, and when you click on it, the article is from 2010. That is concerning.

That being said, the information is still valid. The funny thing about Diabetes is that there are so many variables. While a half Apple might make my blood sugar rise, for someone else it's not an issue. I think it's important to learn about your body and how your body reacts to certain things. Meeting with your doctors, and getting the appropriate tests are important. Being educated about the disease and it's potential complication are imperative. Prevention is a powerful tool Report
Good info Report
My nutritionist was ok but I got the best help from joining Sparkspeople, the diabetes program. You watch your protein, carbs, and fat every day plus many other things. You can see each day if you are eating right or wrong and there are challenges, articles, and much more. Report
