With diabetes rates swelling, and diabetes-related issues becoming a concern for more and more Americans, many people are turning to social networking sites for answers.
Being diagnosed with diabetes is a life-altering event that is often scary. Social networking sites are full of members who are frustrated with their ineffectual attempts to get the answers they need – even when they ask their doctors.
The web is full of good information about diabetes care. Unfortunately, medically based web sites do not allow for two-way communication, and many social networks geared toward diabetics may not offer the most current or reliable information.
At Be Sure to Test, we wanted to create a web site that was not only a trusted diabetes resource, but also a fun and friendly community offering different perspectives and viewpoints. Joining our site allows you to:
- Connect with others in the diabetic online community and benefit from their experience.
- Get answers to your diabetes questions directly from a panel of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who work with diabetic patients on a daily basis.
- Share your story by writing your own blog, exchanging ideas in the forums, and posting your photos.
- Share videos that you find interesting and informative.
Our vision for Be Sure to Test is to offer you a life guide for living with and managing your diabetes, whether you are newly diagnosed and looking for answers, a veteran interested in connecting with others and sharing your strategies, a parent of a kid with diabetes, or a pregnant woman dealing with gestational diabetes.
