I guess I was right about blogs being tailor made for the diabetes community. Boy was I right! Everyone I come in contact with seems to be starting a new D-Blog (very flattering, I might add.)
On Sunday I got an email from David Kliff of Diabetes Investor, whom I met with and profiled recently -- and who has just now launched his own blog, DiabetesRealWorld. David writes me: "I feel that I can learn from others and use this knowledge to better understand the market. I truly believe that people with diabetes can help each other and forums like yours and mine can do nothing but help." Here's hopin! I'll be adding him to my "Professional D-Blogs" section at left.
And there are many, many more new D-blogs to watch. To mention a few:
Mr. Dawn Phenomenon
Diabetes Wise out of the UK
Diabetes at Home
My Son Has Diabetes
Olsen Family Diary
Butterfly Kisses & Bedtime Prayers
Lala's Hilo Log
And DiabetesNotes, edited by Maruthi

Also worth mentioning is a new forum on the weight loss effects of Byetta. I don't usually plug semi-commercial sites like this one here, but since Byetta is so HOT, and weight loss is so... well, so... HOT, I thought I'd pass it on.

In our community, the TCOYD (Taking Control of Your Diabetes) series of national diabetes education conferences is known and loved by thousands. But until now -- believe it or not -- they haven't had a web-based home to really unite their fans and...
