This blog is written and edited by Editor-in-Chief Amy Tenderich and Managing Editor Mike Hoskins, with some regular contributors and occasional guest authors.

As of Jan. 1, 2015, we are a part of Healthline Media based in San Francisco. This is our parent company that essentially serves as our publisher, while we maintain editorial control over what is and isn’t written on DiabetesMine. Prior to that, this blog was a part of Utah-based Alliance Health Networks from 2011 to 2013, and at all other times was owned by TnT Initiatives.

DiabetesMine does not accept any form of paid or commercial editorial content. However, we will and do accept and keep free products* that we may decide to write about; along with services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations. That also may include cash compensation as a result of consulting arrangements.

While the above may help us decide whether to write a post, it does not influence our opinions. The blog owners are not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites or other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners’ — i.e. we share our honest opinions about products or services, good or bad, based on our expertise.

All advertising spots are clearly identified as such, and appear separately from editorial post content.
