Some diabetic webby stuff

I’m a type 1 diabetic, which means I have to inject myself with insulin four times a day. It’s great. Anyway, I like to keep my eye out for interesting webby stuff that’s happening in connection with diabetes, and a couple of things have emerged just lately.

Diabetes doodle

A petition has been started online to try and persuade Google to do one of their nice little customised logos for world diabetes day. Cute.

Diabetes log

Is a cool iPhone app that lets you record everything from what you eat, what your blood sugar levels are and what medication you have taken. Makes building up a picture of where you’re at with managing your diabetes brilliantly.

Online communities

TuDiabetes is a great Ning based community of diabetics, with a pretty strong US focus. We don’t have anything like it in the UK, other than a couple of facebook groups and pages, though there is a diabetes support forum.

  1. Dave – very interesting although I think there is a problem with the link for tudiabetes which comes out as tubdiabetes (or did at least for me). fortunately no problem in a google world.
