Diabetes Hands Foundation
August 15, 2013

TuDiabetes literally saved my life, my health. The information I got on day-to-day management of T1 diabetes that's available here is priceless, and unique. Finding a place where I don't have to explain diabetes, explain the emotional ups and down, explain how tiring it can be to manage, is a gift.

I've had the privilege of watching people join the community who were in dire straits - and got the information and support they needed to gain control of their diabetes, rather than letting their diabetes control them. It's a pleasure and privilege to volunteer for an organization that provides so much for so many.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more funding so it can expand.

Diabetes Hands Foundation
December 13, 2012

Diabetes Hands Foundation is a grassroots organization, run by diabetics, for diabetics. Their programs provide understanding and assistance to an international community with diverse needs. Their websites - TuDiabetes.org and estudiabetes.org - each have around 25,000 members, more a family than a community. It's a safe place to go to get help, give help, or just be with others who 'get' what it's like to live with diabetes 24/7/365. 25,000 people means a LOT of experience. I've learned more about diabetes from the TuDiabetes community than I have from any medical professional.
