- Usenet newsgroups are always a great place to look for information on the internet. Several focus on diabetes:
- misc.health.diabetes was one of the earliest diabetes newsgroups. The focus is more on adult issues than kids.
- alt.support.diabetes focuses on adults, primarily with type 2 diabetes.
- alt.support.diabetes.kids, while about diabetes in kids, receives very little traffic.
Before you begin your quest for knowledge on a newsgroup, you should always read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). So check out the Usenet Diabetes FAQ, written by Edward Reid. It's an excellent place to start to find information about diabetes.
