Content and Policies
Online diabetes information can be technical, overwhelming, and sometimes scary. We try our very best to make the information understandable and accessible so you can make the best decisions for yourself and the people you love.
We have strict guidelines for sources and citations and rely on peer-reviewed studies, academic research institutions, government agencies, and medical associations. Primary sources, including studies, scientific references, and statistics, are linked within each article or at the end of the article.
