    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Managing Diabetes in Ten Minutes - the slideshow.

    Really? I think everyone here would agree that while the slideshow gives some helpful tips, no one manages their diabetes in ten minutes or less!

    I think WebMD should rethink that title and, in the future, consider the message they are trying to send and how it will be interpreted.

    If only it were that simple!

    Hmmm...looks like there's a new slideshow, just as I posted my message. My point remains, though.

    WebMD puts up crap like this to promote "subscribership", increase revenue, and keep people from leaving their sites.

    The "slideshow" was more of a "sideshow".

    I agree there is no way one can manage their diabetes in 10 minutes. Thanks for the "tips" but it took me 3 years to manage my diabetes and it is a daily commitment to stay on top of it not 10 minutes.

    Thanks for the heads up on that title Michelle.

    I've passed all comments along to the appropriate contact in the editorial department.

    I wish it was that simple too....I can't manage ANYTHING in 10 minutes

    And I just saw it again, so I guess it didn't go away.

    Thanks, Haylen, for passing on our thoughts about this.
