    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,

    hi I am Dezera I just got type one diabetes last mouth and I was very scared. But it is getting better as I go. What I do not get is how I got it anyway. I am only 14 years old and it fills like I gave up my life for this. I do not fill like myself half of the time. Plus I just got sick with a cold and it is no fun

    Hello Dezera and welcome.

    WebMD has an excellent Diabetes Health Center that has a good overview of Type 1 Diabetes. Here is a link: http://www.webmd.com/diabetes/guide/diabetes-overview-facts

    You need to learn all you can about this disease so you can control it and live a full live. Do more research on the internet, ask your doctor and your parents lots of questions. If you take care of yourself and do what you need to you will be fine.
