    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.

    For The Newly Diagnosed Diabetic or Prediabetic...
    brunosbud posted:

    The average John or Jane that's newly diagnosed with diabetes has a big problem. Not only do they know very little about the disease, they don't even know what questions to ask. So, they wind up looking down at their shoes and shaking their head, no, when their doctor asks, "Do you have any questions for me?"

    I watched this series of short 1 minute videos on diabetes by this endocrinologist, last night. If I was first diagnosed with diabetes, today, I'd sit down, tonight, and review the Q & A with this gentleman.
    There's a million questions that need answers before you can achieve a modest level of comfort with diabetes. If you can't think of any, then, start with these...and maybe, then, you can start thinking of some of your own.
