    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,

    The numbers in your post are dangerously low. You need to get medical attention asap.

    Kristen, this is a community made up of diabetics, both Type 1 and Type.

    No one can diagnose over the internet. You would have to talk to a medical professional.

    Kristin, has your doctor told you that you have diabetes? That's the first place to start. I'm not sure why you've been testing your blood sugar if you haven't been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes? ~Lynn @Glucerna
