    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,

    I was diagnosed with Type 2 in September of last year. This book has been a Godsend. It is laid out by day/month in living and learning sections to teach both about the disease and how to live with it. I recommend any newly diagnosed Type 2 read this book, it will help make sense of all the information you are being given and the emotions you are feeling.

    Thanks for the book recommendation. I'm always looking for books that people find helpful. I've heard recommendations for The I Hate to Exercise Book for People with Diabetes; has anyone read that? ~Lynn @Glucerna
