The Hypocritic Oath

More Diabetes Resources

The problem with a shortlist is that by definition it is short.

This leaves off many useful resources. However to add them all would make a list so long people would be born, live and die before completing reading it. Like my Bookmarks.

So here are some more sites of use and benefit

Gretchen Becker’s blog

Her previous blog is here

She now appears to be duplicating the content but the replies differ. Frankly I find the Healthcentral blogs to run with all the speed of a snail on valium, David Mendosa and others have blogs there.

Mendosa has excellent links to the

Glycemic Index

Satiety Index

and Insulin Index

A couple of downloadable pdfs:

Derek Paice made his research available here

Maggie Davey made her story available, the pdf is here

For insulin users, not only for pumpers  Insulin Pumpers also has a UK site

Check what your Lab Tests mean  – again there’s a UK site

For information on medications and their interractions there’s and rxlist

A couple of Medscape CME papers. Medscape requires registration but they don’t spam you and are a valuable source of “what your doctor should know” written by experts in their fields. Worth noting though that they concentrate almost totally on drug treatments, and some papers appear to be little more than advertising puffs – always check the Disclosures at the end.

Mission Control is a pretty elderly paper now but still valuable in looking at the natural history of (uncontrolled) diabetes and the reasons for getting a handle on it as proactively as possible, while

New Mechanisms updates the information with respect to modern medications and relatively newly discovered pathways.

Frank Roy has a massive collection of information on Insulin Resistance but I’m not sure how recently it has been updated.

Some shorter but interesting posts from Stephan on the same subject: Thoughts On Obesity Part 2 (part 1 is also worth a read), and one on Visceral Fat

More is going to be added here but I keep getting distracted . . . meanwhile here’s a pretty excellent resource on the subject – provided you take into account the confusion he had (corrected) on the distinction between Type 1 and Type 2 vs. the old categories of IDDM/NIDDM

The Definitive Guide to Insulin, Blood Sugar & Type 2 Diabetes (and you’ll understand it)

While you’re there check out the rest of his Primal 101

You may as well read the entire rest of the site while you’re there. Then try the forums. By the time you’ve done that it might have given me a few months to finish what I started . . .
