I think the product review section is great for diabetes products but what about a section either in discussions or a new area that we can recommend products that aren't necessaraly marketed for diabetics but help us manage or just make our lives easier. Oh and here again adding pictures and links would be great. (this should not be an area for people to advertise and doing so should be a violation to the community)

I added a recipe that uses ziplock steam bags. These bags have changed the way I eat. I can steam fish, vegetable, chicken etc. at work and since I work 10-12 hour night shifts at the hospital this is HUGE. I can throw some carrots in one bag and a piece of chicken or fish with seasonings in another bag and I'm off to work. Before this if I was running late my only option was the vending machine. I would love a section where I could put up a link to ziplocks website, a picture, link to some recipes in the recipe section, and type up why this product is important to me in the care of my diabetes. Hope this explains it well.

Brooke,

This is a great idea! As an "inexperienced" diabetic, only diagnosed last year, I would love to see some "tips & tricks" from some of the veterans or even the creative diabetics who have been recently diagnosed. It would be really nice if this feature could be added. Thanks for a great suggestion. Hope the "powers that be" can find a way to make it work.

Take care,
Bren

Brooke,
I'm intrigued by your idea. What kind of products did you have in mind? Maybe there's a category we could add to the product review. Or maybe it needs a whole new section.

John
