It can be hard to parse the reliable health info online from the fiction. What sites do you go to for reliable health information? Why do you like those sites?

A guest blogger shared some of her favorite resources for general health info with us in the "Living with Diabetes" section: But we'd love to hear your suggestions - for general health or diabetes!

I found a great site they are for all things health. They have partnered with all the major health organisations in Australia, they have health experts answering Questions, there are forums, and Q&A's. GREAT SITE targeted at the Australian market 2012-02-13 10:38:19 -0600 Report

I suggest my web site .
Follows the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association

My goal is to help people with diabetes reduce their risk for developing heart disease by making better use of the tools available in their doctors office . Patients empowered by knowledge and understanding become full partners in their own health care. My discussions are filtered through the wisdom gained from my patients in over 40 years as a Diabetes Specialist.

Well first off I check to see if someone on the site is trying to sell something. To me that is a big tip-off (and turn off) to be careful of information on that particular site. I will do a bit more checking elsewhere to confirm if the info there is accurate or just a sales ploy. And even if it does show itself to be accurate, I often hesitate to offer it.

When I post a site to a discussion I usually end up posting from one of the National Institutes of health sites, or something put out by the Federal government in some way. I also use Mayo clinic, Web MD, Joslin, or studies from online journals like JAMA ect.
