There are so many new tools and gadgets such as new and improved meters and pumps and insulin pens that are coming out on the market as well as some other cool tools to help us control our diabetes. But how do you learn about them? I am lucky to hear about new products through some newsletters and emails but I don't know how much I really get. So I am curious how the rest of you hear about new products or if you hear about them?

Hi I am new here. This is my first response. I have type 2 and I Google for information. On new tools for diabetics. A lot of the information on the tools are still in clinical trials. Also the companies have information. This is what I do.

Welcome padre to the community! I have found as you have that there is a lot of info out there on the internet. But you have to go search for it. I find it frustrating sometimes when I hear about a new great product, then find out it is still in clinical trials. I almost always forget about it by the time it comes out on the market.

Thanks for your feedback. It is always nice to hear what everyone else is doing.
