Just go to diabetessummit.com and register, if it is not too late. I registered the other day, and each day, there will be a list of videos to listen to and today I heard the one from the pharmacist, Suzy Cohen, and Dr. Josh Axe, and the last one was David Mendosa. Each of them have web sites that you can look up. Very interesting!! Every day I plan to go and listen to each one. This has probably been advertised on here, but I don't get on for long periods of time and have enough time to really look around here a whole lot, so I just wanted to be sure to let everyone know.

just finished day 3 … apparently you will be able to buy the whole thing for about $100 bucks … glad I started grabbing the videos and turning them into audio that will play on my iPod. Huge amount of information that will need more than one listen to appreciate.

I was able to listen to half of the day2, that I missed and most of today's already. I have been taking a few notes.

Today is all about problems you may not associate with diabetes, but nevertheless, can be significant contributors. For example, Izabella Wentz, The Thyroid Pharmacist will be discussing the thyroid-diabetes connection, Dr. Tom O'Bryan from The Gluten Summit will be sharing why gluten and grains can be triggers for diabetes, Liz Lipski will talk about the gut connection, and Amy Myers MD will be teaching us about functional medicine and how yeast (Candida) can impact blood sugar health.
Again, there are 2 ways to access today's presentations. First you can go to the event page, which is the hub for all of today's speakers and talks. From there, click on my presentation at the top to get an overview of the day. Then, you can go watch the ones that you want to watch in whatever order you choose. Secondly, you can click directly on the link in this email for each presentation.

Remember, today's presentations will be live at 10:00 am (EST) and will stay active until 10:00 am (EST) tomorrow when the next day's presentations are loaded. After the 24 hour viewing period, these talks will no longer be accessible.

I am so sorry, it is: www.thediabetessummit.com
I left out the word "the"
I have not been there yet today, but I will. I missed day two, but I just read in my email, that you can access all the days. Let me know what you all think I can't say I have learned a whole lot, having been daignosed in late 2008, but I do learn something new with each discussion.

I had not heard of this. Thank you so much for sharing. Unfortunately, it's the 8th already...but I guess some is better than none. Do you have the website where we can register?
