Here is a site that rewards you points while you learn more, and more about diabetes!

(The points are redeemable for "Free" Diabetes related merchandise!)

Gabby (Patient Advocate) here at Diabetic Connect posted a link to this site in a response to a discussion, and I find this site to be very informative, as well as rewarding.


Take a peek at it!
(Thanks Gabby!)

Yes, this is a super site! Having been T2 for over 20 yrs (still sounds so long to me?!) I didn't feel I knew everything…and also doubted that I would learn anything else! But this site had some info that was new to me. And is interesting. I went when Gabby posted it. Thanks!

Thanks Mays! Everyone will enjoy this site. It is a lot of fun and they have improved it a lot if you had been on it when they first opened it. It has grown and you can earn some great things. I have gotten all kinds of goodies just for learning more about diabetes.

I've got glucose tablets, gel and drink, glucose meters, dreamfields pasta, a temp touch and a bunch of other things. I have to say it's a cool site for a while but I don't know what long term value it really has.

It gets a little old if you rifle through it, but it is good refresher and they are always adding new things, so go back for a visit if you have not been in a while. Like KD, I have gotten Extend bars, the temp touch, wound care bandages, glucose tabs, and A1c kit, and lots more. The things you can earn changes too, so there might be far more new things there.

Thank you for posting the original link!

Back when DC was first starting, they had posted a link to encourage us in our self education. I really like the site a lot. I need to go check in on them again, as it has been several months since I have been there.
