Diabetes Stories 

The website for the project my mother's been working on for the past two years was launched today. It contains recordings and transcripts of 50 interviews she conducted with diabetes patients of all ages across the UK. It's pretty good, whether or not you're interested in the subject matter.

The idea behind the project, which was funded by the Wellcome Trust, was to try to get a picture of patients' experiences from the beginning of the last century, when diabetes was mostly a death sentence, up to now, when researchers are hoping to find a cure. It's a lot more interesting than it sounds, but of course it is mostly intended for those with a prior interest in diabetes, whether patients/families or researchers. I thought I'd do my filial duty and give it a link anyway, though.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a diabetes related site. Most of the articles are on diabetes.  
Hmm, I also stumbled in here via the Diabetes post. Interesting stuff!

Now if you want to read something REALLY DIFFERENT (and really REAL) on the subject, visit me at www.diabetesmine.com

Cheers,
