A Site for Us D-Gals

Speaking of the myriad new social networking sites popping up for us PWDs — like ‘em or not — I just discovered a new place for women with diabetes to “get support, get motivated, and get informed,” not to mention go shopping. It’s called DiabetesSisters.com, founded by Brandy Barnes of Hickory, North Carolina, a 32-year-old mom who’s had Type 1 for 18 years.


In brief, the site offers:

  • Blogs from women with Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetes in Pregnancy, and a College Student with Diabetes.
  • A Forum for women with diabetes to ask each other questions
  • A Diabetes Buddy support system to connect women in need of support
  • Two stores dedicated specifically to the needs of women with diabetes (an Amazon Bookstore & a “Taking Care of You Store” featuring purses, organizers and supplies)

Go check it out, Ladies. Love to hear your impressions.
