The International Diabetes Federation is a worldwide alliance of over 230 national diabetes associations in more than 160 countries, who have come together to enhance the lives of people with diabetes everywhere.

LivingVertical was founded in August 2011 By Steve and Stefanie Richert to inspire and empower the diabetes community to take control of their lives and health through adventure.
By doing this we hope to redefine the way others see their challenges and limitations–through our films and climbing projects, while sharing our continuing journey with you. We are currently living full time on the road in a 13′ travel trailer, pursuing adventure and bringing together a community of other people with diabetes who refuse to be defined by their diagnoses.

Raising Teens with Diabetes: A Survival Guide for Parents
Hormones. Growth spurts. Mood swings. All combined with blood sugars.
The teen years with diabetes on board are a challenging time for parents and anyone who cares about a child with diabetes. Raising Teens with Diabetes: A Survival Guide for Parents, by well-known diabetes mom, author, and advocate Moira McCarthy, is a no-nonsense, honest approach at not just surviving but thriving in those years, from a mom who has been there.
Raising Teens with Diabetes is a must-have resource for anyone navigating the waters of parenting a child with diabetes.
I’m Roddy Riddle, ex-international road cyclist and type 1 diabetic. I was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 40, and up until that point, I knew very little about the condition. My website is about raising awareness of type 1 diabetes and inspiring people to take more control of their condition so they can lead a life without limits. I am living proof that it can be done.
Through this site I will be sharing my experiences of living with diabetes, the challenges I have undertaken and those I am preparing to do in order to show others with type 1 diabetes that it is possible to live a normal, active lifestyle. You will also find links to my social media pages and blog. I’d love to hear from you too, so leave me a comment or tweet using the hash tag #ruleT1D
Six Until Me
I’m Kerri Morrone Sparling and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in September of 1986. For much of my life, I was the only diabetic I knew. Thankfully, that’s not the case anymore.
I started Six Until Me in May of 2005 because I was tired of Googling “diabetes” and coming up with little more than a list of complications and frightening stories. Where were all the people who were living with this disease, like I have been since I was a little girl? Was I the only person with diabetes out there who felt alone?
Then I learned about blogs, and the power of sharing our stories online. Back when I first started writing online about diabetes, I was one of four or five diabetes bloggers. Now I am a proud member of a vast diabetes community who prove every day that I’m not alone with this disease.
Sugar Linings – Sierra Sandison – Miss Idaho
While Sierra was growing up, she struggled with her self-esteem and trying to fit in, as well as with finding her identity. After being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 18, she hated her disease—not only because it was affecting her health, but also because of how it made her feel more different than she already was. She refused to wear an insulin pump until she heard about Nicole Johnson, Miss America 1999. Nicole, who also lives with T1D, quickly became Sierra’s hero. Nicole’s example soon helped her develop an empowering confidence, which transformed her life. Sierra made it her goal to some day wear an insulin pump while competing on the Miss America stage in order to do for others what Nicole Johnson had done for her. Less than three years later, she achieved her dream, along with launching the viral #showmeyourpump campaign which encouraged diabetics worldwide to proudly show their insulin pumps on social media. Since then, Sierra has appeared on the Dr. Oz Show, the cover of Diabetes Forecast magazine, and Good Morning America. She now spends her time speaking at schools, diabetes conferences, and other events across the country. She tells her story, along with the message of overcoming adversity, and loving the things that make you unique, rather than being ashamed of the things that make you different. Now, with the launch of her new book, Sugar Linings: Finding the Bright Side of Type 1 Diabetes, she hopes to send a new message: one of hope and encouragement for diabetics and non-diabetics alike.
