I list a few excellent starting points for diabetes information on the
web. The maintainers of these pages are putting a lot of effort into
providing good information and links to other sites, and I'm not going
to try to duplicate their work here.

One of the best starting points is Jeff Hitchcock's Children with
Diabetes. Don't judge Children with Diabetes by the title alone; it has
extensive links to diabetes information of all sorts and is by far the
most extensive compilation on diabetes that I've seen on the net.

    http://www.childrenwithdiabetes.com/

Rick Mendosa <mendosa(AT)cruzio.com> maintains a very extensive list of
online resources for diabetes, including many informational and
commercial web sites, and a list of BBSs. It is very likely the most
complete list available, and because it's simply a list, it is much
easier to read than sites with lots of complex internal links. Rick
also keeps one of the most thorough available lists of glycemic index
values for foods.

    http://www.mendosa.com

Another excellent compilation of links to diabetes-related web sites is
the Diabetes Monitor of the Midwest Diabetes Care Center. It's
maintained by William Quick and is exceptionally easy to navigate.

    http://www.diabetesmonitor.com

Yahoo has links on a huge variety of subjects, so if you want more than
just diabetes information you can shorten this URL:

    http://www.yahoo.com/Health/Diseases_and_Conditions/Diabetes

Ian Preece <ianp(AT)darktower.com> is maintaining a web site in
conjunction with the Demon FTP site described above:

    http://www.demon.co.uk/diabetic/

You can reach a WWW-formatted version of this FAQ via the URL

    http://www.faqs.org/faqs/diabetes/

or you can get the plain text by FTP from

    ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/news.answers/diabetes/

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has put its entire set of
Clinical Practice Recommendations online in full. For the most recent
version go to

    http://diabetes.org/cpr/

or start at the ADA home page and follow the link to "For Health Care
Professionals", then "Clinical Practice Recommendations".

Since these are oriented toward health care professionals, they provide
a wealth of detailed recommendations for actual health care practice.

Donald Lehn <dalehn@facstaff.wisc.edu> was probably the first to put a
server with diabetes information on the web. Lehn's Diabetes
Knowledgebase has been offline since August 1995, and is apparently
gone for good.

Many thanks. My husband has Type 2 diabetes and we were a bit concerned about his blood sugar/glucose levels because he was experiencing symptoms of hyperglyceamia. We used a glucometer which displays the reading mg/dl so in my need to know what the difference
between and mg/dl and mmol/l is, i came across your article and was so pleased to aquire a lot more info regarding blood glucose, how to read and convert it.
