With one in ten Americans living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and more than 88 million adults living with prediabetes, many more people have a connection to diabetes than it may seem. And whether you are living with diabetes yourself or care about someone who is, or if you simply want to know more about diabetes prevention, there’s no shortage of information to learn or actions to take. Thankfully, there are a variety of resources that can help, from online support groups and events to diabetes education programs and advocacy materials. Explore our diabetes resource round-up below to get started.
Leading diabetes organizations
The American Diabetes Association
With a mission of improving the lives of everyone affected by diabetes, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is a comprehensive hub for diabetes research, education, advocacy, and support. The national organization also has local offices throughout the U.S. where you can learn about community resources and events.
Beyond Type 1 and Beyond Type 2
Beyond Type 1 and Beyond Type 2 are global online communities for individuals living with diabetes, powered by a nonprofit organization (also named Beyond Type 1) that funds a variety of diabetes research and projects.
Focusing on type 1 diabetes, JDRF is a leader in research and advocacy and a destination for type 1 diabetes support and community. Like the ADA, JDRF has many chapters across the U.S. that offer opportunities to connect locally with those affected by type 1 diabetes.
Taking Control of Your Diabetes
Founded by an endocrinologist living with type 1 diabetes himself, Taking Control of Your Diabetes is a resource hub for individuals and families affected by diabetes as well as medical professionals seeking to stay informed of the latest developments in diabetes care.
