Forum Expectations

Not Medical Advice

  • If you are in need of medical attention, please call 911 immediately or go directly to the Emergency Department of your local hospital. If you are in need of non-urgent medical advice, please contact your healthcare team immediately.
  • Diabetes is a serious disease that requires attentive care. The information in this web site is for general information only. Information, opinions, and recommendations presented in these pages are not intended to replace the care of your own Diabetes Team. You should never disregard medical advice or delay seeking it because of something you have read on this site. It should not be considered complete. It should neither be construed as medical advice or diagnosis, nor as advice as to treatment of any specific medical condition.
  • Before you make any changes in the management of your diabetes or your child's diabetes, you should consult your Diabetes Team or other qualified medical professionals.
  • Nothing on the forum constitutes medical advice, even if you know the information to come from a health care professional. Forum users, while such users are participating in, accessing or otherwise using this site, are not engaged in rendering legal, medical, counseling, or other professional services or advice.
  • Products are reviewed for the sole purpose of sharing opinions of their acceptance and usability by patients and their care givers. Reviews are based on personal use experience and will include the type of person doing the review; i.e., child or adult and type of diabetes. Not all products are suitable for all persons.


  • Every member has a right to privacy and anonymity in the forum.
  • Do not publically identify or "out" other users -- a user who has identified or semi-identified themselves in one thread may not wish to be identified in other threads.
    • Example: A user leading an initiative in Little Bay, Newfoundland (population 105) may be "known" to others forum members living in the area. They may not want to be "known" across Canada, however.

This agreement is subject to change. Changes will be communicated via the forum.
