Using Social Media to Help Manage Diabetes

If you’re diagnosed with a chronic disease, your doctor can give you the facts, but where can you go for emotional and practical support? On the latest episode of Taking Control of Your Diabetes, Dr. Steven Edelman welcomes Manny Hernendez and David Edelman to discuss their personal experiences and how social networking helped them and others.

Manny, an electrical engineer, started TuDiabetes, a social network that offers support, education, and sharing the steps taken every day to stay healthy while living with this very serious condition.
