I have written recently about some of the best blogs/on-line resources for Type 1 Diabetics in my Navigating the D O C post. I categorized the listings to make it easier to find blogs specific to where you are on the Type 1 Journey. But I did forget to mention that JDRF, American Diabetes Association, Tudiabetes, Juvenile Diabetes Cure Alliance, and Children With Diabetes also have valuable information. And another great site is Integrated Diabetes–Gary Scheiner is the author of Think Like A Pancreas and is part of Integrated Diabetes. His pump/cgm comparisons are very helpful and the site also addresses many other needs.
I haven’t connected those of you looking for resources for food allergies. So now is the time! First, you need to check out FARE – the Food Allergy Research and Education foundation (formerly known as the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network. The next stop should be Kids with Food Allergies (and check them out on Facebook). These two sites will direct you to more resources that specifically address your food allergy.
My son’s allergy is to milk (specifically the proteins that are present in milk in all forms—cheese, butter, etc.). A favorite blog of mine is Milk Allergy Mom–and I follow her on Facebook as well.
A new resource for me is Allergic Girl–great advice for dining out etc. She is another source I follow on Facebook.
One last resource, just for fun, is Chocolate Covered Katie–a healthy dessert blog. She has vegan (dairy-free), gluten-free, nut-free, sugar-free options. So indulge!
