Diabetes Social Media: PWD to Follow on Twitter

First posted: March. 25, 2011

Last updated: Oct. 25, 2013


After my last dLife article, where I interviewed Cherise Shockley about the Twitter and Diabetes, I thought it would help to share a few other accounts of people with diabetes (PWD, in case you wonder what the title stands for) on Twitter.

The list is in alphabetical order. I am sure I missed people, so if you don’t see here an account you think belongs in here, please leave a comment letting me know:
