Introduction to David

Hello, everybody.

I just registered for these forums because they look like a good place to discuss health-related topics. Why these forums in particular? I had joined the HSI Healthier Talk forums some time ago but was not a very active participant. Now they seem to be gone, and a Google search brought me to this thread:

(What did happen to those forums? I don’t recall receiving a notification that they were shutting down.)

At the time, I just had a general interest in healthy living, vitamins, mineral supplements, natural medicine, etc. I didn’t spend a lot of time in the forums. However, recently my six year-old daughter was diagnosed with Type One diabetes. Now I am trying to absorb as much information about Diabetes as possible. I will probably post many diabetes-related questions in these forums in the near future. Hopefully, I don’t annoy people with these questions (unless perhaps somebody can recommend a forum specifically about diabetes?).

Looking forward to interacting with people in these forums.

Hi David. There are several members of this forum that were members of the HSI forum. I'm not sure what happened. No one was notified of its closure. In the end, there was a lot of bickering and personality problems with no moderation of such. It is too bad. There is a lot of lost information there.

But welcome to this forum. I hope it will help you on your health quest. I also hope you will share what you find on your path.
