Fab Websites

There are THOUSANDS of diabetes websites out there. But not all of them are good!!!

But how do you know if a website is giving you reliable information or is even accurate?

What to look for in a website? Here are some tips;

~Don’t rely on just one site for information.

~Find out who owns or has written the information.

~Sites produced by institutions may be more reliable than those produced by individuals.

~Sites that use an editorial review board may be more reliable.

~Information should be balanced – have the pros and cons been considered?

~If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

~Advertising should be clearly identified and commercial sponsorship disclosed up-front.

~Good site presentation doesn’t guarantee quality, but nor does it detract from it.

~The information should be up to date.

~Be very wary of sites that offer online consultation and prescriptions.

 

To save you some time, I have put together some of the websites that I find extremely reliable and useful for information. This is just a quick list from the top of my head.
