This newsletter keeps you up-to-date with new articles, Web pages, and books that I have written about diabetes.

  • I list and link most of these on my at Diabetes Directory and in the site’s menu.

  • From time to time Diabetes Update may also include links to other Web pages of special interest.

    Now we can get a GlycoMark test. It has just become available in this country. Developed by two companies in Japan, it has, however, been used there for more than a decade.

    I wrote about the GlycoMark test for my “Meter News” column in the June issue of Diabetes Health magazine. My column is also online at
