What is diaTribe?

diaTribe, our patient-focused online publication, is part of The diaTribe Foundation’s mission to improve the lives of people with diabetes.

diaTribe seeks to empower our readers with useful, actionable information that gives them hope for a better future, and helps them live happier and healthier lives. Our tag line is “Making Sense of Diabetes.”

Our team has access to the world’s leading diabetes and obesity researchers and clinicians. We attend all the relevant conferences, and we've developed unmatched expertise in this area. Most important, we have personal connections to diabetes – many of us have it ourselves, and this perspective influences everything we do and write.

diaTribe covers a wide variety of topics related to diabetes. From type 1 to type 2, from drugs to devices, from research opportunities to regulatory decisions, the common thread through our articles is that they aim to provide value to our readers. That might come from learning about a new product or study, or from feeling more confident in discussions with their healthcare team, or simply gaining hope knowing that progress is being made every day.  We also hope to raise awareness of unmet needs in diabetes and, through education, decrease the stigma associated with this disease.  

In writing diaTribe, we are guided by our core principles:

  • We aim to talk to our readers as regular people, not as “patients.”
  • Although we cover scientific developments, we try to make our coverage accessible to anyone regardless of their medical or scientific background.
  • We hope to make our articles as actionable as possible, providing tools and resources to make concrete changes in people’s lives.
  • We want to convey that progress is constant and that diabetes care will keep getting better.
  • We pride ourselves on scientific accuracy and rely heavily on our expert Advisory Board to ensure we are providing the best information possible.

We are committed to editorial independence: we don’t accept advertisements on our site, and we always say what we honestly think.

Most of the burden of diabetes rests with the individual, not the doctor. Knowledge is power, and we hope that passing on all the information possible in a clear manner will help readers improve their diabetes management, their quality of life, and ultimately their long-term outcomes.
