Our forum is moderated on a weekly basis. The moderators and administrators are volunteers. Moderators are Jeff and Brenda. The moderators and forum members are not regarded as health professionals. You can contact the moderators by using our Send a Letter page.


The information provided on this forum is designed to support, not replace, the direct relationship between patients and health professionals.


We remind you that any message can be read, used, reproduced and cited by all. You do not have the option to delete your messages. However, under exceptional circumstances, you can contact the moderators to do so. The references you provide for your posts cannot be deleted. Thus, please take care regarding the information that you post.

New User Accounts

Messages posted by users new to the forums are held for moderation before being available. We do this to reduce the risk of forum spammers reaching our audience.


The moderators and members should conduct themselves at all times with respect and honesty.

By using our forums, you agree to post information that is true and correct to the best of your knowledge and is of your personal experience. If the information you post is not personal experience, we request you to provide sources (references, links, etc.) whenever it is relevant and possible.

You are not allowed to post advertisements, whether in the form of text links or banners, for example.

Messages promoting any product sold via multi-level marketing will be deleted, as will users who continue to post such messages will be permanently banned. (See MLM Watch.)

The moderators reserve the right to delete any messages deemed inappropriate without notifying the author. In cases of abuse, the moderators reserve the right to ban a member of the forum. In both instances, an explanation will be provided if user requests.

Users can modify and remove their posts for 30 minutes after posting. Beyond that, a post is permanent. If you need to have a post removed after that time, please contact the admin via the forum tools and explain the reason for your request.


The Children with Diabetes Forums is open to the public. All posts are thus open to the public. The forums is indexed by major search engines on an almost daily basis. Thus everything you post is public. Please bear that in mind when you post information about yourself or your child.

vBulletin CMS

The vBulletin CMS allows you and your users to create, edit and publish articles directly to your site. It combines a simple to use content manager with a unique organizational system that lets you control the smallest detail of the site from the number of sections, to the overall layout, to the placement of widgets and displays on each page.

Safety Online

Public Access

Although you must join to participate, the Children with Diabetes Forums is still viewable to the public, which means your information is viewable and searchable to the public, too. Please use caution if sharing details about yourself, your family/child. Also be aware that referencing other people's full names and locations in your posts is publically searchable; we suggest using truncated names (Dr. S instead of Dr. Smith) as an alternative.

Do Not Post Personal Contact Information

Especially in connection to details about your children, we recommend that you keep your personal e-mail address and phone number to yourself and do not post in the forums. We encourage you to use the Private Messaging system instead, which never exposes your personal email to anyone.

Member Names And Signatures

Please do not use personal contact information as your member name or in your signature. Also use caution if you decide to include details about your family and/or work, as that information is searchable to the public. The purpose of the forums is support and education, so please limit links; commercial links are prohibited and will be removed.

Personal Safety

Sadly, there are people who present themselves as someone else when using online forums. For your protection, as well as your family's, please use caution when developing online relationships.
