American
Diabetes Association

There are a number of national nonprofit health organizations that focus on diabetes and the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is one of the most respected.  For over 60 years, the ADA has been helping people who suffer from this disease with programs in every state in the U.S.

The mission of the American Diabetes Association is to prevent this disease from occurring and to help to cure diabetes.  In addition, the ADA offers resources for professionals who work with diabetics. 

The ADA provides funds for research and reports issues to the public related to scientific discoveries.  Scientific studies and information are available to medical practitioners as well as to the general population.  For many years, the American Diabetes Association has been an advocate for the rights of diabetics.

Programs from the American Diabetes Association

The ADA has a unique Research Program, with the goal of carrying out projects in areas like immunology and cellular biochemistry, as well as diabetes education.  Last year the it supported over $30 million in research, which is up over 50% from 3 years before.  This research program complements that of the National Institutes of Health and this type of synergy helps scientific investigators get substantially more funds for their research from the U.S. government.

The American Diabetes Association has a Government Relations and Advocacy Program which helps to eliminate discrimination against diabetics, helps to make quality care and programs available, and sees to it that the federal government is playing its part to fund important programs and research.  Essentially the ADA espouses traditional medical approaches to diabetes and funds traditional research. 

How Our Philosophy Differs from that of the ADA

The people at the Diabetes-Guide Web site focus on both traditional and non-traditional ways of treating diabetic symptoms.  We primarily look for alternative medical approaches that are backed by scientific evidence.

The American Diabetes Association tends to focus on the medical model (including the use of many drugs) to the exclusion of natural and non-toxic methods of controlling disease.  In addition, we seek input from visitors to our diabetes and weight loss forums with personal experiences and ideas that have helped to improve symptoms of adult diabetics.  We feel that sharing stories and good information can help all people suffering from this very debilitating disease to improve their situation.

We do have information on this site about the American Diabetes Association Diet.
