My name is Ely Fornoville

Ely FornovilleI have lived with type 1 diabetes since March of 1996.

Living with diabetes didn’t make my life easier but it did open a new world and created new friendships. I always tried to do something back for the diabetes community. Creating this website is a first step towards that goal.

I focus on interviewing people with diabetes and sharing their stories online. I came to the conclusion I wasn’t the only one with certain problems or feelings that go hand in hand with the life of a diabetic. I wanted to share these stories online to help others.

A second part of this website is listing diabetic friendly places. You have a wide variety of restaurants for vegans, vegetarians, … but it’s not always easy as a diabetic to eat out. With your help we can list more diabetic friendly places and help out others.

Focussing on others showed me how people around the world live with diabetes.

I bring an honest and open account of my own life with diabetes but also the lives of others. I work hard to stay involved and give as much as I can back to the community that empowers and inspires me.

I’d love to hear from you, whether near or far. Send me a message anytime, or reach out via Twitter or LinkedIn. If you have any questions you can always check the FAQ.

Thank you! I appreciate you stopping by and sharing your story.
