What is MyType2?

Do you feel like you're the only one? You're not.

There are more than 160 million people on the planet living with type 2 diabetes.

And every year more teens join this group.

How do I live with it? Will it change my life? Can I handle it?

Watch real teens living with type 2 diabetes; learn tips from experts; and find questions, answers, and advice from a community that can relate.

Living with type 2 isn't easy. But with information, motivation, and support -- you can handle it.

Living with MyType2 launched on World Diabetes Day (November 14, 2009). A pilot project created to support teens, the site is now an online resource for anyone living with diabetes.

As we move to the next phase of the project, we are no longer updating this site. However, you can continue the conversation about living with diabetes by connecting with organizations like American Diabetes Association, dLife, and TuDiabetes.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your stories with MyType2.
