We have launched an international website, DiabetesCommunity.com, which will be the anchor of our international activity outside of the UK primarily focusing on the USA, Canada, Australia and Germany.
The biggest achievement we have made and what we’re really proud of, is the fact Diabetes.co.uk is improving the health of people who have diabetes, and as a consequence we’re saving health services money.
We’re passionate about engagement. With over 15 million people visiting us each year, we now look at goal conversions. That means how many people engage with our posts, join the Diabetes.co.uk community, and download the Diabetes.co.uk forum apps
A growing proportion of our traffic is from outside the UK. With thousands of Diabetes.co.uk forum members praising the benefit of the forum and site on their health/diabetes, we have always had the ambition of growing into an international business, especially as there is very little that exists elsewhere that is extensive as Diabetes.co.uk.
We began with Type2Testing.com – a new worldwide service for people with type 2 non-insulin dependent diabetes, to help people take control of their blood glucose and reduce their HbA1c. Typically, people with type 2 diabetes do not have access to a blood glucose meter and test strips. However, on the same note, without a blood glucose meter and test strips, it is difficult to understand the effect food, exercise, medication and illness can have on your blood glucose levels.
