From Colombia:

Tengo una nina de 9 anos a quien se le detecto diabetes hace 3 anos. ?Donde puedo encontrar informacion sobre esta enfermedad en idioma espanol?

(I have a 9 year old child who was diagnosed with diabetes 3 years ago. Where can I find information in Spanish about this illness?)


Mi nombre es Tomas Bartol y el jefe del "Web site" Children with Diabetes me dio su mensaje. Yo trabajo en diabetes en Kansas City en los EEUU. Trabajo con muchos Hispanos con diabetes en mi vecindario. Ellos (de Children with Diabetes) me pidieron contestarse. Ellos recomendaron que averigue a la web site:

Yo tengo mucha informacion en Espanol acerca de la diabetes. Hay libros y videos y folletos. Hay muchos negocios de drogas e insulina que hacen folletos acerca de diabetes. Uno se llama Eli Lilly & Co. y fabrica insulina. Ellos tienen buenos folletos y libros en Espanol acerca de diabetes, insulina, dieta, ejercisio, pruebas del azucar, etc. Tambien, el negocio Novo Nordisk (tambien hacen insulina) tienen un equipo de videos acerca de la diabetes en Espanol. Son gratis. No se si hay representantes de estos negocios en Columbia donde vive ud? Los medicos deben conocerlos. Yo tengo mucho contacto con los representantes de estos negocios en la clinica donde trabajo.

I work with many Hispanics with diabetes in my neighborhood. They (Children with Diabetes) asked me to answer your question. They recommend that you check out the web site:

I have a lot of information in Spanish about diabetes. There are books and videos and brochures. There are many drug companies and insulin companies that make these brochures about diabetes, insulin, diet, exercise, blood sugar testing, etc. Also the company Novo Nordisk (they make insulin) has a group of videos about diabetes in Spanish. They are free. I don't know if there are representatives from these companies in Columbia where you live. The doctors there ought to know them. I have frequent contact with the representatives from these companies in the clnic where I work.)
