One fortunate fact is that there are a substantial amount of resources available for those living with diabetes, or who have pre-diabetes. The American Diabetes Association is one of the largest and most well known diabetes organizations in the country and offer a lot of resources through their own organization, as well as links to other groups and events that can be useful. For the page for their Oregon/SW Washington page you can check that out Here. On this page you can look to the options on the left to navigate through such things as the E-newsletter archive, local events, resource list, support groups, and so on. I highly suggest their online forum community which can be found Here. Below is also a list of Portland/Beaverton support groups. Over time I will add more resources on this page, and would be happy to add any resources that are suggested to me.
