Hi, I wish to propose the creation of sci.med.diabates. The purpose of this
group is to discuss issues pertaining to diabetes, ie: diet, activities,
medicine schedules, blood glucose control, exercise, medical breakthroughs, 
etc... I feel that a group of this nature would be a good place for people 
with IDDM and NIDDM to gain support, and share experiences to help improve
their lives. From the information I received on a mailing list alone, I was
able to gain more understanding and support for my well being. Please take 
this RFD with serious thought. I feel it is a much needed resource.

This is a request for discussion for the creation of the newsgroup
misc.health.diabetes.  This RFD is intended to supercede the RFD for
sci.med.diabetes, and correct for the two major concerns expressed; that
the sci.med.* hierarchy should be classified by medical specialties rather
than diseases and disorders, and that sci.med.* should be reserved for 
technical discussions.

Consistent with the previous RFD, the purpose of misc.health.diabetes
is to discuss issues pertaining to diabetes, ie: diet, activities,
medicine schedules, blood glucose control, exercise, medical breakthroughs,
etc.  This group would address the issues of management of both Type I
(insulin dependent) and Type II (non-insulin dependent) diabetes.  

Discussions of a technical nature would also be welcome, with the 
possibility that they be cross-posted to sci.med.  Should such postings
become of significant volume in the future so as to interfere with the
discussions on sci.med, an RFD will be forthcoming for the technical 
discussion newsgroup sci.med.endocrinology.  Since technical postings already
exists on sci.med, this should not cause any real change in the present
situation, other than to releave sci.med of the non-technical discussions
associated with diabetes.

I am suggesting this change after consulting with the original poster 
of the RFD for sci.med.diabetes.  Barring serious objection, this supercedes
the RFD for sci.med.diabetes.  Given the interest already shown, I am sure
that we will be taking this to a vote after the appropriate discussion 
period.
