The National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse (NDIC) is an information dissemination service of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The NIDDK is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NDIC was established in 1978 to increase knowledge and understanding about diabetes among patients, health care professionals, and the general public. To carry out this mission, NDIC works closely with NIDDK's Diabetes Research and Training Centers; the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP); professional, patient, and voluntary associations; Government agencies; and State health departments to identify and respond to informational needs about diabetes and its management.


The NDIC distributes publications about diabetes, provided free of copyright, in varying reading levels. Publications include easy-to-read booklets, fact sheets, Spanish-language materials, and a quarterly newsletter---Diabetes Dateline. Patients, health care professionals, and the general public can order publications through an online publications catalog. The NDIC also sends publications to health fairs and community events. All publications produced by the NDIC are carefully reviewed by both NIDDK scientists and outside experts.
