The month of November is Diabetes Awareness month. Type 2 diabetes is preventable, and yet the rates of diagnosis are on the rise. Diet, exercise and understanding the details of the disease are keys to staying healthy.
The Center for Disease Control, the American Diabetes Association and World Diabetes Federation are all fantastic resources for Diabetes education, support and activism to stop preventable type 2 diabetes. In just a few moments, review of these sites will increase your awareness of this potentially devastating disease and the simple steps you can take to prevent it.
With day to day events, work commitments and family life filling the lion’s share of our time and attention, it is important to stay aware of social concerns and public health issues that impact our lives whether we know it or not. Promoting a cause can be as basic as wearing a wrist band or carrying a water bottle with a reminder or slogan that creates focus and inspires concern. Share Diabetes awareness this November!
