November is National diabetes awareness month. Diabetes is a fairly common but also death warranting disease. I myself live with diabetes and battle with it daily. While it affects masses of individuals it is one that can be controlled by living conditions, diet and exercise. The American Diabetic Foundation estimates that 30 million adults and children have been diagnosed with diabetes and even more have pre-diabetic symptoms for type two diabetes.
The American diabetes Association dreams of a life free of diabetes and all of its burdens. It all starts with raising awareness. There are lots of ways you help draw awareness some of them include
wear blue on Fridays in support of diabetes awareness
participate in fundraiser walk
write hope on your hand and share on social network statuses
