Diabetes Awareness Month: Doing Our Part


| 11/6/2018 7:45:00 AM


November marks Diabetes Awareness Month, a time to reflect on a variation of pancreatic disorders that greatly affect our world. Around 422 million adults are living with some form of diabetes, and the number is growing. Every year, 40,000 children and adults are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes alone. With occurrences becoming more prevalent, we must all increase our awareness of the disease.

Know the Facts

Understanding diabetes, and debunking myths, are among the most important things we can do this month.

Type 1 and 2 Diabetes

There are different types of diabetes—type 1 and 2 are so different in fact, that many argue the conditions should have completely different names. Both are to be taken seriously, but the intertwining of references can pose dangerous situations for those who deal with diabetes.



Type 2 diabetes can occur as a result of many things, not just diet or lifestyle. Ultimately, the body doesn’t make as much life essential insulin as it needs to convert sugar into energy, or the body doesn’t respond to the insulin it does make, resulting in high blood sugar levels.
