Awareness & advocacy

It’s National Diabetes Awareness Month!

My plan is to post T1D awareness facts and information over on our Luke’s Lifesavers Facebook page… come over and like us!

In the meantime, here’s an interesting graphic I found from The Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles.

Eighty people a day!? Holy cow! My question is if Type 1 Diabetes is becoming more common or if people are just aware of the symptoms of Type 1 so there are fewer misdiagnoses. I know in my little community, I know so many more T1s now than I did ten years ago (which was zero!).

See you over at Luke’s Lifesavers!
