Diabetes Awareness Month 2018

Photography by Talya Shai


This is the month where many of us in the Type 1 community inundate our Facebook friends, our Instagram and Twitter followers, and our blog readers with information about Type 1 Diabetes.

And some people might get annoyed with us. But you know what? That’s too bad, because the world is so full of false information about Type 1 that every single person who is telling the world the truth makes a difference. Or at least that’s what I believe.

Diabetes isn’t a “sexy” disease, as people would say. Nope. It’s stigmatized with much of the world thinking we gave it to ourselves by eating too much sugar, that it’s a “fat person” disease, and many more misconceptions that are incredibly damaging to Type 1s.

Explaining to the world that this disease can hit anyone, at every time, is important. People need to know that it can happen to your parents, your friends, your siblings, or yourself. And though it’s commonly diagnosed in children, it’s diagnosed in adults too! It happens to athletes, lawyers, tiny children, and your everyday person. It doesn’t matter your size, your shape, your weight, your age... it can come and hit anyone like a freight train. Because it’s an autoimmune disease and unfortunately there’s nothing to do to stop it and there’s no cure. This is why we fight so hard and make so much noise.

So, to my fellow T1Ds, here’s to making a ton of noise this month! May the awareness begin!

  9. Twelve months ago I constantly had to go to the bathroom. I thought it was because I gave up soft drinks and was only drinking water. One day I had a stomachache. I was in bed for 4 days. The doctor's appointment was for a Wednesday. I got sick and went to emergency room on a Monday. I was told my blood sugar level was 810 and I have diabetes. I was taking taking metformin 1000 mg twice daily. It Wasn't really helping Last year, a family friend told me about Organic Herbal clinic and their successful Diabetes TREATMENT, I visited their website ww w . organicherbalclinic. co m and ordered their Diabetes Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed my Diabetes, most of the symptoms stopped, I'm able to eat well, sleep well and exercise regularly., I'm pretty active now and my attitude is extremely positive.
