Diabetes: Protect our Future,
by International Diabetes Foundation
November 14 is World Diabetes Day.
The overall theme for the years 2009-2013 is "Diabetes Education and Prevention" with this year's slogan being "Diabetes: Protect our Future."
I see no point in educating directly, as I know of two outstanding sources.
- Jennifer's advice to the newly diagnosed
- If you only read one page about blood glucose control, this should be it, even if you are not yet diabetic. Jennifer discusses how to use a blood glucose meter to learn about managing your bG.
- Blood Sugar 101
- If you want to learn about diabetes and controlling blood glucose, but don't want to get a biochemistry degree, Jenny Ruhl's site is for you as she translates what is known for laymen very comprehensively.
