On Your Mark.... Get Set....

Tomorrow is World Diabetes Day and I am preparing my post for that special day. Meanwhile, I received an e-mail with a link to some very useful information. I know that since the first outbreak of Chicken Flu several years ago, we have been bombarded with the word >>Pandemic<<. I looked at that word as something that would be coming in the future. That is not the case. We already have a Pandemic in the form of Diabetes. I do hope that you will click on the link that I have provided for you and read the press release that you will find there. The numbers alone are staggering, such as over 200 children a day develop Type 1 Diabetes. Think about it....... That would be 73,000 children per year.

Now that I have given you something to read and think about, I will get back to my post for tomorrow. Please check back tomorrow for my World Diabetes Day post. Hopefully I will be providing information that you don't have. Just as important is to let others with this dreadful disease know that they are not alone in their struggle with Diabetes.
