NATIONAL DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH

DIABETESWell, October is nearly gone, and I have been researching some other causes for the month of November.  There are many, but I chose the one for diabetes because it is a medical condition that runs in my family.  I find it interesting that millions of people who have diabetes do not even know it because of symptoms that are easy to miss, giving it the name The Silent Killer.

The Web site of Healthfinder.gov indicates that 79 million adults in the United States are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.  This is the most common form where the body does not use insulin properly.

We live in a world where millions of people are plagued everyday of their lives with various illnesses and diseases.  I am so grateful that modern medicine has done much to alleviate some of our suffering and look forward to the time God has promised when no inhabitant will say, I am sick.  (Isaiah 33:24)

As always, this is from my heart to yours,

Maxine
