November is Diabetes Awareness Month. Did you know that diabetic retinopathy is one of the top four causes of vision loss in North America. The International Diabetes Federation estimates that 1 in 10 North Americans has diabetes and this number is on the rise.
World Diabetes Day is November 14, 2012 - one week from today. This year, the campaign is Diabetes: Protect Our Future. The goal is to educate, engage and empower youth on diabetes and diabetes prevention. Nutrition and lifestyle are intricately linked to the development of Type 2 diabetes and the management of diabetes.
Let us work together to decrease the number of people with vision loss from diabetes.
