Diabetes Alert Day

Today as we all know is March 23rd 2010. But what some may not know is that this number is also shared with national diabetes alert day. On this day I wanted to share some facts so that hopefully you will spread the word!

  • Every 21 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes
  • Of every 10 children, 6 will develop diabetes before the age of 18
  • 7.8% of the population has diabetes just in the United States
  • Diabetes has killed more people than breast cancer and AIDS combined
I hope that those four facts have inspired you to do something about diabetes.
