Donation to Diabetes Research for American Diabetes Month

That’s right, we’d like to help spread diabetes awareness and one of the ways we’re doing that is contributing to the research fund. During the month of November, the Diabetic Shoes HuB is going to donate $10 for every order over $99 placed on the Diabetic Shoes HuB website. We’re going to be giving money to the American Diabetes Association to learn more about the disease to prevent further spread in the future. So throughout the month of November, use the Diabetic Shoes HuB as your one stop-shop for your orthopedic footwear needs and join the fight to Stop Diabetes.

Join the Fight to Stop Diabetes

Join Netflix and help Stop Diabetes

I know it sounds odd at first, but it is the newest partnership with the American Diabetes Association and there really cannot be enough exposure for the cause. Right now, if you join Netflix through the link below, $20 will be donated to diabetes awareness and ultimately joining the cause to stop the disease.

You can read more about it on the American Diabetes Association website. So if you were ever in debate about Netflix, now is the perfect time to give it a try.

November is American Diabetes Month

November is just around the corner, and every November is American Diabetes Month. Last year, we worked together to help increase diabetes awareness with the American Diabetes Association but this year, they’re looking to take the next step in a national movement and Stop Diabetes altogether by helping to get the word out and fight the disease. Here are some interesting statistics that really get you thinking:

* 24 million children and adults in the United States live with diabetes
* 57 million Americans are at risk for type 2 diabetes
* 1 out of every 3 children born today will face a future with diabetes if current trends continue

The numbers above were pulled from the diabetes.org website. If those trends aren’t alarming, then I don’t know what is. These are some inspiring numbers so tell your friends, your families, and join in to help Stop Diabetes.

November is Just Around the Corner

Can you believe we’re already halfway through October? This month (not to mention this year) have flown by so fast. It’s an exciting time with the Holidays and family fun on the horizon. But another thing to look forward to is American Diabetes Month. As I’ve mentioned before, American Diabetes Month is a month for us to get the word out and educate others about the disease. It also helps you to understand diabetes a little bit more which can make things more manageable. This article on the Preferred Care website helps to give some great information on diabetes. Preferred Care encourages people to work with their local doctors minimize the risks involved. The page also outlines the top ten myths about diabetes from the American Diabetes Association.

Diabetes Resources

There are many great resources for diabetic information that can be found on the web. You can even read up on some blogs of some people living with diabetes. I find the blogs particularly useful because you can read all about the experiences of those diagnosed with diabetes. One of the best resources I have seen is the American Diabetes Association website. There is one page in particular that is especially useful is the page all about diabetes. The page talks about the different types of diabetes and all of the resources available on the site such as diabetic symptoms, diabetic myths, and much more. If you or someone you know has diabetes, this page is a must.

Recently Diagnosed?

If you or someone you love was recently diagnosed with diabetes it can seem at first to be a challenging time, but it actually doesn’t have to be difficult. It can seem like horrible news and coping with the condition is almost out of the question. Luckily, there is hope. A lot of living with diabetes has to do with your mindset and attitude. Many diabetics could have just quit and thought that there was no reason left to live. On the other side, there are those people with diabetes who refuse to simply stop living life and enjoying all that it has to offer. I know that diabetes can seem difficult to overcome, but only if you think that way. Much of life’s success and enjoyment comes with one’s attitude on life. And the great part is that you don’t have to do it alone. Aside from friends, families and loved ones, the America Diabetes Associated has a section on their website devoted to those who have been recently diagnosed with diabetes. The page emphasizes the fact that you’re not alone in the battle. There are sections for children, adults with type 1, and adults with type 2. Just remember, you’re not alone and you always have more to live for.
