This month is diabetes awareness month, so we want to spread awareness of resources and how you can help fund for research in finding a cure.
Type 1 diabetes is a genetic autoimmune disease that people are born with, there is not evidence pointing to it being hereditary. With type 1 diabetes, the pancreas doesn’t make enough insulin for the blood for blood sugar to enter cells in the bloodstream for energy use, which causes high blood sugar levels, which is harmful to the body
Type 2 diabetes is the less common form of diabetes which is mostly developed through overweight, obesity and an inactive lifestyle.
Currently, both type 1 and type 2 diabetes do not have a cure but there is continued research on a cure, therapies, and treatments. By bringing awareness to diabetes, we can help to change the views of governments to get financial support and deliver real change. People can join the JDRF blue army by creating a fundraiser or their own or joining one of the many events around Australia. This money will go to much needed research. Visit the blue army
