Type 2 Diabetes Awareness Month 2021
November is Diabetes Awareness Month! We know living with diabetes encompasses more than "just diet and exercise." Therefore, throughout the month, we will be highlighting how diabetes can affect our emotions and relationships.
To kick it off, we asked our Type2Diabetes.com advocates, "What does diabetes awareness month mean to you?" Here is what they had to say:
It is important to raise awareness about life with type 2 diabetes and let others know that they are not alone in their journey. So how can you participate this November?
