The primary world diabetes awareness and education campaign is being held today, Nov. 14- each year. This was first created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Foundation and the World Health Organization to have the people become aware of its prevention as well as its costliness, and to celebrate the fact that insulin was brought as a treatment against it, brought in the year 1992.

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when the blood glucose (or blood sugar) is too high. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps the glucose from food to get into the cells and be used for energy. When the cells don’t receive enough glucose, it may result in fatigue and weakness. 

“One of the struggles is constantly having to be checking sugar levels, which means constant pinching fingers. And depending on the sugar levels is how urgent the situation is and we have to watch what we eat- what we have at home” says SAS junior, Leslie Rodriguez.

Ways of preventing diabetes, accoring to Heathline.com, include, cutting sugar and refined carbs from your diet, working out regularly, drinking water as a primary beverage, losing weight if overweight or obese, quiting smoking (if smoke), follow a very low carb diet, watch portion sizes, and avoiding sedentary beverages. 

While having diabetes is a major health issue, it is clear that it is very time-consuming and costly endeavor, as the economic cost of diabetes globally is around $245 billion (US).
