Diabetes is a metabolic disease in which the person has a high level of sugar in the blood, either because the body does not produce enough insulin or because the cells do not respond to the insulin produced. According to 2011 statistics, 18.8 million people were diagnosed with some form of diabetes in the United States, while 7 million lived with the disease without being diagnosed or receiving treatment.
With 8.3 percent of the American population living with some form of diabetes, it is essential that we learn about its causes, symptoms, and effects. It is to this end that November has been declared as National Diabetes Month and those living with the disease. Diabetic Living Online has made available to the public, through its website, important tips, recipes and sources for people to learn about the disease and learn to lead a healthy life after being diagnosed.
With the slogan "Diabetes does not stop you!", This organization focuses not only on raising awareness but on showing those who suffer from the disease that they can have a normal and happy life. The portal is a guide for those patients who have been recently diagnosed, teaching them not how to survive but how to continue living.
