November is the month of diabetes awareness, also known as Diabetes Awareness Month.
While Diabetes Awareness Month is more prevalent in America, every year, the diabetes community comes together to raise awareness for diabetes. November has been the designated month for diabetes awareness since 1975.
Diabetes is a condition that falls into two main types, but both cause higher than normal blood glucose levels, which, if left untreated, can cause serious problems.
You may be familiar with the blue circle, an IDF symbol for diabetes, which is also used for World Diabetes Day.
World Diabetes Day is the milestone of Diabetes Awareness Month, which is on November 14.
