I have been informed that November is a important month. Yes it is Fall, and in the United States we celebrate Thanksgiving and rush into the Holiday season. But that isn’t the reason why November important. November happens to have a day called World Diabetes Day on November 14. The focus of this day is to bring more awareness to this medical condition and those who are affected by it. A cool fact about this day is that it is also a very important man’s birthday. Sir Fredrick Banting’s birthday is November 14th and he was the medical scientist who actually helped his fellow scientist and friend, Charles Best, discover insulin.
Insulin is a huge part of someone’s life who has to deal with Type 1 and, if needed, those with Type 2 Diabetes. Without Sir Fredrick Banting and Charles Best discovery of insulin, diabetes would be out of control with more suffering by those with this condition. But even today, there are still a high number of people who do suffer because they cannot always afford the insulin that they need. Medical advances have been made but at what cost? Thousands of people unable to buy the much needed medication, not just for diabetes but for a lot of other illnesses as well.
With everyone’s help, hopefully one day we can get insulin into the hands of all those who need it. World Diabetes Day may be just one day but this entire month we are fighting for awareness for those fighting the high costs of this lifesaving treatment. Diabetes is one disease that we should help fight together. There are those who are fighting to not only prevent diabetes, help others manage diabetes, but also those who are doing what they can to help reverse prediabetes. There are many out there who want to help!
One such company is VIANA Stevia who is constantly working to get the word out there that they have an amazing product that may help those with diabetes find a new solution for their sugar intake. VIANA Stevia is a sugar substitute that I have personally tried and can say it is a lot better to use in your coffee or tea than granulated sugars. I have written a blog about the product and will post a link down below so you may go back to read it. I will also link other blogs talking about the different diabetes as well as a couple of interviews I have done. I have many more interviews talking to those who live with diabetes themselves and those whose loved ones have diabetes and how they help their love one cope with diabetes.
This month I will be posting more of those interviews along with a link of where you can buy the product to try for yourself. This month VIANA Stevia is providing 30% off of their products and I will link that below as well. Take care of yourselves! Help others take care of themselves! Spread awareness this month that no one is alone while going through life, whether struggling or not, while dealing with diabetes and that something should be done so that thousands if not millions of people with diabetes should be able to get their hands on the much needed insulin. And if you wish to try a product that can help you stay away from sugar, then try a little VIANA Stevia today. Diabetes can be stopped and hopefully reversed if caught early on. We need to stand together and fight together for our brothers and sisters who have diabetes.
Keep a look out for more blogs of my blogs on diabetes as there may be some Giveaways coming soon where you can win a sample of the product, VIANA Stevia, to try for yourself.
