National Diabetes Awareness Month: Day 1

Today begins National Diabetes Awareness Month!  To begin, let’s focus on “SAE it loud!” day.  SAE stands for, “Support, Advocate, and Educate”.

In my opinion, there has been no other time in the history of diabetes where support, advocacy, and education are so very important.  Not only to those of us who have diabetes, but to those who do not.

First, for those of us who do not have diabetes…if you haven’t seen a doctor for a full checkup, do so NOW.  Don’t wait until you get really sick or have some unexplained health issue.  Go see your doctor for a full physical now.

Second, if you do have diabetes and you haven’t seen an endocrinologist for a long time, then please make an appointment.  Life is too short to take chances with your health.

Here are a few helpful websites:

AACE - American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists

ADA – American Diabetes Association

JDRF – Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Don’t delay; act now.

Happy SAE it Loud day!!!
