This Blue November, not only are we marking World Diabetes Day on 14 November, it’s also 100 years since the discovery of insulin. Millions of lives have been saved and improved because of this discovery, however diabetes is still a serious and life-long condition. If people with diabetes are not sufficiently supported, they are at a higher risk of developing serious life-threatening complications.

Let’s take this opportunity to raise awareness of the seriousness of diabetes. We should not let diabetes, and the millions with it around the world, go on unnoticed.  Please join YDA this Blue November to make a noise about diabetes and make sure diabetes receives the attention it requires!
