American Diabetes Awareness Day

Today is American Diabetes Awareness Day.

My oldest daughter has had Type I diabetes (Insulin dependent) since first grade. When she was younger we were very active with the local chapters of the JDF and the ADA.

You will hear PSA's and many newspapers will run articles like this one. You, like most people who suffer from this malady may no longer be juvenile, but are susseptible to the more common Type II diabetes.

Just in case, here are the classic warning symptoms:

Very thirsty
Frequent urination
Losing weight without trying

More information in the various links. Here is another link I stumbled upon, yet another reason not to be tea-total. (As if you REALLY needed one... ;->)
