What do you have that can help Stop Diabetes?
Your voice.
Your presence.
Your connection to those people you love.

Here's how you can use what you already have, and make your actions count in the movement to stop diabetes:

I have a quart of bitter melon extract and a .357 Magnum.

LOL!

OK, in all seriousness, I don't have much more than a desire to change my life and confront diabetes on my own physiological front. I just try to live by example and dispel myths/misinformation wherever I can. It's not much, but as someone I admire once sang "You may be one drop in the ocean, but each drop swells the tide".

Every little bit helps even if it means living by example and educating yourself !

A very true statement !
Most people don't know that pre-diabetes and diabetes are not the same thing or even related and that you can be cured of pre-diabetes through wweight control and diet to control your glucose level daily.

Awareness, acceptance and education of such are keys to helping combat individual ignorance of diabetes, but to mention the " I " word insults many, although they don't know why.
