As someone who has lived with Type 1 Diabetes for almost 18 years, life is a daily struggle to maintain proper blood sugar levels, I feel it is very important to spread awareness of this disease to everyone. But also, we need to spread knowledge to those who don't understand the difference between Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. While they are similar in how they affect someone, they are brought on in completely different ways; Type 1 is more often genetically passed and is not curable/preventable, while Type 2 is what people think of when they hear the word "diabetes" and is curable and nearly 100% preventable. So lets band together and spread awareness and knowledge!
Not all diabetes is related to overconsumption of sugar. In fact the majority of diagnoses of diabetes have nothing to do with sugar intake at all. Juvenile diabetes (Type 1) is an auto-immune disease in which the body attacks the pancreas and it shuts down. Type 2 diabetes is what most people think of when they hear about diabetes, and this can be the result of obesity and/or old age. My brother and I are both Type 1 diabetics, neither the result of too much sugar intake.
Hello everyone!, I know this is for a contest, but it's also something that means alot to me and my friends. Three years ago, my best-friend's sister died from juvenile diabetes. It was a hard time for everyone. Her birthday was 10-17, and each year we have a walk in honor of her, for the family's protection I am going to call her by a fake name, Mary-Anne. Please, try everything you can to support any type of Diabetes Awareness related events. We will always remember you Mary-Anne, we will continually send up our prayers toward you!!!

Thanks, Webberlily, for mentoring this thread about Diabes Awareness. And how nice that a contest is involved to encourage us to spread the word.
I have a good friend with diabetes, so know first hand how it can affect people. We all need to learn more about Diabetes treatment as well as ways we can decrease the risk of getting it.
We have diabetes in my family so we are always aware of the disease. Ours thankfully is only type 2 however we always need to watch our diets and excersize plenty. Best of love to all who have diabetes.
