World Diabetes Day: wearing blue!

On this Thankful Thursday, I'm giving thanks for Sir Frederick Banting.  In case you didn't know, today is his birthday and he's the scientist known as the main discoverer of insulin, a hormone my sister, Buffi, and good friend, Corey, could not live without.  They are two individuals living with Type 1 Diabetes who continue to amaze me with their strength and perseverence.

Today, the anniversary of Dr. Banting's birth, is designated World Diabetes Day.  Take a look at that chart and find something you can do today.  (Thanks to Corey for posting these graphics.)

Learn the signs and sypmptoms, take the quiz, eat right and get your exercise.  Knowledge is power.

I'm wearing blue and sharing information about Diabetes on my blog and FB today.  What are you going to do?
