Know Diabetes

Know diabetes awareness movement


Join the Know Diabetes movement and help spread diabetes awareness throughout South Africa.

November is National Diabetes Month, but did you know that half of all people with diabetes in South Africa are undiagnosed? These are the latest stats from the International Diabetes Federation and they are scary. The way I see it, we have two options: we can wait around for something to be done about it, or we can do something.

Guess which one I think we should do?

I’m inviting you to be part of the Know Diabetes movement. Joining the Know Diabetes movement is free and easy – all you have to do is like the Diabetic South Africans Facebook page and sign up with your email above.

We have a simple goal for November: sharing the 5 symptoms of diabetes throughout South Africa. You can share these images on Facebook, Twitter or WhatsApp, or download these posters to print out for your work, school, clinic or library. Let’s make sure everyone in South Africa knows the symptoms of diabetes!

Will you join me? I need your help.
