Living well and beautifully and justly are all one thing. -- Socrates November is American Diabetes Month and a time not only to recognize the difficulties and discrimination associated with the disease but to celebrate the 21 million children and adults who live complete and happy lives despite their challenges. About National Diabetes Month Diabetes is a serious disease that affects the body's ability to produce or respond properly to insulin, a hormone that allows blood sugar in the body to be used for energy. Nearly 21 million children and adults, nationwide, have diabetes. It is the fifth deadliest disease in the U.S. and it has no cure. Every November, the American Diabetes Association encourages the public to learn more about diabetes and the risks associated with the disease.
