Why the Drama?

Diabetes is on the increase, and it is killing more people each year. Those it doesn't kill can still fall victim to any of a number of serious complications.

The biggest single problem is not the diabetes itself, it is lack of knowledge.

Sometimes this is simply not being aware that you have diabetes - there are often no obvious symptoms of diabetes - but more often it is a failure to understand the seriousness of the problem.

'Pussyfooting' around the issues doesn't help anyone.

You need to know what diabetes is, you need to know how damaging it can be, and you need to act now, not later when the damage is already done.
