Diabetes can be a scary-sounding disease, full of questions and myths. I was contacted by Dr. Mario Trucillo from The American Recall Center to help raise awareness about diabetes in the last few days of National Diabetes Month.

Almost 19 million people in the USA have a diabetes diagnosis, and another 7 million people have it and don’t know (Source).

Some of those 19 million people who know they have diabetes shared “one thing they would like the world to know about this condition.” The responses were used to make this infographic.
