A Day In The Life of Diabetes

 

A Day In The Life of Diabetes

This November Indiana University Health Starke Hospital in cooperation with WKVI radio will present a series on Diabetes. We’ll present the stories of local people with this disease and showcase the extraordinary effort it takes to live a day in their shoes.

With nearly 26 million children and adults afflicted with the disease in the U.S. and an additional 79 million at risk for type 2 diabetes, it has reached epidemic proportions. Recent estimates project that as many as one in three American adults will have diabetes in 2050 unless we take steps to stop this disease.

If you know of someone who is living with diabetes 24/7 please contact Ted Hayes at Indiana University Health Starke Hospital, and you just might be able to tell your story on this site. Call Ted at 772-1198, and be looking for your friends and neighbors right here on the WKVI web. They’ll be telling their stories, beginning Friday, November 1st.
