Dynamic Diabetes Duos Save Appendages

Special Teams Fight Diabetic Amputations

"...many of the 80,000-plus amputations of toes, feet and lower legs that Americans diabetics undergo each year are preventable, say specialists who brought more than 900 health providers to a meeting last week to figure out how to do just that.

One recommendation: For hospitals to create diabetes limb-salvage teams."

Randy Jackson and the American Heart Association Promote Awareness about the Connection Between Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease

"Through the campaign, Jackson shares more of his story about living with type 2 diabetes and provides information about how to successfully manage it. The campaign calls upon those who either have, or know someone who has, type 2 diabetes to share their tips and inspirational stories on the campaign's Web site,"

It seems like a lot of celebrities are finally going public with their diabetes. It's definitely encouraging to see that people are using their blessings to speak up and help others not feel so alone.
