Diabetes Awareness

Diabetes Awareness
There are about 25.8 million Americans living with some form of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes, often called children's or juvenile diabetes, occurs when the pancreas does not produce insuline, the hormone that converts sugar, starch and other foods into energy for the body. Type 2 diabetes, often referred to as adult onset diabetes, occurs when the body either does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin available in the body. Type 2 diabetes is on the rise in the United States with the increase of obesity. Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are diabetes mellitus. Gestational diabetes is a form of diabetes mellitus that occurs during pregnancy and may disappear after delivery. A rare form of diabetes is diabetes insipidus. Nephrogenic diabetes insipidus is caused by a defect of the kidneys. Central diabetes insipidus is caused when the pituitary gland does not produce enough anti-diuretic hormone for the body to properly absorb fluid.

Diabetes Awareness is represented by the color red. Choose below from our in stock selection of rubber wristbands, ribbon magnets, lapel pins and more or place a custom order to support Diabetes Awareness for your event or fundraiser.
