This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. OBJECTIVE--To determine the impact of posters advertising symptoms of diabetes on public knowledge of these symptoms. DESIGN--Structured street interviews of members of the general public before, at the end of, and 10 weeks after a campaign advertising the main symptoms of diabetes. SETTING--Basingstoke and Wolverhampton. SUBJECTS--Three samples of 1000 members of the general public were interviewed. Samples were selected randomly but stratified to match the local population's age (20-75), sex, social class, and racial characteristics. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES--Knowledge of symptoms of diabetes; perceived seriousness of diabetes; and induction of anxiety about symptoms in the target population. RESULTS--Advertising significantly raised knowledge (without prompting) of symptoms: thirst, 245 before v 411 at end of campaign (P < 0.0001) v 341 after (P = 0.0012 v before); polyuria, 72 v 101 (P = 0.0211) v 92 (P = 0.5169); lethargy, 180 v 373 (P < 0.0001) v 298 (P < 0.0001); knowledge of weight loss and visual disturbance was unaffected. The number of subjects lacking knowledge of any symptoms was reduced from 550 to 388 (P < 0.0001). The perceived seriousness of diabetes was unaffected (mean 7.6 in each phase on a scale of 1 (not) to 10 (very). Before advertising, 449 (45%) claimed to have one or more symptoms of diabetes, but this number fell at the end of the campaign (403; P = 0.0419) and 10 weeks afterwards (278; P < 0.0001).

Diabetes Awareness Week 2017

Diabetes Awareness Week 2017

Diabetes Week kicks off on 11 June, and this year the theme is: Know Diabetes. Fight Diabetes. While a lot of people have a good understanding of diabetes and how to manage it, many others aren’t getting the right help and support to look after their diabetes. Today, 65 people will die early from the condition and hundreds more will face life-changing complications that could have been avoided or delayed if they’d had the right knowledge and support to manage their diabetes. Some of you have that, and are already doing everything you can to manage your diabetes well. But this isn’t true for everyone and it’s our job to change that. Our vision is a world where diabetes can do no harm. Together, we can make that a reality. We are encouraging the diabetes community to share their experiences and knowledge. We’d love to hear your stories of how you know more about diabetes because this shared knowledge could help someone else with the condition. We know that the right knowledge has the power to transform lives. Knowledge gained from the experience of people living with diabetes, knowledge gained from research discoveries, knowledge from the people working with diabetes every day. This Diabetes Week, we want to hear how you learned more about your condition, to inspire others to do the same, using our hashtag #knowdiabetes Fight Diabetes We are fighting every day for people with diabetes. Together, we all need to fight the challenges that diabetes presents – challenges of funding over research, perceptions around Type 1 and Type 2, of better care, rights for people at work and children at school living with diabetes. Together we can fight diabetes. We can fight against the postcode lottery in care, we can fight for a cure and we can fight on behalf of those who c Continue reading >>

What's Happening For World Diabetes Day And Diabetes Awareness Month 2015

What's Happening For World Diabetes Day And Diabetes Awareness Month 2015

November is upon us -- that time of year when "all eyes are on diabetes," with it being national Diabetes Awareness Month and World Diabetes Day on Nov. 14. That day was chosen in honor of Dr. Frederick Banting, the co-discoverer of insulin back in 1921, who would be 124 years old were he still alive to celebrate this birthday! This month of diabetes awareness has been going on for much longer than many realize. National Diabetes Month was actually established 40 years ago in 1975, though Congress and the U.S. presidents didn't start passing proclamations recognizing November as "diabetes month" until the mid 1980s. The American Diabetes Association trademarked "American Diabetes Month" in 1997. Meanwhile, World Diabetes Day was launched by the International Diabetes Federation in 1991 to call attention to this worldwide epidemic, and it got a big boost when the United Nations issued a resolution on it in 2006. The first-ever WDD was recognized in 2007. All of these November observances exploded about a decade ago with the debut of the Diabetes Online Community (DOC), where people can easily create and promote new campaigns and initiatives. Some of these repeat annually, while others are specific to the particular year they’re launched. Here's a quick look at what’s being organized in November 2015 by some prominent organizations (in alphabetical order). Of course, if you know of any other activities, please let us know in a comment below! American Diabetes Association (ADA) This year is the ADA’s 75th anniversary and it has a “timeless message” for D-Awareness Month: eating well is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and enjoying delicious, healthy food helps with diabetes management. With its Eat Well, America! campaign, the ADA wants to show how easy and jo Continue reading >>

November Is National Diabetes Awareness Month | Ssdi Benefit

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month While Type 2 diabetes is the most common and treatable form of diabetes, its complications often cause many other health risks. Read about Gordan Adamson's experience with diabetic retinopathy. Do you know the leading cause of adult blindness, end-stage kidney disease and amputations of the foot or leg? Here is a hint: it is the same disease that also puts people at increased risk of heart disease and stroke, and is a leading cause of death and disability in the U.S. Almost 24 million Americans have diabetes and nearly 300,000 people diagnosed with endocrine, nutritional and metabolic diseases as their primary diagnoses receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. Those numbers are expected to rise. A University of Michigan Health Systemstudy released this October found thathospitalizations for diabetes in the United States rose 65 percent over a recent 14-year span (1993-2006). Young adults-young women in particular-accounted for much of that surge. "Despite its prevalence, public awareness about diabetes is very low," said Allsup disability claims manager Cindy Ratermann. According to the National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) , nearly six million people who have the disease don't even know it. However, it is a disease Allsup team members know very well. "We work with people with diabetes every day to help them through what can be a very stressful process," Cindy said. "We do all the paperwork, dealing with them over the phone. We keep them out of the Social Security office and in the comfort of their own homes. Diabetes can have very painful side effects-if we can keep them more comfortable we can also help with their stress level." Managing stress can be critically important for people with diabetes Continue reading >>
