There is a probability that the smallest foot sore can lead to a diabetic ulcer or even amputation if managed haphazardly and improperly.

- Another Diabetes Mobile Application Available
There is one new Diabetes mobile application online now. We have not tried out the application yet, but it came from Glooko in collaboration with Novo Nordisk’s Diabetes knowledge and personalized patient support. Essentially, the application wants to help sufferers better manage their disease, and healthcare practitioners gain more insights into their disease.
We believe that if the application is sharing data, and helping with research in the disease, the patients should be rewarded. Contribution to potential cures is over-rated but patients are usually forgotten in this journey.
- Texas Woman Goes On A Cross Country Trip To Advocate For Diabetes
A woman from Texas, Tracy Herbert is going on a cross country trip to raise Diabetes awareness. She was first diagnosed in 1977 with Type 1 Diabetes and told by her doctor that she could only hope to live for 20 years, but she has lived for about 40 with the condition. We join her in her journey of hope as she spread this empowering message on her cross country trip.
Today, we see from Tracy that it is possible to live well despite being inflicted with chronic and incurable diseases such as Diabetes. Her story is one of empowerment and courage, and I would like to encourage sufferers of incurable diseases not to feel depressed over possible afflictions and start empowering and motivating yourself from within to face diseases head on.
