14 World Diabetes Day
According to Diabetes UK one in fifteen people in the UK has a form of diabetes, which means over four million people are affected – with a substantial number not being aware that they have the condition. For some, changes to diet and regular exercise can control it, others need medication and regular injections. Additionally, people with diabetes can be susceptible to other health conditions. We are all likely to know someone with it, some readers may even have it themselves. We are very fortunate to have a healthcare system that can identify it and treat it, and charities funding research and offering support
Lord we give thanks for the work that has been done in identifying diabetes and learning how to treat it. We remember all who are involved in on-going research and support. We remember too those living with diabetes
PS next week we are travelling East to Loch Leven
