ISA supports World Diabetes Day 2017


Life. It never stops for us women. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the needs of our kids, partners and daily tasks, we lose sight of what we need. But if you have type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes, it’s key that you also look after yourself. So whatever you do for everyone else today, look to do something for you, and your health.
This ISA animated video in support of World Diabetes Day (WDD) 2017 aims to help raise awareness among women that managing diabetes might sound scary at first but it can be easier than women might believe, if they just place diabetes management and glucose control as one of their priorities in life and further make small steps towards a healthier diet and lifestyle.
