November is Diabetes Action Month.
Through a month of action, Diabetes NZ will raise awareness and encourage action to challenge Kiwis to ‘Act Now To Live Well’.
This year Diabetes NZ is busting the myths about diabetes by looking at how common misconceptions and judgement can affect people living with diabetes.
They encourage all New Zealanders to learn more about diabetes in order to understand how to support those living with diabetes. They are also challenging Kiwis to take action to live well through healthy eating, regular physical activity and establishing a support network to create better habits together which will help reduce the risk of or manage the symptoms of diabetes.
