Sweet Life created a video of cute puppies and kittens to help people assess their risk for Type 2 Diabetes and it only takes a minute.
South Africa (22 October 2020) – November marks the start of National Diabetes Month in South Africa, with World Diabetes Day taking place on the 14th of November.
Diabetes has been in the headlines more in 2020 than previous years due to its infamous claim of being the leading co-morbidity for Coronavirus deaths all around the world. With this in mind, Bridget McNulty, co-founder of Sweet Life Diabetes Community, a Type 1 diabetic herself and the voice of diabetes in SA, together with her team have put together a short 1-minute video test to help people find out if they are at high risk for Type 2 Diabetes, which if caught early enough can be reversed.
Did you know that there are currently 4.5million Type 2 Diabetics in South Africa, with at least 2 million people not knowing they have the disease? This short, very sweet video “test” will help you to determine in less than 1 minute if you are at risk and what you can do about it.
If at the end of the video you’re holding up more than 5 fingers, you could have Type 2 diabetes. But don’t worry… It can be managed and even reversed. You’re not alone in this. Give your doctor a call and go get your blood tested.
You will be able to make all the right choices as soon as you get those results back. It is time to take back our lives!
