Despite all the publicity about Diabetes, the condition is still leading to over 100 amputations per week due to poor control of the condition. 

It is clear that there needs to be better education about the condition, and more support for those suffering with both Type I and Type II diabetes, so that people can learn to live with the condition without having to experience the terrifying side effects that can occur, like amputation.

Do you know the signs of Diabetes? The main symptoms include feeling very thirsty, urinating more than usual, feeling very tired and weight loss amongst others. 

It is so important for the condition to be diagnosed as early as possible, because it will only get worse if it is left untreated.
