Diabetes Awareness Month “Annually, November 14 is World Diabetes Day. 11/14 is the birthday of Dr. Banting, who with Best, discovered insulin in 1921.” Every day during Diabetes Awareness Month, I will share a fact, tip, or thought on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram. Please remember that I never give medical advice. Ask your endocrinologist or pediatrician for advice about your own child. Make your own informed decisions for your own child.
