Here we are, another year at the day known as the “World Diabetes Day”. And here I am, with a more critical attitude towards it.
Well, don’t get me wrong. I agree that there should be prevention campaigns advising people to live healthier ways of life in order to avoid future problems like diabetes. But I think that everything organized on this day has been thought, developed and paid unilaterally. I mean, that it is only shown one point of view, one perspective on how to treat diabetes.

I’ve read on the Internet that the World Diabetes Day is the “most important overall information campaign in the world about diabetes.” Well, how can they call something “overall” if it only informs about one point of view (allopathic)?

And I continue with what I found on the net: “Its purpose [of this Day] is to make known the causes, the treatment and the associated complications of this illness”. Here I am confronted with another problem: “the treatment”. Which treatment are they talking about? Because I know different treatments that have proved their effectiveness to improve and even heal diabetes.
Of course, they are talking about the only treatment that they are willing to accept and, oddly, one that can’t heal diabetes. They know very well how to treat us. They treat our illness all our life until the day we die due to some complication derived from diabetes. But they don’t know how to cure diabetes.

And I keep reading: “this day is an important reminder that the impact of this serious illness is still increasing.” My question is why are there more and more diabetics, to the point that diabetes is being considered an epidemic, after so many years of treating and researching diabetes, so many campaigns like this one, so many medicines and drugs?
We will have to consider if the information that we get this day and everyday at our medical centers is the most appropriate. Maybe it is the most appropriate for the ones that are getting millions of dollars at our expense, but I don’t think that it is appropriate for us.

I hope that soon comes the day, when on the World Diabetes Day, communities, health centers and town halls invite people who have healed their diabetes through any kind of treatment (no matter which name) to motivate the ones who still have the illness. And this is something that could have been done years ago.
