This Sunday, November 14, is world diabetes day and we would like to give visibility to this disease, especially type 1 diabetes with more than 9,000,000 cases worldwide, in Spain 1,100 people are diagnosed each year and there are more than 30,000 minors who suffer from it. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that cannot be prevented and its onset at any age has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle.
On the 14th at night from 8:00 p.m., the Las Arenas Shopping Center in Barcelona will be illuminated in Blue, a color that symbolizes diabetes, in addition from November 15 to 20 in the afternoons, there will be an information stand in the lobby of the Shopping Center.
Our furniture rental company has a special sensitivity to type 1 diabetes, which is why we are a friendly company and we collaborate in different events organized in Barcelona by the DiabetesCero foundation.
DiabetesCero is made up of parents of children with type 1 diabetes, adults who suffer from the disease, and scientists who are struggling to find a cure that shouldn't be far. The foundation seeks funding for research projects, they raise awareness, sensitize and inform and above all help newcomers and relatives at the time of diagnosis to understand the disease and all the backpack that being type 1 diabetic entails.
From Barcelona Integral we send all our support to all those who live with insulin as a travel companion and to the researchers who fight every day to find the cure.
If, like us, you want to help in research against type 1 diabetes, do not hesitate to visit the Diabetescero website.
