World Diabetes Day

The #TimeSavingGurus are here with episode 3 of Technology Unplugged, in this episode our co-hosts James Baker and Nathan Wright talk about ‘World Diabetes Day’ which is celebrated each year since 14th November 1991 as a way of spreading awareness of the illness around the world.

Diabetes is a chronic disease where the pancreas either produces little or no insulin at all, which without treatment can lead to serious health problems, including death. This episode certainly has an underlying seriousness about it, especially since more than 450 million adults (1in11) are estimated to be living with the disease and almost 1 in 2 adults are undiagnosed but living with it. And as always, we discuss how technology has really helped those suffer from this disease, making their lives easier and saving them time. We also manage to have some fun and we discuss condensed milk and airplanes that take off from ships, yes, certainly some randomness in this episode.

In this episode we cover:

  1. What is World Diabetes Day how it was founded and when it happens.
  2. What is Diabetes and how it affects
  3. What the difference is between Type 1 and Type 2.
  4. How technology has helped those that are living with the disease.
  5. And when is ‘Condensed Milk Day’.

This is our third episode of Technology Unplugged, where the ‘Gurus’ discuss technological innovations which are associated with international and national days, all in a light-hearted manner, this episode has a serious theme, however. The podcasts are co-hosted by our very own #TimeSavingGurus, James Baker and Nathan Wright and will occasionally involve guest subject matter experts, or just guests that we want to invite to have a bit of fun with us.

In our next episode, we will discuss ‘World Television Day’ and the how we have watched and consumed television since the humble days of the analogue black and white television to HDTV’s and streaming services, this is sure to be a fun episode, check back here next week for our next instalment.
