We are declaring March 13, 2020 as the inaugural Global Hypoglycemia Awareness Day.
“The low blood sugar of today is the diabetes of tomorrow.” – Dr. Seale Harris
Dr. Harris was awarded the 1949 Distinguished Service Medal of the American Medical Association. Dr. Seale Harris was born on March 13, 1870 and was raised in a large, loving family in Cedartown, Georgia “where the golden rule was the law of the home.” Dr. Harris received his M.D. from the University of Virginia and made an amazing career in medicine, notably his work revealing hyperinsulinism.
So, we honor Dr. Seale Harris’s memory and groundbreaking work with this annual day to bring about greater awareness of hypoglycemia and the blood sugar roller coaster. 2020 is also the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation.
Hypoglycemia is a critically important health issue…a “canary in the coal mine of metabolic disease”
We refer to Reactive Hypoglycemia as the “blood sugar roller coaster”.
