H.G. Wells and his War of Diabetes

H.G. Wells and his War of Diabetes
The famed science fiction author, who is remembered on the anniversary of his passing, was most noted for his works entitled War of the Worlds and The Time Machine. In his stories, he captured the minds of others and the possibilities of the world around us. However, throughout the life of Wells, he battled another dibilitating monster, diabetes.  Wells had type 1 diabetes which plagues so many of the individuals who come to NTI looking for help getting back into the workplace. 



Type 1 diabetes, which affects 5% of all Americans. In this form of diabetes, the immune system mistakenly destroys the cells in your pancreas that make insulin. Without insulin, your blood glucose rises and is higher than normal, which is called hyperglycemia. 


Through the effort of Wells and the disability that plagued him, he established the British Diabetic Association. If he had a time machine and was able to fast forward today, he would be able to see his longstanding effort.  Today, the British Diabetic Association is known as Diabetes UK, providing a source of information, prevention, fundraising and research. With over 300,000 supporters, 5,000 volunteers, and over 6,000 healthcare professionals, Wells would be proud of his efforts to help this War in the World.
