What do you think of the measuring tape theme for the world diabetes day ad at the top?

    Not sure what to think, but I noticed the blue measuring tape featured prominently in all the ads, and one mentions finding out if you are at risk in combination with the measuring tape?

    Oh, just saw it. Yeah...type 2, and even then, there are people of "normal" weight who get Type 2 too. Doesn't bother me either way.

    I think I also saw something like do 14 minutes of exercise and report your number at a certain time. My 5 year old exercises all day when he's not in school lol.

    yea i dont get it ...there isnt really anything to connect it to type 2 in the add's other than coming up with your own idea in your head ...i find it not revalant to either really as far as raising general worldwide awarness for d period but whateva im not on there marketing team ;)

    I don't really get why they think CWD is an appropriate audience. Or where world d. day gets their money.

    I was rather offended, considering how much effort people put into getting people to realize that type 1 isn't preventable, to see this so prominently on "our" site.

    Unfortunately, we are the minority in the "diabetes" world.
