Type 2 Diabetes Infographic


I would like to express my sincere gratitude to my professors, Dr. Lori Boies and Dr. Rebekah Mahoney, for providing their invaluable guidance, comments, and suggestions throughout the course of the project. I especially want to thank Dr. Boies for constantly inspiring me to work harder, particularly in helping me with how to approach my research. I would also like to thank Dr. Mahoney for showing empathy and teaching me the importance of collaboration and communication.

  1. This article or infographic was very interesting. The way you set this up is very cool and creative. When you hear the word diabetes, you automatically start to freak out, well at least I do. I know that having diabetes isn’t good for you but for some people, it is genetic, which can be annoying. Eating too much sugar, or too much salt can lead to diabetes, and being overweight can also lead to diabetes, there are a bunch of risk factors that can lead to diabetes. I really liked reading this infographic and it provided a lot of information.

  2. I really didn’t know much about type two diabetes or really know how people get it ,but this was filled great information that got straight to the point. I was also very surprised 1 in 10 people are have diabetes i had no idea that it affected that many people. This was a very good infographic and it taught me a lot more.

  3. This infographic is very informational and gets you straight to the point. Recently one of my family members was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and while I did do some research I couldn’t find much on the topic. I feel that you were able to provide answers to all of my basic questions on what it is and how it’s treated. It is a great infographic.

  4. The creativity behind infographics really amazes me. You created something that is both informational and makes me want to read and learn about your topic.

  5. Hi Muskaan. I find your infographic really important and interesting for everybody to know more about an illness that maybe a lot of people know that it exists, but not too many know what is it about or what does a patient go through. I think your work was very helpful for me to understand more about it. You used really good sources that made all your work trustworthy. Good job.

  6. Thank you for this fundamental information about type 2 diabetes, it gave me a lot of knowledge in terms of the affection of hormone insulin and the treatment, medicine that can help reduce glucose levels. However, it is sad to hear that this disease has no completely cure, hope that they can figure out a way to stop completely this type 2 diabetes.

  7. Hi Muskaan! This was a very informational infographic! As someone who has multiple members within my family who have had either gestational or type II diabetes, it was nice to understand the difference between all the types. This allowed me to be more informed about this topic and be more aware for when I see these members of my family again. Good luck on the awards!

  8. As a Type 1 Diabetic, I found this infographic to be really informational. I want to personally thank you for bringing awareness to Type 2, as diabetes as a whole is widely misunderstood and stigmatized.

  9. Your infographic was so informational, I have never actually taken the time to read about the differences in diabetes and it was nice to find something that made it simple. You had spread a lot of information, I had no idea how many people it affected or what caused it. Great infographic
