In Your Shoes Fair 2016

It is estimated that 300 million people around the world between the ages of 20 and 79 suffer from diabetes mellitus. Most of them do not become aware of it early enough to receive appropriate treatment.

If diabetes mellitus goes untreated and is not under control, it can cause serious health problems and even death. One of them is “diabetic foot,” which occurs by uncontrolled glucose levels and other factors that come into play in people with hypertension and diabetes, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. These cause damage to the vessels and nerves, and the person will develop health complications sooner or later.

In your Shoes is an exclusive shoe fair, 30% of the proceeds from the show will be donated to the Mexican Diabetes Association in support with Virtual Miss Latin America organization, we can make this possible.
The fair will last for a week from August 14 to August 21, 2016.

Si stima che sono 300 milioni le persone in tutto il mondo, di età compresa tra i 20 e i 79 anni, che soffrono di diabete mellito.
La maggior parte di loro non vengono a conoscenza in tempo della malattia per ricevere cure adeguate.
Se il diabete mellito non viene curata e non è sotto controllo può causare gravi problemi di salute e persino la morte. Uno di loro è il “piede diabetico”, che si manifesta con livelli incontrollati di glucosio nel sangue e di altri fattori che entrano in gioco nelle persone affette da ipertensione e diabete. L’elevata pressione sanguigna e livelli elevati di colesterolo causano danni ai vasi e nervi e la persona svilupperà complicazioni di salute, prima o poi.
“In Your Shoes” è una fiera di scarpe esclusiva, il 30% del ricavato della manifestazione sarà devoluto al Mexican Diabetes Association. Grazie al sostegno dell’Organizzazione Miss Virtual LatinoAmerica che siamo in grado di rendere questo possibile.
La fiera durerà per una settimana, dal 14 agosto a 21 agosto, 2016.

La diabetes mellitus es una enfermedad de sumo cuidado; si no se controla o trata a tiempo, puede ocasionar problemas muy graves e incluso la muerte. Uno de estos problemas es el pie diábético, que aparece cuando existen niveles inadecuados de glucosa en sangre y otros factores que concurren con frecuencia en personas con diabetes −como hipertensión arterial e hipercolesterolemia− que provocan daño en los vasos y nervios que pueden producir complicaciones a mediano y largo plazo.
En sus zapatos es una feria exclusiva de zapatos, 30% de las ganancias de la feria seran donadas a la Asociación Mexicana de diabetes, en apoyo con la organización Miss Virtual Latinoamérica , podemos hacer esto posible.
