World Diabetes Day 2019

This year the main theme for World Diabetes Day is family and diabetes, raising the awareness of the impact it can have on those around you.

Starting at the beginning, being able to spot the key warning signs of diabetes can be paramount for early diagnosis and treatment. However, half the people living with diabetes are doing so unknowingly. For this reason, the International Diabetes Federation wants to escalate the awareness of diabetes by educating the public. The hope is that this will increase recognition of warning signs and early treatment, and reduce the risks of long-term health complications. Diabetes requires constant management, ranging from daily medication and monitoring, to application of a healthy lifestyle – so having the support of family and friends is key.
