This Saturday, the 14th of November is World Diabetes Day. Diabetes has become a growing health concern in recent years with millions suffering with the condition on a yearly basis. It is estimated that by the year 2035, up to 600 million people could be living with diabetes worldwide.
World Diabetes Day (WDD) is the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign with events organised all over the world. It was set up by the Internal Diabetes Foundation and the World Health Organisation in 1991 and aims to unite the global diabetes community in order to produce a powerful voice for the awareness and treatment of diabetes.
The theme of this year’s event focuses on healthy living and starting each day by having a healthy breakfast.
