Today is World Diabetes Day
World Diabetes Day (WDD) is celebrated each year on November 14 and is a major public health event worldwide.
Diabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, and lower-limb amputation. Research has also shown a connection between diabetes and dementia, hearing loss, and forms of cancer.
You can support the call and raise awareness of the need for more diabetes education in a number of ways. Visit www.worlddiabetesday.org/ for more.
