On Wednesday, November 14, diabetes is celebrated worldwide. From two afternoons, the Riga Central Market will hold an information campaign dedicated to the World Diaspora Day, during which they will be able to get acquainted with this illness and learn more about its manifestations. It will also be possible to consult a doctor at the event.
The head of the Latvian Diabetes Federation, Endocrinologist Indra Stelman, told the World Diaspora this year and the following year with the motto "Diabetes and Family" to encourage the family to consider how to help people with diabetes to support it, as the family is already a place where a person feels safe, supportive and loving.

"Today, on diabetes day, a federation of diabetes in the central Riga market creates an educational campaign to inform people about diabetes, risk factors and the first signs of diabetes mellitus. In the period from 14:00 to 17:00, the pavilion for the central market will allow you to consult nutritionists, consult a doctor's endocrinologist, and it will also be possible to check your blood cholesterol levels. Let's get free coupons to allow people to go to the lab in good time and check blood glucose levels, "Stelman said.
In his interview with the "Morning Panorama" program, Stelman, in return, admitted that one in 11 people in Latvia had "diabetes mellitus". If the patient does not go to a doctor for a long time, he has long lived with an elevated level of sugar, it affects health and causes complications of diabetes. Schellman also found that Type 2 diabetes had become "younger" as more and more people were infected in the thirties.
