On November 14, World Diaspora Day was celebrated in 1991, on the initiative of the World Health Organization and the International Federation for Diabetes. Every year, a topic has been chosen, such as "Women and Diabetes – Our Right to a Healthy Future," so people around the world can get as much information as possible about this disease.
This day, the public brings about the methods of preventing diabetes, symptoms, risks, and information on how it can be kept under control for diagnosed people.
What is the theme of the World Diabetes Day this year?
The theme of World Diabetes Day 2018 and 2019 is "Family and Diabetes", a campaign that should draw attention to the effects of this serious illness among children and young people. Since this condition does not show clear symptoms, it is revealed only by underlying control, which is why testing is extremely important. We need to be aware of what each type of diabetes means, because life in life means a chance for life.
There are about 2 million people in this Romanian disease, and the number of people in the world in the last 30 years has grown significantly to over 366 million, and another 280 million are susceptible to illness.
Most of them suffer from type 2 diabetes, which is based on obesity and sedentarism. It's no wonder that more and more people are adopting an unbalanced lifestyle because of the over-busy and stressful program.
According to last year's statistics, more than 199 million women worldwide suffer from diabetes, and over two million people die of complications caused by this condition. Worldwide, about 4 million people die of diabetes.
