World Diabetes Day 2017 is on Tuesday, November 14, 2017: Did you know that November 14 is the World diabetes day?
Tuesday, November 14, 2017 is World Diabetes Day 2017. World Diabetes Day is the primary global awareness campaign of the diabetes world and is held on November 14 of each year.
World Diabetes Day is the primary global awareness campaign of the diabetes world and is held on November 14 of each year.
World Diabetes Day was first presented in 1991, and established by both the International Diabetic issues Federation and the Globe Health Organization. In response to the increase in cases of Diabetic issues worldwide, it was determined to select a day of the year to raise awareness of Diabetic issues and related causes. The day chosen was the birthday party of Sir Frederick Banting, a medical researcher which co-discovered Insulin and was the initial person to utilize it on humans.
The motif of World Diabetes Day on a regular basis changes. As an example, the style for the day between 2009 and 2013 was education and avoidance, and in the past such themes have actually been used such as civils rights, way of living, obesity, the disadvantaged and at risk, and children/teenagers. Various events all over the world mark the day including increasing awareness in the media, lectures and conferences, sporting occasions, and leaflet/poster campaigning. "Going blue" is one more international event to mark the day, where folks wear blue and landmark buildings and monoliths around the world are lit up in blue, to help spread recognition of the day.
I was aware, Princess. World Diabetes Day is held on the 14th November each year. Sadly, it seems to take someone like yourself to bring this to the attention of others around us. The diabetes authorities do little, as far as I can see, to advertise it.
You are, of course, very correct in your assertion that being overweight isn't the only reason that people get diabetes though being overweight does put those who carry the disposition for developing it at a higher risk. Sadly, some people tend to focus on just this one thing. If it were true that being overweight was the only reason for developing diabetes then surely every person that was overweight would be diagnosed, and this simply isn't true to the facts.
Dietary control, as well as taking more exercise, would, in my humble opinion, put people in a fitter way to fight whatever life has to throw at us. (I'm sure you already know that most type 1 diabetics have a tendency to be underweight, especially when they're first diagnosed due to the way that diabetes works when glucose (sugar) control is poor.)
why nov 14th regarded as a world diabetes day ?
I don't really know what the significance of this day is. It is in the middle of diabetes awareness month and it is not on a weekend. That is probably how it came together.
