14th November - World's Day of Diabetes


World Diabetes Day 2023 is a global awareness campaign that aims to raise understanding about diabetes, advocate for improved diabetes care and prevention, and support those affected by the condition. This day serves as a rallying point for the worldwide diabetes community, including healthcare professionals, organisations and individuals, to address the growing diabetes epidemic.


  • In diabetes type 1, the pancreas does not make insulin, because the body’s immune system attacks the islet cells in the pancreas that make insulin.

  • In diabetes type 2, the pancreas makes less insulin than used to, and your body becomes resistant to insulin. This means your body has insulin, but stops being able to use it.

Diabetes 1 can not be cured or reversed, but you can prevent diabetes type 2, which is more common nowadays and many people don't even know they have it.


The three main ways to prevent type 2 diabetes are:


  • Eating well .

  • Moving more .

  • Losing weight if you are living with obesity or overweight or have an unhealthy waist size.

Eating diet low on (bad) carbs and being physically active can reverse diabetes type 2.
