November 14 is World Diabetes Day

On November 14, the world's attention is focused on the issues of diagnosis and prevention of diabetes, because it is World Diabetes Day.

Diabetes is a chronic disease in which the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or the body cannot effectively use the insulin produced.

More than 1,000,000 people die prematurely in Europe due to type 2 diabetes.

A bitter disease with a sweet name is the main cause of kidney failure, significantly increases the risk of leg ulcers, their infection and ultimately amputation, and is the cause of 1% of cases of blindness. People suffering from diabetes have a 2-3 times higher risk of heart attack and stroke.

In addition to the fact that diabetes is a common problem - in Ukraine it is the 3rd most common after CVD and oncology, its course is often asymptomatic, which makes diagnosis and treatment very difficult.

Determine your individual risk of type 2 diabetes using the online test of the Center for Public Health at the link and consult a doctor about further diagnosis if you are in the risk group!
