Diabetes is one of the most life threatening disease if not address correctly. It may lead to health complications such as kidney failure, blindness or amputation. The main reason why diabetic people suffer because of lack knowledge about the illness.
According to International Diabetes Federation the theme for the World Diabetes Day 2018-2019 will be 'The Family and Diabetes'. A two-year timeframe has been chosen with an objective:
1. To raise awareness of the impact that diabetes has on the family and support network of those affected.
2. Promote the role of the family in the management, care, prevention and education of diabetes.
