November 14 is World Diabetes Day, the theme of the year 2019 is Family and Diabetes.
In this diabetes awareness month, families are urged to learn and spot the warning signs of diabetes early and find out what is the risk of type 2 diabetes. The survey found a lack of knowledge about diabetes that four-in-five parents would have trouble recognizing the warning signs.
This became a big concern, due to the signs being milder in type 2 diabetes and it is the most prevalent form of the condition, responsible for around 90% of all diabetes.
You could find diabetes knowledge and the risk of type 2 diabetes through many websites.
