World Diabetes Day- 14th November

World Diabetes Day
14 November is World Diabetes Day, which aims to raise awareness of diabetes – a condition which affects around 3.2 million people in the UK.

A person with diabetes may have problems with their blood sugar levels which can soar too high (hyperglycaemia) or drop too low (hypoglycaemia). Though it can be difficult to know if their blood sugar is too high or too low, if a person with diabetes feels unwell, giving them a small amount of sugary food or drink can help rapidly correct their blood sugar levels.
