REPORT

An amazing amount gets done each year now with World

Diabetes Day. This is a brief look at what happened this year.

World Diabetes Day 2019

T

he International Diabetes

Federation (IDF) urged

people to test their

diabetes knowledge and

assess their risk of Type

2 diabetes (T2D) as part of diabetes

awareness month this November and

World Diabetes Day (WWD).

The theme on 14th November this

year was 'Family and Diabetes', aiming

to raise awareness of the impact that

diabetes has on the family and support

network of those affected. It promoted

the family's role in the management,

care and prevention of diabetes. Families

were urged to learn more about diabetes

warning signs and find out their own

risk of T2D after research conducted

by IDF in 2018 discovered that parents

would struggle to spot Type 1 diabetes

in their children, underlining the need for

education and awareness to help people

spot early diabetes warning signs.

Being aware of the warning signs is

spread the message that the onset and

diagnosis of diabetes can happen at any

age but with the support of your family, it

is manageable.

New devices

Surrey-based healthcare company

GlucoRx,has launched three new

products to mark World Diabetes Day

- a diabetic retinopathy eye scanner, an

insulin patch pump and CGM sensor.

GlucoRx MD Chris Chapman stated,

"It is estimated that every two minutes

someone is diagnosed with a form of

diabetes. It is also calculated that around

a million people have Type 2 diabetes

but are as yet undiagnosed. Our Artelus

Retinal Scanner is something that can

be used in clinic to screen for diabetic

retinopathy. If someone with diabetes

attends a hospital that does not have

the equipment, they may be referred

elsewhere, but often people fail to make

also an issue across society, particularly

with symptoms being milder in Type 2,

which accounts for 90% of all diabetes

cases. One in two people currently living

with diabetes are undiagnosed and the

majority of these have T2D.

JDRF encouraged people to be a Type

1 Superhero on WDD by donating to help

its ground-breaking research. The charity

also launched a myth-busting quiz around

Type 1 diabetes, test your knowledge

Ascensia's 2019 World Diabetes Day

campaign celebrated the crucial support

that families provide people with diabetes.

The campaign highlighted 24 personal

stories of families from across 22 different

countries, offering a unique insight into

the ways that families help people with

diabetes in their day to day life.

The UK video was from Mimi Astle,

who has had Type 1 diabetes since she

was a baby and who lives in Bristol.

Her mother, Annie, says she wants to
