Raising Awareness on World Diabetes Day

November 14th is World Diabetes Day, organized each year by the International Diabetes Federation to raise awareness around the rapid increase in diabetes diagnoses worldwide.

According to the World Health Organization, 422 million people suffer from diabetes - a condition that is currently on track to become the 7th leading cause of death by 2030.
