DIABETES WORLD DAY
This is commemorated on November 14 of each year, coinciding with the birth of Canadian doctors and researchers Frederick Banting who, together with Charles Best, James Collip, and J.J.R. Macleod, discovered insulin, in October 1921.
In 1991, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Health Organization (WHO) declared November 14 as World Diabetes Day in response to the alarming increase in cases of this disease in the world.
This is ECNT which occurs when the pancreas does not produce enough insulin or when the body is inefficient using the insulin it produces. Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar. When diabetes is not controlled, hyperglycemia (increased blood sugar) occurs, which over time, damages many organs and systems, especially the nerves and blood vessels.
