World #Diabetes Day 2017- Women & Diabetes:Our Right To A Healthy Future!INFOGRAPHICS.


November 14 is World Diabetes Day and this year (2017) emphasis is on all the women around the world at risk of becoming diabetic and indeed,those living with Diabetes Mellitus (a medical condition characterised by the inability of the body's cells to utilise blood glucose/sugar- either because of a lack of the control chemical,Insulin, or as a result of resistance to the effects of Insulin). You may ask the all important question on the minds of many men today,"why the emphasis on women"? To appreciate the magnitude of the problem and resultant global efforts towards amelioration,see International Diabetes Federation Infographics and other references below.
