According to the International Diabetes Federation, “The World Diabetes Day 2014 campaign marks the first of a three-year (2014-16) focus on healthy living and diabetes. This year’s activities and materials will specifically address the topic of healthy eating and its importance both in the prevention of type 2 diabetes and the effective management of diabetes to avoid complications.” The IDF Diabetes Atlas indicates that there are roughly 382 million people living with diabetes worldwide. What is most disturbing about the disease is that it affects more people than we are aware of. Half of all people in the world with the disease go undiagnosed.
