World diabetes day celebration 2022 in UK

World Diabetes Day (WDD) was created in 1991 by IDF and the World Health Organization in response to growing concerns about the escalating health threat posed by diabetes. World Diabetes Day became an official United Nations Day in 2006 with the passage of United Nation Resolution 61/225. It is marked every year on 14 November, the birthday of Sir Frederick Banting, who co-discovered insulin along with Charles Best in 1922.

On the occasion of the world diabetes day, the Global Diabetes Initiatives celebrated with a series of activities with detail and more shown in the pictures below.

It is very natural to experience a range of emotions when you first learn that you have diabetes, including shock, rage, and denial. These unfavorable emotions may fade as you learn more about the disease and what you need to do to stay healthy.

However, mental anguish related to diabetes affects roughly 4 out of 10 people with the disease. This has significant long-term health repercussions and undermines their capacity to control their diabetes. How well you are able to take care of yourself has a significant impact on how well your diabetes is controlled.

Distress related to diabetes is not considered a mental health issue. Instead, it is a reaction to the strains of dealing with a difficult long-term condition. Because they are not the same and call for different treatments, depression and diabetes distress must be distinguished from one another.
