Opinion: North West Health supports local women with diabetes

International Diabetes Day is November 14.

As 2017 comes to a close there is one significant event that rolls around each year- International Diabetes Day, on November 14.

This year’s theme is “women and diabetes” which has been developed to highlight the importance of affordable and necessary access for all women at risk of or living with diabetes to the vital diabetes medicines, technologies, information, and self-management education they require.

In the North West, supporting women living with diabetes and those who develop Gestational Diabetes is a key aspect of our diabetes educators and the entire North West Hospital and Health Service.

Diabetes is a disease that affects over 199 million women worldwide, and this total is projected to increase to 313 million by 2040.
