Why do we celebrate World Diabetes Day
By Dr. Tom Babu, MD, DNB (Endo)| 17 Comments

November 14 is celebrated as World Diabetes day. The objective of World Diabetes Day is to build global awareness on Diabetes across the world. It was introduced in 1991 by the International Diabetes Federation and the World Health Organization in response to the alarming rise of diabetes around the world. World Diabetes Day is a campaign that features a new theme chosen by the International Diabetes Federation each year to address issues facing the global diabetes community. While the campaigns last the whole year, the day itself marks the birthday of Frederick Banting who, along with Charles Best and John James Rickard Macleod, first conceived the idea which led to the discovery of insulin in 1922. This year’s theme is on healthy eating which will focus on the importance of a balanced meal in our daily lives.

The global diabetes community including International Diabetes Federation member associations, diabetes organizations, NGOs, health departments, civil society, individuals and companies develop an extensive range of activities, tailored to a variety of groups.The blue circle is the universal symbol for diabetes. Until 2006, there was no global symbol for diabetes. The purpose of the symbol is to give diabetes a common identity. It aims to support all existing efforts to raise awareness about diabetes and inspire new activities, bring diabetes to the attention of the general public. It also provide a means to show support for the fight against diabetes. The circle occurs frequently in nature and has thus been widely employed since the dawn of humankind. The significance is overwhelmingly positive. Across cultures, the circle can symbolize life and health. Most significantly for the campaign, the circle symbolizes unity. The global diabetes community came together to support a United Nations Resolution on diabetes and needs to remain united to make a difference. The blue border of the circle reflects the colour of the sky and the flag of the United Nations. The United Nations is in itself a symbol of unity amongst nations and is the only organization that can signal to governments everywhere that it is time to fight diabetes and reverse the global trends that will impede economic development and cause so much suffering and premature death.

This November, let us take a pledge to make our lives free from Diabetes. As Diabetes is a multifactorial disease, small leaps in terms of physical activity and diet can go a long way in preventing Diabetes in future generations. Let us also spread this message to our patients, our friends, relatives, care givers and people near and far to us. Let us work together for a world free of Diabetes. Together we can….
