Managing diabetes in your family
November is Diabetes Awareness Month. Here's everything you need to know.
Diabetes affects up to five percent of all South Africans.
Parents are terrified of this potentially life-threatening condition. Fortunately,
however, there is plenty of information to equip you to manage the condition in
your family so that you can all lead healthy lives.
Whether you have active diabetes in your family, or a
history of it, why not take some time to find out more about diabetes. If you
are pregnant and diabetic, or if you suspect your child may have the condition,
it is important that you consult your doctor.
