The World Diabetes Day was instituted by United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in 2007

Diabetes is a chronic, progressive non-communicable disease (NCD) characterised by elevated levels of blood sugar (blood glucose).

 It occurs when either the pancreas does not produce enough of the insulin hormone or the body cannot effectively use the insulin it produces.
