What's on?

14th November World Diabetes Day

09 Nov 2012 | By INSERM (Newsroom) | France | International


According to the WHO, diabetes affects 347 million people the world over. This chronic disease occurs when the pancreas no longer produces enough insulin (type1 diabetes), or when the body is unable to correctly use the insulin it produces (type 2 diabetes). Those affected by diabetes are obliged to keep to a strict diet, or must take regular exercise.

During the World Diabetes Day organised by the International Diabetes Federation and the WHO on Wednesday 14 November, Inserm presented the data from the latest studies. (Download the press kit)
