IDF 2018 Programme

The increase in rates of diabetes across the globe brings with it an increase in diabetes complications. Poor diabetes management, whether through lack of education, limited access to care or undiagnosed conditions, means that diabetes complications are a real problem in most countries. A large number of people with diabetes are unaware of having complications. It is estimated that every
30 seconds a lower limb or part of a lower limb is lost to amputation somewhere in the world as a consequence of diabetes.1

The aim of the IDF Diabetes Complications Congress 2018 was to provide participants with the latest research, treatments and tools to limit and treat diabetes complications. The ultimate goal was to improve outcomes and quality of life for people with diabetes.
