Federación Mexicana de Diabetes (FMD) was established in Nuevo León, Monterrey in 1988.

FMD is a civil association that represents the interests of people with diabetes. It has affiliates in different locations in Mexico, where patient care and support is provided. To accomplish this, we gather a group of people who live with diabetes and those who are linked to it directly or indirectly, such as physicians, health professionals, family and anyone who is interested in the subject.

By creating awareness among people about diabetes, we strengthen the knowledge about diabetes which encourages the diagnosis, as well as the support for those who live with this health disorder. Furthermore, the orientation of the patients reduces the probability to develop early and late complications of this disease.

The main focus of FMD’s work for decades has been diabetes education, for people with diabetes and their families. Today, education in this area is advancing rapidly in México, thanks to the effort that the FMD and its afilliates have been giving to this issue.

Main Focus

To promote diabetes education aimed at people with this lifelong condition, general population and health professionals, in order to make timely diagnoses, prevent new cases and complications of diabetes.


The Mexican Diabetes Federation (FMD) provides care through four fundamental programs:

Network of associations: networking with 20 associations that provide direct care or fieldwork to people with diabetes and their condition.
Diabetes education: training in various formats to promote diabetes education in the search for the prevention of type 2 diabetes, as well as timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment for all types of Diabetes Mellitus. In this program we have these activities: Course for diabetes educators, course for people with diabetes and families, seminars, facebook live, and National Congress (every two years).
Raising community awareness: We do this through awareness campaigns to disseminate relevant information and promote healthy lifestyles.
Life for a Child: an international program with a presence in Mexico that supports 1,100 children aged 2 to 23 with type 1 diabetes who live in vulnerable situations.
I hope this helps! Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to translate or if you need further assistance.
