According to statistics from the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) in 2019, the number of SA adults with diabetes has soared to 4.5-million people, more than double the figure estimated in 2017, with 12.7% of adults in SA diagnosed with diabetes in 2019, a 137% increase on the 2017 figure of 5.4%. But, as alarming, are the number of people who are undiagnosed, living blissfully unaware, while diabetes remains in hiding. The limited data suggest that there are 0.630 to 2.394 million people with undiagnosed diabetes. It is therefore crucial to promote awareness on the prevention and the management of diabetes!
