ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the prevention and treatment of diabetes and its complications. She mentions that diabetes is associated with serious complications that includes heart disease and stroke, and that through control of blood pressure, proper nutrition and physical activity, the development of complications can be prevented or delayed. However, she argued that there is a substantial gap between recommended diabetes care and the care patients actually receive in the healthcare settings.
