Some 200,000 people in Trinidad and Tobago are suffering with Diabetes. Some people are unaware of their condition. First Vice President of the Diabetes Foundation, Andrew Dhanoo this morning told News Power Now that primary school children are significantly heavier in weight than children of the same age group in the United States.
The Diabetes Association of Trinidad and Tobago hosts “Diabetes Care- A Family Affair” from September 29th to September 30th. Mr. Dhanoo said a holistic approach to the situation is being taken this year, where the entire family will be targeted in ensuring that everyone is educated to ensure change.
