Diabetes: Preventing and living with the disease
diabinfo.de provides background information on a wide range of diabetes-related topics in its English-language section. In the “Preventing Diabetes” section, visitors can learn more about what can be done to prevent diabetes, which factors increase the risk of diabetes, and how to motivate themselves to lead a balanced lifestyle. The pages of “Living with Diabetes” provide information on the basics of the disease, treatment, secondary diseases, and everyday life with diabetes.
The texts are scientifically verified, up-to-date and neutral. Findings from medicine and diabetes research are presented in a generally understandable way. In the media center videos explain briefly and understandably important questions all around the disease. The “Diabetes A-Z” section gets to the heart of complex technical terms.
