Default World health Organisation diabetes

Hello hi my grand maa has diabetes problem and I want to help her so tell , what is the process of World health organization what are the techniques used for this disease and what how I can contact to WHO?

Diabetes is a chronic, metabolic disease characterized by elevated levels of blood glucose (or blood sugar), which leads over time to serious damage to the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves.
There is a globally agreed target to halt the rise in diabetes and obesity by 2025. WHO aims to stimulate and support the adoption of effective measures for the surveillance, prevention and control of diabetes and its complications, particularly in low and middle-income countries.

The WHO "Global strategy on diet, physical activity and health" complements WHO's diabetes work by focusing on population-wide approaches to promote healthy diet and regular physical activity, thereby reducing the growing global problem of overweight people and obesity.

Here I am providing you report of a WHO/IDF Consultation on
Definition and Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus and intermediate


There are important differences between (i) defining diabetes to
identify an individual with diabetes and the consequent clinical and
social implications of this diagnosis and (ii) defining diabetes for
epidemiological purposes. In the former the diagnosis requires careful substantiation with retesting on another day unless the person is symptomatic and the plasma glucose is unequivocally elevated whereas in epidemiological studies repeat testing is rarely performed.
When repeat testing is performed, approximately 75% of
people with diabetes detected in epidemiological studies are con-
firmed to have clinical diabetes.
In the absence of a more specific biological marker to define diabetes, plasma glucose estimation remains the basis of diagnostic criteria. Other considerations also impact on how a diagnosis of diabetes should be made. Does diabetes represent the upper end of a continuous distribution of glucose or a discrete entity? While hyperglycaemia is an important prognostic parameter, is it the central or most important feature determining prognosis in people with hyperglycaemia? In terms of screening asymptomatic people, how can we best balance the medical, social and economic benefits and costs?
Although such questions are still debated, knowledge on diagnostic cut points for diabetes has been derived from two sets of information

Rest of the report is attached in below file which is free of cost for you.
