On the fourth Tuesday of March, the American Diabetes
Association (ADA) holds an annual "alert day." This event, which the
organization describes as a "wake-up call" for Americans, is important for citizens
of other countries, too. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the
global prevalence of diabetes continues to rise and "this number is likely to
more than double by 2030 without intervention".
