Health promotion is the process by which one gains improvements and increased control over ones health. It spans beyond the individual and focuses on wide range of social and environmental interventions. Diabetes is a chronic disease, by which the human bodys ability to produce insulin is impaired, thereby resulting in abnormal metabolic function and elevated levels of glucose in the blood. It is a disease that affects 8% of the worlds population and 25% above the age of 60. Therefore, significant strategies have been implemented to influence management and understanding on how we can improve the way diabetes is managed in society. Both lifestyle and pharmacological (Metformin) interventions have been explored in great depth The Diabetes prevention program, further self-management programs through the use of video games and technology have been explored and have had an impact on the management of diabetes in our society today.
