He, however, decried that government at all levels neglect diabetes issues and other non-communicable diseases which he pointed out are more problematic.

In his lecture, a Consultant on diabetes at Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital Bauchi, Dr Sule Bathnna, advised diabetics to be eating balanced diets, foods with less sugar, moderately ripe fruits and at least 30 minutes exercise daily as ways of managing diabetes and healthy living.
