Abstract: iabetes is a condition, which, if tackled properly can be controlled, allowing the patient to have a relatively normal quality of life. However, if left unattended, complications can be life-threatening. According to the International Diabetes Foundation, in 2014 there were 35,200 cases of diabetes in Malta, this not including those with impaired glucose tolerance and impaired fasting glucose, which can both lead to diabetes. This leaves Malta with the second highest percentage of diabetes in the Mediterranean, surpassed only by Cyprus. Reference to the Malta Pharmaceutical Students’ Association's (MPSA) contribution in educating the people and holding campaigns regarding diabetes.
