Description

These colourful posters compare the pathway to getting diabetes with the pathway of a river flowing to the sea. It highlights the warning period when a person first has a raised blood glucose level. The aim of the poster is to illustrate how people can make their own interventions in order to prevent the complications of diabetes. When an intervention is made the pathway no longer flows to the diabetes end but flows to a pathway closer to that of normal long life.
