Prof. Dr. Lutfi Zylbeari, following his speech, appealed to "raise awareness, especially among women, as well as health professionals on the role and harmful effects of diabetes in pregnant women; early discovery of gestational diabetes; conduct frequent visits to the GP for testing of glycemia, HbA1c.proteinuiria, C-cystatin, microalbuminuria, blood urea, electrolytes etc; to do physical activities to spend the body energy in order to reduce the level of blood glucose and as the most preferred during pregnancy are: swimming, slow running and walking", said Professor Lutfi Zylbeari.

Meanwhile, Dr. Spec. Beqir Mahmudi focused on the problems of patients with parasites, who, as he said, should work to detect diabetes as early as possible to slow down the development of the complications that this disease causes in this group of people.
