It is with much sadness and regret that the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) has received the news of the passing of Reghunadh Raghavan Nair, an IDF Young Leader in Diabetes from India.
Reghunadh joined the IDF Young Leaders in Diabetes Programme in Melbourne in 2013. Reghunadh was a real inspiration for many Young Leaders. He had a true passion to help people with diabetes and was about to conduct research to test children for diabetes in schools in India.
The entire IDF family is deeply saddened by this sudden passing at such a young age. It truly underscores the fact that diabetes is a cruel and indiscriminate disease with devastating and sometimes fatal complications.
Our sincere sympathy is extended to his family in their bereavement.
Reghunadh Raghavan Nair 1984-2014
