5 things to know about diabetes

World #DiabetesDay aims to inform and raise public awareness about the causes, symptoms and #treatment of the condition.

Approximately 8.5% of adults worldwide suffer from diabetes, with type 2 diabetes being the most common form.


5️⃣ things to know:

1. It is a chronic condition and currently incurable.

2. It used to affect adults only, but is now increasingly diagnosed in young adults as well.

3. May go unnoticed due to lack of symptoms or awareness.

4. It can lead to serious complications if left untreated for a long time.

5. It poses a higher risk to groups of people:

• overweight or obese

• inactive people who do not exercise

• heredity

• history of gestational diabetes and prediabetes

• history of insulin resistance

• people with high triglyceride levels, low HDL cholesterol and high blood pressure


In our chemists we carry out blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure tests which are extremely important to reduce these risks.

Early diagnosis and treatment, a healthy lifestyle and regular check-ups are key factors in the life of a person suffering from Diabetes or even for prevention.
