Since 1980, the number of people affected by Diabetes has increased dramatically. In fact, it has nearly quadrupled. In light of this, the World Health Organisation has decided to dedicate World Health Day 2016, 7 April, to spread awareness about the disease. Diabetes is a metabolic dysfunction that prevents the body from assimilating sugar in a proper, efficient way. Since we at QNET have your health and well-being at the top of our minds, we want to help celebrate this day with you.
Let us take a look, together, at some key facts about this disease and what we can do towards its prevention and treatment.
Beat Diabetes: 4 Things You Didn’t Know About It
That’s roughly the amount of people worldwide that have diabetes, a number likely to more than double in the next 20 years. This becomes a huge threat particularly in countries where access to medical resources are scarce. If untreated, Diabetes can lead to all kinds of complications, and even death.
The major forms are: Type 1, Type 2, and Gestational Diabetes. The most common type is Type 2 with around 90% of diabetic people suffering from it. The Gestational form, on the other hand, appears during female pregnancies and is usually temporary.
Normal, healthy living, is still achievable for all those affected. It is essential that the disease is diagnosed in a timely manner and well managed through blood glucose control, healthy diet, physical activity and proper medical treatment if necessary.
Prevention Is KEY
Just 30 minutes of regular training, combined with a healthy diet, can drastically lower the probability of contracting the Type 2 Diabetes.
