Diabetes Kills one person every 8 seconds worldwide; One million amputations a year worldwide.   

The Diabetes Epidemic:

The escalating prevalence of type 2 diabetes is threatening to undermine healthcare systems throughout the world. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) estimates suggest that 380 million people will be affected by 2025, with one person dying every 10 seconds. At the beginning of the 20th century, diabetes was rare in Africa, however the prevalence in the 15 years leading to 2010 by almost 100%. The life expectancy of a person diagnosed with type 1 diabetes can be as low as 7 months in some parts of Nigeria, and with the impact of type 2 diabetes set to continue, the risk of related complications such as blindness, amputations and kidney disease are increasing, forcing additional burdens on communities already stretched to the limit by common life-threatening infections.

We at Famedix Pharmacy join the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) in calling for immediate action to tackle a disease that if not addressed urgently, will soon threaten the viability of our local economies. In line with global best practice in the public health management of Diabetes, Ukampala-Famedix propose that every diabetic patient have their own personal Blood Glucose Monitor and that all patients having first contact with healthcare institutions be screened for diabetes.
 
The benefits of the regular monitoring and control of blood sugar in the management of diabetes in order to prevent the complications of diabetes which can be debilitating cannot be overestimated.
