World Diabetes Day: WHO announces new diabetes programme

Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has announced the Global Diabetes Compact, a comprehensive and inclusive approach to support countries in implementing effective programmes for the prevention and management of diabetes.

The WHO gave the announcement in a statement posted on its website to commemorate the World Diabetes Day, globally celebrated on November 14.

Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces.

“WHO is announcing the Global Diabetes Compact, a comprehensive and inclusive approach to support countries in implementing effective programmes for the prevention and management of diabetes.

“The Compact will bring together in one package all WHO materials available for the prevention and management of diabetes, both existing and new.

“On the prevention side, particular focus will be given to reducing obesity, especially among young people.

“On the treatment side, emphasis will be on improving access to diabetes medicines and technologies, in particular in low- and middle-income countries.

“Key to the success of the Compact will be alignment and united action across all sectors ̶ public, private and philanthropic,’’ it stated.

According to the UN health agency, this year’s World Diabetes Day falls during a global pandemic which has already taken the lives of well over a million people.

“People with diabetes are paying a particularly high price.

“Not only do they have a higher risk of severe COVID-19 disease and death when infected, but many are having difficulty accessing the treatment they need due to disruptions to essential health services.

“The pandemic has exacerbated a situation that was already extremely concerning.

“WHO estimates that six per cent of the world’s population has diabetes.

“The total number today is four times what it was in 1980. What’s more, the number is rising most rapidly in low-and-middle-income countries, which are the least well-equipped to provide treatment.’’

WHO stated that the gravity of the situation demanded a strong, united response from all organisations working in the areas of monitoring, prevention and treatment of diabetes.

BODY How Does Diabetes Affect The Body?


Knowing how diabetes affects your body can help you look after your body and prevent diabetic complications from developing.

Many of the effects of diabetes stem from the same guilty parties; namely high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and a lack of blood glucose control.

SIGNS OF DIABETES
When undiagnosed or uncontrolled, the effects of diabetes on the body can be noticed by the classic symptoms of diabetes, namely:

Increased thirst
Frequent need to urinate
Fatigue
Blurred vision and Tingling or pain in the hands, feet and/or legs

LONG TERM EFFECTS OF DIABETES ON THE BODY


In addition to the symptoms, diabetes can cause long term damage to our body. The long term damage is commonly referred to as diabetic complications

Diabetes affects our blood vessels and nerves and therefore can affect any part of the body.

However, certain parts of our body are affected more than other parts.
Diabetic complications will usually take a number of years of poorly controlled diabetes to develop. Complications are not a certainty and can be kept at bay and prevented by maintaining a strong level of control on your diabetes, your blood pressure and cholesterol

These can all be helped by keeping to a healthy diet, avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, and incorporating regular activity into your daily regime in order to keep blood sugar levels within recommended blood glucose level guidelines

THE EFFECT OF DIABETES ON THE HEART
Diabetes and coronary heart disease are closely related.

Diabetes contributes to high blood pressure and is linked with high cholesterol which significantly increases the risk of heart attacks and cardiovascular disease.



DIABETES AND STROKES
Similar to how diabetes affects the heart, high blood pressure and cholesterol raises the risk of strokes.

HOW DIABETES AFFECTS THE EYES
A relatively common complication of diabetes is diabetic retinopathy

As with all complications, this condition is brought on by a number of years of poorly controlled or uncontrolled diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy has a number of symptoms

Damage to the kidneys takes place over a period of years and can picked up by nephropathy screening before it gets too serious. Treatment includes lifestyle changes and may include medicine to treat high blood pressure and cholesterol.

DIABETES AND ITS EFFECTS ON THE NERVES
The effects of diabetes on the nerves can be serious as the nerves are involved in so many of our bodily functions, from movement and digestion through to sex and reproduction.

The presence of nerve damage (neuropathy) is commonly noticed by:

Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
Lack of arousal in the penis or clitoris
Excessive sweating or
Diagnosis of delayed stomach emptying
Treatments for neuropathy concentrates on reducing pain but medication such blood pressure lowering drugs may also be prescribed to help prevent development

DIABETES AND ITS EFFECT ON DIGESTION
Diabetes can affect digestion in a number of ways. If diabetes has caused nerve damage, this can lead to nausea, constipation or diarrhoea.

An alternative cause of disturbed digestion can be the result of diabetes medication

HOW DIABETES AFFECTS THE SKIN
Diabetes affect on the skin is usually a result of its affect on the nerves and circulation which can lead to dry skin, slow healing of cuts, burns and wounds, fungal and bacterial infections and loss of feeling in the foot.

People with diabetes are recommended to have their feet checked at least once a year. The effect of diabetes on the feet is often referred to as diabetic foot

Congrats! cool

Next time when diabetes gets hold of your loved one or relative, feed him with bitter things( e.g vinegar), you must avoid carbohydrate (e.g fufu, garri, indomie etc) at all cost.
The end product of carbohydrate is still sugar wink

In fact, carbohydrate = sugar.

Goodluck.

Frederick Banting thank you o.
Insulin is a very big commodity in countries where citizen healthcare is valued but unfortunately this our country never reach that level.
Imagine how many Nigerian lives can be saved if we utilize the effort of Oga Frederick.

Op thank you

It's just so sad my mum was diagnosed 6months ago....after going for treatment, she was told not to eat some particular food again, she abstained but after she was ok, she has returned to d food.....I told her and advised her against it but she told me she's ok now and can eat d food back...

Having tried for so many times to discourage her what she told me was that if she did not eat all these foods what will she be eating as no money to maintain d food recommended to her and I'm not financially ok now as I'm still a job seeker...

I'm just praying nothing should happen to her cos she's all I got

That's one of the major problems with managing diabetes; finance. One has to be financially bouyant to properly manage diabetes especially when it gets to advanced stage. The worst complications of diabetes is that neuropathy, where there is severe pains in the legs and the person would have to be on pain relief drugs. Bro tell your mum to as much as she can adhere to the diets.
