Diet Care Flags Kuwait’s Health Issues

, the leading provider of health and nutritional food and weight management programs, revealed yesterday that the health situation in Kuwait is dire and needs a collaborative effort in the industry to tackle it, during the (International Health and Racquets Sportsclub Association) Kuwait Mini-Conference held at Al Corniche Club.

Diet Care uncovered its recent joint research initiative with Taiba Hospital on the community’s health statuses extending to the last six months for over 40 of Kuwait’s and region’s leading health and fitness experts and managers. To this date, 2278 free testings and consultations were provided to spread nutritional awareness and better understanding on individual health statuses and personal needs of the Kuwaiti community. Diet Care announced that out of those tested, 28% showed high blood sugar levels and 33% had high cholesterol levels.

Diet Care’s Operations Manager, Sami Al Bader said: “Health research and numbers based on individual and actual cases in Kuwait have not existed for the past few years. To better provide our members with the best services, we believe it’s important to understand what is going on at ground zero, that’s why we have made it our responsibility to embark on research and share it with our health and fitness peers at IHRSA’s Mini-conference.”

The World Health Organization stated that 80 per cent of Kuwait is overweight and 1 out of 4 people suffer from diabetes or its complications. According to latest data by the British Broadcasting Corporation, Kuwait ranks as one of the top countries in the world with the highest obesity rate in line with Argentina, The United States, and Greece. Although other countries suffer from obesity as a result to the unavailability of inexpensive nutritious food, Kuwait does not follow this trend.

Al Bader added: “In Kuwait, outings are mainly limited to eating out at chain restaurant and fast food stores, which is damaging to Kuwait’s health and lifestyle. However, the options for healthy, nutritious, and inexpensive food are available and it is our industry’s role to bring it to the community’s attention and take the necessary steps to tackle it. That is why we’ve invested in updating the health data in Kuwait and have shared it with the best of our health and fitness peers at Al Corniche.”

Diet Care has severed close to 9000 of its members since the inception of its clinical offices in 2005, achieving an average weight-loss goal of 6 kilograms a month. Diet Care also has its own microbiology lab to check the quality of its food, making it the only hospital caterer and sole health provider accredited by the Arab Center for Nutrition.
