Dubai Tests Residents For Diabetes With A New Screening Machines

A new screening machine, non-invasive method, is being used to screen thousand of Dubai residents for diabetes, according to the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), which hopes to completely implement the screening within a year at 13 public health centers. The results of the population sample will be released in the International Diabetes Conference in Dubai next year. The new screening method doesn’t require patients to fast beforehand; it can also detect pre-diabetic patients who are at a high risk of contracting diabetes.27-5-03

The UAE campaign, which is under the patronage of Shaikh Majid Bin Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Culture, aims to limit the number of people who develop Type 2 diabetes, which is mainly caused by an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle and to empower people with knowledge about their condition, according to DHA managing director Qadi Al Murooshid. “Early detection can effectively help manage the disease,” Al Murooshid said. Dr Mohammad Farghaly, DHA acute and chronic unit head noted that “People with pre-diabetic condition have a 61 per cent chance of not developing diabetes if they are caught early and if they change their lifestyle.”
