Experts Find Diabetes As The Global Epidemic of The 21st Century

During the 2nd Summit, the experts said that diabetics cannot regulate their levels, which leads to organ and limb damage.

These uncontrolled glucose levels cause diseases in the limbs that often end with total amputation, they explained.

Worldwide, 300 million people are currently living with diabetes, and this figure is expected to increase unless there is a global prevention plan, Andrew Bolton, vice president of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, told reporters yesterday.

“Diabetes is the global epidemic of the 21st century, and this is the first time that a noncommunicable disease is being classified as a major epidemic by the World Health Organization,” he said.

He stressed the need for governments, the media and individuals around the world to adopt a preventative approach that aims at changing lifestyles before diabetes develops.

He noted that diabetes is a leading cause of cardiovascular disorders and diseases of the nervous system.

Around three million Jordanians are expected to be affected by diabetes in 2050 unless serious steps are taken, National Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Genetics Director General Kamel Ajlouni said in a previous statement.
