Diabetes patients nowadays live longer and healthier’, study

At a forum entitled ‘Gaps and Opportunities’, Dr Richard Jackson, Director of Medical Affairs at Joslin Diabetes Center (part of Harvard Medical School in Boston) at his lecture conducted at the Dasman Diabetes Center recently, was accompanied by Associate Director-Clinical Education Program, Dr Elaine Sullivan and spoke about Diabetes saying “diabetes is a growing epidemic that needs to be managed appropriately in order to prevent and control the spread of the deadly disease. The number could double by 2030, they stressed.”

According to studies, Diabetes is the single-most expensive health problem in urban areas. The number could double in 2030 from 170 million to 370 million,” said Dr Jackson. In Kuwait, at least (10% of its population) suffers from the disease. Type 2 and 3 diabetes is so common in Kuwait. Diabetes Center has really worked hard to make some contributions and medical breakthrough for those suffering from diabetes all over the world and managed the disease accordingly, which led to the fact that people with diabetes actually live longer and healthier. The major problem however rests in the fact that many people do not have enough time to manage diabetes, added to the many choices (on how to handle it) including completing priorities and lack of self efficiency are major obstacles. “We all need to make better food choices. I think the problem in Kuwait is the lack of dieticians. I was informed that you have a few dieticians in Kuwait. Dieticians are important to help make proper, better food choices,” said Dr Sullivan as she stressed on the importance of proper food intake as well as performing exercises to manage diabetes. She also suggested improving physical fitness by jogging or running every day. “Education is a lifelong process and it’s important to help patients be informed on the decisions and solve their day to day problems as health care providers cannot make patients do something he/she is not willing to do,” she also mentioned.
