Discover Health Diabetes Management and Control Workshop at Londa Hotel

Diabetes Management and Control Workshop at Londa Hotel

There is a lot of conflicting and often confusing information regarding diabetes and related issues but it is a fact that 1 in 10 of today’s population in the UK is either diabetic or pre-diabetic. Here in Cyprus, the figures are actually worse. Although not always the case, many diabetics also have high blood pressure and while not necessarily obese, are often overweight.

Diabetes affects our bodies in many ways including our immune system. Diabetes can cause serious problems with feet, eyes, teeth, even our bones and mental health. Diabetes can cause other symptoms including fatigue and sleeplessness. It can also affect so many aspects of our lives at home, work and socially and because diabetes symptoms generally build-up over time, many things go unnoticed until it becomes much more serious.

There are now confirmed links between diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity, which can lead to stroke, pancreatic and liver cancer. Both Type 1 and 2 diabetes are one of the biggest health concerns in globally.
