How Can I Support The Campaign To Stop Diabetes?

Question

If you can count 1 to 7, then you can stop diabetes. Whether you want to — advocate, get walking, get riding, volunteer, or donate, your involvement brings us one day closer to a world without diabetes. So act now.

Diabetes is a serious chronic condition that impacts the body’s ability to produce or use insulin, a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels.

Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition, where the body does not produce insulin. Whilst there is no cure and it cannot be prevented, early detection, treatment and lifestyle modifications can help both living with the condition and preventing life threatening complications and hospitalisation.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes, unlike type 1, is associated with lifestyle risk factors. Over 85% of all cases of diabetes are type 2.

With type 2 diabetes, the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin, or it resists insulin. Symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, hunger, fatigue and blurred vision. In some cases, there may be no symptoms.

Many people with type 2 diabetes are unaware of their condition and remain undiagnosed. Early detection and monitoring can allow type 2 diabetes to be managed through lifestyle modification and can slow the progression of complications.

Gestational Diabetes

Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy but usually disappears once the baby is born. Gestational diabetes impacts both mother and child and requires close monitoring and treatment to prevent complications. Women diagnosed with gestational diabetes are 50% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes at a later stage.
