Dealing with Diabetes: What German Medical Center's doctors say about the incurable disease
 

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, February 14, 2018:   German Medical Center, a Dubai-based specialized healthcare facility with remarkable staff committed to providing top-notch medical services and ensuring a satisfactory experience for patients, taps into a pool of important information on diabetic health, with diabetes being the most common chronic condition in the UAE.

There are two main kinds of diabetes: type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes. More than 90% of all people with diabetes have type 2. 

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the pancreas cannot make insulin. Everyone with type 1 diabetes requires insulin injections. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas does not make enough insulin or the body does not use insulin properly. People with type 2 diabetes usually have a family history of this condition and are most often overweight. This condition occurs most commonly in people of First Nations descent, Hispanics, and North Americans of African descent.

In Dubai alone, the percentage of persons suffering from diabetes of any kind is 15.2%. The total prevalence of diabetes among Emiratis in Dubai is 19 per cent, while the total of undiagnosed diabetes cases of Emiratis is 11 percent and the rate of those at the pre-diabetic Emiratis is 18.6 per cent.

Dr. Zoumpoulis Meletiadis, MD, Head of Internal Medicine at German Medical Center, said, “Ideally, while there are many steps to control diabetes, there are very few to curb it, and none at all to cure it. Diabetes typ 2, obesity and lack of exercises linked to diabetes are the most common in our region, and for each kind of diabetes, insulin-intake, dietary measures as well as medication are vastly different. An ongoing conversation then about diabetes is important for young adults as well as the elderly to understand how to deal the right way with their condition. Regular checkups, avoidance of sugars and starch, and adherence to the life-long medication cycle are imperative to ensure the health of patients.” 

Specializing in Orthopedics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Urology, General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Preventive Medicine, Physiotherapy and beyond, all within a single, clinically-integrated network, German Medical Center’s medical professionals reform all vital aspects of healthcare for pre-diabetic as well as diabetic patients to receive clinical and critical care.
