An Introduction to Diabetes

Diabetes occurs when our body is unable to produce enough insulin or does not use insulin effectively. This results in high glucose levels, as insulin is the hormone that helps us turn blood glucose into energy. While diabetes itself is not life-threatening, it can lead to various health complications if not well-managed.

For most of us, our blood glucose levels fall between the healthy range of 4 mmol/l to 7.8 mmol/l. Having a blood glucose level higher than 11mmol/l is a possible indication of diabetes.

1 in 9 Singaporeans have Diabetes

Seniors, in particular, are more prone to diabetes. In fact, 30% of Singaporeans above the age of 60 are diabetic.

Proper diabetes management is important to prevent further health complication. Having a high-than-normal glucose level over a prolonged period of time can cause irreversible damage to our eyes, kidneys, nerves and heart. Diabetes may also cause wounds to heal more slowly, and amputations are common. On average, public hospitals in Singapore carry out 4 diabetes-related amputations a day, which is concerning.

Managing Diabetes at Home

First and foremost, find out your diabetic risk. 1 in 3 Singaporeans with diabetes is actually unaware of their condition.

In general, a healthy lifestyle can help us regulate our blood glucose levels. Maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, watching your diet and taking medication prescribed to you are some ways to get started. Regular foot care is also important to protect them from infection and other complications.
