Happy World Health Day!



Hello Brave People! Today is World Health Day, presented to us by the World Health Organization! The main focus this year is educate people about diabetes prevention. I thought I would share a few facts:



Key facts

  1. The number of people with diabetes has risen from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014.
  2. The global prevalence of diabetes* among adults over 18 years of age has risen from 4.7% in 1980 to 8.5% in 2014.
  3. Diabetes prevalence has been rising more rapidly in middle- and low-income countries.
  4. Diabetes is a major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke and lower limb amputation.
  5. In 2012, an estimated 1.5 million deaths were directly caused by diabetes and another 2.2 million deaths were attributable to high blood glucose**.
  6. Almost half of all deaths attributable to high blood glucose occur before the age of 70 years. WHO projects that diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of death in 2030.
  7. Healthy diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a normal body weight and avoiding tobacco use are ways to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.
  8. Diabetes can be treated and its consequences avoided or delayed with diet, physical activity, medication and regular screening and treatment for complications.

I am always saying (almost weekly on this blog) that in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, regular movement and good food is key! 

Wishing everyone and their families great health and spirits, have a fantastic rest of the week!

  9. I agree with the point that good food is the key to healthy life. However I was hoping to find facts related to “health”, instead all I found were diabetes-related facts. I was hoping it would give me ideas about Mental Health Nursing Dissertation Topics for my dissertation, but sadly it didn’t.
