2013: EVERY 20 SECONDS THERE IS A SURGICAL AMPUTATION.
2014: EVERY 30 MINUTES THERE IS A LOSS OF LIMB DUE TO LANDMINES
Diabetes is a truly dreadful disease. It starts off slowly, imperceptibly. Symptoms creep in gradually, not affecting us too much if not diagnosed by a medical practitioner. In fact, many people live with diabetes without realising that they already have it.
A destructive life-style, even if not realised, is probably the main cause. Too much sugar, obesity, smoking, too much alcohol etc. Of course there is, like with all ailments and diseases, a genetic pre-disposition: One person can get away with much more abuse before the symptoms show up than another person. But that’s a gamble people would not take if sufficiently informed.
Diabetes itself is already a difficult ailment to control, but its ugly relatives in the form of kidney, pancreas, eyesight, hearing impairment etc that may eventually result in “dark legs”, open wounds and neuropathy with lots of pain are much worse than being a diabetic in the initial stages.
The fundamental cause in the body is a poor blood circulatory system and many organs and functions are impaired because of lack of blood, ie oxygen. In fact, wherever micro-circulation is important in the body (answer: everywhere!) such ailments can “pop out”. Not very medically expressed, but in the end it is no fun and needs no medical terminology as our normal life slips away dangerously.
More often than not it ends in the amputation of an affected limb. Imagine the implications.
