The World Health Organization estimates that over 422 million people worldwide have diabetes, a growing world epidemic that is expected to affect over 642 million by 2040.
People with diabetes are at risk of losing sight due to diabetes eye disease. It is the leading cause of new-onset blindness in many countries. All people with diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2, are at risk. That’s why everyone with diabetes should get a comprehensive dilated eye exam, at least once a year.
Diabetes can lead to other possible complications, including heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, leg amputation, and nerve damage. In pregnancy, poorly controlled diabetes increases the risk of fetal death and other complications.
With these statistics and concerns in mind, Lions have taken action through the Diabetes program. Our work supports diabetes awareness, education, prevention, detection, control, and research. Lions work with local community partners and national diabetes associations to promote diabetes education and awareness throughout the year. We also commemorate World Diabetes Day, an annual campaign led by the International Diabetes Federation on November 14th. Lions Clubs all around our District are promoting this initiative. Remember to wear blue that day.
Organizations that support Lions in their efforts include: The World Health Organization, the Diabetes Education and Camping Association, and the International Diabetes Federation.
