Tree Top Hospital introduces Diabetes Screening Package. Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces.

Diabetes treatment from the start can protect against or slow the progression of health problems affecting the eyes, kidneys, heart, and feet. It is important to screen for diabetes; as early screening will allow for early treatment; prevention is better than cure.

The condition may not present any obvious symptoms which does not rule out the possibility of having the condition. Diabetes is a highly prevalent disease in the Maldives and screening for diabetes is essential for high risk groups.

Additionally, the package is also recommended for high-risk groups, to encourage prevention of diabetes and ensure that treatment is started at the earliest stage. High-risk group includes:

·         People with a family history of diabetes

·         People over the age of 35

·         People with a history of latent diabetes indicators

·         People with high blood pressure
