Scotland is witnessing a significant rise in the number of people, who have been suffering from Type 2 diabetes. If reports are to be believed then number of diabetes patients living in Scotland has doubled in last decade.
It is very important that people should know about the disease, so they can live long as well as can have satisfying lives. Considering all the factors, the government has decided to organize a national level conference "Diabetes: overcoming hurdles, achieving success".
The event will be held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in Glasgow this week. It has been found that 3,000 experts across the UK will be attending the event. They will be sharing their views about diabetes as well as will be giving some tips to remain diabetes proof.
Some latest ground-breaking diabetes research and modern treatment ways to treat diabetes will also be discussed at the conference. In addition, a roadshow named as Diabetes Healthy Lifestyle roadshow, has been designed, which will take place at Diabetes Healthy Lifestyle roadshow.
The main aim of roadshow is to make people realize that diabetes can happen to anybody who leads sedentary life and has no control on diet. It can also happen to those, who have history of diabetes and can cause severe health problems.
The most shocking part of the story is that there are more than 50,000 people, who have been living with diabetes, but they are unaware of their condition. In order to make people aware about the early detection and treatment, the rally has been organized.
David Dunstan, who is a Professor at Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne, Australia, recommended that 20 minutes walk a day is crucial for health. Continuous sitting restricts body to utilize body glucose level.
