Poor diabetics: bitter times and worse times with no sweet respite

Despite ground breaking and earth shaking research worldwide the leaders of the world system are falling short of pennies to be shaken out of their piggy banks to save// the poorest of the poor communities marred by diabetes from snow diving into a bleak era which seems to offer little in the form of appropriate care when compared to those who suffer from the same illness in higher socio economic groups.

Statistics reveal that Over two million people are diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and a further 750,000 have the condition but are unaware that they have it and so at the end of the first decade of the 21st century the nation would be bustling with over three million diabetic patients majority of whom would belong to the poorer sections of society and communities world wide.

A report published recently by Diabetes UK and the all-party parliamentary group for diabetes (APPGD is an eye-opener which scrutinizes the plight of the people living in deprived areas suffering from diabetes today and closely disseminates the links between diabetes which develops later in life(type2) and the socio economic deficiency across UK.

Its appalling to note that Britain’s poorer communities are 2.5 times more likely to develop diabetes (Type 2) and 3.5 times more likely to develop more complications as well simply due to deprivation of appropriate care and financial constraints as compared to the more affluent and higher socio economic groups. They are also very unlikely to receive timely screening tests for crucial health checks like routine blood glucose monitoring and blood pressure readings.

The chief executive of Diabetics UK Douglas Smallwood has opined that a conscious shift in services and attitudes towards deprived sections of society are the only ways to channel positive changes that will ensure the looming cloud over the diabetic patients in the throes of this fatal disease will indeed pass over.

Diabetes UK is urging officials to take up measures to be taken to negate inequalities, including strategies to increase awareness of diabetes to all social groups, revise protocols written by primary care organizations to heed to the needs of diverse groups; and increasing budget geared towards compensating existing inequalities.
