Diabetes and Vision Loss

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.

Lions and Diabetes Awareness

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.

Joining Forces to Fight Diabetes

Lions work with local community partners and national diabetes associations to promote diabetes education and awareness throughout the year.  The Lions Clubs International Foundation’s Board of Trustees approved the LCIF Diabetes grant DIA15636/306-A1 to support the Lions District 306A1 Project on “diabetes screening, awareness, and education activities in Western and Southern Sri Lanka.” The Project aims to empower the community, leading to development of healthy behaviour among communities in preventing diabetes.

But I think one point that should be made is that if you professional thesis writing service are not the publisher of record, you haven`t actually self-published.
