The Definition

Diabetes, also know as diabetes mellitus, is a non-communicable disease, which means it is not infectious and cannot be passed on to another person. Diabetes is a group of metabolic disorders in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. Symptoms include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger. If left untreated, diabetes can cause many complications, including hypoglycaemia, heart disease, strokes, blindness and loss of limbs. Periodic assessment, timely interventions and regular monitoring for these complications are vital. There are three main types of diabetes:
  1. Type 1 diabetes, formerly known as insulin-dependent, juvenile or childhood-onset diabetes, is characterised by deficient insulin production and requires the daily administration of insulin. The causes of Type 1 diabetes are neither known nor currently preventable.
  2. Type 2 diabetes, formerly known as non-insulin-dependent or adult-onset diabetes, is the most widespread form of the disease and is primarily due to excess body weight and physical inactivity. Until recently, this type of diabetes was seen only in adults; however, it now also occurs frequently in children.
  3. Gestational Diabetes occurs when pregnant women without a previous history of diabetes develop high blood sugar levels.

In addition, pre-diabetics describes a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, although not high enough to be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Through healthy lifestyle options, pre-diabetics can reduce their risk of developing diabetes.

The Stage

This special issue Best Practice Report focuses on some of the incredible efforts and successes from around the world in the field of preventive health management and wellness initiatives to combat diabetes. It is estimated that 425 million adults are afflicted with diabetes worldwide with someone dying from diabetes every six seconds. With such a serious health issue, it is imperative that employers inform their employees about the symptoms, risk factors, and complications of this dangerous disease. Incorporating diabetes awareness into a wellness program will help employees afflicted with this disease receive the support they need to improve their wellbeing. This report will be valuable for anyone involved in developing proactive health-related policies and prevention strategies. The report aims to assist individuals, employers, societies and nations to address the detrimental effects of diabetes.
