The current diabetes epidemic
Every 6 seconds someone dies of diabetes. More than ½ those are people under the age of 50 (according to International Diabetes Federation 2013 stats). Deaths due to lifestyle diseases like diabetes are the second leading cause of death in the Western Cape. Currently, there is no cure for diabetes, but most type 2 diabetes (approx 85% of all people living with diabetes) can be prevented or delayed through education, medication (if required) and a healthy diet and increased physical activity.

Diabetes SA is the only non-profit, public benefit organisation in South Africa providing a dedicated service for people with diabetes and their families. Diabetes SA aims to empower, encourage and educate the approx. 3 million diagnosed diabetics in South Africa on management of diabetes. We also aim to reach the more than 1 million undiagnosed people with diabetes through ongoing Awareness Campaigns.

Human Science Research Council August 2013, “…South Africa will see a drastic increase in the number of people diagnosed with diabetes over the next five years.”
