WELCOME TO THE DIABETIC SOCIETY OF SINGAPORE!

Diabetes mellitus, commonly referred to as diabetes, is a long-term illness characterised by a high sugar (or glucose) level in the blood. Someone with diabetes is either producing too little insulin or is unable to respond well to the insulin produced.

In Singapore, one out of 9 people aged 18 to 69 has diabetes. That’s about 11.3% of our population or more than 400,000 people!

Diabetes is a chronic disease and, if not managed well, can deteriorate steadily to cause devastating complications such as blindness, nerve damage, kidney failure, heart disease and limb amputation. Studies show that about half of patients already have diabetes-related complications at the time of diagnosis.

PREVENTION & EARLY DETECTION are key to stemming the rise of diabetes.

The Diabetic Society of Singapore gratefully accepts donations of any amount to help fight diabetes. All donations are tax exempted. click here
