Donate to Diabetes Malaysia

As a non-profit organisation, Diabetes Malaysia depends very much on the compassion and generosity of the Companies, Organisations and members of the public to fund its various activities. The  successful  implementation  of  these  activities  will  raise public awareness on diabetes and help the people with diabetes to effectively manage the disease and prevent people from getting the disease in the long term  with a view to reduce  the burden on  the healthcare system in the country.

We appeal to the goodwill and generosity of the public at large to contribute towards DM’s activities and cause.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease where the body does  not  produce or does  not  use  insulin effectively,  resulting in having  too  much sugar ( glucose ) in the blood. Over time this high blood glucose level can give rise to serious complications, such as:

 

a)  People with diabetes are 3 to 5 times more at risk of having heart attacks and stroke
b)  Diabetes is the leading cause of patients requiring dialysis in Malaysia. Some 54 % of kidney disease (nephropathy) patients are people with diabetes.
c)  Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness (retinopathy) in the world.
d)  Diabetes can damage the nerves (neuropathy), leading to numbness of hands and feet.
e)  Some 25 % of people with diabetes will develop foot problems and risk limb amputations.
f)   Diabetes can lead to erectile dysfunction.
g) People with diabetes are prone to fungal skin infections.

 

It has been reported that one in five adult Malaysians (above 30 years old) suffers from diabetes. Diabetes is a silent killer. Currently there is no cure for diabetes. The good news is that diabetes can be controlled or delayed, while preventing many of the complications.
