Diabetes Prevention and Control Program

The South Asian community has high prevalence of diabetes. The impact for this group is seven times higher than the White population in our service area. The risk factors are genetic, lack of physical activity, different dietary pattern, stressful environment and cultural factors. Ibn Sina Foundation believes that people with diabetes can enjoy a healthy life if they catch the problem early enough and manage it properly with an appropriate lifestyles, that include but not limited to-healthy meals and plenty of exercises. This special diabetic population share the potential dangers which are commonly seen in the cases of untreated/inappropriately managed diabetic patients, which include but not limited to: heart disease, leg amputation, kidney failure, blindness, and stroke.

Ibn Sina’s diabetes prevention and control program’s goals are to (1) increase early identification of those at high-risk for developing diabetes, to provide education, and promote behavioral changes, that prevent development of these complications; (2) increase early diagnosis of those with diabetes, to provide education and support, in order to help these patients to manage their disease conditions; and (3) to educate health care providers to promote quality diabetes care in the community.
