UAE Ministry of Health initiative services for diabetics
Initiative for diabetic care and treatment from the UAE Ministry of Health, It was announced that examination services would be provided through medical centers located throughout the country. Additionally, it stated that it would organize visits to employees of both the public and private sectors and provide the examination service at their places of employment. During the first one hundred days of the campaign, approximately 5,000 people would be examined at their places of employment. The purpose of the campaign, which will run for a full calendar year, is to immediately after the examination disseminate information regarding treatment options and health advice that may be followed to reduce the likelihood of developing diabetes in those populations most likely to be affected by the condition. In order to provide its services to the people living in the Emirates, a collaborative effort between the health authorities and a large number of businesses in the private sector has been conducting tours of workplaces in both the public and private sectors. These tours involve the provision of free medical examinations. In addition to computerized questionnaires to evaluate the risk of infection, HbA1c tests will be administered to individuals whose questionnaires indicate an elevated risk of acquiring diabetes or its prediabetes. This streamlined strategy involves keeping a precise record of each patient's data, as well as offering continual follow-up care and medical consultations after three and six months have passed. It also aims to educate individuals and provide support for them through the hotline (800-DIABEAT), which provides follow-up services and answers to inquiries for all individuals who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes or diabetes during the campaign. This is done with the intention of treating pre-diabetes and preventing it from developing into an actual disease. In addition to assisting diabetics in maintaining adequate control of their condition.
