Project Description :
Diabetes and Vision Loss:
People with diabetes are at risk of losing sight due to diabetes eye disease. It is the leading cause of new-onset blindness in many countries. Diabetes can lead to other possible complications, including heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, leg amputation, and nerve damage. In pregnancy, poorly controlled diabetes increases the risk of fetal death and other complications. World Walk To Stop Diabetes is the annual signature event organised by Lions Club of Mentakab since year 2012 in conjunction of Lions World Diabetes Day, an annual campaign led by the International Diabetes Federation on November 14 with the purpose of Raising Diabetes Awareness and Preserving Sight.
