Diabetes Treatment in Ghana
Diabetes treatment in Ghana is a growing concern due to the increasing prevalence of diabetes in the country. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death and disability in Ghana, accounting for 7.4 percent of all deaths and 7 percent of disability-adjusted life years lost as reported by World Health Organization (WHO). Diabetes has become an important public health problem in the country, and as such, there is an urgent need to develop effective diabetes treatment strategies.
Recent studies have highlighted the need for improved access to diabetes care and management in Ghana. Diabetes treatment focuses on controlling blood glucose levels, managing cholesterol and hypertension, addressing foot care issues, and providing education about nutrition, exercise, medication management and lifestyle changes. These treatments can help prevent complications of diabetes such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, nerve damage, and amputations. Diabetes can also lead to a decrease in quality of life, as well as increased risk of depression and anxiety. To address the diabetes crisis, there has been an increase in the number of organizations dedicated to providing diabetes treatment and education in Ghana.

Our Patients Are Redefining Success
“MantraCare has been a tremendous help in my journey with diabetes. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes three years ago and it was hard for me to cope with the changes in my lifestyle. However, after consulting MantraCare about my condition, their team of experts gave me comprehensive guidance on how to manage my diet, exercise regimen, and medications. In the three years since I started consulting MantraCare, my condition has been well-managed, with regular checkups that help me to make sure everything is in order. MantraCare also provided me with education about diabetes which was very helpful for understanding the disease better.”

Frequently Asked Questions
When blood sugar or glucose levels are too high, diabetes develops. Insulin is a hormone that aids the movement of glucose from meals into your cells for energy. The body’s production of insulin or its use of insulin might be insufficient at times. Glucose is able to get into cells and remain in the blood as a result. Blood sugar levels rise as a consequence.
There are three primary types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is caused by the immune system’s attack on the cells that manufacture insulin, a hormone that aids in the utilization and storage of glucose. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body’s ability to use insulin is lost. Gestational diabetes is a disease that pregnant women get when their bodies aren’t able to create and utilize insulin properly during pregnancy.
Diabetes is treated by MantraCare with a mobile app intervention, health coach sessions, physician visits, and medicine.
