Diabetes Treatment in Myanmar
Myanmar is a lower-middle income country located in Southeast Asia with an estimated population of 51 million. Diabetes is one of the most common non-communicable diseases and it has become a major public health concern in Myanmar. According to World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, diabetes affects 3.2% of the adult population aged 18 years or older, with a majority of cases being type 2 diabetes. Diabetes can be managed through lifestyle modifications such as diet and physical activity, as well as pharmacological therapy in the form of oral agents or insulin injections.
In Myanmar, the mainstay of diabetes treatment is primarily focused on primary care physicians prescribing medications (oral hypoglycemic agents) and educating patients on lifestyle modifications. Diabetes treatment is provided through both private and public sector health care facilities, with the majority of people using private-sector health services due to limited access to public health care services. In addition, there is limited access to specialized diabetes treatment in rural areas and those living in poverty are at a higher risk of developing diabetes due to poor nutrition and lack of access to health care.

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.
