Diabetes Treatment in Uganda

Diabetes treatment in Uganda is an ever-evolving field. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the country, with a prevalence rate estimated at 4.7%. To address this epidemic, the Ministry of Health has taken steps to enhance the management of diabetes through various strategic initiatives. 

Diabetes awareness campaigns have also been implemented, focusing on promoting healthy lifestyles and advocating for the prevention of complications. Diabetes self-management education is being rolled out in both public and private health facilities. Through these initiatives, Diabetes treatment in Uganda is becoming increasingly accessible to all citizens. 

Through the joint efforts of the Ministry of Health and organizations, Diabetes care in Uganda is becoming more comprehensive and effective. With an effective Diabetes treatment program in place, it is hoped that more individuals will be able to manage their Diabetes and enjoy healthier lives.

Our Patients Are Redefining Success


I was diagnosed with diabetes and prescribed insulin injections by my local doctor. I was feeling overwhelmed and scared that I would have to take regular injections for the rest of my life. But a friend recommended MantraCare in Uganda, so I decided to give it a try. To my surprise, after just 1 week of following MantraCare’s diabetes treatment program, my blood glucose levels had already gone down significantly. I was amazed! The team at MantraCare is amazing, they provided me with personal attention and guidance throughout the whole process. Every week they would monitor my progress and adjust the treatment according to my needs. They also taught me how to keep my diabetes under control through diet and exercise. I’m so grateful for the help I received from MantraCare and would highly recommend their services to anyone suffering from diabetes. With their help, I now have much more energy and can live a normal life without having to worry about injections or complications! Thank you MantraCare”

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. Our health coaches in Uganda work with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to treat diabetes using a healthy diet, exercise, and medication. Obesity treatment for type 2 diabetes includes weight reduction, healthy eating, regular exercise, blood sugar monitoring (insulin therapy).
