Diabetes Treatment in Zambia

Diabetes is a growing health concern in Zambia, with more than 1.4 million people living with the disease. Despite the increasing prevalence of diabetes, treatment for those affected remains inadequate due to limited resources and access to care. Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires long-term management and treatment to control symptoms and reduce the risk of complications. Diabetes treatment in Zambia typically involves a combination of lifestyle modification, medication, and monitoring.

Lifestyle modifications are important for people with diabetes as they help manage blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of developing further complications. These include healthy eating, regular physical activity and weight management. Regular physical activity is also important for diabetes management; however, due to limited access to exercise facilities or recreational activities, many people with diabetes are unable to exercise.

Medication is also a key component of diabetes treatment, and there are several types of medications available in Zambia that can help manage blood sugar levels. Diabetes medications vary in their effectiveness and side effects, so it is important for patients to discuss the best option for them with their healthcare providers.

Our Patients Are Redefining Success


I was suffering from diabetes for over 3 years and I had tried many treatments to control it, but nothing seemed to work. That’s when I heard about MantraCare in Zambia. After consulting the doctor at the clinic, they prescribed a combination of herbal medicines, diet alteration and exercise regimes that helped me manage my diabetes effectively. Within a few months of treatment, my sugar levels were back to normal and I felt much healthier. I highly recommend MantraCare for anyone suffering from diabetes as their treatments are safe and effective. The doctors here have a lot of experience in this field and take the time to understand your condition before prescribing any treatment. They also provide diet advice and tips on how to reduce your sugar levels naturally. I am very thankful to the team at MantraCare for helping me get my health back on track. Thank you!”

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 Zambia 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).

Yes, diabetes drugs can be prescribed by online doctors at MantraCare. However, if you reside in a state or province where internet prescription is not permitted, we will try to connect you to a local doctor. Alternatively, we also deliver diabetes medication to Zambia.

Some general estimates put the cost of treating type 2 diabetes at around $1,500 per year. In addition to medication and regular checkups, patients with diabetes may need to undergo surgery to remove the pancreas or a gastric bypass operation to reduce stomach size.
