The problem of diabetes in Ukraine
The prevalence of diabetes throughout the world and in Ukraine is rapidly and steadily increasing. Each day of a person with diabetes is a constant balancing act between sugar, acetone, dangerous risks of coma and threats of heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and limb amputation, etc.
At the same time, there were always interruptions in the supply of high-quality insulin, there were no assistance programs for people with diabetes, there was no provision of insulin pumps and blood glucose monitoring systems, and payments for state social assistance reached an extremely low level. Since the full-scale invasion of Russia, all these problems have increased and multiplied, becoming critical.To date, there are no accurate data on the number of patients in Ukraine, because statistics have not been kept for five years. Based on how quickly the number of patients is increasing all over the world, it can be noted that the number reaches several million Ukrainians. In addition, the stress factor experienced by our citizens in the last six months is one of the main factors in the occurrence of diabetes.
Mission and goals
The mission of ORC is to teach people with diabetes to live a full life and to explain to them that diabetes is not a sentence, but a way of life. When receiving visitors, the Center pursues the following goals:
- 1. To teach a person with diabetes to choose the correct dose of insulin in everyday life and during physical activity.
- 2. Help establish control and balance in the life of a diabetic, which will help reduce the risk of life-threatening side effects of the disease.
- 3. Psychological rehabilitation: individual therapy, work on group therapy, support of the diabetic community, which will be a psychological support for patients and their relatives.
The treatment facility is located in the foothills of the Tatras in Slovakia, a place with clean mountain air and amazing scenery. In the middle of protected forests, mountain rivers, in a wide valley, there is more than 16,000 m2 of the territory of the Center. Near the suburb of Lyubietov and the administrative center of Banska Bystrytsia. A favorable location in combination with a wide range of wellness procedures will make the rehabilitation of guests as effective as possible.
