AS the Federation joins the rest of the world to recognize November 14th as World Diabetes Day, concerns are being raised over the level of diabetes cases popping up across the Federation.

On the previous day, the St. Kitts Diabetes Association kick started a week of activities to raise awareness about the ailment in the Federation, as Public Relations Officer Dr. Reginald O’Loughlin revealed that there are approximately 3,000 cases on the island of St. Kitts alone.

That is an alarming figure as the Federation is known to have the prevalence of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) leading the causes of death.

Dr. O’Loughlin told the congregation at a church service on Sunday (NOV. 13) that of the 3,000 figure, 250 are being treated at the Joseph N France General Hospital for Kidney Disease.
