The Kobe Bryant Health and Fitness
In support of Diabetes awareness
Under the Patronage of His Excellency Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Minister of Culture, Youth and Social Development, Chairman of the General Authority for Youth and Sports Welfare, the action packed Kobe Bryant Health & Fitness Weekend in support of diabetes awareness will be held on the 26th and 27th of September. Diabetes is currently the fastest growing disease in the world. According to the Imperial College of London Diabetes Centre (ICLDC), in the UAE it is estimated that one out of five people aged 20 to 79 are living with diabetes. 1 in 2 people with diabetes are unaware they have it. Since there are few symptoms associated with diabetes, it is important to get tested before it progresses so you can begin to take the proper steps to lead a long, happy life. The great news is that in the vast majority of cases, diabetes can be managed and even prevented by a healthy lifestyle practise - adopting a balanced diet and brisk walk every day.
