Singapore has one of the world’s highest diabetes-related leg amputations. One out of 9 people, aged 18 to 69, has diabetes now. That’s about 11.3% of the population or more than 400,000 people!

Diabetes is a chronic disease and, if not managed well, can deteriorate steadily to cause devastating complications such as blindness, nerve damage, kidney failure, heart disease and limb amputation. Studies show that about half of patients already have diabetes-related complications at the time of diagnosis. [Taken from THE STRAITS TIMES]
How much does diabetes cost Singapore?

In 2010, Singapore spent more than S$1 billion on diabetes, a figure that’s expected to climb past S$2.5 billion by 2050. 42% of the amount is for medical treatment and the rest for indirect productivity-related losses.

With these grim numbers, the Ministry of Health (MOH) in Singapore has Declared War on Diabetes. Low Carb Singapore™ 2020 will support the MOH in their mission to improve the health of the people in Singapore affected by diabetes and its financial impact on the country’s health care system. This conference seeks to educate on how eating real food in a low-carb ketogenic context has been proven to improve these conditions.

ANH-Intl founder, executive and scientific director, Rob Verkerk PhD, joins a panel of international experts, this conference will support in the fight against diabetes, sharing proven science and methodologies.
