Diabetes in the Arabian Gulf
Diabetes is a disease that is prevalent in today’s society. This is because a lot of the
world’s population is tragically obese. Diabetes is a disease that occurs when sugar in the blood
system is too high. Although glucose is considered the main source of energy within the body,
sometimes glucose remains in the bloodstream too long and does not reach cells within the body
system due to failure of the insulin hormone that helps glucose reach cells. There are two
different types of diabetes. One, Type 1 diabetes, is caused by poor nutrition and a selfindulgent lifestyle. The second, Type 2, is not caused by anything. It is hereditary. It usually
shows up some time during childhood. It is sadly preventable if people should just exercise and
eat healthy. However, that is a hard thing to ask of people these days, with all of the fast food
restaurants and serve-yourself, glass donut cupboards in superstores. Not to mention the fact that
junk food is always cheaper than healthy food. There are things that you can do to combat
diabetes, like eating a healthier diet and exercising a few times a week. There are billions of
people on this planet and sadly, a good amount of them have diabetes. Diabetics has been a
growing problem in various parts of the world, but currently, it is especially a problem in the
Arabian Gulf area. Millions of people in the world are living with diabetes and the people of the
Arabian Gulf are not left out. Diabetes is an ever-growing problem in the Arabian Gulf.
According to a Gulf News Health article, one in ten people in the Gulf States are living
with Type 2 diabetes (Diabetes Growing Rapidly, 2017). That may not seem like a big number,
but when you consider the fact that the Arabian Gulf is home to around 36.8 million people
(Diabetes Growing, 2017), one in ten people having Type 2 diabetes makes a bigger impact.
One of the leading reasons for the growing diabetes rates everywhere, including the Arabian
Gulf, is the increased obesity of the population. The National has an article that states that

diabetes is also a regional problem and that Saudi Arabia is rated in the top ten countries with the
most diabetic population (Five Arabian Gulf countries, 2014). This means that Saudi Arabia is
one of the most at risk countries for diabetes in the entire world. As with the rest of the world’s
population, Saudi Arabia’s diabetes problem is mainly due to obesity and an ill-fitting lifestyle.
The SpringerLink published an article titled Status of the diabetes epidemic in the Kingdom of
Saudi Arabia, 2003, mentioning that they reviewed statistics from the study, Saudi Health
Interview Survey, to see how many people that took the survey had diabetes. The results of the
study were hopeless. The study showed that 1,745,532 Saudis that were aged fifteen years or
older have diabetes and males, older individuals and people that were already diagnosed with
high blood pressure or high cholesterol were more likely to be diabetic (Status of the diabetes
epidemic, 2014). That is a whopping 13.4% of Saudis with diabetes. This statistic alone may
not cause you to lose a night’s sleep, but the fact that diabetes is mostly a preventable disease
should at least cause you some uneasiness. The Qatar Medical Journal mentions a study, where
they looked at things such as people’s BMI’s and waist-sizes to see if they correlated with the
chance of eventually developing diabetes (2014, p 6). The study showed that Arabs, because of
things like their BMI’s and waist-sizes, were more likely to get diabetes than the other races in
the study. Most of these people, in the Arabian Gulf and other parts of the world, with diabetes
would be diabetes-free if they just ate healthier and exercised.
There are two different kinds of diabetes — Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. The
National describes Type 1 diabetes as an autoimmune condition that attacks the pancreas with
autoantibodies, which causes the pancreas to fail (Five American Gulf countries, 2014). Type 1
diabetes affects younger people and, unfortunately, stays with them through their entire lives. It
is something people are born with and it usually shows up in their youth. Type 2 diabetes is a

different type than Type 1 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is brought on by an unhealthy and inactive
