CENIGENT to fight prevalence of chronic diseases in the UAE

Published November 18th, 2009 - 02:54 GMT

The UAE is on its path to becoming a nation of citizens plagued by chronic diseases. Recent studies show that one in four Emiratis has diabetes in contrast with the world average of 5%. The World Health Organisation has also predicted that diabetes deaths will increase by more than 50% in the next 10 years if no preventive measures are taken.

Meanwhile, osteoporosis, a bone-weakening disorder, affects 70% of women over 60 in the GCC. But even with the higher prevalence of these diseases, fewer residents are interested in tackling these life-threatening conditions, with 42% of women putting staying slim as their top health concern.

In light of this, CENIGENT Health Enhancement Medical Institute, a US-based medical facility, is taking steps to provide UAE residents the opportunity to maintain optimum health even as they age with groundbreaking, personalised medical programmes which follow a new “systems and genetic-based” medical approach. The innovation of the institute's programmes has garnered extensive support from the medical community in the US.
