Mustafia Sharif Charity

Empowering People to Take Control of Diabetes

One of our missions is to empower individuals to take control of their diabetes through education, support, and guidance. Led by a team of experts, we offer a range of services aimed at raising awareness, providing prevention strategies, and assisting with the management of diabetes. 

“Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a condition where the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin or can’t use the insulin it produces effectively, leading to high blood sugar levels. If left untreated, diabetes can lead to serious health complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and blindness. However, with proper management and lifestyle changes, it is possible to control diabetes and prevent these complications.”

Past Success, Future Initiatives

Having successfully completed projects related to diabetes awareness and management in the past, we are committed to continuing these efforts. By leveraging our expertise and experience, we aim to reach even more individuals in need of support and guidance in managing their diabetes.

Empowering People to Take Control of Diabetes

Executing Our Projects: A Comprehensive Approach

Prevention and Early Detection

We believe that knowledge is power when it comes to diabetes prevention and early detection. Our focus is on educating individuals about healthy lifestyle habits, including proper nutrition, regular physical activity, and weight management, which can help prevent the onset of diabetes. Additionally, we provide information on various screening tests for early detection, such as blood sugar tests, A1C tests, and glucose tolerance tests.

Managing Diabetes Effectively

Managing diabetes requires a comprehensive approach, and our team provides guidance every step of the way. We offer valuable insights into managing blood sugar levels, understanding the different types of diabetes (type 1, type 2, and gestational), and addressing associated health complications. Our goal is to equip individuals with the knowledge and tools they need to effectively manage their diabetes and live a healthy life. 

Tailored Diet Plans and Healthy Recipes

Nutrition plays a crucial role in diabetes management, which is why our nutritionists provide personalised diet plans tailored to the needs of individuals with diabetes. These plans include healthy recipes that promote balanced eating habits and emphasise the importance of consuming fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats.

Promoting Physical Activity

Regular physical activity is essential for maintaining overall health and managing diabetes. Our diabetic specialists offer guidance on suitable physical activities for individuals with diabetes, highlighting the benefits of exercise and providing practical tips for incorporating physical activity into daily life.

Community Outreach Programmes

Our projects extend beyond traditional awareness campaigns to include community outreach programs. Through partnerships with local organisations and healthcare providers, we engage directly with communities to provide targeted support and resources. These programmes often include health screenings, educational workshops, and access to healthcare services, ensuring that individuals receive the support they need in their own neighbourhoods

Online Resources and Virtual Support

Recognising the importance of accessibility, we leverage digital platforms to deliver information and support to a wider audience. Our online resources include educational materials, interactive tools, and virtual support groups, providing individuals with access to valuable resources and a supportive community, regardless of their location or schedule.

Understanding the Impact of Diabetes

Diabetes is a significant public health concern in the UK and Greater Manchester area, with profound implications for individuals and communities. According to recent statistics, diabetes affects approximately 3.9 million people in the UK, including both diagnosed and undiagnosed cases, and an estimated 13.6 million people are at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In Greater Manchester alone, over 250,000 individuals are living with diabetes, representing a significant portion of the population.

The impact of diabetes extends beyond physical health, affecting mental well-being, quality of life, and overall healthcare costs. Individuals with diabetes face increased risks of complications such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, neuropathy, and vision problems. Additionally, the economic burden of diabetes is substantial, with healthcare costs and productivity losses amounting to billions of pounds each year.
