In 2019, there were about 463 million people living with diabetes and this number is predicted to rise to 700 million by 2045. Up to 4.2 million people die from diabetes every year. It is the biggest health issue of the twenty-first century. The recent study in the UK showed that a third (33.2%) of covid-19 deaths were among diabetics.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in women. Every year, 18 million people die from heart disease. Studies involving 2,509 women age 45 to 84 years from different ethnicities (White, Chinese, Black and Hispanic) showed that women who reached menopause before the age of 46 have an increased risk of heart disease, stroke and dementia.
High Blood Sugar Levels trigger inflammation. Chronic inflammation is an autoimmune condition, the same type of condition that triggers alopecia areata. People who suffer from type 1 diabetes are at higher risk of suffering from alopecia areata, a hair loss condition characterised by smooth bald patches on the scalp.
A 20-year study in France involving 3,200 all-healthy participants age 32 to 62, showed that wrinkles on the forehead signalled a higher risk of fatal heart disease. People who have moderate and deep wrinkles on their forehead were 10 times likely to die from heart disease compared to those who have less or no wrinkle.
Heart diseases are the number 1 cause of death globally, including in the US, UK and Singapore. Every year, about 17.9 million people die from heart disease. A study in Australia based on the data collected from 9,206 adults age 20 to 69 showed that Waist to Hip Ratio (WHR) can be used to predict the risk for death from heart disease.
Covid-19 vaccine is not yet widely available. Hardly any covid-19 vaccine has been tested rigorously. No particular medication has been proven to work against coronavirus either. We have to rely on our own immune system to survive covid-19. Find out how to strengthen your immune system to fight off coronavirus.
Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient for the maintenance of healthy nervous system and brain function. Our body also needs this water-soluble vitamin to produce DNA and blood cells.

A strong immune system is crucially important during the current coronavirus pandemic. There isn't yet a vaccine or drug that can prevent or cure coronavirus infection. If we catch Covid-19, we have to rely on our own immune system to recover from the disease. Find out which foods that help boost immune system and mood.
Located further than 7,000 miles away from Wuhan of China where the first case was reported, New York has become the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak. More than 360,000 cases and 28,000 deaths have been recorded there. Like with most other countries, the United States is not fully prepared for the outbreak.
Clinical trials in 10 hospitals in China showed that Chloroquine reduces the severity of Covid-19 pneumonia and shortens the infection period. However, Chloroquine may cause various side effects such as skin rash, diarrhea, liver damage, muscle damage, vision loss, low blood cell levels, seizures and premature deaths.
