This poster from the International Rescue Committee, presented at the University of Copenhagen (School of Global Health) for UCPH Global Health Day, highlights factors that influence uncontrolled fasting blood sugar levels in a temporary shelter on the Thailand-Myanmar border.

The poster concludes:

  • There was a significant number of patients who were not able to control their blood glucose level.
  • Service providers should highlight the importance of regular follow-up visits to patients.
  • Frontline workers should be monitored and provided technical support to follow the current management guideline to control the blood sugar levels of the patients.
  • As lifestyle changes also play a crucial role in managing diabetes, more studies in the area are needed to explore lifestyle modification practices and their association with
    uncontrolled diabetes.
