VIDEO: Drowning in Sugar
On World Diabetes Day, South Africans do not have much to celebrate. For Melanie Pandoor, a recent diabetic amputee, this rings true.
With 10,000 new diabetes cases diagnosed every month, we are drowning in sugar – one of the most accessible, affordable and addictive of foods. This is Melanie’s story of losing her leg to diabetes, narrated by Dr Luvhengo, the Head of Surgery at Charlotte Maxeke Hospital. This, he says, is a health crisis worse than the HIV epidemic.
