Hospitals act on diabetes-related eye conditions

By Cai Wenjun


Diabetes is becoming an increasing health issue in China, with the rate of the disease among the elderly at 20 percent, doctors revealed on Saturday, World Diabetes Day.


Diabetes-related problems, particularly eye complications, are especially concerning.


A program offering training in diabetic retinopathy, a major eye complication of diabetes, for grassroots medical facilities was launched in Wuhan, Hubei Province, on Saturday.


Grassroots healthcare professionals in 16 cities will receive training in the diagnosis and treatment of diabetic retinopathy.
