DIABETES MELLITUS

Diabetes mellitus, abbreviated as DM and commonly referred to as just diabetes, is currently one of the gravest lifestyle diseases. Just in the Czech Republic alone, there are approximately 900,000 diabetes patients.

Even though diabetes cannot be completely cured, it is possible to rectify it quite effectively, even to a level where the patient need not feel the effects of the disease or of its health complications for many years to come.

And the spa treatment has this objective - to alleviate the manifestations of the disease while also postponing any health complications associated with diabetes (damage to the kidneys, eyes, nerves, or increased morbidity).

The primary weapon to fight diabetes are various lifestyle measures, and thus the entire stay is conceived as therapeutic on the one hand, where the patient undergoes a whole range of procedures, and educational on the other, where the patient discovers all details about the disease itself and is given instructions on how to alleviate diabetes in everyday life to the maximum degree.
