Diabetes mellitus is a disease characterized by elevated blood sugar as a result of defects in the production and/or action of insulin, one of the hormones responsible for regulating blood sugar. It is one of the most common non-communicable diseases in the world and is the fourth or fifth leading cause of death amongst this group of diseases. It can often remain undetected in the early stages as most people will not have any symptoms. This makes it one of the most challenging health problems of the 21st century.

The elderly population in our society is one of the most vulnerable demographic in the world of health care, mainly because of low immunity, limited access to health care insurance, limited or non-existent access to long-term care insurance and/or reduced quality of life. This age group is abandoned and not for at all in some societies.

The elderly population has continued to increase dramatically over the years largely due to reduction in fertility rate and declining mortality rate. A trend that is predicted to increase in the next few years. The continual increase in the elderly population in our dear country, Nigeria,signifies that there will be a greater need for health care services to be provided to the elderly, notably long-term care services.

This increased need has placed the elderly in a vulnerable position, which Newgate Medical Service Limited is eager to reverse. This package is a premium based arrangement at a reasonable cost that will be of great value to subscribers.
