E/R: GHS alarmed as one in 100 children has type-1 diabetes


Their grandfather has since been taking care of them.

However, Kuami, a graduate of EP senior High School was diagnosed of type 1 diabetes in 2022.

He has since lived on insulin but due to financial difficulties Kuami is unable to afford the medicine.


“In August 2022, I was in shop then I was feeling that I want to urinate so I went to urinate when I came back, I was thirsty then I drink water then few minutes I was hungry then I ate so how the thing was going my grandfather said I should go to hospital .When we went they said it is diabetes so they gave me insulin to use everyday but my grandfather said he doesn’t have money to buy the insulin, one is ghc100 so he stopped buying the insulin. So I need help I want people to help me .My manhood is not working now that is worrying me” Kuami said.


Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin by itself.

For Kuami and other people living with diabetes, access to affordable treatment, including insulin, is critical to their survival.
