Barbados has witnessed increased numbers of persons suffering from lifestyle disease such as diabetes, to the extent that it is known as the amputation capital of the world. Studies have indicated that Barbados spends approximately 5% of its gross domestic product on the treatment of diabetes and hypertension which are both directly linked to obesity.
