Diabetes is the number one killer disease in the world.
Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder.
Diabetes is found in people above 40 years of age and about 90-95% of people with diabetes are suffering from Type 2 diabetes.
According to WHO, 422 million people in the world have diabetes and this is most prevalent in low- and middle-income countries. The global prevalence of diabetes amongst adults is about 8.5% in 2014.
Diabetes is the major cause of blindness, kidney failure, heart attacks, stroke, and lower limb amputation. In 2016, 1.6 million deaths were attributed to diabetes and diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death 2016.
Diabetes is a chronic, metabolic disease characterized by elevated levels of blood sugar leading to damage to the various organs of the body such as the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. The most common is type 2 diabetes, prevalent in adults. Type 2 Diabetes is a result of the body’s resistance to insulin or the body not making enough insulin.
For the past three decades, there is a high incidence of type 2 diabetes in all countries and across all income levels. Type 1 diabetes is equally known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes. It is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin by itself.
Insulin deficiency leads to Type 1 diabetes while insulin resistance leads to Type 2 diabetes. And Type 2 diabetes occurs in 95% of diabetes patients.
Complications of diabetes
Diabetes of all types can lead to complications in many parts of the body. This can increase the overall risk of dying prematurely. Possible complications include kidney failure, leg amputation, vision loss, and nerve damage.
Adults with diabetes also have a two- to three-fold increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. In pregnancy, poorly controlled diabetes increases the risk of fetal death and other complications.
These symptoms are seen in millions of cases around the world. Nearly 3% of global blindness can be linked to diabetic retinopathy, occurring as a result of long-term accumulated damage to the blood vessels in the retina.
Diabetes is also among the leading causes of kidney failure. Reduced blood flow and nerve damage in the feet caused by diabetes can lead to foot ulcers, and the associated infections and complications can lead to limb amputation, as well as severe and life-long health problems.
Diabetes can come as hyperglycemia (raised blood sugar) or hypoglycemia(depressed blood sugar). When the blood sugar is raised consistently, it is a dangerous sign which can lead to damage to the body’s organs. Also, hypoglycemia is also a major concern as it can lead to a hypoglycemia crisis putting life in danger.
Diabetes can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and nerves. People with diabetes have an increased risk of heart attacks and strokes. Diabetes with neuropathy which reduces blood flow in the feet heightens the incidence of foot ulcers, infection, and limb amputation. Diabetic retinopathy equally causes eye blindness accounting for 2.6% of global blindness.
It is usually good to regularly check the blood sugar intermittently.
Health Interventions to control diabetes
- Control of blood sugar. Type 1 diabetes mostly requires insulin while type 2 is usually treated with oral medications:
- Control of blood pressure
- good care of the feet/limbs.
- Control of cholesterol
