First National Diabetes Day, organized by the All-Ducéere

Posted in health


November 12, 2018 will be the first edition of the National Day of Diabetes. Alliance de Kerr has the opportunity to start its campaign in 2019, which will also have the theme LE DIABETE.

The disease, which affects more than 4.5 million people in France and almost 450 million people worldwide, or 1 in 11 people, is becoming more common. According to WHO, the number of diabetics in the world has increased by 4 in 30 years.
At this stage, you can even say that diabetes can be seen as a growing global epidemic.
Hence, this national mobilization to fight and warn the French about the seriousness of the situation in the face of this insidious and silent disease, from which more than a million people in France do not even know how to influence it. Indeed, due to the lack of visible signs, too many people unconsciously suffer from the most common type 2 diabetes (diabetes, fat or maturity). Metabolic disorders characterized by chronic excess blood sugar (hyperglycemia). In addition, if the disease was not diagnosed or detected on time, diabetes can lead to vision problems or blindness, stroke and cardiovascular diseases, renal failure.
Alliance du Coeur also wants to take advantage of this national mobilization to emphasize that more than one diabetic of the two also suffer from cardiovascular diseases. Since the risk factors for these diseases are closely related, cardiac patients are particularly susceptible. Thus, it is again necessary to prompt the population to get tested and learn about the disease and its complications.

Diabetes is a disorder of the absorption, consumption and storage of sugar coming from food. This leads to high blood sugar levels (blood sugar levels): this is called hyperglycemia. Food consists of lipids (fats), proteins (animal or vegetable proteins) and carbohydrates (sugar, starchy foods). They provide most of the energy the body needs to function. When you eat, your blood sugar rises. The pancreas detects an increase in blood glucose and secretes insulin. It works like a key, it allows glucose to enter the cells of the body. Then the blood glucose level decreases. Another hormone, glucagon *, is used to release glucose stored in the liver, out of a meal, during a drop in energy or a decrease in blood sugar levels. It is the balance of these hormones that maintains stable blood sugar levels in the body. In the case of diabetes, this regulatory system does not work.

Patients with cardiovascular diseases deal with three different types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes (lean diabetes) of genetic origin. Appears in childhood, adolescence, or up to 30 years (not obese). For these patients, specialized pancreatic cells are destroyed by the immune system and no longer produce insulin. People with diabetes are called "insulin-dependent." Type 2 diabetes (diabetes mellitus or diabetes mellitus) is a metabolic disorder characterized by a chronic excess of blood sugar (hyperglycemia), and is the most common type 2 diabetes that requires regular monitoring and treatment. adapted to avoid complications Finally, diabetes during pregnancy is a major complication for pregnant women with diabetes, but is well controlled through proper monitoring
