This holiday celebrated this year's World Diabetes Day under the theme "Diabetes Impact on Every Family", which gave the Ministry of Health an opportunity to reveal the figures associated with this disease. The statement states that about 2 million people aged 18 and over in Morocco are diabetes. Even worse, 50% do not know their illness. In addition, the number of diabetic children is estimated at more than 15,000. In the said statement, the Ministry's senior ministry also emphasized that "more than 823,000 diabetes patients are taking care of primary health care facilities".
For the purchase of insulin and oral antidiabetic medicines, Anas Doukkali and his department have an annual budget of approximately 156.7 million dirhams in their hands. In addition, a budget of 15 million DH is earmarked for the purchase of medical-technical equipment and reagents to ensure diabetes examination and metabolic monitoring of diabetics. In addition, according to the annual report of the National Health Insurance Agency (ANAM) in 2016, 48% of all expenditure was caused by a long-term illness (ALD). Diabetes accounts for 11% of these costs.
While on this side of the Mediterranean it is estimated that estimates are in the rest of the world, efforts are also geared towards better perception of diabetes as a search for innovative tools to make life easier for the victim of this incurable disease. First, we will focus Washington Medical School in St. Louis (USA), where researchers estimated that the new case of diabetes in seven today is due to the contamination of the world. air. This study, published in The Lancet Planetary Health in June last year, also shows that the most affected developing countries. This includes "the current levels of release of pollutants into the atmosphere that are allowed in the remaining developing countries and need to be increased. Evidence suggests that these current levels are still not healthy enough and need to be reduced," says Professor of Medicine Ziyad Al-Aly in the statement.
Then, in Sweden, the current classification of diabetes, due to the reaction of Scandinavian scientists. They think it's insufficient. They would not have two types of diabetes, but five. This Swedish study, aimed at improving treatment by experts, classifies the types of diabetes as follows: 3 types of severe diabetes, including severe diabetes, dependent on insulin, severe insulin deficiency of diabetes, and finally severe diabetes, resistant on insulin. According to Swedish researchers, other types of diabetes are more benign, namely mild diabetes without real insulin resistance and another mild age-related insulin senesence or aging of the pancreas.
Lastly, in France, the French launch of Diabeloop made significant progress in marketing an artificial pancreas after obtaining the consent of the European Community. This is an innovative device that can benefit from Type 1 diabetic patients. How does it work? Simply thanks to the pump, in the form of a patch held on the arm, and the sensor located at the level of the abdomen. Blood glucose data is transmitted to the third part of the artificial pancreas located in the patient's pocket via a Bluetooth connection, and then complex algorithms are analyzed with parameters such as the person's weight or the patient's speed. insulin, a blood sugar level that can automatically adjust the required insulin dose given by the pump.
