In the case of diabetes, several potential risk factors have been identified as well as the factors causing this disease.
It is not yet clear what causes type 1 diabetes. However, the risk is considered to be slightly increased in people with relatives affected by the disease. Environmental factors and exposure to some viral infections are also associated with the risk of type 1 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes involves several risk factors, including:
The next factor: The history of diabetes in the family. Individuals with family members with type 2 diabetes have an increased risk of developing the same disease.
Unhealthy diet: When eating too much refined carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, pastry, confectionery or juices) and saturated fats, too little fruits and vegetables increase body weight and thus increase the risk of diabetes.
Sedentarism and weight: Studies have shown that 30 minutes of moderate movement is sufficient for one day, 5 days a week, to stay healthy and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Between 65 and 80% of new cases of type 2 diabetes are associated with overweight or obese people. The risk is related to the age at which the accumulation of overweight and the duration of obesity, and the accumulation of body weight among adults began.
in reduced weight is a possible risk indicator for the development of type 2 diabetes.
age: Elderly, the greater the risk of diabetes. However, Type 2 diabetes is increasing in all age groups and is often found in children and adolescents.
Changed glucose tolerance (prediabetes): The body does not respond adequately to insulin secretion and blood glucose levels can not be maintained within normal limits.
Gestational diabetes: Women who have had diabetes-induced pregnancy have an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Gestational diabetes is also associated with a higher risk of obesity and abnormal glucose metabolism in children resulting from these pregnancies.
in socio-economic factors contributes to the development of diabetes and the emergence of complications due to living conditions that promote an unhealthy choice of food.
"Specialists in diabetes are those who not only establish treatment, they also help with lifestyle advice that will control the disease. A person with type 2 diabetes, when diagnosed, enters a rigorous program introduced by a diabetologist Therapeutic education supported by a diabetic educator with nutritional information, the importance of physical effort, glycemic control, information and education on the use of glycemic monitoring devices and injection aids for therapy is essential. At the same time, all data provided by diabetes patient started with diabetes, said Dr. Gabriel Ilean Creteanu, Head of the Center of JudeAntidiabetic Suceava from the Hospital Hospital in St. John New in Suceava.
For all those interested, on Monday, November 12, 2018, experts from the Anti-Disease Center Suceava will be organized at the District Clinical Hospital Sv. Janeza Nova in Suceava, together with the Federation of Diabetes Associations in Romania, a free blood glucose test along with a risk assessment and specialized advice on healthy diets or appropriate treatment of diabetes with the family.
