Diabetes Mellitus Ch. 49

Sort Leading cause of: End-stage renal disease, adult blindness and non traumatic lower limb amputations. Major contributing factors are heart disease and stroke. Adults with diabetes have heart disease death rates 2 to 4 times higher than adults without diabetes. The risk for stroke is also 2 to 4 times higher among people with diabetes.

    Cancer
    Around one third of deaths from cancer are due to the 5 leading behavioral and dietary risks: high body mass index, low fruit and vegetable intake, lack of physical activity, tobacco use, and alcohol use.
    Tobacco use is the most important risk factor for cancer and is responsible for approximately 22% of cancer deaths.

    Cancer causing infections, such as hepatitis and human papilloma virus (HPV), are responsible for up to 25% of cancer cases in low- and middle-income countries
    Cardiovascular diseases

    Most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing behavioural risk factors such as tobacco use, unhealthy diet and obesity, physical inactivity and harmful use of alcohol using population-wide strategies.
    Diabetes mellitus

    Healthy diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a normal body weight and avoiding tobacco use are ways to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.

    Diabetes can be treated and its consequences avoided or delayed with diet, physical activity, medication and regular screening and treatment for complications.

    Sedentary Lifestyle , decreased physical activity,stressful life, exposure to carcinogens, increased consumption of tobacco, alcohol, junk food and presence of insecticides and pesticides in water and agricultural produce are heavily responsible. Also , advanced medical technique helps in identifying the above mentioned diseases more readily than the earlier times. So, all this adds up and makes one feel that there is rapid increase in incidence of such cases, where as previously many such cases were left undiagnosed due to ignorance or lack of diagnostic tools. One more fact is that there is increase in life expectancy and thus many age related diseases such as diabetes or cardiac problems manifest in the target population.

    Diabetic ketoacidosis is an acute metabolic complication of diabetes characterized by hyperglycemia, hyperketonemia, and metabolic acidosis. Hyperglycemia causes an osmotic diuresis with significant fluid and electrolyte loss. DKA occurs mostly in type 1 diabetes mellitus (DM). It causes nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain and can progress to cerebral edema, coma, and death. DKA is diagnosed by detection of hyperketonemia and anion gap metabolic ...
