Accepted October 15, 2015. Published online first: November 30, 2015. The global burden of diabetes and its accompanying risk factors is upon us. Asia is the focus of this burden, owing to huge population numbers and increasing prevalence rates. The Philippines National Health and Nutrition Survey (NNHeS) of 2013, has provided the latest health and disease score with prevalence rates of the major risk factors among adults 20 years of age: diabetes (5.4%), hypertension (22.3%), dyslipidemia, low HDL (71.3%), obesity, BMI >25 kg/m2 (31.1%), and smoking (25.4%). Metabolic syndrome as of the 2008 survey reports a 27% prevalence rate (unpublished data). Efforts have to be directed to achieve improvement in prevention, survival, and quality of life for all diabetics. The health infrastructure under the leadership of the Department of Health, in partnership with governmental and non-governmental organizations has to provide a cohesive plan engaging all partners in various aspects of care. Strategies to enhance outcomes include: 1) a national screening program, 2) implementation of practice guidelines that will elevate the quality of care for all, 3) access to healthcare, medications, 4) development of an environment for research in institutions to allow a better understanding of these conditions among Filipino patients and 5) enhancement of training, education and service Continue reading >>

Philippines' Diabetes Profile

Philippines' Diabetes Profile

Worldwide, diabetes prevalence increased fourfold, from 108 million in 1980 to 402 million in 2014. In the Philippines, the situation is no better where it is estimated that 1 in 5 Filipinos is a diabetic. Below are the latest statistics relevant to diabetes in the Philippines. The World Health Organization predicts that from 2.7 million in 2000, the number of diabetics in the country will reach 7.7 million by the year 2030. This hews closely to the current trend. The International Diabetes Federation has noted that diabetes has already exceeded the projected rate set for 2025 when it is around 320 million diabetics worldwide. In 2015, however, there are 415 million already suffering from diabetes. Currently, there are 4 million diabetic Filipinos who are diagnosed, but even more worrisome is that theres an even bigger number of Filipinos who are unaware they have the disease. The 2008 survey estimated that 20 percent of the population have increased sugar levels, which is about 1 in 5 Filipinos. Diabetes now affects even young people but it is a trend not only in the Philippines, but elsewhere. The rate of diabetes affecting those aged 18 and above has risen to 8.5 in 2014 from 4.7 in 1980, the World Health Organization noted. It is predicted that the Philippines, in the coming years, will be part of the top countries affected by diabetes due to the accelerated rate of citizens developing the disease. A 2015 meta-analysis, done by Dr Gerry Tan of Cebu Doctors University Hospital, noted that rapid urbanization in the Philippines is one of the factors that propelled the upward trend of the disease. Furthermore, Dr Tan said that diabetes care in the Philippines is a challenge in itself in terms of having resources, government support, and economics. The national insuranc Continue reading >>

Submitted: 16 May 2007 Modified: 21 June 2017 Hypertension control program in the Philippines. Hypertension is a global as well as a local epidemic. Yet, reactive management is commonly employed. Are there other options? A "womb to tomb" proactive strategy conceptualized since the birth of the Philippine Society of Hypertension is the objective of this presentation. Hypertension is often on a case-to-case diagnosis basis with limited detection and control rate. Primordial prevention identifies hypertension risk-prone cases, e.g. high salt intake dwellers, passive or active smokers, obese, low-birth weight and siblings of smoking or malnourished mothers. Life style monitoring and advisory could prevent health to disease transition by identifying risk-prone family members of at-risk cases. The complex problem of hypertension is exacerbated by the exclusive focus on and limited continuing BP control. Management of co-morbidity should compliment the start-treatment threshold at 140/90 mmHg wherein unrecognized diastolic LV dysfunction may already exist. Any anti-hypertension agent can diminish target organ involvement. However, wall stress related to microvascular ischemia is a co-morbid complication related to cigarette smokers, hypertension, diabetes and dyslipidemia. Attenuation of the hypertension syndrome induced diastolic LV dysfunction can reduce the hazards leading to CHF. Hypertension preventive programs success depends also on health providers appreciation of end-users knowledge, attitudes, practices and culture. Aside from individualized priority, Smoking, overEating, eXercise, Hypertension, Diabetes, and dysLipidemia (S.E.X-H.D.L.) should be a "family affair" strategy. Thus, the "womb to tomb" strategy identifies hypertension and co-morbid risk-prone, cases to Continue reading >>

Diabetes Chronic Disease Prevention & Health Promotion Division Home What is Diabetes? Diabetes Prevention & Control Program The Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) is funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and provides public health leadership for diabetes in the state. A major function of DPCP is to convene stakeholders in order to better coordinate the Hawaii diabetes health system and achieve common goals. DPCP also works with partners to promote diabetes prevention and management throughout the state. To help promote diabetes prevention, DPCP formed the Prediabetes Task Force which focuses on: 1) awareness of prediabetes; 2) availability and support of CDC-recognized Diabetes Prevention Programs (DPPs); 3) clinical screening, testing, and referral to DPPs; and 4) coverage of DPPs by employers and health plans. With the help of the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors , Hawaii Primary Care Association , and the YMCA of Honolulu , the Task Force has created an action plan called, The Hawaii Diabetes Prevention Plan to Scale and Sustain the National Diabetes Prevention Program to facilitate the establishment and growth of DPPs. Along with community stakeholders, the DPCP is presently working to achieve the following priorities identified in the plan: Develop an awareness campaign targeted to the public and health care sector. Establish at least one accessible, culturally-appropriate CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program serving a priority population on each island. Increase by two the number of health systems that develop a partnership and a data sharing agreement with a community organization and a CDC-recognized diabetes prevention program to increase screenings and referrals into DPP.

Proper nutrition and by eating the right foods can help prevent or delay the occurrence of kidney diseases. It is vital for parents or guardians to provide their children with a healthy diet. Eating moderately such as reduced intakes of salt, sugar and protein can help lessen the incidence of developing a kidney disease, he emphasized. During the three day event, a total of 401 students were screened: 193 pupils from Panique Elementary School, and 208 from South Central Elementary School. Among that number, 201 were from grades 1-3 and 200 from grades 4-6. There were 74 students referred to the Rural Health Unit for urinalysis and 15 showed abnormal results.
