Did you know that an estimated 1,048,918 Ohio adults have been diagnosed with diabetes? Diabetes is one of the most prevalent and serious chronic diseases in the United States. In 2014, about 29.1 million people or 9.3% of the population have diabetes, 8.1 million of whom do not know that they have the disease. (Source: CDC ). In 2014, approximately 70,000 new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in adults ages 18 76 years old, and that number is set to grow as the aging U.S. population rises along with the increasing prevalence of overweight or obese Americans (Source: CDC Diabetes Atlas ). Over the past 20 years, from 1994 through 2014, the number of adults diagnosed with diabetes in Ohio has risen from approximately 4.8% to 10.3%. In addition, it is estimated that another 6.1% of Ohio adults have been diagnosed with prediabetes, increasing their risk of progressing to Type 2 diabetes later in life. (Source: CDC Diabetes Atlas ). Diabetes was also the primary cause of death for 3,600 Ohioans and was a contributing cause of many more deaths (Source: 2015 Ohio Chronic Disease Report ).

Seven Counties Of Appalachian Ohio Evidence Disturbing Rates Of Diabetes, According To Arhi/voinovich Center Survey

Seven Counties Of Appalachian Ohio Evidence Disturbing Rates Of Diabetes, According To Arhi/voinovich Center Survey

Seven counties of Appalachian Ohio evidence disturbing rates of diabetes, according to ARHI/Voinovich Center survey The prevalence of diabetes throughout seven counties of Southeastern Ohio may be almost twice as high as the state and national averages according to a survey by the Appalachian Rural Health Institute (ARHI) and Voinovich Center for Leadership & Public Affairs at Ohio University. The seven counties surveyed were Jackson, Meigs, Morgan, Perry, Ross, Washington and Scioto. Perry and Morgan counties were first and second, respectively, for the highest prevalence of diabetes. Results from all seven counties were higher than state and national diabetes rates. The survey, funded by the Ohio Diabetes and Control Program of the Ohio Department of Health, also found that almost one-quarter of those who responded were taking neither insulin nor other diabetes medication to help treat the disease. The results of this survey indicate that persons in Appalachian Ohio have prevalence rates for diabetes equivalent to those reported for high risk ethnic groups in the country, says Frank Schwartz, M.D., director of ARHIs Diabetes/Endocrine Center and OU-COM associate professor of endocrinology. Schwartz was the principal investigator for the study. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not adequately produce or utilize insulin, which stimulates the transport of blood glucose (sugar) into body cells. Unchecked or untreated diabetes leads to hyperglycemia highly elevated levels of blood glucose. The complications of untreated and/or long-term diabetes comprise a number of life-impairing and life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease and stroke, which account for roughly 65 percent of diabetes-related fatalities; high blood pressure; diabetic retinopathy (blindn Continue reading >>

Ohio Doctors Urged To Screen Patients For Prediabetes To Prevent Problems

Ohio Doctors Urged To Screen Patients For Prediabetes To Prevent Problems

A new statewide initiative aimed at curbing Ohio’s high rate of type 2 diabetes is encouraging physicians to screen more people for prediabetes and refer those who are at risk to programs that spur lifestyle changes. The American Medical Association effort is modeled after programs launched last year in California, Michigan and South Carolina. It was expanded into Ohio and seven other states this month. The AMA is partnering in the project with the Ohio State Medical Association, which will reach out to physicians through its website, magazine, e-newsletters, emails and social media, to provide them with prediabetes-specific tools and resources. “A large number of Americans, certainly many of those living here in Ohio, may have prediabetes or may have type 2 diabetes already and not know it,” said Reggie Fields, spokesman for the state association. “We want to encourage and support physicians who want to do more to help patients by testing, diagnosing and treating prediabetes.” Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90 percent to 95 percent of diabetes cases in Ohio, according to the association. In people with the condition, the pancreas cannot make enough insulin to properly regulate blood-sugar levels and, over time, that can lead to damage to the eyes, kidneys, nerves or heart. Only about 10 percent of people with prediabetes are aware of it, according to the AMA. Risk factors include excess weight, lack of exercise, high blood pressure and a family history of diabetes, said Brenda Rendelman, director of diabetes education for the Central Ohio Diabetes Association. “Prediabetes is insidious and can be very silent, and this is why people have to be very proactive about their health and be tested at least annually and especially if they have risk factors,” she sai Continue reading >>

Prediabetes

Prediabetes

Prediabetes is a condition in which individuals have blood sugar/glucose levels higher than normal but not high enough to be diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Individuals that are diagnosed with prediabetes are at an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes within 10 years along with other health problems such as heart disease and stroke. Am I At Risk for Prediabetes? According to CDC, individuals who have the following risk factors may be at higher risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. Overweight 45 years of age or older Family history of type 2 diabetes Physically inactive (less than 3 times per week) Gave birth to a baby that weight more than 9 pounds Gestational diabetes High blood pressure Abnormal cholesterol Race, ethnicity, and age also affect your risk. African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, American Indians, Pacific Islanders, and some Asian American, as well as the aging population, are at particularly high risk for prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), prediabetes can be diagnosed through one of the following tests: 1. A hemoglobin A1c (A1c) – Measures average blood glucose for the past 3 months. Prediabetes is diagnosed at an A1C between 5.7% – 6.4%. 2. Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) – Measures fasting blood sugar/glucose levels after not having anything to eat or drink for at least 8 hours. Prediabetes is diagnosed at a FPG level of 100 – 125 mg/dl. 3. An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) – Measures blood glucose levels before and 2 hours after the consumption of a special sweet drink. Prediabetes is diagnosed at a 2 hour blood glucose level of 140 mg/dl – 199mg/dl.

Ohio Diabetes 2010 Fact Sheet

Ohio Diabetes 2010 Fact Sheet

Diabetes is a serious health condition that has continued to increase in Ohio. According to 2009 state data, it is estimated that 10.1 percent of Ohio adults have been diagnosed with diabetes. The estimated adult prevalence of diagnosed diabetes in Ohio has grown considerably (37 percent) since the year 2000. If current trends continue in our state as they have nationally, 1 in 3 Ohioans will develop diabetes sometime in their lifetime, and those with diabetes will lose an average of 10 -15 years of potential life. Diabetes can lead to serious health-related complications. Diabetes is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease, blindness, kidney failure and non-traumatic lower extremity amputations among adults. Adults in Ohio with diabetes are 2 to 4 times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke then those without diabetes. Ohio Diabetes Prevalence Diagnosed Diabetes Prevalence for Ohio Adults (18+), 20091 An estimated 895,571 persons aged 18 years and older in Ohio (10.1 percent of this age group) have been diagnosed with diabetes.

The Ohio Gestational Diabetes Mellitus Collaborative: Working to Prevent or Delay Type 2 Diabetes among Women with a History of Gestational Diabetes The Ohio Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) Collaborative aims to increase the number of women who receive postpartum screening and education for Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) so health risks are addressed early and effectively. The Office of Health Improvement and Wellness and the Bureau of Health Promotion form the Ohio Department of Health's (ODH) Ohio (GDM) Collaborative. Ohio Medicaid is an additional partner. The group is a unique collaboration between chronic disease and maternal child health with the over-arching goal to prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes mellitus in (T2DM) women who have a history of gestational diabetes (GDM). The team formed in the spring of 2010 when ODH competitively applied and was selected to participate in a national, year-long learning collaborative administered by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs (AMCHP), and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD). The team has worked to improve preventive healthcare provision in Ohio in accordance with national guidelines; increase the publics knowledge about gestational diabetes; reduce the Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) risk; and increasing access to preventive care. In addition, it has worked to improve the understanding of the epidemiology of gestational diabetes in Ohio by increasing the availability, use and dissemination of public health data. During our brief, but impactful history the team had several key accomplishments that proved to be the foundation of the quality improvement initiative that began in 2013. Those accomplishments were: Gest Continue reading >>
