Diabetes skyrockets 75% in just one decade … medical system clueless about answers
Diabetes is an insidious disease that has increased the prevalence of everyone, but especially in Western civilizations. For example, new data showed that in the UK, the incidence of diabetes increased by 75 percent in just 10 years.
In the United Kingdom, 137,000 new cases of diabetes were recorded by physicians during the past year and 1.5 million new cases were reported during the last decade. The main factor contributing to this massive influx of diabetes, of course, is type 2 diabetes.
The United States should not improve diabetes. Between 1995 and 2010, the CDC reported that the incidence of diabetes increased by an average of 82.2 percent nationwide. In 18 states, the prevalence of diabetes has increased by 100% or more. In 2012, it is estimated that more than 29 million Americans have diabetes.
Across the pond, experts warn that the disease reaches crisis proportions. About 65 people die each day from the premature death of diabetes in the UK. In the United States, diabetes is one of the top 10 causes of death. Death is not the only undesirable outcome of diabetes, of course. This condition is known to contribute to other diseases and adverse effects. For example, UK express reports say: “Every day, 203 diabetics suffer from heart failure, 78 strokes, 39 people need dialysis or kidney transplantation and 20 people have amputated legs.”
Chris Askew, CEO of Diabetes UK, has no words when he said: “Diabetes is a killer. This is a serious problem with serious and potentially life-threatening complications.”
One of the main problems associated with diabetes is that most people do not take it seriously enough. As Dr. John Buse said, a professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine, “it is a disease that, even when people are diagnosed, often think,” Oh, diabetes – they control the level of sugar. This is not an offer. “Even some medical professionals do not take it seriously.
In surveys, diabetes is generally classified as being about half as serious as diseases such as cancer and heart disease, but in reality it could not be further from the truth. Diabetes is a deadly disease. There is a great disconnect between the perception of diabetes in people and the reality of the disease. There are many complications associated with this condition. Heart disease, kidney damage, nerve damage, foot ulcers and amputations, retinopathy and ocular conditions are some of the health problems associated with diabetes. Cognitive function and mental health can also be hampered by diabetes. People with diabetes have an increased risk of developing dementia as they get older and are more likely to experience memory problems. Diabetes also doubles the risk of depression.
Type 2 diabetes is usually caused by lifestyle illness and eating habits. Express said that the type 2 diabetes crisis is the result of the ever-growing obesity epidemic. In an attempt to reduce the increasing prevalence of diabetes, NHS England has launched what they called the Diabetes Prevention Program. The program aims to offer tips on healthy eating, weight loss, exercise plans and other aspects of a healthy lifestyle.
In the United Kingdom, the treatment of diabetes and its effects costs about 10 percent of the annual budget of the NHS. This is not a cheap disease, and many are increasingly worried about rising costs. Experts fear that it is only a matter of time before hospitals are not forced to choose and choose the conditions they can treat. Martin Claridge, a vascular surgeon, commented: “I am worried that the NHS will have to decide what conditions it is or will not do and that it is a very difficult decision.”
Prospects for the United States do not seem to be brighter. In 2012, the total cost of diabetes in the United States reached 245 billion. Adjusted average revealed that the cost of care for a person with diabetes was more than double that of a person without diabetes.
