More than 90 percent of the world's diabetes mellitus is diabetes of the second type, which, according to experts, affects the lifestyle and the environment.
As diabetes is said, but already children and youth. "The most important factor in the development of type 2 diabetes is overweight and obesity" said deputy chairman of the Slovak diabetes society (SDS) Zbenek Shroner. He mentioned the weight of the youth and the cause of obesity poor nutrition that consumes high energy, low fiber foods.
"We call the" colonization of Coca-Cola " says Schroner. According to her, the lifestyle for children is very important. Type 2 diabetes is different in different countries. We can talk about a significant increase in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Thailand, and Japan. In Europe, the second type of diabetes is most commonly found in Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Malta or Western Europe., but, according to Schroner, there is an increase in the situation in Central and Eastern Europe. Slovakia is still rare. "But we are worried about the deterioration of this situation," he said.
The basics of prevention and treatment are non-medicated and non-pharmacological measures, such as healthy diet and exercise. "Parents' involvement in the right lifestyle plays a major role. Increasing physical activity of children is very important, so a good choice does not engage in cycling, for example, skating, dancing or dancing, says Schroner. However, it is important to have a solid society for diabetes.
"Genes allow diabetes for the second type of diabetes, but they do not do it, says SDS Viera Doničova. Genetic sensitivity to the development of type 2 diabetes is not a sufficient condition for the occurrence of disease. "Direct relationships such as diabetes mellitus or high blood sugar are important. In the past or earlier, there is a high risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and malignant women with heart disease. Added donichova.
Patients with some risk factors should be tested once a year. In patients without risk factors, blood sugar levels are tested every three years. In 2002, people with high levels of diabetes lowered the risk of diabetes by 31%, but there was no active substance. Physical activity reduced the risk of diabetes by 58%. SDK Chairman Katarina Rashlova says: "It's never too late to learn or change your eating habits. It also seeks to increase public awareness about healthy diet.
