Diabetes

A genuinely global epidemic1

The world currently has 425 million1 adults diabetics and this number is expected to rise to 629 million1 by 2045. Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas no longer produces sufficient insulin (type 1 diabetes) or when the insulin produced is not used effectively by the body (type 2 diabetes).

Three forms of diabetes

Three forms of diabetes affect three different types of people:

  • Type 1 (or juvenile) diabetes is an autoimmune disease seen mainly in children and young adults
  • Type 2 or non-insulin-dependent diabetes accounts for 90% of all diabetes cases3
  • Gestational diabetes is characterized by chronic hyperglycemia in pregnancy, which in most cases disappears once the baby is born

The need for diagnosis

Hyperglycemia or the excessively high blood glucose levels that result from diabetes can result in complications that compromise affect the quality of life and threaten the life expectancy of patients.?

Currently 212 million2?people around the world are unaware of the fact that they have diabetes.

Left undiagnosed or incorrectly treated, diabetes can have serious long-term consequences for the body, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease (coronary artery disease, heart attack, cerebrovascular accidents), which is the principal cause of death from diabetes
  • Kidney failure, blindness, lower limb nerve damage, chronic lesions which could lead to amputation
Air Liquide Healthcare contributes to the process of continual improvement in diabetes management.

Long-term treatment4-5-6

The recommended treatments to achieve a better glycemic balance are specific to each type of diabetes.
The only treatment for type 1 diabetes is the administration of insulin日日夜夜撸, either in the form of injections with a syringe or pen, or using an insulin pump; a portable or implantable device that administers insulin continually to avoid the need for multiple injections.

Type 2 and gestational diabetes are treated initially through healthy lifestyle and dietary measures alone. Often associated with excess weight or obesity, diabete develops insidiously and may remain undiagnosed for long periods. For type 2 diabetes, oral anti-diabetic drugs may be prescribed in conjunction with lifestyle changes.

Insulin is administered only to those patients for whom these measures prove insufficient to achieve the required goals and glycemic balance.

日日夜夜撸For pregnant women, the preferred treatment is insulin, because oral anti-diabetic drugs are inadvisable in most cases.

日日夜夜撸In addition to taking these specific medications, diabetic patients must adopt lifestyle improvements, including a balanced diet, regular physical activity and zero tobacco.
