Everyone is very familiar with diabetes, but for the vast majority of people, it is limited to “familiarity”, and they do not really understand the disease. The lack of knowledge is ultimately not good for the disease.
For the clinical types of diabetes, we all know that type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, in fact, there are gestational diabetes and special types of diabetes, especially the first three types mentioned in turn are more common.
In addition to type 1 diabetes, which has a greater relationship with genetics, type 2 diabetes is mainly acquired, closely related to people’s living habits, and accounts for the main cause of adult onset. Also, with the liberalization of national policies, people have begun to live with three children. During this period, women still need to recover their bodies. After giving birth to one child, it often takes 2 to 3 years to have a second child.
In addition to late marriage and late childbearing, the obstetrics and gynecology departments in major regions Maternal women (greater than 35 years old) showed a linear upward trend. At this age, women are more prone to blood sugar metabolism and other problems than younger mothers, and even gestational diabetes, which is not good for the fetus.
At the same time, in order to avoid fluctuations in blood sugar or aggravation of the disease, it is recommended that you do these two checks every time, which is related to the happiness of the rest of your life.
Many diabetic patients do not know why they need fundus examination. In fact, this is because retinopathy is one of the microvascular complications among diabetic complications. To better prevent it, it is necessary to perform fundus examination at least once a year , and when an abnormal trend occurs, cooperate with the doctor to take drugs that can improve and prevent more serious trends.
Especially for diabetic patients, the longer the duration of the disease, the more attention should be paid to diabetic retinopathy, the longer the duration, the greater the prevalence. In addition, it is difficult to have significant symptoms in the early stage of this microvascular disease, and it is not possible to show vision loss, blurred vision, or even being unable to see anything clearly until it develops severely.
Glycated hemoglobin check:
In addition to daily monitoring levels, diabetic patients should have heard of “glycosylated hemoglobin check”. For healthy people, the body’s glycosylated hemoglobin level is 6% to 8%, while diabetic patients are twice or even three times higher than other people due to their own illness.
That is to say, when the value of glycosylated hemoglobin measured by diabetic patients is between 10% and 16 %, indicating that the patient’s condition has been controlled to a certain extent; if the glycated bloodRed protein below 10%, indicating that blood sugar is very stable;
However, if the glycated hemoglobin value exceeds 16%, no matter Whether it is taking medicine or lifestyle, neither is under control. It is still necessary to follow the doctor’s advice and actively take corresponding measures to avoid continuous rise in blood sugar level, affecting other tissues and organs of the body, and it is not good for preventing complications.
