World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day

The World diabetes Day was jointly launched by the World Health Organization and the International diabetes Alliance in 1991. Its purpose is to arouse global awareness and awareness of diabetes. At the end of 2006, the United Nations adopted a resolution to officially change the name of “World diabetes Day” to “United Nations diabetes Day” from 2007, and elevate experts and academic behavior to the behavior of governments of all countries, urging governments and all sectors of society to strengthen the control of diabetes and reduce the harm of diabetes. The slogan of this year’s promotional activity is: “Understand risks, understand responses”.

In almost every country in the world, the incidence rate of diabetes is rising. This disease is the main cause of blindness, kidney failure, amputation, heart disease, and stroke. Diabetes is one of the most important causes of death of patients. The number of patients killed by it every year is on a par with the number of deaths caused by AIDS virus/AIDS (HIV/AIDS).

According to statistics, there are 550 million diabetes patients in the world, and diabetes has become a global problem endangering human health, social and economic development. The total number of patients with diabetes is increasing by more than 7 million every year. If we treat diabetes negatively, it may threaten the health care services in many countries and devour the economic development achievements of developing countries. ”

Healthy lifestyle such as reasonable diet, regular exercise, healthy weight and avoiding tobacco use will help prevent the occurrence and development of type 2 diabetes.

Health recommendations proposed by the World Health Organization:
1. Diet: Choose whole grains, lean meat, and vegetables. Limit the intake of sugar and saturated fats (such as cream, cheese, butter).
2. Exercise: Reduce sedentary time and increase exercise time. Perform at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise (such as brisk walking, jogging, cycling, etc.) per week.
3. Monitoring: Please pay attention to possible symptoms of diabetes, such as excessive thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, slow wound healing, blurred vision and lack of energy. If you have any of these symptoms or belong to a high-risk population, please consult a medical professional. At the same time, family self-monitoring is also a necessary means。
