WHO first released the Global Diabetes report on April 6, 2016, showing that the number of adult diabetics worldwide has tripled in nearly 40 years, most of them living in developing countries. Among the world's people over the age of 18, the number of people with diabetes rose from 108 million in 1980 to 422 million in 2014, accounting for 8.5 per cent of the world's total population. No country has seen a substantial reduction in the proportion of people with diabetes, and the proportion of patients has risen more rapidly in middle-and low-income countries, the report said.
according to WHO, the incidence of type 2 diabetes in China has exploded over the past few decades, with less than 5 per cent of Chinese men suffering from diabetes in 1980, up from more than 10 per cent now. Statistics show that in China's entire adult population, there are nearly 10% of people with diabetes, of which the prevalence rate is 10.5% in men and 8.3% in women. At the same time, the report points out that it is alarming that young people generally do not exercise enough. Previously only in adults, type 2 diabetes is now increasingly found in children and adolescents.
according to the data released by the International Diabetes Federation, China has the largest number of diabetes patients in the world, with about 98.4 million in 2012, 109.6 million in 2013 and 114 million in 2014. In recent years, the incidence of young diabetes has increased year by year in China. Young patients with diabetes have accounted for about 5-10% of the total number of diabetes, and the annual rate of increase is nearly 10%. Liang Xiaofeng, deputy director of the China Center for Disease Control and Prevention, said:"the prevalence rate of adult diabetes in our country was less than 1% in 1979, 2.6% in 2002, and 9.7% in 2010, that is, 1/10 people have diabetes, about 100 million people. It was blowout, whistling, and ferocious."
the reporter learned from the Department of Obstetrics of Zhengzhou people's Hospital that the department recently gave birth to the heaviest baby this year, weighing 10.2 jin. Liu Weiliang, deputy director of obstetrics, said that high blood sugar caused by mothers to eat fruit as a meal is one of the main reasons for giving birth to overweight babies. Ms. Li heard that eating fruit during pregnancy can not only give the baby vitamin supplements, good for the baby's skin, but also will not make herself fat, she began to reduce staple food intake, eat a lot of fruit.
as a result of eating a lot of fruit, Ms. Li weighed 25 kilograms before giving birth, and when the baby in her belly was full-term, she developed gestational diabetes and the baby was too big, so doctors had to choose a cesarean section for her.
there is another case. Ms. Li and her husband have been married for almost two years. In October last year, Ms. Li found out that she was pregnant and quit her job to wait for labor at home. Her family was very concerned about it. Because of the recent muggy weather, Ms. Li's mother-in-law bought her a watermelon every day to reduce the summer heat. Because the watermelon is sweet and delicious, Ms. Li likes to eat it almost every day. At the beginning, Ms. Li found that she had eaten more and more recently, and the frequency of going to the toilet had also increased, thinking that it was caused by the opening of her appetite for watermelon, and she did not pay attention to it.
until a few days ago, Ms. Li suddenly found that the lower body bleeding, the baby unexpectedly miscarried, this just went to the hospital for examination, the doctor found that Ms. Li had gestational diabetes, and the situation is very serious, so there will be abortion, and the final reason is unexpectedly caused by eating too much watermelon. Statistics show that nearly 30% of women with gestational diabetes may develop type 2 diabetes in the future.
according to the diagnostic criteria of diabetes issued by WHO (World Health Organization) in 1999, fasting plasma glucose less than 6.0 (unit: mmol/L) was normal, fasting blood glucose between 6.07.0 and 7.0 was impaired, and fasting blood glucose greater than or equal to 7.0was diabetes. 2-hour postprandial blood glucose less than 7.8 is normal, between 7.8-11.1 is postprandial blood glucose damage, 2-hour postprandial blood glucose greater than or equal to 11.1 can be diagnosed as diabetes.
ADA (American Diabetes Association) recommended that glycosylated hemoglobin be controlled at less than 7%, and the International Diabetes Federation recommended that glycosylated hemoglobin be controlled at less than 6.5%. At present, the control standard of glycosylated hemoglobin in diabetic patients is less than 6.5%.
the value of glycosylated hemoglobin reflects the control of blood glucose: 4% 6%: normal blood glucose control; 6% 7%: ideal blood glucose control; 7% 8%: general blood glucose control; 8% 9%: unsatisfactory control, need to strengthen blood glucose control, pay more attention to diet and exercise, and adjust the treatment plan under the guidance of doctors; & gt;9%: blood glucose control is very poor, is a risk factor for the occurrence and development of chronic complications, may lead to diabetic nephropathy, arteriosclerosis, cataract and other complications, and may have acute complications such as ketoacidosis.
Diabetes can be divided into type 1 (insulin dependent type), type 2 (adult onset type) and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). At present, people with type 1 diabetes need daily injections of insulin, and most people with type 2 diabetes in the world. Complications of diabetes can lead to cardiovascular disease, renal failure, blindness, amputation and so on.
there is a direct relationship between eating large amounts of fruit and developing diabetes, and the sugar content of fruit is higher. Now there are a lot of anti-season fruit, all the year round can eat a variety of local fruit, advocate eating seasonal local fruit. How to eat fruits and vegetables, look at the properties of the food (search to join the health and hypoglycemia group, in the space).
many people like to eat fruit, think that can supplement vitamin C and trace elements, in fact, the highest content of vitamin C is not fruit, is vegetables-green pepper, sharp pepper, pepper and so on. Vegetables are generally fried, add seasoning onion, ginger and garlic, so eating vegetables is safer than eating fruit raw. Vegetables are generally picked, fruits are generally stored, vegetables are much fresh than fruit.
now some people even eat fruit in order to lose weight. With the change of people's eating habits, the intake of fruit is increasing, and the number of patients with diabetes is also increasing.
Diabetes mellitus is characterized by high blood sugar and high urine sugar, which is actually a problem with the pancreas. Pancreas has two parts, one is the pancreas, is the exocrine gland, produces pancreatic juice, contains trypsin, amylase and other substances, can act on the intestinal decomposition of proteins and other substances. Second, islets, like islands in the sea, are organs made up of a pile of cells in the pancreas. Islets are endocrine glands that mainly produce insulin. Insulin is an important hormone that enables cells to use glucose in the blood. When you eat enough, the blood sugar rises, and insulin is released into the blood, allowing glucose to enter the cell for use and lower blood sugar. Islets secrete less insulin, glucose metabolism is affected, there will be high blood sugar, high urine sugar. When insulin is deficient, the glucose entering the tissue cells decreases, the decomposition of hepatic glycogen increases, the glucose released into the blood by the liver increases greatly, the blood glucose level increases, and when the renal glucose threshold (8.89~10.0mmol/L) is exceeded, it is excreted from the urine and manifested as diabetes.
now doctors only focus on blood sugar and urine sugar, try to do all kinds of ways to reduce blood sugar, do not think of a way to solve the problem of pancreas, is the index of blood glucose and urine sugar qualified, diabetes is good? Such an index is qualified only the result of taking medicine, after stopping the drug, the index is still not qualified. Take hypoglycemic drugs for a long time, injure the liver. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that the liver is angry in the mind, tears in the liquid, and enlightened in the eye. Long-term liver injury can cause pathological changes in the eyes and eventually lead to blindness.
Scientific studies have shown that changes in blood sugar in the human body are often closely related to seasonal changes. During the year, summer is the season with the lowest blood sugar, and summer is the hottest season of the four seasons, indicating that the body temperature is related to the change of blood sugar.
Diabetes patients have been controlling their diet in order to control sugar, and all foods with high sugar content should not be eaten or eaten less. Diabetes itself is a disorder of sugar metabolism, resulting in a large loss of sugar, the body is in a state of lack of sugar. Control diet, will inevitably lead to reduced sugar intake, body sugar deficiency will be more serious, to prevent the occurrence of hypoglycemia, hypoglycemia can endanger human life. The body is short of sugar for a long time, the physical quality also can appear to decline, the whole body is weak. The decline in physical fitness has made it more difficult to recover from diabetes.
it is impossible to cure diabetes without solving the problem of pancreas. Symptoms do not cure the root causes, diabetes can never be cured, can only be maintained. A disease, there is only one cause, but there can be many symptoms. If we use the method of cure at the root of the problem, the disease will disappear naturally. By using the method of temporary treatment, the symptoms will be repeated and become more and more serious. Do you want to restore pancreatic function and fight diabetes?

at present, diabetes mellitus is maintained with a temporary and non-permanent treatment, and the complications gradually appear as a result of a long period of time. Diabetes is not terrible, but complications. Once complications occur, it will have a serious impact on the whole body of Sugar Friends. Diabetic complications have the following 17 common risk signals, sugar friends must be vigilant.
1. Tired and weak. This is because, sugar friend body glucose transport and metabolism is blocked, coupled with the accumulation of metabolites in the body, the whole body will appear serious fatigue, weakness.
2. Dizziness, panic, chest tightness. If there are these manifestations, it is most likely that there is hypoglycemia, and it may also be accompanied by symptoms such as hunger, sweating, hand shaking, pallor, etc.; it may also be postural hypotension, that is, a sudden drop in blood pressure when posture changes, suggesting that sugar friends may have cardiovascular complications.
3. I'm swollen all over. This suggests that blood sugar drops too quickly, causing intracellular edema.
4. Thirsty, dry throat. This shows that the blood glucose of Sugar Friends increases and the blood viscosity increases. Some sugar friends because the thirst center is not sensitive, although the blood sugar increases, but does not have the thirst symptom.
5. Blood pressure's up. An increase in blood sugar can lead to an increase in blood volume and a rise in blood pressure.
6. Abdominal distension, constipation. Long-term hyperglycemia is easy to damage the gastrointestinal autonomic nerve of sugar friends, which leads to gastrointestinal dysfunction, abdominal distension and constipation. Abdominal distension and constipation may also be associated with taking certain hypoglycemic drugs. In addition, we should also guard against the possibility of diabet

the vast majority of type 1 diabetes mellitus is autoimmune disease. Genetic factors and environmental factors are involved in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes mellitus. Some external factors (such as viral infection, chemical toxicants and diet (premature exposure to milk or cereal protein) act on individuals with genetic susceptibility to activate a series of autoimmune responses mediated by T lymphocytes, resulting in selective islet β cell destruction and functional failure, progressive exacerbation of insulin secretion in the body, and ultimately diabetes. In recent years, it has been confirmed that insulin resistance also exists in type 1 diabetes, which also plays a role in the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes and/or accelerating the deterioration of the disease. Type 2 diabetes mellitus, genetic and environmental factors (age, modern lifestyle, overnutrition, lack of physical activity, intrauterine environment and stress, chemical toxicants, etc.), it should be noted that obesity caused by the combined action of the two factors, especially central obesity, is closely related to the occurrence of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

The time of overeating and overeating is irregular. Type 2 diabetes was detected a month ago and lay in the hospital for a week. At that time, it was more than 17:00 on an empty stomach and more than 13:00 after a meal. At that time, the doctor said that my blood sugar could not be controlled, I had to take insulin, and my family was against it. After all, I was only 20 years old. I don't want to fight myself. I can't stand the thought of having to stab myself with a needle before I eat. At that time, my first thought was to give up treatment, to get out of the hospital, and how long I could live without treatment. All the friends around me advised me, and finally insisted on talking to the doctor. I remember what I said at that time. I said that as long as I thought I would have an injection in the future, I could not eat. At that time, the doctors all laughed, and the doctor agreed to it when I was young. That week in the hospital to eat fast food, a fast food to eat two meals, one meal to eat a little, every day is balsam pear, green pepper fried balsam pear or balsam pear scrambled eggs, for those who never eat balsam pear simply do not torture people.
at that time, the hospital ran out of beds or added a bed in the hallway. Every morning, it began to hang up water until 2: 00 p.m., after hanging up water, he walked home for dinner, took a bath, and then returned to the hospital at 10: 00 p.m., there was a bottle of water. At that time, the hospital was two kilometers from home, back and forth twice a day, and those days came out of the muscles of one leg. Later, the blood sugar dropped a little bit from 17:00 to 12: 10:00, and finally the doctor gave me medicine on an empty stomach from more than 9: 00 to 6: 00. Later, I got out of the hospital. Now I work outside and eat too much to control my mouth. Sometimes I think it's too painful to die, so now the idea has become to eat and drink and live the rest of my life.
ha, I think I should be a negative example, I hope that the patients will not be like me, after all, the world is still so beautiful.

Hello, there are many causes of diabetes, mainly due to the following reasons:
1, genetic factors: type 1 ortype 2 diabetesall have family genetic susceptibility.
2. Obesity: obesity is an important cause of diabetes. In particular, it is easy to cause type 2 diabetes. Especially abdominal obesity.
3. Insufficient activity: the decrease of physical activity has become an important factor in the pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes.
4. Diet structure: high fat diet can inhibit metabolic rate and make weight gain and obesity.
5. Mental nerve factors: in the process of the occurrence and development of diabetes, the important role of mental nerve factors is recognized by Chinese and foreign scholars in recent years.
6. Virus infection:patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus have abnormal immune system, in some viruses such as coxsackievirus,rubellavirus, parotid virus and other infections lead to autoimmune response and destroy insulin β cells. Some patients with type I diabetes develop after they suffer from viral infectious diseases such as colds and mumps.

usually the emergence of disease is closely related to people's lives, and diabetes is a typical representative of this phenomenon. With the increase of modern work pressure and the acceleration of the pace of life, many people suffer from diabetes. These living cases must be paid attention to. In order to be able to more comprehensive prevention of diabetes, it is necessary to know the causes of diabetes, the following let the mother network encyclopedia to introduce the causes of diabetes.
If both husband and wife are diabetics, the children they give birth to have a half chance of developing diabetes. If one of the parents has diabetes, although the child will not necessarily develop diabetes, but will become a carrier of the diabetes gene, then the prevalence of children born to him will be relatively high.
2, bad living habits and other factors
in addition to genetic factors, the cause of diabetes comes from the patients' bad habits and some other life factors. For example, overwork in youth, resulting in functional impairment, or congenital deficiency and acquired loss of balance, or premature senility, as well as obese people, the accumulation of too much fat in the body, interfering with the heart, kidneys, lungs, liver and vascular disorders. These factors lead to pancreatic failure and inadequate insulin secretion, which can lead to the risk of diabetes.
