(Taiwan English News / Zhu Mingzhu interview report) Every 8 seconds in the world, one person died of diabetes, the rate of cases over 65 years of age was 29.9%, and one patient was for each one four elderly. In 2017, the number of patients with diabetes in Taiwan was above 2.3 million, and continued to increase at a rate of 25,000 a year. Diabetes has become an epidemic that has swept the world. With the new vision of preventative medicine, precautionary precaution has become a new mainstream of disease treatment.
Every year, 6-22% of patients before diabetes go on to diabetes, as patients with no obvious symptoms often know rickets, but in recent years, medical evidence has confirmed that screening and evaluation can be done before diabetes before the insulin resistant index. According to almost 5,000 well-known health control centers data, patients with abnormal insulin resistance (HOMA-IR ≥ 2), even if blood sugar is normal, there is still one of five diabetes risk .
The main cause of insulin resistance is too much fat, especially in patients with indoor dirty fat, body fat and fatty liver. Most patients before diabetes … the body often does not respond well to insulin, causing "insulin resistance", and the pancreas must compensate for more insulin to reduce blood sugar.
Ma Wenya, MD, said that if the stopping index is 5, it requires the body to secrete 5 times of insulin to reduce blood sugar. When the cells aging, 5 insulin can not be produced, the blood sugar will rise.
Pre-diabetes (insulin resistant) did not take preventative action. After 15 years, up to 60% developed diabetes, and the most effective way of improving insulin resistance is to increase muscle mass, change body composition, and improve blood sugar metabolism.
Dr. Lai Sijia is that diabetes is not only anxiety, but also closely related to diet, exercise and living habits. In addition, the ability to screen effectively, detect symptoms, grasp the golden sting, and start early stages is the key to reverse the disease.
