Diabetes is a chronic degenerative disease that, without good control, causes multiple complications in organisms and is the first cause of death in the owners of the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) in Coahuila.
Martín Alfredo Segovia Domínguez, an internal medicine specialist, recommends that you practice by practicing the unit every six months because early detection of this condition is critical to preventing or delaying the damage.
On the other hand, people who do not have adequate treatment will have complications that affect their quality of life in the mid to long term, some of which are heart disease and kidney failure.
Other effects that do not affect your life but deteriorate quality are reduced vision that affects the circulatory system, neuropathy and diabetic foot. The results depend on the patient's care and attention to treatment, and the level of patient's injury.
Obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, hypertension and genetic predisposition are some of the major causes.
If people do not know, they can have diabetes, so if you have symptoms such as thirst, dry mouth, frequent urination, increased appetite, or unexplained weight loss, see your doctor. .
Detection of diabetes is quick and simple. Since abnormal signs may not be noticeable, it is ideal for everyone with genetic predisposition or risk once a year.
In all medical units of social security, measures are carried out from school age to adulthood with the aim of prevention, health education and self-management programs.
Segovia Domínguez emphasizes the importance of prevention and, if you have already received treatment, please take it with you.
