How many people get diabetes mellitus, type 2 a year in the United States?

Approximately 10% of the population in the United States has diabetes mellitus, type 2 and more than 70 million persons have chronic disease. Diabetes mellitus, type 2 and diabetic retinopathy are prevalent and often accompany obesity. A number of population-based studies have been performed to evaluate the incidence of these disease processes and many have reported that the incidence of diabetes mellitus, type 2 and diabetic retinopathy increases as the number of years since the initial diagnosis of diabetes declines. The present study found that the incidence of diabetes mellitus, type 2 increased by a 2.3 fold higher rate over 11 years compared with the incidence at the time of the first documentation of diabetes mellitus, type 2.

What causes diabetes mellitus, type 2?

As diabetes is a complex disease, its onset involves genetics, diet, the presence of other non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus risk factors in a person's family, and exposure to excess energy. Diabetes has other effects on the body, causing elevated blood pressure, nerve damage and increased blood glucose levels. The word 'diabetes' comes from the Greek words 'di' and 'airein' (), meaning 'a' and 'to perish', or 'to die'. Diabetes mellitus type 1 is inherited (100% chance), and type 2 inherited in the person's parents (63% probability), the remaining cases being due to environmental effects (27%), such as obesity.

What are the signs of diabetes mellitus, type 2?

It is concluded that the most prominent signs of insulin resistance and insulin resistance-diabetes syndrome are hyperglycaemia, peripheral insulin resistance, increased levels of total lipids, HOMA (Homelengs Model for the Assessment of Peripheral Insulin Resistance), and increased levels of the triglycerides (a high levels of triglycerides may suggest an insulin resistance), which can be a clue towards the diagnosis of diabetes mellitus, type 2. The insulin resistance may be the result of a decrease in insulin sensitivity in muscles and fat stores that is caused by adipose tissue accumulation.

Anonymous Patient Answer

What does on-screen electronic alert usually treat?

Patients with moderate-to-severe type 2 diabetes and coronary artery disease who are treated after viewing an EAS do not have a statistically significant reduction in A1C. Patients without EAS treatment in this setting do not typically improve lipid levels or blood glucose control, despite the potential benefits of education campaigns and treatment of contraindications.

What are the latest developments in on-screen electronic alert for therapeutic use?

Given that the primary objective for ECA has become improving patient management there is an obvious need to consider the different requirements for ECA with different diagnoses. A common recommendation which will ensure ECA will be adequately implemented is the need for evidence for the effectiveness of ECA. This will need to be a focus of further study.

How does on-screen electronic alert work?

There are no significant differences in the use of HbA1c-related diabetes care interventions between diabetes patients receiving electronic alerting or controls. We believe the technology is well designed and works.

Anonymous Patient Answer

Is on-screen electronic alert typically used in combination with any other treatments?

In clinical trials and practice, on-screen electronic alert combined with regular visits and pharmacological treatments has been employed to help patients manage their diabetes, in particular to improve blood glucose levels and blood lipid levels. Nevertheless, it is prudent that patients need to carefully consider the cost implications and additional risks of such an alert. The alert system can be a valuable tool to help patients keep a careful track of their blood glucose and blood lipid levels, and enhance their chance of reaching the aim set by their clinician.
