Diabetes is frequently treated through diet, exercise, or medication, but many people also use other modalities, such as surgical procedures, endovascular treatments, and pharmaceutical therapies.
The treatment of Type 2 diabetes mellitus may improve some aspects of quality of life for patients. However, the majority of patients did not report improvement in either of the five QoL domains.
Clinical practice should focus on the early detection and treatment of vascular and retinal microvascular problems in patients with diabetes, not on the treatment of non-vascular conditions. Clinicians should adopt the concept of a 'treat-target-treat' approach instead of the traditional 'treat-treat-treat' approach.
Signs of diabetes mellitus, type 2 can be readily identifiable and may occur prior to diagnosis. In addition to the classic symptoms and signs of diabetes mellitus, such as hyperglycaemia, diabetes ketoacidosis and a random glucose measurement, signs of microalbuminuria can also be present.
There will be around 382,000 to 3,930,000 new cases of prediabetes, accounting for a 21.3%-53.8% prevalence in the US over the next 10 years. Diabetes was diagnosed in nearly 3.8 million (14.5% of the total population) in 2015. Diabetes accounted for about 11% of all cases of diabetes in 2015 in the US. Diabetic adults had higher annual expenditure for health than non-diabetic adults per year, both in total and for specific service utilization.
Diabetes mellitus, type 2 (DM-2) is a major chronic metabolic disease worldwide. It is a major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and blindness. DM-2 is characterized by impaired glucose tolerance or impaired fasting glucose and by chronic hyperglycemia or high blood glucose. In many developing countries, and particularly in Africa, DM-2 is the leading cause of diabetes-associated morbidities and mortality, causing an enormous global burden.
Diabetes mellitus, type 2, is a complex disease that has more than one etiological factor. Insulin resistance, the inability of the body to control blood sugar levels properly, appears to be a cause of this condition in 20%-25% of patients. Other causes of insulin resistance include obesity, aging, and decreased insulin sensitivity of the peripheral tissues such as those of the liver. Poor blood sugar control may be the result of an unknown combination of hereditary and acquired factors.
[Diabetes mellitus, type 2 is a chronic disease that is hard to reverse unless it is addressed and well controlled. Most patients do not have a target lifestyle or medication regimen that will help prevent this disease's progress and manage symptoms. However, lifestyle changes, medication, or both may reduce risks of complications of the disease, such as cardiovascular disease(heart disease and stroke), poor blood sugar and blood pressure control, amputations/foot ulcers, and vision loss. To manage [DMT2], patients can find treatments available from many [sources, including healthcare providers in your area, your caregiver, and from the American Diabetes Association at our website's support page.
Results from a recent paper, we identified that the use of medications for diabetes with anticytokine agents significantly improved survival in patients with diabetes compared with placebo, but not in patients with diabetes without anticytokine agents. Further investigation into possible mechanisms for this finding is warranted.
The presence of diabetes mellitus, type 2, does not necessarily increase the likelihood of presenting with atherogenic lipids or endothelial dysfunction. In an Asian population, there does seem to be a higher likelihood of diabetic patients with dyslipidemia, however, dyslipidemia does occur in diabetic mellitus, type 2, patients and is related to certain pathogenic factors. There is a lack of clinical evidence to support the use of any dietary, pharmacologic, or exercise treatments for dyslipidemia in diabetes mellitus, type 2.
Recent findings provide evidence that diabetes mellitus type 2 runs in families and that a single (or even a multiple) gene is responsible for the disease.
