This is the forefront now in medicine, Manay. Diabetes is so rampant in the United States.

And this simple deficiency in the body's ability to produce insulin or have receptors to react to insulin, that it leads to a host of diseases secondary to diabetes.

I will update this stats.

The most common COD (cause of death) for people who have diabetes is:

CVD (cardiovascular disease): IHD, CHF, MI, Pulmonary Emboli, Cerebrovascular Emboli etc.

IHD= ischemic heart disease
CHF = Chronic heart failure/Congestive heart failure
MI = Myocardial Infarct

undiagnosed yet they know they have diabetes? and there are 5.7m of them?
hangtud dili maundang ang pagpanaugdaug ug pagtamak sa katungod sa atong mga ultimong mamumuo, dili mapakgang ang reklamo batok sa pagpanaugdaug nga kapitalista ug abusadong naglingkod sa atong gobyerno! unsa pa man inyong gipaabot?

That refers to estimate, in this case, Jas. That estimate, inmho, is inaccurate, i would guess more are undiagnosed with it.

One doctor told me before that the moment you're diagnosed with diabetes, you're at least 5 years late. Tinuod na Enz?

signs and symptoms from american diabetes association;


Although there is no well-defined cause for diabetes, it has been observed that genetics and other factors, like, lack of physical activity, obesity, etc, are found to be behind this disease. The following are the signs and symptoms of diabetes mellitus.

    * The most common symptoms of diabetes mellitus are polyuria (passage of large volumes of urine) and polydipsia (increased thirst and excessive fluid intake). As far as Type I diabetes is concerned, the affected people start developing symptoms within weeks or months, but in case of Type II diabetes, the symptoms develop in a very slow manner. In some people affected with Type II diabetes, the symptoms may not be severe enough to detect the disease or symptoms may be completely absent.
    * Another symptom of Type I diabetes is rapid and unexplained weight loss and lethargy. People affected by Type II diabetes may not experience weight loss.
    * Glycosuria (glucose in urine) and polyuria, may cause some other conditions, like, dehydration and polyphagia, a condition where the person experiences a significant increase in appetite.
    * If left untreated, the disease may lead to blurred vision, which is almost rapid in people with Type I diabetes, but develops in a very gradual manner in those with Type II diabetes.
    * Another complication of this disease is diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), a condition, wherein the person experiences polyuria, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. This condition is characterized by a smell of acetone in the breath, a deep breathing pattern called Kussmaul breathing and lethargy. In severe cases, the patient may slip into coma and eventually, death may follow. Normally, this condition is mostly found in people affected with Type I diabetes. In case of any such symptoms, the patient must be hospitalized at the earliest.
    * Another severe symptom associated with diabetes but mainly experienced by patients of Type II diabetes is hyperosmolar nonketotic state. This condition is very rare and is caused by dehydration.
    * Infections of skin, bladder and vaginal areas are more commonly found in people affected by diabetes.

Diabetes mellitus is a very complicated disease, which can lead to nerve damage, kidney failure, atherosclerosis, blindness, stroke, heart disease, etc. Hence, it is imperative to control the disease

I guess it depends on the severity and how long you have been undiagnosed with diabetes. Diabetes, if untreated and undiagnosed can mask many diseases.

You see, when a patient is suffering from diabetes (either type 1 = infantile/juvenile form due to the loss of pancreatic b-cells by autoimmune factors), and (type 2 = adult form, has great pro-genetic affinity, meaning has genetic passover, related to size, ethnic background, eating habits, smoking habits, etc).

If a patient has cardiovascular problems, meaning has hypertension, occlusion, has emphysema and has any problems that require him/her to take medication, having diabetes can actually mask the side effects and clinical symptoms of some of these conditions, that can become life threatening.

For example, one of the effects of diabetes, especially if it is undiagnosed, is PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY. Peripheral neurapathy is wen the distal limbs become numb due to the weakening of the plexus of nerves distal to the thoracodorsal region of the body because of diabetes. This can also mean numbness on our arms, and fingertips and faces.
Now, a person who has cardiovascular problems will know that he or she has a heart attack/ and or having one because of strong chest pain, and numbing feeling on the left arm that radiates to the back. So a person who is having these symptoms will know they are having a heart attack and thus call for help and thus be saved.

However, if a patient is an undiagnosed diabetic, he will feel no chest pain or numbing of the arms, fingers, and back when they have a heart attack because this is secondary to the peripheral neuropathy that is caused by the DIABETES, undiagnosed.
And thus, will die of MI or some kind of CVD.

~~

Luckily we can screen patients by their sugar levels, glucose and glucagon levels, their heating habits, and thus implement therapy on that basis. If a patient is pre-diabetic we can implement oral hypoglycemic drugs to reduce glucose levels and thus effectively prevent the onset of full-blow diabetes and its effects.

And if a patient is diabetic, we can prevent the ill effects of the disease by staying on the medication regimen by taking ultralente, lente, glibobizides, and any other diabetic drugs, religiously. So as to maintain insulin homeostasis.

Because, in the end, the MOA of the disease (mechanism of action) is a deviation of proper INSULIN production and reception.

So we treat this disease and we prevent it from affecting other systems by: maintaining insulin levels and prevent and warning the patient from doing HIGH RISK lifestyles such as:

1. Evade high fatty food
2. Cessation of smoking
3. Cessation of high drinking
4. Implementing an exercise regimen



~~

Any disease, Father, is preventable. And any disease can be treated, medication is out there. In the end, how it affects the patient is secondary to how the patient is responsible in taking their medication and implementing a lifestyle change.

I hope that explained your question.




Yours In Christ,
Bran

After adjusting for population age differences, 2004-2006 national survey data for people diagnosed with diabetes, aged 20 years or older include the following prevalence by race/ethnicity:

    * 6.6% of non-Hispanic whites
    * 7.5% of Asian Americans

That is why diabetes is called a silent killer... you hardly notice any symptom, but it's progressively eating you up. Or your extremities.  Huh!

Yes, indeed, Father. This is the disease that affects all types. People that are thin, big, tall, short, those who exercise, smokers, drinkers etc.
We just have to keep everything stable by taking medication religiously. As well as going to church religiously (hehehehe!)
