The risk of diabetes type two is greatly increased by lifestyle factors such as; overweight, lack of exercise, poor diet and high blood pressure. http://www.diabetesaustralia.com.au/Understanding-Diabetes/What-is-Diabetes/Type-2-Diabetes/#Managing Type 2 Diabetes. 2. a) What are the three main aims when treating Tom (a newly diagnosed diabetic). • Ensure Tom maintains a healthy low carbs, sugar free diet. • Encourage Tom to exercise more frequently.
Some of the complications are as follow: Heart attack and stroke occur 2 to 4 times more frequently in persons with diabetes than in those without the disease. Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death in adults with diabetes. Inadequately controlled hypertension and dyslipidemia are 2 comorbidities that contribute to the development of coronary artery disease (CAD) and stroke. It is well recognized that lipid disorders and hypertension also occur in children with diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is an independent risk factor for CAD, hypertension, and dyslipidemia.]
According to the CDC, 50% of African American women, 40% of Mexican women, and 30% of Caucasian women are obese and therefore at risk for development of type 2 diabetes. Improved screening and education strategies are necessary in reversing the trend of this devastating chronic disease. Morbidity and Mortality “In the United States, an estimated 7% of the population, (20.8 million people), have diabetes mellitus; 14.6 million people have been diagnosed and 6.2 million remain undiagnosed. In addition, approximately 41 million Americans have prediabetes, which may eventually lead to a clinical diagnosis of diabetes,” (DISEASEDEX, 2012). In 2009, diabetes was the cause of death in 150 women in Allegheny County alone, (PA Department of Health, 2009).
Chronic Disease Risk Assessment Essay I have recently taken the chronic disease risk assessment on our school website on diabetes. After completing the assessment and reading the assessment I was given some pretty good pointers about the situation we put our body in from bad eating habits. Diabetes being a high risk factors for anyone who is overweight or anyone who may have this terrible disease that has plagued people over the last few years. And I do mean plagued, it seems as obesity rises in percentages that so does diabetes. There are two different types of diabetes that the world population deals and suffers with.
As well as the teaching requirements from the case study with two measurable learning objectives from each of the domains (cognitive, affective, and psychomotor), and the psychosocial challenges that Angelo encounters. Incidence of Diabetes in the United States Diabetes is increasing worldwide, including seeing an earlier increased onset of type two diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, almost 26 million Americans have diabetes, including greater than 10% of the total adult population and over 25% of the population 65 and older. The majority of the 26 million have type two diabetes and almost one million Americans suffer from type one diabetes (Fronseca, Kirkman, Darsow, & Ratner, 2012). Presenting Signs of Diabetes Typical signs of diabetes include excessive thirst (polydipsia), excessive urination (polyuria), or excessive hunger (polyphagia).
Fifteen million people suffer from type II diabetes according to the American Diabetes Association (Leung 1). Upon receiving the diagnosis, these victims must surrender to the disease. Type II diabetes can lead to many other unhealthy reactions, such as heart attacks, and kidney failure (Owens 46). Some government officials are trying to take away the physical education children are receiving that can help them understand correct ways to exercise, and in becoming more aware of their eating habits (Leung 1). Without proper health education and the formation of good habits while young, the current generation will end up with a high probability of developing type II diabetes in their later years.
People who are obese are more likely to have health problems such as: high blood pressure, raised cholesterol high insulin levels, impaired glucose tolerance, type two diabetes, heart attacks, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, kidney problems and polycystic ovary syndrome. Not all children will have these health problems but doctors are finding these problems in children and the children are getting younger. As a whole childhood obesity puts children in harm’s way and the future of America. And that is why the cycle must be reversed. We owe to the country and the kids who live
2.01 Reflections Assessment 1. • “41 million Americans are estimated to have pre-diabetes. Most people with pre-diabetes develop type 2 diabetes within 10 years, unless they make changes to their diet and physical activity that results in a loss of about 5-7 percent of their body weight.” – That is a very large number of Americans to have pre- diabetes, it’s scary to think that so many people are overweight and not working out. I’m concerned about this because like in the other facts, obesity and diabetes can cause you to die at a young age and that is a lot of people to have such a high risk. • “Only 28 percent of students in grades 9 through 12 participated in daily school physical education in 2003, down from 42 percent in 1991.” – This is sad but I can also agree that this is 100% true.
Lifestyle and Diseases 生活習慣と病気 1 Lifestyle As countries develop, become more industrialized and people live longer, lifestyle becomes a major factor for chronic diseases -- including obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, dementia, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and depression (slide 1). As life expectancy increased by 30 years in the 20th century in developed countries, the major causes of death changed from infection to chronic diseases. Behavioral patterns are the major determinant of health, and they contribute to premature death (slide 2). The available health care system also has a significant impact on premature death, even in developed countries. For example, because people who lack health insurance are unable
Diabetes Case study Diabetes is a growing epidemic in adolescents, especially in their second decade of life when their production or resistance to insulin is at its highest. Obesity and lack of exercise are believed to be the biggest causes of diabetes, but children with a family history of diabetes have a greater risk of developing it (Rosenbloom, Silverstein, Amemiya, Zetler, Lingensmith, 2009). In this paper the subject of diabetes will be discussed in relation to Jenna Riley a 14 year-old girl who is overweight and spends much of her time sedentary. Jenna struggles to eat healthy and often eats what her friends do. Jenna lives with her mother and younger brother who she often looks after when her mother is at work.
