November 2018 Health monitoring of Aysén invites people to get acquainted with the AUGE GES protection and benefits to people diagnosed with diabetes mellitus during the international day of the disease.
Aysene Regional Agent Elizabeth Vergara first advised in professional counseling to find out what type of diabetes a person suffers: "We call on users through professional counseling to first know what kind of diabetes they are suffering before they know the benefits of GES. There are two ways , the coverage of which has specific characteristics for each of them. "
Type 1 diabetes is characterized by persistent high blood sugar, a product of destroying pancreatic cells that results in a complete insulin deficiency and is vitally dependent on exogenous insulin. It has been identified as it can occur at any age with classical symptoms such as abnormal increases in thirst (Polydipsia), increased urinary output (polyuria), abnormal growth (Polyphagia), rapid weight loss, or diabetic ketoacidosis characterized by dehydration and different levels of consciousness commitment. Children are often debited with severe ketoacidosis.
Type 2 diabetes is characterized by persistent high blood sugar, an insulin resistance product, usually seen with a relative insulin deficiency. It is considered to be not very symptomatic, which is mainly in the adult population, so its diagnosis is performed in about 50% of cases with laboratory tests that are required for reasons other than clinical suspicion. Unsuccessful classical symptomatology suggests that it is diagnosed with high frequency in the presence of late and chronic complications. This type of diabetes increases with age, overweight / obesity and physical inactivity, which is usually associated with other high-risk cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension and dyslipidaemia.
Both types of diabetes have different access and opportunity guarantees:
For Diabetic 1, all recipients suspected of having type 1 diabetes mellitus will be able to receive diagnostic confirmation from a specialist with a change of test within 7 days. In cases of suspected decompensation, you will be given a diagnostic confirmation with your blood glucose test within 30 minutes of your doctor's assistance. In turn, treatment should be initiated in both cases within 24 hours of diagnosis.
In the case of diabetes, all recipients who have type 2 diabetes mellitus with high blood glucose will receive diagnostic confirmation within 45 days. On the other hand, treatment should begin within 24 hours of diagnosis. In cases where a specialist draws attention to a medical indication, this must be done within 90 days of submission.
