As of 2010, the number of diabetics was listed at 3.4 million, and at the rate cases are increasing, that figure could be 6.16 million in 2030, representing a prevalence rate of 7.7 percent to 8.9 percent, said the experts.
According to a fact sheet, diabetes is “a serious, lifelong disease and is a disorder of metabolism — the way our body uses the food we eat for growth and energy.” This condition is commonly known as having high glucose or sweetness in the blood.
Diabetes, however, is associated with long-term complications like blindness, heart and blood vessel disease, kidney failure, amputation of limbs, nerve damage, and stroke.
There are two kinds of diabetes — Type 1, which is more triggered by genetic predisposition; Type 2 which is associated with lifestyle and gestational diabetes, a condition that affects pregnant women during pregnancy. Type 2 diabetes accounts for 90 percent of all cases in the Philippines.
Dr. Elizabeth Paz-Pacheco, former president of the Philippine Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism, underscored the need to mitigate the effects of diabetes by focusing on prevention and proper management of cases. She added that lifestyle change and adherence to medication must be observed to prevent complications of diabetes. “It’s really basically lifestyle modification. We encourage our patients to watch what they eat and to work on something that they will do regularly,” she said.
