On March 24th (March 23rd), the public welfare project of “National Sugar Control” was officially launched during the “2021 Big Health Industry Expo (Chongqing) and the 6th Double Pin Hub”, aiming to make more people pay attention to their own health status and help the public to do a good job in the prevention and treatment of diabetes by popularizing the knowledge of diabetes and complications.
The situation of diabetes mellitus in China is grim, and the prevention and treatment is urgent
The ninth edition of the diabetes map released by the International Diabetes Federation points out that there are 463 million diabetics in the world, and the Chinese population accounts for one quarter of the total number of diabetics in the world, about 120 million, which is equivalent to one in every 10 adults. Diabetes has become a major public health problem in China. Moreover, diabetes “reserve army” is huge. There are about 400 million people with pre-diabetes in China. If there is no timely intervention, this part of people may develop into diabetes patients in the next few years.
While the prevalence of diabetes is high in China, there are also problems such as low awareness rate, low treatment rate and low treatment rate of diabetes. According to the latest national diabetes epidemiological survey published online in the international authoritative medical journal BMJ, the awareness rate of diabetes in China was only 43.3%, the treatment rate was 49%, and the treatment rate reached the standard was 49.4%. Multidimensional data show that the situation of diabetes prevention and treatment in China is grim.
The person in charge of the “National Sugar Control” project said that the lack of scientific knowledge about diabetes, the lack of common sense of rational drug use and poor medication compliance among diabetics were one of the reasons for the unsatisfactory situation of diabetes prevention and treatment.
Diabetes is, in fact, preventable and treatable. With the continuous progress of medical development, it has gradually become a consensus in China’s medical circle to give full play to the advantages of integrated Chinese and Western medicine in the prevention and treatment of diabetes. In the Guidelines for Prevention and Treatment of Type 2 Diabetes in China, it is clearly proposed that “Oral Jinlida Granules should be added to the treatment of both Qi and Yin deficiency of type 2 diabetes on the basis of poor efficacy of metformin alone”. Chinese and western medicine combined application, not only can promote the secretion of insulin, restore islet beta cell function, improve the insulin resistance, control blood sugar, can significantly improve the clinical symptom such as thirsty, fatigue, constipation, prevent the happening of the complications and slow development, to improve insulin secretion disorders in patients with diabetes and reduce blood sugar has positive significance.
To help prevent and control diabetes, the public welfare project of “national sugar control” was launched
“Diabetes itself is not terrible, as long as the public to improve their awareness of health care, early prevention, early detection, early treatment, active treatment, we can win a healthy life. To achieve this goal, all sectors of society need to work together to popularize knowledge about diabetes and rational drug use in a long-term and sustained way.” “Said the director of the” National Sugar Control “project.
To appeal to attach importance to the prevention and treatment of diabetes, ridge pharmaceutical eed diabetes management center, tianjin to the national launch of thousands of clinical experts, and community pharmacy chains “universal control sugar” project, through the integration of the clinical specialist academic science popularization resources, popularize knowledge of prevention and control of diabetes in the form of rich activities, help people to enjoy a healthy life.
The activity will rely on the national clinical expert resources to train diabetes managers for chain pharmacies, to help community pharmacies better serve diabetes patients and effectively improve their professional service level of diabetes. At the same time, the activity will also go to communities and chain drugstores, through health testing, free health diagnosis, health education and other forms, let more people know their health status, scientific prevention and treatment of diabetes, avoid diabetes or complications caused by diabetes, and build a line of defense for the prevention and treatment of diabetes and the protection of people’s health.
