Prague – Over the past 10 years, 15% of diabetic patients have been treated, and last year almost 930,000 have been treated. Others do not yet know about the diagnosis. Treatment for this patient is about 13% of total medical costs and on average 53,000 crowns per patient. Today's information was announced at a press conference of the Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association (Czech Republic) on World Diabetes Day, celebrated on November 14th.
About 90% of people with diabetes have a second type of diabetes, and the other half has an unhealthy lifestyle. According to Marty Klement's diabetes mellitus, DiaVize's diabetes director, 30 minutes of physical activity, including walking or gardening, reduces the risk of diabetes by one-third.
In the case of type 2 diabetes, the body has surplus insulin that can not be released as quickly as the patient needs. Also, their insulin does not work as it is, resulting in so-called insulin resistance.
Last year, some 33 billion crown cures were used to treat second – rate diabetes in the Czech Republic, and a total of about $ 300 billion was spent on health care. If the number of people with diabetes increases at the same rate as before, the Czech population will suffer in 2035. "Continuous growth will be unrealistic over time," Klement added.
Patients usually take about 4 diabetes, blood pressure, or about 4 high cholesterol. "If you do not follow your diet, blood sugar levels can not become standard, so you do not take 10 drugs together," he said. He said that the cost of the patient and his lifestyle is much lower and more effective than healing. More than one third of them do not follow doctors' care.
The Czech Diabetesology Society supports patient education. Studies show that group therapy is more effective than individual conversation with patients. According to Clement, health insurance companies will be paying the bill next year. "The problem is bringing the patient there, but when the patient comes back, he visits more often than regular checks," he added.
Patients who change their lifestyle can achieve such improvements, so they do not have to take many medicines and become cheaper in the healthcare system. Martin Mátl, Director of ČAFF, is working to reduce the cost of public health insurance by introducing so-called generic medicines, the first copies of medicines that conclude patent protection. The example is a drug for merformin used by most diabetics. Over the past decade, generics have stored 3.7 billion crowns, according to Math.
In addition, diabetics not only treat the symptoms directly related to diabetes, they also suffer from chronic complications such as heart disease and kidney failure. The risk of stroke increases diabetes 2-4 times, 5 times with an infarction, heart failure or coronary artery disease.
