November 14 is World Diabetes Day, where everyone is called to be concerned about the risk of diabetes. Clinic Pyramid Expert advises on activities needed to conduct free glucose testing during the period of Diabetes Day 14.00-17.00 at the Central Market Route Pavilion and reduce the risk of disease.
"The clinic pyramid specialists have generally done 7,400 free cholesterol and glucose tests, and the welfare department project of Riga City Council We are a healthy Riga! "The event organizer says.
In the clinic, 35 percent of pyramid-free glucose tests showed increased glucose levels, while cholesterol levels showed a 60 percent increase in free cholesterol.
"Diabetes is a chronic disease that is characterized by an increase in the amount of sugar in the blood (glucose)." Glucose is one of the body's main energy sources. The most important risk factor is the diagnosis of diabetes. Increased sugar levels have a negative effect on blood vessels, eyes, nervous system and kidney function, and there are sensations of tingling, weight loss, frequent urination, thirst, blurred vision and bad wound healing However, low levels of sugar have a negative impact on the brain, and in this situation an energy crisis occurs, with symptoms such as depression, memory and concentration. "
Experts say that elevated blood cholesterol is also a risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 70 percent of the population aged 25-74 have increased cholesterol levels.
"If you have an older blood test, your total cholesterol level (less than 5 mmol / l), triglycerides, ABH (cholesterol) is over 1.0 mmol / l, ZBH (bad cholesterol) is less than 3.0 mmol / l The cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood reflect changes in the body's fatty substances. In blood tests, blood glucose levels indicate blood glucose levels. Before eating (fasting), normal blood glucose levels are 3.3-6.0 mmol / l. "
The doctor says it is important to apply for a GP that will make the appointments necessary for the specialist and develop an appropriate treatment program if the blood tests do not match blood glucose or cholesterol levels. Self medication may cause more damage to your body.
Cholesterol itself is very valuable to the body because it performs some essential functions at the cellular level. Cholesterol is the lipid or fat that is responsible for the formation of hormones and is responsible for the formation of cells in cells and nerve cells. Cholesterol plays a very important role in normal metabolism. Most cholesterol, even up to 90%, forms the body itself, but experts point out that cholesterol ingested by food is only about 10%.
They emphasize that health problems arise in situations where the body's self-regulation process is disturbed and overloaded. "Over time, changes occur in the body and too much cholesterol is being developed or reduced, and to avoid high cholesterol levels, you need to eat two basic principles of healthy living: physical activity and healthy food. Must be moderate but regular, and the menu should contain more vegetable oil, fish, and vegetables. "
