A public health impact of Cardiovascular Menace in patient with Diabetes - Dr, Sushant Sud
The public health impact of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with diabetes is already enormous and is increasing. Abundant evidence shows that patients with DM-I or DM-II are at high risk for several cardiovascular disorders like coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral arterial disease, cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure. Diabetes confers a high risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and requires aggressive management of all cardiovascular risk factors. It is estimated that the total number of people with diabetes will rise from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million by 2030 and number of adults with hypertension will increase by 60% to a total of 1.56 billion people by 2025. Cardiovascular disease is responsible for 65-75% deaths in people with diabetes. The reason being that DM-II shares several risk factors with cardiovascular diseases. Modern system of medicine is successful in preventing diseases of infective origin but they have not been successful in preventing lifestyle diseases alone with it. Ayurved treatment focuses on an entire change in the lifestyle of the person and thus is foremost in prevention and management of lifestyle disorders. A unique combination of food (Aahar), exercise (Vihar), and herbs (Aushadhi) can help alleviate the symptoms and develop good health in people with CVD along with diabetes. This research paper aims at reviewing co morbidity between diabetes mellitus (madhumeha) and cardiovascular risks associated with it.
3 main learning objectives of the presentation:
1. Understand the epidemiology of risk factors associated with cardiovascular outcomes in people with diabetes
2. Discuss the evidence base for lifestyle interventions w.s.r. to Ayurved in people with diabetic CVDs.
3. Heart failure and ischemic heart disease is common comorbidity in diabetes and patients with both conditions have a particularly poor prognosis- Understanding the facts.
