The chief freelance endocrinologist of the Ministry of Health, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Ivan Dedov said that every five seconds in the world one person develops diabetes mellitus. Reported by RIA Novosti. According to the doctor, this disease is the most dangerous challenge to the modern world community. Dedov said that every 7 seconds in the world one person dies from diabetes mellitus, and every 30 seconds he is doomed to amputation. The expert also clarified that the list does not end there - it also has a stroke, myocardial infarction, complete kidney blockade. However, Dedov stressed that every second patient with non-insulin dependent diabetes (type 2) does not even know about his diagnosis, which does not give experts the opportunity to assess the exact extent of the disease. "For 2019 - 463 million people. We have 8.3," Dedov concluded. Earlier, the health department noted that patients with diabetes are at risk for coronavirus. The endocrinologist said that a person of a venerable age, overweight and with diabetes, is more difficult to tolerate hypoxia, physical activity, and is more susceptible to infections.
