November 2018.- Aysena's superintendency calls on the population to learn about the benefits and benefits that AUGE GES provides to people diagnosed with diabetes within the international day of the disease.
Regional Agent Aysén, Elizabeth Vergara, first advised that through a professional counseling refer to the type of diabetes that a person is suffering from: "We invite users to first learn, through professional counseling, the type of diabetes you know before you know the benefit that GES grants. There are two types of coverage specific characteristics for each of them ".
Type 1 diabetes is characterized by persistently high levels of blood glucose, a product that destroys pancreas cells, resulting in absolute insulin deficiency and vital dependence on exogenous insulin. It has been identified because it can be present at any age, with classic symptoms such as abnormal increase in thirst (Polydipsia), increased urinary excretion (polyuria), abnormal increase in food demand (Polyphagia), fast changing weight loss, or diabetic ketoacidosis characterized by dehydration and various degrees of conscience. Children are often deprived of heavy ketoacidosis.
Type 2 diabetes is characterized by a persistently high blood glucose level, an insulin resistance product, usually followed by a relative insulin deficiency. It was found not to be very symptomatic, which occurs mainly in adulthood, so its diagnosis was made in about 50% of the cases by laboratory tests requested for another cause, not clinical suspicions. Inadequate classical symptomatology determines that it is diagnosed with high frequency late and in the presence of chronic complications. This type of diabetes increases with age, overweight / obesity and physical inactivity, which is commonly associated with other high cardiovascular risk pathologies such as hypertension and dyslipidemia.
Both types of diabetes have different approaches and ability to guarantee:
In the case of Diabetes 1, all users with suspected Diabetes Type 1 changes will have access to a diagnostic certificate of the specialist within 7 days. In case of decompensation, within 30 minutes of the Medical Assistance Examination of the Emergency Department, you will have access to the diagnostic certificate by using the blood glucose test. On the other hand, the beginning of treatment of both cases should be performed within 24 hours of the diagnosis.
In case of diabetes 2, all users suspected of type 2 diabetes with elevated blood glucose levels will have access to diagnostic confirmation within 45 days. On the other hand, the onset of treatment must be done within 24 hours of the diagnosis. In cases requiring specialist attention to medical indications, this must be done within 90 days of referral.
