Alarming Statistics: The Reality of Diabetes in Mexico and How to Prevent It Effectively

Diabetes in Mexico is a leading cause of death, potentially ranking as the second deadliest disease after heart-related illnesses. Approximately 107,000 Mexicans have succumbed to this condition, with numbers rising, especially in cities like Tabasco and Tlaxcala.

While over 107,000 deaths in Mexico are attributed to diabetes, 4 million individuals have been diagnosed with the disease. Nearly 10% of Mexican adults are diagnosed with diabetes. Over 30% are at risk of developing this condition or are in a prediabetic state.

Diabetes incidence tends to increase after age 50. Predominantly affecting people in Nuevo León, Veracruz, Tamaulipas, San Luis Potosí, and Durango.

Efforts through various campaigns focusing on proper diets, physical activity, and weight loss have had moderate success, showing significant results after two decades of effort and reducing risks by up to 43%.

Rising Diabetes Cases in the 21st Century

The 21st century has seen a drastic increase in diabetes cases and related deaths, from an estimated 900,000 in the 1990s to over 1.5 million deaths in 2012. Nearly 2.3 million more in the following years. Currently, around 440 million people worldwide are diagnosed with diabetes, highlighting a global awareness of the condition. Despite the possibility of control and eradication, many refuse to alter their dietary habits and sugar intake, disturbingly affecting humanity at large.

The mortality rate for individuals with diabetes seems to escalate after age 50. More than 3.7 million of those mentioned died at an age not close to 45. Primarily due to Diabetes Mellitus and, in isolated cases, Gestational Diabetes.

In terms of exact mortality statistics, Diabetes Mellitus is more prevalent in the United States, ranking as the country with the highest death rate from diabetes.

Diabetes Around the World (Diabetes in Mexico)

Globally, the Eastern Mediterranean region exhibits the highest incidence of diabetes due to high sugar intake and diets rich in spices leading to hypertension and the onset of Mellitus. Following the Middle East, America has seen a significant rise in diabetes cases since 1980…

America ranks as the second continent with the highest diabetes prevalence, followed by Asian countries, Europe, and finally Africa.

Diabetes, unlike many fatal diseases such as cancer, AIDS, or viruses, begins affecting individuals from the onset rather than evolving.

Causes and Impact of Diabetes

Untreated diabetes can cause significant damage, starting with vision problems…

Ulcers, particularly on the feet, may develop due to advanced diabetes, leading to potential amputation due to infection decreased resistance to cuts, and slower healing processes.

Moreover, diabetes can lead to heart problems due to hypertension and cholesterol issues, making the blood thicker due to insufficient insulin production by the pancreas, and possibly causing cerebrovascular damage.

Nerve damage from diabetes may cause unexplained tingling, burning, pain, or reduced sensitivity.

Sexual dysfunction, fatigue, and a constant sense of tiredness and weakness can also result from diabetes, affecting the pancreas and kidneys critically.

Gestational Diabetes can lead to mortality in babies and women and may cause irregular menstrual periods in non-pregnant women.

On a lesser scale, diabetes can lead to periods of dementia and depression.

Treatment and Prevention of Diabetes

Monitoring blood sugar levels with a glucometer and insulin injections are crucial first steps in managing diabetes, alongside diet, exercise, and self-control.
