Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a group of metabolic disorders, whose main common feature is the presence of high concentrations of glucose in the blood persistently or chronically, due to either a defect in the production of insulin, a resistance to the action of it to use glucose, an increase in the production of glucose or a combination of these causes. It is also accompanied by abnormalities in the metabolism of lipids, proteins, mineral salts and electrolytes. Diabetes is associated with the appearance of complications in many organic systems, the most evident being the loss of vision that can lead to blindness, compromise of the kidneys with progressive functional deterioration, requiring dialysis and transplantation, the compromise of blood vessels that can mean the loss of lower extremities (see diabetic vasculopathy), the involvement of the heart with coronary disease and acute myocardial infarction, cerebral compromise and of intestinal irrigation; however, the most prevalent complications affect the peripheral and autonomic nervous system. All this means a very heavy burden for the patient who suffers and for the entire public health system.
The reasons why Alzheimer's is a priority. 1. They are diseases of high frequency. Public health.2. Increasing prevalence. 3. They are high impact diseases. 5. High impact on public opinion. "I fear losing my head more than dying" 6. Access to diagnosis and insufficient treatment. 7. Access to diagnosis and treatment is not equitable.If these reasons do not convince of the urgency to act against Alzheimer's, think of ourselves, of our future but, above all, of our children: if today we do not do anything, the most likely thing is that they will also have to carry alone and in silence the weight and the pain of taking care of us, when our minds begin to abandon us.
