CRITERIA FOR DIAGNOSIS OF DM Symptoms of DM plus RBS > 200mg/dl (11.1mmol/L) FBS >126mg/dl (7.0 mmol/dl) Two – hour – blood sugar > 200mg/dl (11.1mmol/L) during an OGTT
C. DIABETES MELLITUS - one of the leading causes of disability in persons over 45. - Chronic disorder of carbo. / protein / fats metabolism. – char. By imbalance bet. Insulin & demand. Normal blood sugar 70-100 mg/dl - More than half of Diabetic patients will die of coronary heart disease.
D. CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DSE.
Characterized by airflow limitation
Major cause of chronic morbidity and mortality and the 4th leading cause throughout the world.
Usually due to chronic bronchitis & emphysema
Cigarette smoking is the primary cause – COPD
Cough, sputum production, or dyspnea
Diagnoses is confirmed by SPIROMETRY.
Oxygen at 1 to 3 L even if hypoxia is severe.
Phlebotomy to reduce blood volume if hematocrit (PCV – M: 40-54% F: 36-47%) is more than 60%; also to reduce cardiac workload.
E. Bronchial Asthma
Inflammatory disorder of the airways – airway hyperresponsiveness.
Intrinsic and extrensic
Other forms triggers are irritant gases & smoke house dust-mite found in pillows, mattresses, carpets; respiratory infection, inhaled allergens, weather changes, cold air, exercise, certain foods, additives and drugs.
Promote exclusive BF as long as possible; early introduction to cow’s milk may predispose baby to allergies and predispose asthma.
Through blood transfusion Through sharing of unsterilized needles Through sexual Intercourse R.Fx – HBeAg + Mother, Multiple partners Eliminate HB before 2012 (a western Regional Goal)
A. Diseases of the Heart and Blood Vessels (Cardiovascular Diseases) Hypertension - sustained elevation in mean arterial blood pressure - a major risk factor for development of CVD’s like coronary heart disease and stroke. - classified into primary and secondary
Primary HPN – It has no definite cause: essential HPN or Idiopathic HPN – 90% of all hypertensives have primary HPN Secondary HPN – the result of some other primary diseases leading to HPN: such renal dses. P. HPN – more common. Cause is unknown, HPN is attributed to Atherosclerosis.
RISK FACTORS: Obesity - Risk for hypertension is two times greater among overweight / obese persons compared to people of normal weight, and three times more than that of underweight persons. - Increased waist to hip ratio is more associated with hypertension
2. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) - caused by impaired coronary blood flow, known as Ischemic Heart Disease. - when there is a decreased oxygen supply to the heart muscles, chest pain (called angina) occurs. - CAD can cause M.I (Heart Attack) arrhythmias, heart failure, and sudden death. - Atherosclerosis – high levels of cholesterol in the blood. (low density lipoproteins / LDL – bad cholesterol)
Smoking Tobacco – Risk of CAD is 70 – 200 times greater for men who smoke.
3. Cerebrovascular Disease or Stroke Stroke – results from insufficient supply of blood to the brain. If blood is obstructed for more than several minutes, injury to brain cells becomes permanent and tissue dies in the affected region resulting in cerebral infarction. Most fatal stroke is due to Intracerebral Hemorrhage – rupture of IC B.vessel.
Risk Factors of Stroke Increasing age Sex Hereditary Hypertension Cigarette Smoking Diabetes Mellitus Heart Diseases High Red Blood Cell Count
The use of oral contraceptives combined with cigarette smoking (nicotine and carbon monoxide) greatly increase stroke risk. People with diabetes often also high cholesterol and overweight.
B. CANCER - it is not a single disease. - the immune system seems to play a role in development and spread of cancer.
Chemicals and Environmental Agents: Polycyclic Hydrocarbons Aflatoxin – Peanuts and peanut butter Benzopyrene – charcoaled broiled or smoked, reusing cooking oil Nitrosamines – from food preservatives; like tocino, longganisa, bacon and hotdogs Virus – cervical (human papilloma virus) liver cancer (hepatitis B virus) certain leukemias, lymphomas and nasopharyngeal cancer (Epstein – Barr Virus)
Lung Cancer Oral Cancer Laryngeal Cancer Bladder Cancer Renal Cancer Cervical Cancer Esophageal Cancer 8. Breast Cancer 9. Prostate Cancer 10. Liver Cancer 11. Skin Cancer 12. Colonic Cancer 13. Uterine / Endometrial Cancer
A moderate or marked increase in RBC count is a risk factor for stroke. The reason is that more RBC thicken the blood and make clots more likely. This present in persons with CHD. Prevent thrombus formation in RHD and arrhythmias with appropriate medications.
Seasons and Climate Socio Economic Factors Excessive Alcohol Intake Certain kind of drug abuse
Thrombotic Stroke – Thrombi Embolic Stroke – Emboli (a moving blood clot usually from a thrombus in the left heart that becomes lodged in a small artery. Hemorrhagic Stroke
