2022-06-02: Changes at CareLink Personal
Due to changes in the output format at CareLink Personal the export files from there could no longer be imported cleanly into SiDiary.

We have therefore immediately made adjustments and provided a new update so that users can import their data correctly again.
If you are affected by this, you can undo the last import in SiDiary under the menu item "Edit ->Undo" and repeat the import with the new update to SiDiary version 6.2.1345.

Many greetings and have a nice Whitsun Weekend,
Your SiDiary Team Details

2021-04-06: SiDiary and Tidepool

With today's update we also created an import filter for files created with Tidepool-Online. If you don't know it yet: Tidepool is a nice alternative to read out your insulin pump if you don't want to use CareLink Personal or Diasend; it's worth a look: https://www.tidepool.org/.

You can then export this data into an Excel file and import it into SiDiary with the new import filter for Tidepool-Online.
Our colleague Jörg Möller likes to use it because it makes reading out his MiniMed 640G easier than with CareLink and the import looks much tidier than with a CareLink file.

Why don't you give it a try? All you need is a free account at Tidepool and a Chrome web browser.


2021-02-16: SiDiary and OmniPod Dash

With the last update to version 6.2.1341 SiDiary added the option to import data from the insulin pump "OmniPod Dash" into the SiDiary logbook.

You just have to connect the PDM via USB cable to the PC and choose the option "Export". In the Windows file explorer you will see the file "OmniPodDash.ibf" under "Android". This can then be copied to the PC and imported with the import filter "Insulet OmiPod Dash".


2021-02-05: Maintenance work on our servers
On Thursday, 2021-02-11, maintenance work on our servers will take place between 18:00 and probably 18:15 GMT. The service 'SiDiary Online' and our website will not be available during this time. We apologize for this. Details

2020-10-30: Favorites in SiDiary even easier

With the current version 6.2.1340 you can edit your favorites list for meter/file imports in SiDiary even easier. Just click on the asterisk next to an entry of your choice in the list of measurement devices to add or remove this device to your favorites. A hint: with the button "Edit list" you can also add or remove all devices from the list at once.

This new update also includes an adjustment to the new format of data from Medtronic CareLink. So if you have a MiniMed insulin pump, you should definitely do it.


2020-08-13: Maintenance work on our servers
On Thursday, 2020-08-20, maintenance work on our servers will take place between 18:00 and probably 18:15 GMT. The service 'SiDiary Online' and our website will not be available during this time. We apologize for this. Details

2020-03-30: New types of graphics: AGP and calendar

With the current version 6.2.1337 SiDiary brings you new graphic types in the statistics. You can now display the conventional AGP-graphic for the glucose profile or get a quick overview with the calendar graphic. Tip: you can also click on the calendar days.

With the practice code your doctor can give you, you can easily share your data with him in SiDiary Online, so that a printout for the next doctor visit is not necessary anymore.


2020-01-10: SiDiary 6: CGMS import simplified

With the current update from 09/01/2020 we have not only added many new blood glucose meters to SiDiary 6, but also simplified the import of files with CGMS/FGM data.

SiDiary now offers an auto-import folder for export files from CareLink, Dexcom, Eversense and Freestyle-Libre, i.e. if you put an export file from one of these devices into this folder (maybe directly while downloading this file) SiDiary will import it automatically.

Additionally SiDiary will also import it if you double click on this file. (Exception: Eversense, for this we can not offer a double click)


2019-11-14: Update for iOS/iPadOS: SiDiary 1.0.30

This update fixes a problem that occurred when using the SiDiary keyboard under iOS 13. You could already use the standard keyboard of iOS, but the keyboard adapted by us makes the data input more comfortable.

This is now available again and can be activated under "More ->Settings ->Keyboard" by deactivating the standard keyboard.


2019-11-08: SiDiary Version 6.2.1335
Maybe you have already seen it: the new version 6.2.1335 is currently available for download on our server.
Besides some minor optimizations (see changelog) new measuring devices have been connected to it: Ascensia Contour Plus, GlucoRX Nexus, Infopia Finetest Lite, Nipro 4sure One, Nipro 4sure Smart, Nipro 4sure Smart Duo, Nipro TRUEyou, Terumo Medisafe Fit und Terumo Medisafe Fit Smile. For the last two you need a Sony NFC pad on the PC to read them out. Details

2019-09-26: SiDiary Version 6.2.1334

With version 6.2.1334 a new function has been added to the selection list of the devices to be read out in addition to minor improvements and bug fixes (see Changelog).

Now you can not only make your favorites visible as before, you can also use a list of the last used devices or make a list of all devices visible with a button.


2019-08-21: Maintenance on our Servers
On Thursday, 08/22/2019, a maintenance job will be done on our servers between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm GMT. The service 'SiDiary Online' and the SiDiary website with the Onlineshop will not be available during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience. Details

2018-12-21: SiDiary 6.2 is ready for download
With the new major update (from version 6.1.x to 6.2.x), we have added many new evaluation options, especially for statistics. It is now possible to add further data sources to the graphic type "Glucose profile" for convenient evaluation: Carbs, Basal, Bolus, Excersise. The latter shows the percentage spread of times with and without sensors as well as the frequency and duration of times with low/very low glucose values. In addition, there is a pie chart of the glucose values in the target range ("Time in Range").

The direct print/PDF in the statistics has also been extended in such a way that the pages are optimally utilised depending on the number of graphics displayed.

And last but not least, SiDiary now also handles the new export format of LibreView.

2018-11-01: mylife YpsoPump & SiDiary
With the current version 6.1.1328 of SiDiary the mylife YpsoPump can now also be read via Bluetooth.
Correspondingly, the next extension of the detailed diary is also available: the daily basal profiles are now not only displayed graphically in the diary, but also the basal rates per hour in number form. This display is now freely scalable, so that everyone can set a size that is pleasantly readable for themselves. Details

2018-09-25: Maintenance on our Servers
On Thursday, 09/27/2018, a maintenance job will be carried out on our servers between 10:00 am and 12:00 am GMT. The service 'SiDiary Online' will not be available during this time. We apologize for any inconvenience. Details

2018-09-17: New meters and basal rates import
In our current update there is again something exciting: not only that we have added two new devices (the blood pressure monitor Beurer BM55 and the BG monitor Ypsomed mylife Unio Neva), we have also started to import the basal rates programmed in the pump into our basal rate management when reading out insulin pumps.
First only for the Ypsomed mylife Omnipod, but other pumps will be added over time. Details

2018-06-20: Dana Diabecare R & SiDiary

You may have already seen it: with the current update for SiDiary it is now possible to read out the pump "IME-DC Dana Diabecare R" with SiDiary via Bluetooth.
We have described how to connect the pump to Windows in a PDF file, which you can download here: <please click here>

This update also includes an import driver for the Accu-Chek Guide, so you can now read it without the Smart Pix software from Accu-Chek.

Also new is the import driver for the blood glucose meter MSP GlucoSmart Salsa and an import filter for the export files from the Ascensia Contour app.


2018-06-01: Maintenance work on our servers
On Monday, June 4, SiDiary Online and our website will be down from 10:00 to 12:00 due to server maintenance. Thank you for your understanding. Details

2018-05-24: SiDiary and Privacy Policy

As you have certainly heard in all media in the last few days, the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) will come into force on May 25th, 2018.

Since we have always given the highest priority to the special protection of the data entrusted to us anyway, we did not have to make any major changes. What we have had to change to comply with this regulation is our public data protection regulation and privacy policy.

To continue using "SiDiary Online" as before, your consent is required again at this point. Today, we will send an email to all users to indicate that.

All you need to do is log into your SiDiary Online account and agree to the new terms that will be displayed.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.


2018-05-16: Automatic recognition of meters

With this update SiDiary can now automatically detect even more devices and provide the import more quickly. These include for example the Beurer GL44, the Fora Diamond Mini USB and the Stada Glucoresult ToGo.

In addition, the devices Acon On Call Express, Testamed GlucoCheck Advance and Menarini GlucoMen areo 2K can now also be read out directly.


2018-01-05: SiDiary & Meters

With the current update to version 6.1.1319, new meters have been added in addition to minor modifications. The 'Ascensia Contour Next One', 'Ascensia Contour Next Link 2.4' and the 'eu-medical easypharm-GL' can now also be read out directly with SiDiary.

So now there are two solutions for the 'Contour Next Link 2.4': either just read out the blood glucose data directly from the meter, or - as before with the import filter 'Ascensia Contour Next Link 2.4 (F)' - import the export file from CareLink with the blood glucose data and the data from the Medtronic insulin pump.


2017-11-28: SiDiary reads the Libre automatically!

For all those who, like us, have been annoyed that Abbott no longer allows us to read out the Libre reader directly, we have good news: with version 6.1.1318, SiDiary can now automatically take over the data from the Libre software.

How this works can be seen in this video: https://youtu.be/lugU53tzMgA

SiDiary detects a Libre-Reader if it is connected to the PC and starts the reading process through the Libre-Software. Afterwards it exports these data automatically into a file and reads it out, so that it's data can be transferred fully automatically into the logbook.

The easiest way to do this is to connect the Libre reader to the PC, then quit the automatically starting Libre software, start SiDiary and watch how SiDiary gets the data from it.

If you have any problems with this, please send an email to info@sinovo.net


2017-09-20: SiDiary and iOS11
Unfortunately, we have found out that under iOS11 the specially developed keyboard for entering digits can no longer handle decimal places.
Until we provide an update, you can continue working with the following workaround: please change the settings. Under' More ->Settings ->Keyboard' you can activate the standard keyboard. After that, you will no longer see the keyboard we created when you type, but the normal iOS keyboard. Details

2017-08-01: SiDiary in a new data processing center

A few weeks ago, SiDiary Online moved to new servers in a new data processing center. In this context, some adjustments were necessary, but these are now for the most part completed. We would like to thank all our users for their patience and understanding towards us at this time.

Thanks to the new servers, we are better able to meet the increased requirements due to our steadily growing user numbers, since in addition to the higher basic performance and failure security, the new servers are also scalable. In times of higher utilization, they can better intercept these load peaks.

In addition, data transmission is now carried out with the latest SSL standards and encryption methods, and it is still cryptographically encrypted during transmission. Also on the server itself all data is stored coded. In the architecture we have also stored strictly seperately personal details on the one side and health data on the other side, so that data can not be assigned by unauthorized persons - even if they could crack it.

Passwords are also irreversibly encrypted according to the best practices (keyword 1,000-fold hash code including random salt). Our system is continuously monitored by security specialists and fully automated with the latest known attacks, so that safety gaps can be detected and closed at an early stage.

SiDiary is now among the few apps that have received the Diabetes App Seal from DiaDigital, because we meet their high security standards and requirements.

With SiDiary you can be sure, that we will spare no effort to ensure the security of your personal data. For this we stand with our good name!


2016-10-10: Win10 and Smart Pix Reader
Good news for all Smart Pix users with Windows 10: since the last major update, Microsoft has changed the handling for MSD (Mass Storage Devices). Since the Smart Pix was also affected by that issue, it couldn't refresh it's status message when all data was received from a meter/pump.
In collaboration with Roche we were able to implement a workaround with update to SiDiary version 6.1.1309. Though the Smart Pix internal HTML app can not benefit from that (and their devices can still not be read with it), it is now possible again to read the data with SiDiary via the Smart Pix reader like before. Details

2016-09-16: Maintenance on SiDiary Online
We're sorry, but because of a server maintenance 'SiDiary Online' is from 12:45 GMT until approximately 13:45 GMT unreachable. We apologize for any inconvenience Details

2016-09-13: SiDiary recognizes meters automatically
Since the SiDiary version 6.1.1308 there is an additional help available: the fully automatic recognition of USB2COM meters when they are connected. These meters, for which a Windows system driver had to be installed, are automatically recognized when connected to the computer by SiDiary and offered to import from it. In the first time it needs to be manually selected from the list of readable devices, but from the second time SiDiary has then learned to which meter this virtual COM port belongs. Details

2016-08-18: SiDiary and Avira

Lately we received some support requests, that when trying to read out meters, users receive error messages and what they can do about it.

We analyzed the problem and found out, that the tool 'Avira Antivirus', which is preferred by many users, is very often the reason. Avira Antivirus prevents, that a configuration file, which is strongly needed for proper operation ability, can be written by SiDiary (in a folder, which is created from and must be writable for SiDiary).

We already reported this to the producers of Avira, but so far there was no change made by Avira.

To solve this matter, there are two different ways:
Either you click on the 5. button from the left in the SiDiary toolbar (Download blood glucose meter/insulin pump) several times. With each new attempt there will be written more of the file, until it's completed after 3 or 4 attempts - then it will show no more error messages.

Or you can add the folder, where SiDiary stores this and other configuration and data files, to the exceptions of the antivirus program. We described the how to in an illustrated manual on this page:


2016-08-09: Libre and mysugr
With today's update the direct import from Abbott Freestyle Libre in SiDiary is rounded. With the original Libre software you can add your own notes, which are then transmitted to the reader. So you can add these short texts after a scanned reading. With the update to version 1.6.1306 SiDiary reads these self-defined notes and adds them to the logbook as remarks.

Another cool new feature is aimed at users who use on their smartphone or tablet the software 'mysugr'. With the current version of SiDiary now you can also import the export files, which you can send to yourself from mysugr as a CSV file via email.


2016-05-19: SiDiary 6.1 available
SiDiary 6.1 is now available for all users as a free update!
With this new version we have not only introduced a new, brighter layout, but also a significant improvement of touch operations on tablet PCs with Windows operating system.

Another cool feature is the integration of CGMS- and Libre data. You can now select in the detail logbook, whether you like to see the blood glucose levels as a table like in the previous version or the curve with the CGMS- or Libre data for that day. This makes it much easier to complete the logbook and add useful details for your diabetes team.
(Of course, you can print your data also included with this new graph)

Another highlight for users of Freestyle Libre from Abbott: the data can be read with version 6.1 directly from the Libre reader into SiDiary, so that it is no longer necessary to export them first from the Libre software.


2016-03-24: Problem with syncing finally solved
Dear users of SiDiary for Android,

after we have issued on Monday for the app itself another update to version 1.0.37, we can finally report today after several days of intense observation, that the problem with the synchronization has been solved.

Kind regards,
Your SiDiary team Details

2016-03-14: Problem with Android Update

The Windows Phone app can also be synchronized too with an account at SiDiary Online, our cloud solution, and thus fits seamlessly into the overall system 'SiDiary'.
(Consisting of a PC version for reading meters and insulin pumps, an online version as a link and apps for smartphones/tablets to collect data anytime and anyplace.)

The Windows Phone app can be downloaded here in the Windows Phone App Store


2014-11-18: SiDiary and Abbott Freestyle Libre
With the new update for SiDiary you can also import the export the files from the software of the Abbott Freestyle Libre into SiDiary!

We recommend that you import it as CGMS data type as an entry of all data as blood sugar value would be too many data for the table. The CGMS data type you can be disabled for the logbook by using the menu 'Diabetes Profile ->Data types'. However, you can add this CGMS data type in the statistics as an additional data source.

In addition, you can extract with the CGMS-AddIn from our download area individual values of this data type and add to the logbook as a blood sugar value. Details

2007-05-29: 400 educadores en diabetes de varios países se..
CÁDIZ. La diabetes, a pesar de ser una enfermedad con gran presencia en la sociedad, es aún una patología desconocida incluso para los que la padecen. Estos suelen tener serios problemas para decidir cómo controlar la enfermedad en cada momento para que su nivel de glucosa esté siempre, pues es lo óptimo, lo más cerca posible de los niveles normales de una persona no enferma. El problema es que inciden multitud de factores y que no vale con unas pautas simples. Depende de lo que se come, del ejercicio que se hace, y otra variedad de cuestiones, como las hormonas, el estrés, la fiebre o el propio estilo de vida. Todo esto hace que a veces la persona no sepa por qué hoy tiene unos niveles de "azúcar", como se dice vulgarmente, y otro día, unos diferentes.

Por esto es imprescindible que el diabético conozca mejor su enfermedad y que existan profesionales formados para ayudarles a ello.

Precisamente persiguiendo este objetivo se inauguró ayer en Cádiz el primer encuentro de carácter internacional que organiza la Federación Española de Asociaciones de Educadores en Diabetes (FEAED). La presidenta de la misma, Esther Gil, el presidente del comité organizador y médico del Hospital Puerta del Mar, Augusto Adrián, así como, Juan Ruiz, jefe de Endocrinología del Hospital Lausana de Ginebra, explican algunas de las claves que se abordarán a lo largo del encuentro que se prolongará hasta esta noche.

De entrada, Esther Gil, recomienda al paciente que demande a sus médicos y enfermeras una información adecuada y amplía que no se limite a unas simples pautas. Augusto Adrián señala la dificultad de conseguir todo esto pues se "trata de cambiar hábitos adquiridos". Por su parte, además de insistir en la necesidad de que el diabético aprenda a autogestionarse, Juan Ruiz aporta una serie de datos que dejan clara la importancia de mejorar el control de esta enfermedad.

Así por ejemplo se prevé que el número de diabéticos seguirá aumentando y será "la pandemia del siglo XXI", teniendo en cuenta el aumento de personas y niños obesos. No hay que olvidar además que la diabetes es la primera causa de ceguera, multiplica por seis las posibilidades de padecer problemas cardiovasculares y, por ejemplo, reduce las expectativas de vida en 10 o 15 años. Por contra, un estudio realizado en Estados Unidos demuestra que si se consigue, cuanto antes, equilibrar la enfermedad las secuelas serán mucho menores 20 años más tarde.

2007-05-29: Cómo repercute la DBT II en la salud de niños...
Una revisión analiza las enfermedades que pueden presentar pacientes tan jóvenes.

El trabajo también recomienda pruebas médicas para descartar algunos problemas


- La diabetes tipo 2 se ha considerado durante mucho tiempo una enfermedad de adultos, sin embargo cada vez son más los niños y adolescentes afectados por este trastorno. Una revisión, publicada en 'The Lancet', muestra las principales complicaciones que puede originar este trastorno cuando se inicia tan pronto.

Hace unos años, si un niño o un joven presentaba diabetes solía ser la del tipo 1. En esos casos el sistema inmunológico deteriora las células productoras de insulina y el paciente necesita inyectársela para mantener su salud. En cambio, en la forma 2 el cuerpo sí produce insulina pero las células son menos sensibles a ella y los niveles de glucosa se mantienen elevados. En principio, con un control adecuado de la dieta y una buena actividad física estos diabéticos pueden controlar su nivel de azúcar en sangre.

Debido al sedentarismo y a los malos hábitos dietéticos, desde hace unos 15 años se están diagnosticando muchos más casos de diabetes tipo 2 entre la población infantil. Así, si antes esta forma era responsable de menos del 3% de todos los casos de diabetes en adolescentes estadounidenses, ahora lo es del 45%.

Por este motivo, es importante conocer el tipo y la frecuencia de posibles complicaciones que pueden aparecer en esta población. Esto es lo que han pretendido Orit Pinhas-Hamiel y Philip Zeitler, del departamento de endocrinología pediátrica del Sheba Medical Center en Tel-Hashomer (Israel), a través de una revisión de estudios que ha publicado la revista 'The Lancet'.

El trabajo muestra que algunos estudios han detectado que un alto porcentaje de jóvenes con diabetes tipo 2 presenta cetoacidosis diabética (una situación grave derivada de la acumulación de sustancias generadas en el metabolismo de las grasas) y descompensación hiperosmolar (la cifra de glucemia está por encima de 600 mg/dl lo que puede conducir a la muerte). También la tensión arterial puede estar elevada en estos pacientes, de hecho, las investigaciones apuntan que la hipertensión es tan frecuente como en los diabéticos tipo 1.

Según la revisión, estos jóvenes desarrollan antes complicaciones microvasculares, como nefropatía (enfermedad del riñón) o retinopatía (deterioro de la retina). En muchos casos estos trastornos están presentes en el momento del diagnóstico. La progresión de estas patologías parece que es más rápida que en las personas con diabetes tipo 1.

Aunque algunos estudios han mostrado la presencia de neuropatías, como disfunción eréctil o enfermedad vascular periférica, los autores de la revisión señalan que no hay suficientes datos para poder extraer una conclusión sobre este tipo de complicaciones.

En cuanto a los problemas cardiovasculares, la información es escasa. Un estudio realizado en Hungría mostró un aumento de la tensión arterial nocturna (predictor de riesgo coronario) y debilidad del tabique auricular del corazón en algunos de los 22 niños valorados. Un trabajo japonés en el que participaron 1.065 personas con diabetes tipo 2 diagnosticada antes de los 30 años detectó que un pequeño porcentaje de éstas desarrolló aterosclerosis.


Por otro lado, los autores señalan que los pediatras no cuentan con guías como las establecidas para las personas con diabetes tipo 2 para controlar su hipertensión o sus niveles elevados de colesterol. Si no se establece un tratamiento que frene estas alteraciones es muy probable que se desarrolle alguna patología cardiovascular o que aumente el riesgo de muerte.

En 2003 la Academia Americana de Pediatría, junto con otras instituciones, elaboraron unas guías para mejorar la atención médica de los niños con diabetes tipo 2 de origen indio americano o nativos de Alaska (estas poblaciones presentan más tasas de este trastorno en la infancia).

En ese informe se recomendaba realizar pruebas para detectar o descartar tanto proteinuria como microalbuminuria (presencia de proteínas o albúmina en la orina). Algunos estudios han mostrado que estas alteraciones progresan más en los niños con diabetes tipo 2 y, son las señales más tempranas de la nefropatía. La progresión de este trastorno puede conducir a una enfermedad renal terminal.

Se aconseja realizar un análisis en el momento del diagnóstico y al mes o tres meses para conocer los niveles de colesterol y triglicéridos. La guía también recomienda llevar a cabo test para conocer la función hepática, ya que las investigaciones muestran que estos niños pueden tener elevadas las enzimas hepáticas.

Una exploración del fondo del ojo está indicada al poco tiempo de detectar la diabetes para conocer el estado de la retina. Esta prueba se deberá repetir cada año ya que algunos estudios señalan que en estos jóvenes la retinopatía aparece antes.

Según los autores de la revisión, estas guías podrían ser adecuadas para todos los adolescentes con diabetes tipo 2. Iniciar pronto estas medidas podría tener beneficios al mejorar las complicaciones y mortalidad, "este tratamiento no debería posponerse y debería comenzar junto con una vigilancia adecuada", señalan.

No obstante, los autores de la revisión señalan que este trabajo presenta algunas limitaciones ya que los estudios analizados eran muy variables y algunos de los participantes pertenecían a poblaciones como la Maorí de Nueva Zelanda que presentan más riesgo de diabetes. Por este motivo hay que ser cuidado al generalizar estas conclusiones.

Finalmente, estos investigadores consideran que también se tendrían que llevar a cabo estudios a largo plazo para valorar esta pauta de tratamiento.


2007-05-29: La diabetes pasa desapercibida para muchas...
La enfermedad es la sexta causa de muerte y no siempre se diagnostica a tiempo.


La diabetes es la sexta causa de muerte en el país, con una prevalencia de 6,1%, lo que quiere decir que por cada cien habitantes seis son diabéticos.

Sin embargo no todas las personas que la sufren están al tanto de ello.

Irene Stulin, médico del Servicio de Endocrinología del Hospital Vargas, explica que no se sabe exactamente cuántas personas sufren de diabetes y desconocen su situación "pero sabemos que por cada paciente que le diagnosticamos la enfermedad en consulta, hay otra persona que la padece y no lo sabe porque precisamente no ha sido diagnosticado oportunamente", señala la especialista.

La mortalidad de esta enfermedad, que no es más que una condición que impide la correcta utilización de los alimentos por parte del organismo, ha mostrado una tendencia creciente en los últimos años en el país: 4,53% en 1996; 5,03% en 1997; 4,87% en 1998; 5,55% en 1999; y 5,64% en 2000.

De acuerdo con Stulin lo que está afectando al venezolano "es su estilo de vida; el sedentarismo es ya parte de nuestras vidas. El apelar a las comidas rápidas, por un lado y la falta de ejercicio por miles de razones entre las que está la inseguridad, porque hay pacientes que no se atreven ni a salir a caminar por temor a ser atracados. Además está la excusa de que uno se para temprano, no tiene tiempo para desayunar en casa; cuando uno llega al trabajo va y se come una empanada con refresco porque resulta rápido y económico. Estas cosas aportan mucha grasa y nos sobrecargan de carbohidratos simples".

Niños y jóvenes en la mira

Según la endocrinóloga la prevalencia de la enfermedad en el país se da principalmente en personas con edades comprendidas entre los 45 y los 70 años, "pero nos preocupa mucho que se ha detectado últimamente que hay cada día más niños y adolescentes con diabetes 2, por obesidad, sedentarismo y malos hábitos alimentarios".

La diabetes tipo 2 es una enfermedad que dura toda la vida y está caracterizada por altos niveles de azúcar en la sangre.

En países desarrollados está asociada con personas que están en edad de retiro laboral.

Stulin recuerda que los pacientes con factores de riesgo son aquellos que tienen antecedentes familiares y en especial los hombres sedentarios, que tienen sobrepeso, asiduos al tabaco y el alcohol; "las mujeres estamos protegidas hasta que llega la menopausia".

Y para evitar que la enfermedad siga inadvertida en la salud de los venezolanos, la endocrinóloga del Hospital Vargas su- braya que "la mayoría de los hospitales de Caracas tienen servicio de endocrinología; igualmente algunas cadenas de farmacia del país tienden a ofrecer servicios de despistaje; hay muchas alternativas para que cada quien pueda enterarse si padece o no de diabetes y de ser necesario acudir a su médico para recibir la terapia indicada". Añade que hay otras señas en el cuerpo del paciente que indican la posible presencia de la enfermedad. Entre estas señales se mencionan la medida de la circunferencia abdominal.

"La circunferencia abdominal de los hombres no debe medir más de 90 centímetros y la de las mujeres no más de 80", precisa la especialista.

Tendencia mundial

Se estima que en Latinoamérica en la actualidad 15 millones de personas sufren de diabetes mellitus y en 10 años la cifra podría llegar a los 20 millones de enfermos, de los cuales 90% a 95% tendrán la diabetes tipo 2. Para el 2025, la población regional de diabéticos podría alcanzar las 40 millones de personas si no se introducen nuevas terapias y/o acciones preventivas.

La terapia de la diabetes no sólo consiste en la disminución de los niveles elevados de glucosa en sangre, sino también en la reducción general de los factores de riesgo de sus complicaciones. Esto incluye el control regular de la presión arterial y los lípidos en sangre. Un correcto control de la glucosa en sangre y de la presión sanguínea provoca grandes reducciones en el desarrollo de complicaciones.

La dieta y la actividad física pueden reducir el riesgo de desarrollar diabetes tipo 2, indican los especialistas. Pero cuando estos cambios en el estilo de vida no son suficientes, podrían ser necesarios los agentes farmacológicos.

El principal objetivo del tratamiento con medicamentos es regular los niveles de glucosa e insulina, dicen los especialistas. Details
