How is type 2 diabetes affecting the population in Central America and the Caribbean? Dr. Jorge Castillo – Endocrinologist (Colombia)
About the event
Dr. Jorge Castillo – Endocrinologist (Colombia)
In his presentation, Dr. Castillo shows how epigenetic factors, countries’ per-capita income and migrations to urban areas are affecting the population of Central America and the Caribbean, impacting the prevalence of type 2 diabetes. The doctor emphasizes that the goal of maintaining HbA1c < 7% is not being achieved globally or regionally, which generates serious complications, not to mention the high costs associated with these complications.
That is why it is essential to reach and maintain an HbA1c level < 7% in patients with type 2 diabetes in our region, in order to reduce their cardiovascular and renal risks.
