DG SANCO 11/04/12 public health - Major and chronic diseases - Page on diabetes updated - New data on policy frameworks and econ Introduction Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease, characterised by hyperglycaemia, resulting from defects in insulin secretion, insulin action or both. Diabetes mellitus is diagnosed, according to the WHO, by the classic symptoms of polyuria, polydipsia and unexplained weight loss, and/or a hyperglycaemia H 11.1 mmol/l (200 mg/dl) in a random sample or fasting (no caloric intake for 8 hrs), plasma glucose 7.0 mmol/l (126 mg/dl) and/or postprandial value 11.1 mmol/l (200 mg/dl) (2 hrs plasma glucose level during an oral glucose tolerance test). This test should be performed as described by the WHO, using a glucose load containing the equivalent of 75 h anhydrous glucose dissolved in water). In the absence of unequivocal hyperglycaemia with acute metabolic decompensation, these criteria should be confirmed by repeat testing on a different day (EUDIP Definition).

WellChild Low carbohydrate diet in type 1 diabetes, long-term improvement and adherence: A clinical audit Short report Jørgen Vesti Nielsen1*, Caroline Gando2, Eva Joensson2 and Carina Paulsson2 * Corresponding author: Jørgen V Nielsen DG SANCO 25/06/13 public health - Major and chronic diseases - Call for tender on prevention strategies for type 2 diabetes - Qu Call for tender No SANCO/2013/C1/004 concerning a pilot project for developing and implementing successful prevention strategies for type 2 diabetes Following the rules set up by the European Commission I would like to inform you that we received the following questions and provided the answers attached: 1. We are expected to assess the outcome of the intervention at 21 months after the start of the contract (not a specific period after the identification of the intervention group!). If this is done so late in the contract, how we are expected to submit a final report within less than two months (M23)?

Pre‐school Learning Alliance Diet for Type 1 Diabetes Transcript A healthy diet for type 1 diabetes is broadly similar to the guidelines for people without diabetes. The differences between a diet for type 1 diabetes and someone without diabetes are: People with type 1 diabetes need to be more careful with intake of sweet foods The amount of carbohydrate eaten should be balanced with an appropriate amount of insulin The general guidelines for a healthy diet are: PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-005615-15 Diabetes in Europe Europe may soon run the risk of losing its battle against diabetes, which is the fourth most common cause of death in the region. 56 million Europeans have diabetes and by 2035 this number is expected to grow to nearly 70 million, i.e. more than one in ten adults will be affected. This estimated increase underlines policy shortcomings in combating the disease.

Action for Sick Children     Low-carbohydrate diet Such diets are sometimes 'ketogenic' (i.e., they restrict carbohydrate intake sufficiently to cause ketosis). The induction phase of the Atkins diet[1][2][3] is ketogenic. The term "low-carbohydrate diet" is generally applied to diets that restrict carbohydrates to less than 20% of caloric intake, but can also refer to diets that simply restrict or limit carbohydrates to less than recommended proportions (generally less than 45% of total energy coming from carbohydrates).[4][5] Low-carbohydrate diets are used to treat or prevent some chronic diseases and conditions, including cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, high blood pressure, and diabetes.[6][7] History[edit] Prehistory[edit]

PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-003780-16 Diabetes research The incidence of diabetes is escalating rapidly in the EU. In the adult population (20-79 years), the incidence has increased from 4.9% in 2000 to 9.1% in 2015, meaning that 60 million European citizens today suffer from the disease. In some countries, such as Spain, the situation is even worse: approximately 13.8% of the Spanish adult population suffer from diabetes.

[Diabetol Metab Syndr. 2012 PARLEMENT EUROPEEN - Réponse à question E-008624-16 European strategy against diabetes More than 300 000 deaths a year in Europe are caused by diabetes, making it the fourth biggest killer in most developed countries. It affects 32 million Europeans and many others are thought to have impaired glucose tolerance, which is considered a pre-diabetic state. The number of cases is on the rise, having increased from 4.9% of the adult population in 2000 to 9.1% in 2015, and it is estimated that by 2030 it will have reached 16.6%. In Spain, 13.8% of the adult population, meaning more than 5.5 million people, are diabetic. World Diabetes Day 2016 (14 November) focused on patients’ eyesight and on the need for early diagnosis. It is estimated that half of those living with diabetes have not been diagnosed, despite 10% of European health budgets being spent on the condition.
