For more information on Diabetes in Tower Hamlets, the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment on the condition provides information on the epidemiology of the condition in the borough (attached below).
Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common chronic conditions across the globe, particularly in developed nations. Failure to start diabetes treatment and management from the time of diagnosis can have very serious consequences.
Most of us know the common signs of diabetes like a dry mouth, frequent urination and unexplained weight loss despite an increase in appetite. As the nerves of the legs become damaged due to the continuously high blood glucose levels, symptoms like burning and pain starts to arise. Nerves carry signals of different sensations (sensory) back to the brain and signals to control muscles from the brain to different parts of the body. It is not only the nerves that control sensation and activity of the limbs that are affected. High blood pressure is another consequence of poorly managed diabetes mellitus over the long term.

Als u denkt dat u gebeten bent door bedwantsen, is belangrijk om een bedwantsen beet te herkennen. Op deze pagina leggen we u uit op welke dingen u kunt letten om vast te stellen of u last heeft van bed bugs.

Ondanks dat dat bedbugs meestal ’s nachts bijten, zijn de gevolgen meestal niet direct zichtbaar en worden mensen er niet wakker van.
Als u bijvoorbeeld last heeft van bed bugs op reis, is het daarom soms lastig te bepalen in welk hotel u last heeft gehad van bedwantsen. Naast ontzettend veel jeuk en rode bultjes ontstaan er vaak kleine zwellingen rondom de beet van een bedwants. De zwellingen en de jeuk ontstaan doordat het parasitaire insect een aantal stoffen injecteert die het bloed ervan weerhouden om te stollen. Een bedwants kan tot wel drie keer haar eigen gewicht in bloed absorberen bij een enkele keer voeden.
Ook zijn er vaak uitwerpselen van bedwantsen zichtbaar en hangt er een vieze amandelachtige geur. Hieronder een video gemaakt door de BBC die duidelijk het proces van een bedwantsen beet laat zien (De video is in het Engels). Rode vlekken op de benen zijn kenmerkend voor beten van bed bugs, omdat bed bugs in uw bed zitten, en daarom ook vaak bijten onder de dekens. Als u last heeft van bed bugs dan wilt u deze beten natuurlijk zo snel mogelijk weg hebben.
Als u de jeuk toch niet kunt uit staan en de beten van de bedwants wilt behandelen zijn er een aantal dingen die u kunt doen.

An estimated 5 per cent of the population in Tower Hamlets, around 15,870 people, are thought to have type 1 or type 2 diabetes; with around 15,182 of those thought to have type 2 diabetes. Early diagnosis, treatment and good control of diabetes can help to reduce the chances of developing serious health complications in the future.
The sessions are designed to give advice on healthy activities to help control Type 2 diabetes, give participants 30 minutes of exercise with a qualified trainer and participants can also be introduced to Diabetes Befrienders who can help to manage diabetes.
Staff at the centre include a community diabetes consultant, lead nurse, diabetes nurse specialists, diabetes educators (both Bengali and English speaking), dieticians, clinical psychologist, podiatrists and linkworkers.
Also here at Healthwatch Tower Hamlets, we have conducted our own research into diabetes by analysing the views and experiences of young Bangladeshi people when it comes to prevention of the condition. It is often associated with obesity, a sedentary lifestyle and a family history of diabetes. It may not occur within the first few months but eventually the damage that diabetes does to the body is irreversible. However, diabetes may sometimes not present with these symptoms, or if present it may not be prominent enough to make a person take notice. Headaches, fatigue, itchy skin and repeated infections can also be signs of diabetes. A complication means that when a condition is severe, poorly managed or has existed for a long time then it can have other secondary effects on the body.
It usually affects the feet and legs but may also involve the arms and other parts of the body in due course. Even nerves under involuntary control and those controlling the smallest muscles in the body may be damaged over time. Firstly, a diabetic with muscle weakness, poor eyesight and other complications is more likely to sustain injuries particularly of the legs. The impaired immune system is one of the major reasons why diabetics cannot fight off infections effectively. View our slide show to see the most common childhood rashes and skin conditions, and learn how to treat them. One day your baby's skin is clear and smooth his eyes are bright and his mouth and ears are free of infection. The area around a sting can quickly become red, swollen, and itchy, which can be uncomfortable for your baby.To minimise the amount of venom entering your baby's skin, try to remove the stinger as quickly as possible. A few days later, you'll see a cluster of small blisters on or near his lips that turn into a painful sore, possibly along with a fever and swollen lymph glands in his neck.In a few days the sore will crust over and slowly disappear. It is common in newborns, and can show up as a red area on your baby's scalp, covered with greasy, yellow, scaly patches. You can help to ease any swelling and itchiness with some calamine lotion or antihistamine cream.
Depending on the type of impetigo, the blisters may be tiny and burst easily, or be larger and take a few days to burst.Once the blisters have burst and dried, a scabby tan or yellow-brown crust will form.
That's a good question.Often herpes sores get mistaken for other things like bug bites, ingrown hairs, or even pimples.
Then usually triggered by stress, it goes up the ganglia of the nerves to the skin around the mouth or genital area.It hangs out under the skin for a few days. It will make the skin red and irritated.Then the herpes virus will create small liquid pus-filled blisters at the surface of the skin. Er zijn namelijk vele soorten ongedierte die ook bijten of steken, en de symptomen hiervan kunnen erg op elkaar lijken. Vaak begint de jeuk van een bedwantsen beet pas in de loop van de dag of enkele dagen later op te komen en zichtbaar te worden. Mocht u dus last hebben van deze symptomen, wil dat niet automatisch zeggen dat het bedluizen beten zijn.
Kijk bijvoorbeeld in de naden van uw matras en check de muren op scheurtjes en kloven waar bedbugs zich in zouden kunnen verstoppen.
U hoeft zich in principe geen zorgen te maken, want een bedwantsen beet trekt na een aantal dagen (maximaal 10) vanzelf weer weg. Bedwantsen vormen een echte plaag en deze wordt alleen maar groter als er niet aan gedaan wordt.

Nationwide, there are 3.2 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK, as well as an estimated 630,000 people who have the condition, but don’t know it.
Like many other chronic conditions, you may not know you have diabetes for months or even years until the symptoms become evident or the changes in the blood glucose levels are detected upon routine screening.
The presence or absence of symptoms are not an effective way of deciding when to test your blood glucose levels or when to start on the dietary, lifestyle and medication program. Trying to change your eating habits and taking your medication strictly at this point may not undo the damage that the diabetes has already done. Often other causes may be considered for these symptoms in the absence of common diabetes symptoms like a dry mouth and frequent urination, but diabetes is a complex and extensive condition that can affect almost any part of the body. Therefore the signs of diabetic complications discussed below is more likely to occur in a person who has long term and poorly managed, or untreated diabetes.
This is known as peripheral neuropathy and is further compounded by poor blood flow to the legs, which is yet another complication of diabetes mellitus.
This is noted by reduced sensation in certain parts of the body, often starting with the legs.
Those under involuntary control are part of the autonomic nervous system and damage to these nerves is known as autonomic neuropathy. One of the major factors in diabetes mellitus is that the nerves controlling the blood vessels becomes damaged. Diabetes affects heart structure and function in various ways like causing damage the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy).
The elevated blood glucose levels causes changes in the filtering apparatus of the kidneys.
Secondly, the nerve damage (neuropathy) of the feet and legs means that minor injuries are not often perceived and therefore treatment is delayed.
The cyst is caused by an inflamed tear duct or eyelash gland.A chalazion is usually more annoying than painful for your baby. Over time the scales can start to become flaky so they rub off easily, just like dandruff, but often with bits of your baby's hair attached. Erythema toxicum can appear anywhere on your baby's body, apart from the palms of her hands or the soles of her feet. The pustules usually appear in crops, and your baby may have them on his neck, arms, legs, armpits, and bottom. The crusts will gradually heal and won't leave scars.Impetigo isn't usually painful, but it can be itchy.
This combination of red skin and blisters is known as a herpes sore.Usually there will be many little blisters clustered together. A pimple looks like herpes because it has red skin with a white blister on top.The difference however are many. Er zijn echter talloze huidaandoeningen en het is soms lastig vast te stellen welke aandoening u precies heeft. Dan is het het beste om het zekere voor het onzekere te nemen en contact op te nemen met een professional.
De bultjes zitten vaak vlak bij bloedvaten die vlak onder het oppervlak van de huid liggen. Als gevolg van de ernstige jeuk, krabben mensen vaak onbewust hun huid helemaal open, wat lelijke plekken tot gevolg heeft.
Het is daarom aan te raden, om altijd alert te zijn op sporen van wandluizen in en rondom het bed.

However, many diabetics also believe that if they are asymptomatic then their diabetes is under control. A person may be unable to feel a slight prick, insects crawling on the legs or does not feel that very hot water is unbearable. It impairs the body’s ability to widen and narrow the blood vessels to alter the blood pressure.
Eventually cardiomyopathy will lead to heart failure as well as abnormalities in the rate and rhythm of the heartbeat known as arrhythmias.
While a cataract is largely curable with the surgical replacement of the lens, other eye conditions caused by diabetes are not always so.
Indirectly, diabetes contributes to hypertension (high blood pressure) which in turn damages the kidneys over time. Coupled with the low immune defenses in diabetes as well impaired blood circulation to the leg and feet, a simple cut can complicate into open sores (leg ulcers) and even progress to gangrene requiring amputation of the leg. Persistent dryness (a symptom of diabetes) means that the microbe-combating properties of saliva are absent and together with other diabetes complications allows for microorganisms to easily infect the mouth cavity and associated structures.

Eventually this becomes numbness where a diabetic is unable to perceive any sensation on the affected area. One of these conditions affects the retina of the eye and is known as diabetic retinopathy. Gingivitis and periodontitis (gum and bone disease) is more likely to occur in diabetics as well as oral candidiasis (mouth thrush) among other infections.

But it can also lead to incontinence, both of the bladder and bowel, where a person cannot restrain urination and defecation respectively. Chronic kidney failure means that the kidneys cannot filter the blood effectively to remove wastes and toxins from the bloodstream.
Check the dosage and ask a pharmacist for advice if you are unsure how much to give.If your baby is in a lot of pain take her to see your GP. To ease your baby's pain apply ice to the sore or give him a dose of infant paracetamol suspension.
It is most significant when it affects the arteries of the heart (coronary artery disease) and arteries to the brain thereby increasing the chances of a heart attack (myocardial infarction) or stroke (cerebrovascular accident). Dialysis, an artificial means of filtering the blood, is necessary until a healthy kidney can be transplanted.
You can help your baby recover by making sure she gets plenty of rest and giving her paracetamol and extra fluids to bring down her fever.
