Diabetes & Aneurysms | WDEC2018 | CME DIABETES CONFERENCES

An aneurysm occurs when an artery’s wall weakens and causes an abnormally large bulge. This bulge can rupture and cause internal bleeding. Although an aneurysm can occur in any part of your body, they’re most common in the:
  • brain
  • aorta
  • legs
  • spleen

     
High blood pressure may also cause an aneurysm. The force of your blood as it travels through your blood vessels is measured by how much pressure it places on your artery walls. If the pressure increases above a normal rate, it may enlarge or weaken the blood vessels.
Blood pressure for an adult is considered normal at or below 120/80 mm Hg, or millimeters of mercury. A significantly higher blood pressure can increase the risk for heart, blood vessel, and circulation problems. Higher than normal blood pressure doesn’t necessarily put you at risk for an aneurysm.
Aneurysms, where a bulge in one of the main blood vessels is caused by a weakening in the blood vessel wall, is a serious complication that can result from diabetes . New research has found that, although the majority of small aneurysms in people without diabetes are not a big problem, large aneurysms and aneurysms in some parts of the body can definitely be life-threatening and need medical intervention .
Unfortunately, diabetics can suffer from aneurysms in most areas of the body, as the disease promotes their formation by being responsible for atherosclerosis, or the build-up of plaque on the inside of artery walls. When a diabetic has very high blood and cholesterol levels, this promotes atherosclerosis and therefore aneurysms.
This makes it vital that people who have diabetes control their blood sugar and cholesterol levels to minimize the chances of getting aneurysms. Some aneurysms are very dangerous, especially if located in the carotid or aortic arteries. Carotid aneurysms in particular usually have no symptoms, meaning the first time you know you have one is when it bursts. Aortic aneurysms typically bring on pains in the chest and abdomen and lack of breath, and may cause behavioral issues in some diabetics.
Diabetics can also get aneurysms in less risky places, such as the knee, and in the veins that carry blood back to the heart. Checking if you have aneurysms involves several types of blood test, as well as palpation for abdominal aneurysms, with treatment including monitoring, drugs to reduce blood pressure and surgery .
Prevent an Aneurysm:
Eating a healthy diet containing plenty of fruits, whole grains, and vegetables may help prevent an aneurysm from forming. Meat and poultry low in saturated fat and cholesterol are also good options for protein. Low-fat dairy products are also beneficial.
Regular exercise, especially cardio, can encourage healthy blood circulation and blood flow through the heart, arteries, and other blood vessels.
If you smoke tobacco products, now is the time to quit. Eliminating tobacco can decrease your risk for an aneurysm.

Our conference WDEC2018, mainly focuses on the complications the consequences of Diabetes and Endocrinology. The speakers from different part of the world will present their immense research talk on this specific topics. We welcome you to the most anticipated,  Diabetic event “World congress on Diabetes & EndocrinologyWDEC2018
