Albania has highest level of deaths of Europe due to diabetes

 Today is the International Diabetes Disease Day, a disease that is estimated to be the seventh death cause in the world. The data show that in Albania the number of deaths caused by this disease is higher than in any other country in Europe. In 2017, the number of deaths caused by endocrine-related illnesses was 110 per 1 million inhabitants.

This group also includes other diseases related to the endocrine system, but according to endocrinologist Dashamir Gjergji, the biggest share are the diabetic patients. In the health report of the Ministry in 2014, it was said that the level of deaths from diabetes had tripled in the country.

This triple increase in diabetic mortality, according to the report, is due to high levels of glucose, unhealthy diet, obesity and physical inactivity.
Diabetes mellitus has almost doubled in Albania in both sexes over the past two decades. In men, a 96% increase of DALY was observed in diabetes, while in women the increase was 85%, according to the Ministry's report.

For Dashamir Gjergji, this great number of people, not only in our country but elsewhere also, comes from many causes, with the main ones being: the lack of periodic medical check-ups, irrational orientation towards risk groups as well as nonoptimal sensitization and lack of population response to this information.
