Professor Martin: Managing diabetes: prevention as treatment – promoting health instead of curing diseases

Diabetes and its secondary diseases can be prevented – or at least recognised early to enable optimum treatment – through regular check-ups, remote monitoring by tele-medics and the use of behavioural therapies. At-risk patients stand to benefit most from this.

As well as offering comprehensive treatment to sufferers of diabetes mellitus, the West German Diabetes Clinic and Health Centre (WDGZ) in Düsseldorf, overseen by Professor Stephan Martin, carries out regular checkups, remote monitoring by tele-medics and behavioural therapies for at-risk patients.

Why does it make sense to have a health check-up?

Cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and strokes, do not suddenly just occur out of nowhere in healthy people. In most cases, individual risk factors will have built up slowly over the years and resulted in vascular blockages in the heart, the brain and even the legs. Initiating preventive measures in good time can avert cardiovascular disease and keep people healthy.

What risk factors are there for cardiovascular disease?

Chronic obesity, smoking, high cholesterol, raised blood sugar levels (diabetes mellitus) and high blood pressure can all result in cardiovascular disease. The first signs are seemingly harmless little aches and pains – people actually feel relatively OK. The severity of these apparently innocuous complaints often only becomes clear when they have developed into serious complications. Our health check-ups test you for all major risks. Remember: the earlier you are checked, the earlier you will be diagnosed and the more straightforward your treatment will be.

How is early diagnosis achieved?

To test for the main risk factors in cardiovascular disease, we measure blood pressure and certain other blood values. Ultrasound scans and an ECG stress test must also be carried out to identify any calcification or constriction of the blood vessels. If your tests show normal results, then the risk of suffering cardiovascular disease is extremely small. Further tests, including gastrointestinal endoscopy, can establish any other irregularities.

Managing diabetes

If you already have diabetes mellitus or if it is diagnosed during your medical checkup, the West German Diabetes Clinic and Health Centre is able to offer a long-term programme of care and/or advise you on all issues that may arise. First consideration is always given to non-drug-related treatment. In some cases of type 2 diabetes, early diagnosis of the disease can lead to a regression to the pre-diabetic stage.

Insulin treatment

For patients who require insulin treatment, we supply all the latest insulin types and an insulin pump. In addition to the usual self measurements, it is also possible to continuously monitor blood sugar levels over a 72-hour period. Tele-medic care via electronic media can also be used to make adjustments to intensified insulin therapy programmes.

Diabetic nerve damage

Diabetic polyneuropathy is one of the more unpleasant complications of diabetes mellitus. This occurs when damaged nerves cause either a sensation of numbness or a burning pain at night in the feet and legs. High-frequency therapy, a special form of electrical muscle stimulation effective in cases of diabetic polyneuropathy, is also offered at the WDGZ.

Blutenfest des Rotes Moselweinbergpfirsich

ROZE LENTE IN COCHEM

We hebben éven moeten oefenen, maar na een tijdje rolde Rote Moselweinbergpfirsich vanzelf uit onze mond. Toch kan je in Cochem ook gewoon Rud Peesche zeggen, het plaatselijke dialect voor deze kleine perzik met haar robijnrode vruchtvlees die overal in de Moezelvallei groeit. Terwijl de wijngaarden er nog kaal bijliggen, zijn de roze bloemen van de Moezel-Wijnbergperzik al een fleurige voorbode van de lente. Goed nieuws voor de plaatselijke wijnboeren dus, maar ook voor al wie dol is op perziken, want dan wordt er in Cochem smakelijk gefeest.

Saarbrucken

LANGS DE TAFELS VAN SAAR (LEKKER) LAND

Voor de ene is het een stukje Frankrijk in Duitsland, voor de andere is het een stukje Duitsland dat ook in Frankrijk niet zou misstaan. Wij houden het bij typisch Duits met een stevige Franse twist: Saarland. De kleinste Duitse deelstaat ging een paar keer over en weer tussen beide landen, was tweemaal op zichzelf en werd in 1957 definitief bij Duitsland ingelijfd. Het resultaat is een grensoverschrijdende kruisbestuiving van savoir-vivre en savoir-faire die zich vooral in de lokale gastronomie laat gelden. Wij trokken in Saarland letterlijk van de ene rijk gedekte tafel naar de andere, gingen er tafeltoeren en lieten ons galant overtuigen van het feit dat je van 'een schone tafel' wél kan eten.

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Crazy SB Waschsalon

Quando estamos viajando, nada como ter uma lavanderia perto para as horas de aperto. Não tem como não notar essa lavanderia toda "modernosa". Crazy SB Waschsalon chama a atenção por suas centenas de meias penduradas. Uma decoração perfeita para o ambiente. Eu não cheguei a lavar nenhuma roupa na minha estádia em Dresden, mas se ficasse mais uns dias, teria voltado lá de certeza. Fica na Louisenstraße 6, aberto todos os dias das 06h - 23h.

Travel Bookshop

Travel Bookshop - para os apaixonados por viagem

As coisas mais legais, sem dúvidas eu encontrei em Neustadt. É a região mais alternativa e legal de Dresden. Foi lá que eu vi uma das Lojas de Livros de Viagem mais legais. É aquela loja/livraria/papelaria que você vai querer comprar tudo. Passei uma boa hora lá dentro, folheando (porque ler em alemão, nem em sonho!) todos os guias, livros. Comprei uns postais lindos. Bobeei por não ter comprado uns mapas antigos, eram lindos.

Kunsthofpassage

1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.
