The Municipal Health Secretariat of Belo Horizonte (MG), performs on Friday (12), various awareness and prevention activities to mark the World Diabetes Day, which will be celebrated on Sunday (14). The campaign theme this year is to "educate to prevent." Goal is to draw attention on the care of the population to prevent the disease.

The bus was chosen for coordinating the event due to the large movement of people, especially in periods preceding holidays. On Feb. 15, commemorates the proclamation of the Republic and it is expected that 50 000 passengers pass through the terminal.

Actions will be undertaken in partnership with the Brazilian Society of Diabetes (SBD), Santa Casa de Misericordia de Belo Horizonte and the Ministry of Health of Minas Gerais (SES). Will be offered testing (diabetic foot), measurement of weight, height and body mass index (BMI), risk assessment to be diabetic for ten years, guidelines on nutrition, conservation and use of insulin, artistic activities (presentation of the Police Band Military and theater group the SMSA, the MobilizaSus), checking blood glucose and blood pressure of diabetics and people susceptible to developing the disease.

According to the general practitioner and technical reference of the Adult Health and Aging at SMSA Sidney Maciel, diabetes more common in the capital, as well as the rest of the country is type 2. "Approximately 105 000 people in Belo Horizonte are affected by type 2," he reveals. In type 2 diabetes, experts say, there is a great relationship with obesity and inactivity. It is estimated that 60% to 90% of patients with the disease are obese. The incidence is higher after 40 years.

"Currently, we are living a kind of epidemiological transition, where chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension, for example, are becoming an epidemic. One reason for this is the lifestyle that the majority of the population has led, with Bad eating habits and sedentary lifestyles, "notes Maciel.
