Dr. Sung Yang on major breakthroughs in the treatment of chronic conditions such as diabetes
HONOLULU, HI, UNITED STATES, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Treating chronic diseases is difficult, but modern breakthroughs can make it easier. Dr. Sung Yang will discuss some of the recent breakthroughs in the treatment of chronic diseases such as diabetes.
Did you know that over 1 in 10 Americans have diabetes? Many millions also suffer from high blood pressure, coronary artery disease (which causes heart attacks), arthritis, obesity, asthma, cancer, and other chronic diseases. Fortunately, medical breakthroughs make managing these conditions easier. Would you like to learn more? Dr. Sung Yang will share some of the latest breakthroughs.
“Chronic diseases can have a major impact on a patient’s long-term health and quality of life,” notes Dr. Sung Yang firmly. “This is especially true if the diseases are not identified and treated immediately. Fortunately, medical breakthroughs in modern times make it easier to treat chronic diseases. “
A major breakthrough is improved diagnostic tools that allow clinicians to quickly and accurately test for various chronic conditions from the early asymptomatic stages. For example, improved blood tests for diabetes, cholesterol, thyroid, liver, and kidney functions can identify diseases early before symptoms and complications occur. Colonoscopy, mammography, and CT lung are other examples of early detection or preventive medicine that save the lives of many patients from cancer every day.
Dr. Sung Yang talks about wearable devices
When speaking to technology gurus, you may hear the terms “wearable devices” and “Internet of Things”. Essentially, more devices are now connected via the internet or bluetooth so they can communicate with each other quickly.
The Internet of Things (IoT) may one day connect all of the devices and gadgets in your home, including your humble refrigerator and washing machines. IoT is also used to connect medical devices. This can improve health outcomes and make it easier to monitor and treat certain conditions, such as diabetes.
“Patients can now use portable devices to treat diabetes,” says Dr. Sung Yang. “You can use systems to monitor glucose levels and manage blood sugar levels automatically. These automated insulin pump systems are often far more efficient and accurate at delivering insulin doses, often reducing the amount of insulin you need. “
Some patients are now combining Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) systems with automated insulin pump systems. With CGM, patients don’t have to prick their fingers either, which can be uncomfortable and stressful. As a result, blood sugar levels can be conveniently monitored in real time and insulin doses can be delivered as needed.
While early portable devices were cumbersome and often didn’t last long, new devices can provide monitoring and provisioning capabilities for weeks or even months.
Portable devices not only make it easier for patients, but also for doctors, to continuously monitor sugar levels, blood pressure, heart rate, weight, oxygen levels or even tracking the heart rhythm (e.g. Holter monitor). “New medical technologies that combine advances in biotechnology with those in IT continue to have a tremendous impact on chronic disease management and the prevention of their complications,” says Dr. Sung Yang.
