Los Hispanos Diabeticos No Se Hacen Examenes De Vista Anuncios De Comida Rapida Fomentan Obesidad Entre Ninos Hispanos


Los estadounidenses de origen hispano que tienen diabetes tipo 2 son menos propensos a hacerse un examen regular de la vista en comparacion con los hispanos en general.

Muchos ni siquiera saben que la ceguera es una de las complicaciones principales de la diabetes y que los chequeos regulares pueden ayudar a prevenir esta afeccion devastadora, agregaron los investigadores.

Aunque la diabetes tipo 2 se ha convertido en una epidemia general, los hispanos sufren de manera desproporcionada de la enfermedad. De acuerdo con la American Diabetes Association, el 20 por ciento de los hispanos de 40 anos tienen la enfermedad, en comparacion con el 7.8 por ciento de la poblacion general, y la mitad de estos tienen retinopatia (danos en la retina), una complicacion de la diabetes.

Investigadores del Instituto del ojo Wilmer de la Johns Hopkins en Baltimore estan preocupados porque las minorias tienden a acceder con menos frecuencia al sistema de atencion de salud. Los hispanos podrian tambien ser mas vulnerables a un gran numero de complicaciones de la diabetes, incluida la ceguera, la enfermedad cardiaca y la perdida de miembros.

Muchos individuos, miembros de las minorias o no, ni siquiera saben que tienen esta "enfermedad silenciosa", aunque ya tengan indicios de retinopatia, senalan los expertos.

La gran cantidad de anuncios de comida rapida en la television de habla hispana en EEUU podria estar contribuyendo a la epidemia de obesidad entre los jovenes hispanos, segun sugiere un estudio.
