Health Advice


Sergio Martinez, M.D A patient called me on September 17 wondering if she should get the trivalent flu shot currently available and/or the H1N1 vaccine when it becomes available for herself, her husband, and her children, who are 2½ and 7 months old. Her father developed severe Guillain-Barré syndrome a week after getting a flu shot last year. Guillain-Barré syndrome is an autoimmune process that attacks peripheral nerves to skeletal muscles. It can be so severe that patients become bedridden, cannot move their arms or legs, and even may require a mechanical ventilator to breathe. A tiny fraction of 1 percent of patients who receive flu shots (and other immunizations) may develop this syndrome, and most recover almost completely. This is the sort of decision that everyone should make in conversations with his or her own doctor. In my patient's case, because her father took many months to recover, and because the H1N1 appears quite infectious but not exceptionally lethal, she and I reasoned that it seems best not to immunize her because of her genetic relationship to her father. It does seem reasonable to check in with her pediatrician about immunizing both of her children, who are less likely to get Guillain-Barré and are more likely to have a severe illness if they get H1N1 flu. It also seems reasonable for her husband to be immunized, as he would be genetically distinct from her and would help contribute to improving the immunity of that family. I would recommend giving flu shots (trivalent and H1N1) to everyone who has frequent contact with her father, but I would not give him any flu shots in the future. If he does develop influenza, he could be treated with oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and/or zanamivir (Relenza inhaler).

Dia Mundial de la Diabetes


Se caracteriza por la falta total o la deficiente acción de la hormona insulina, la "llave" que abre la puerta de las células para que en éstas ingrese la glucosa (energía) que consumimos con los alimentos. La menos frecuente (entre el 10 y 15 por ciento) es la diabetes tipo 1, fruto de una reacción autoinmune. Por un motivo aún desconocido el organismo se ataca a sí mismo y destruye sus células beta, que producen insulina en el páncreas. Por eso, los diabéticos tipo 1 necesitan insulina para vivir. Existe el componente hereditario en la enfermedad. Puede aparecer a cualquier edad, pero es más frecuente en la niñez o en la juventud: el páncreas de manera intempestiva se queda sin células beta y sin insulina, y el organismo, cargado de glucosa y sin poder usarla como energía, intenta desesperadamente eliminarla a través de la orina. La persona presenta mucha sed, hambre excesiva, y va perdiendo peso de manera paulatina,porque sus células no reciben energía. La diabetes tipo 2, es más frecuente (cerca del 90 por ciento de los casos) y tiene también componente hereditario. Los síntomas son menos claros y a menudo transcurren entre 5 y 10 años antes del diagnóstico. En ese momento, generalmente ya ha producido alguna de las complicaciones crónicas que podrían haberse prevenido con tratamiento adecuado. Su presencia puede sospecharse si existe obesidad abdominal (88 cmts. en las mujeres, 102 en los hombres), alto colesterol, hipertensión arterial y antecedentes familiares. La diabetes comenzó a describirse en el siglo I, cuando el filósofo griego Arateus el Capadocio se refirió a esta enfermedad por primera vez con este nombre, aludiendo al ‘paso’ de orina en grandes cantidades, como consecuencia de la enfermedad..

EL PÁNCREAS NO PRODUCE SUFICIENTE INSULINA O EL ORGANISMO NO LA PUEDE EMPLEAR EN FORMA EFICAZ. LA ENFERMEDAD CONDUCE A LA HIPERGLICEMIA, CON DAÑOS A NIVEL DE OJOS (RETINOPATÍA), RIÑÓN (NEFROPATÍA), CORAZÓN Y VASOS (CARDIOPATÍA) Y DEL SISTEMA NERVIOSO (NEUROPATÍA) Y PIE DIABÉTICO. 246 MILLONES DE PERSONAS ESTÁN AFECTADAS EN EL MUNDO. SE ESTIMA QUE LA CIFRA ASCENDERÁ A 380 MILLONES EN 2025. EL INCREMENTO QUE MÁS ALARMA DE LA DIABETES TIPO 2 SE PRESENTA EN LAS CIUDADES, POR MALOS HÁBITOS ALIMENTICIOS Y EL SEDENTARISMO. EL 14 DE NOVIEMBRE SE CELEBRA EL DÍA MUNDIAL DE LA DIABETES POR SER EL ANIVERSARIO DEL NACIMIENTO DE FREDERICK BANTING, QUE, JUNTO A CHARLES BEST, CONCIBIÓ POR PRIMERA VEZ LA IDEA QUE LLEVÓ AL DESCUBRIMIENTO DE LA INSULINA, EN 1922.
