2nd Internal Medicine Annual Update
Updating Knowledge of Metabolic Diseases and Diabetes in Daily Practice
The Faculty of Medicine of Tarumanagara University (FK Untar) will hold it’s second annual national seminar of Internal Medicine Annual Update on Saturday, December 3rd 2016. This seminar is one of FK Untar’s continuous efforts in raising the knowledge level of Indonesian physicians in the field of Internal Medicine. On this year, the committee decided to held the seminar with the theme of “Updating Knowledge of Metabolic Diseases and Diabetes in Daily Practice”.
For the past decade, Indonesia has gone through a transition on it’s disease epidemiology. Infectious disease is not the most common cause of deaths anymore, it’s position has been taken over by degenerative diseases, like stroke, hypertension, cardiac diseases, and vascular diseases. According to the data from 2007 Riskesdas (Riset Kesehatan Dasar) survey, stroke and hypertension placed first as the leading cause of deaths in Indonesia. Obesity prevalence was 19% and it is predicted that it will continue to rise every year. 42.8% of Indonesian people is lacking in physical activities. It is of no surprise that the prevalence numbers of metabolic diseases, lipid disorders, and diabetes continues to rise with all these factors left unchecked.
The 2016 IMADE will discuss mainly degenerative diseases. From all diabetes cases in Indonesia, the ones who received treatments are roughly two thirds of the population, and from those populations, only half reached satisfactory blood glucose control. The developments and researches on metabolic diseases and diabetes are abundant, but unfortunately, not all Indonesian physicians know and understand these developments. It is FK Untar and IMADE 2016 committee’s hope to urge Indonesian Physicians to attend, learn, and implement the knowledge that IMADE 2016 has to offer on medical science developments and degenerative disease treatments to create a healthy Indonesia Society.
