Rijnstate participates in a large-scale population survey with home testing

There is extensive research in the Arnhem region in the early detection of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney damage. Arnhem is one of these four regions.

A total of 160,000 people will be invited for this study. Ultimately, it is our intention that everyone in our country in this age group will be able to test themselves at home to see if these disorders are present. This should reduce the growth in the number of people with cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney damage by 25 percent over the next 10 years.

[email protected] program. This home test will include a urine test (risk factors) for kidney damage, a heart rate test, and a questionnaire. Early signs of cardiovascular disease, kidney damage or type 2 diabetes are followed by a follow-up examination at a regional diagnostic center in order to reduce the burden on regular care as much as possible. If necessary, appropriate lifestyle advice and, if necessary, treatment are given.

A large research partnership has been established, with the aim of developing a national, low-threshold, low-cost approach for all residents of the Netherlands between the ages of fifty, fifty and seventy to detect cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and chronic kidney damage at an early stage, to use appropriate treatment and thus to prevent From (evolution) of these disorders and their complications. This way lives and quality of life can be saved.
