According to the of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, diabetes was the seventh leading cause of death in the world in 2016. The prevalence of diabetes in Ukraine has increased by half in the last 10 years. Almost 3% of the primary disability of the adult population in Ukraine is due to diabetes.

The 10-year risk of cardiovascular events in patients with diabetes is 5-10%. Diagnosis and treatment of various diseases in diabetic patients can be complicated by an atypical course, which requires additional attention and knowledge from doctors.

That is why, during the conference “YOUNG SCIENCE 2.0”, which was held on 19 th February in Kyiv in Shupyk NMAPE, a large number of reports were devoted to the problems of patients with diabetes and metabolic syndrome. The Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care of Shupyk NMAPE under the direction of Professor Oleg Loskutov has been engaged in the problem of comorbid pathology, in particular, in diabetes for a long time. Therefore, the report of the PhD student of the Department Mariana Bolyuk, which was devoted to the pain syndrome in patients with diabetes mellitus and myocardial infarction (supervisor - Oleksandr Galushko, MD, Doctor of Science, Professor of the Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care), was awarded by the diploma of the second degree.
