What is Diabetes ?

Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Diabetes is a disease that occurs when a person’s body doesn’t make enough of the hormone insulin or can’t use insulin properly.

 

Types of Diabetes-

There are 2 types of diabetes :- Type 1 diabetes- When  your body does not make insulin.

Type 2 diabetes- Occurs when the pancreas either doesn’t produce enough insulin or your body’s cells ignore the insulin. Because of this glucose stays in your blood. Between 90% and 95% of people who are diagnosed with diabetes have type 2 diabetes.

You can also have prediabetes. This means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. Having prediabetes puts you at a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes-

Type 1 diabetes is also called insulin-dependent diabetes. It is sometimes called juvenile diabetes because it is usually discovered in children and teenagers, but adults may also have it.

Symptoms may include-

  • Being very thirsty
  • Urinating often
  • Feeling very hungry or tired
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Having sores that heal slowly
  • Having dry, itchy skin
  • Losing the feeling in your feet or having tingling in your feet
  • Having blurry eyesight.

Type 2 diabetes-

The more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose get into your cells to give them energy. Without insulin, too much glucose stays in your blood. Over time, high blood glucose can lead to serious problems with your heart, eyes, kidneys, nerves, and gums and teeth.

You have a higher risk of type 2 diabetes if you are older, obese, have a family history of diabetes, or do not exercise. Having prediabetes also increases your risk.

Symptoms may include-

The symptoms of type 2 diabetes appear slowly. Some people do not notice symptoms at all.

  • Being very thirsty
  • Urinating often
  • Feeling very hungry or tired
  • Losing weight without trying
  • Having sores that heal slowly
  • Having blurry eyesight

 

What is pre-diabetes?

Prediabetes means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. Pre-diabetes is becoming more common in the United States. It greatly increases the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The good news is that you can take steps to prevent or delay the onset of full-blown type 2 diabetes by making lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, reaching and maintaining a healthy weight, and exercising regularly.

 

Symptoms of Diabetes –

Your blood sugar can rise for many reasons, including eating too much, eating the wrong types of foods, not taking enough insulin or illness. Some common symptoms are –

  • Frequent urination
  • Increased thirst
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability
  • Hunger
  • Difficulty concentrating

 

  • Heart and blood vessel disease-
  • Diabetes dramatically increases your risk of various cardiovascular problems, including coronary artery disease with chest pain (angina), heart attack, stroke, narrowing of the arteries (atherosclerosis) and high blood pressure.
  • Nerve damage (neuropathy)- 
  • Excess sugar can injure the walls of the tiny blood vessels (capillaries) that nourish your nerves, especially in the legs. This can cause tingling, numbness, burning or pain that usually begins at the tips of the toes or fingers and gradually spreads upward. Poorly controlled blood sugar could cause you to eventually lose all sense of feeling in the affected limbs.
  • Damage to the nerves that affect the gastrointestinal tract can cause problems with nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation. For men, erectile dysfunction may be an issue.

 

  • Kidney damage (nephropathy)- 
  • The kidneys contain millions of tiny blood vessel clusters that filter waste from your blood. Diabetes can damage this delicate filtering system. Severe damage can lead to kidney failure or irreversible end-stage kidney disease, which requires dialysis or a kidney transplant.

 

  • Eye damage-
  •  Diabetes can damage the blood vessels of the retina (diabetic retinopathy), potentially leading to blindness. Diabetes also increases the risk of other serious vision conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma.

 

  • Foot damage-
  • Nerve damage in the feet or poor blood flow to the feet increases the risk of various foot complications. Left untreated, cuts and blisters can become serious infections, which often heal poorly and may ultimately require toe, foot or leg amputation.

 

  • Skin and mouth conditions-
  •  Diabetes may leave you more susceptible to skin problems, including bacterial and fungal infections.

 

  • Pregnancy complications-
  • High blood sugar levels can be dangerous for both the mother and the baby. The risk of miscarriage, stillbirth and birth defects are increased when diabetes isn’t well-controlled. For the mother, diabetes increases the risk of diabetic ketoacidosis, diabetic eye problems (retinopathy), pregnancy-induced high blood pressure and preeclampsia.

 

Reason of Diabetes –

Mostly Reason behind Diabetes is either lowering of insulin or not acceptance of insulin by cells.

  • Family history- Anyone with a parent or sibling with type 1 diabetes has a slightly increased risk of developing the condition.
  • Genetics- The presence of certain genes indicates an increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes.
  • Geography- The incidence of type 1 diabetes tends to increase as you travel away from the equator. People living in Finland and Sardinia have the highest incidence of type 1 diabetes — about two to three times higher than rates in the United States and 400 times the incidence among people living in Venezuela.
  • Age- Although type 1 diabetes can appear at any age, it appears at two noticeable peaks. The first peak occurs in children between 4 and 7 years old, and the second is in children between 10 and 14 years old.

 

Precaustion For Diabetic Person-

Consult the experts-
It is advised that you consult your physician or a dietician and have a diet plan chalked out as soon as you find out you are pre-diabetic. You should stick to the diet with dedication. Make sure you get all your doubts on diabetes cleared as to what is okay on cheat days and what is a complete no-no. Knowing about sugar substitutes and their effects on the body will leave you in a better position to decide whether you want to opt for those or not.

Keep a watch on what you are popping in –
Most drugs that are prescribed for diabetes react with other drugs and can lead to life threatening consequences. Always consult a physician before popping any pills and make sure to inform you have diabetes, when you go for any other check-up or treatment.

Also, more than one medicine at a time to keep diabetes in check can lead to an increased risk of hypoglycaemia.

Follow an ABC check-up regularly-
Consult a physician regularly and set a schedule for your ABC check-up for diabetes prevention.

A1C test- It is a blood test that measures your blood sugar level on an average over a period of three months. It is different from the daily blood tests that you take. An A1C test needs to be done 2-3 times a year.

Blood Pressure –

Blood pressure can harm your blood vessels just as much as diabetes can.  High blood pressure can have harmful effect on your eyes, kidneys and can cause a stroke or a heart attack. It is important for a diabetic to keep the blood pressure in check.

Cholesterol –

High cholesterol and diabetes is a terrible combination to have together as the damage is much faster and worse. Together, cholesterol and diabetes leave the patient at a high risk of a stroke and heart attack.  Regular exercise and good eating habits go a long way in maintaining cholesterol levels.

Eye Check Ups –
Eyes are most likely to get affected by diabetes and many diabetic patients lose their eyesight due to negligence. Visit your Ophthalmologist regularly and get your eyes checked for signs of retinal damage, cataract and glaucoma if you are suffering from diabetes.

Vaccines –
Diabetes leaves one susceptible to a number of diseases due to a weakened immune system. Hence it is necessary to stick to your vaccine schedule without fail. Ask your doctor more about flu, pneumonia, and Hepatitis B vaccines among others.

 

Quit smoking and monitor your alcohol levels –

“More than 30% of the newly diagnosed diabetics are smokers.”

Quitting smoking reduces the risk of getting diabetes and health complications, as smoking

  • makes one more susceptible to
  • high cholesterol levels
  • worsened blood sugar control
  • kidney disorders leading to dialysis
  • nerve damage from diabetes
  • foot ulcers and amputation of toes

Alcohol consumption can cause fluctuations in the blood glucose levels, leading to a rise when consumed and then a drop after a short span of time. Although, consuming moderate amount of alcohol with food doesn’t have a significant effect on the blood sugar level.

  1. Ayurvedic practitioners attack diabetes using a multi-prong approach. First, they address diet modification, eliminating sugar and simple carbohydrates, and emphasizing complex carbohydrates. Protein is limited, since excessive intake can damage the kidneys. Fat is also limited because there is often a deficiency of pancreatic enzymes, making fat digestion difficult. Since many diabetics have auto antibodies, a cleansing program is instituted. Panchakarma is typically used for this purpose. This begins with herbal massages and an herbal steam sauna, followed by fasting to cleanse the body. This is followed by an herbal purge for the liver, pancreas, and spleen. Colon therapy is next, first to cleanse the digestive tract and then to reconstitute the system.
    Ayurvedic practitioners also use several herbal preparations for diabetics. Exercise is another cornerstone of ayurvedic treatment of diabetes. Yoga and breathing exercises are traditionally used.
