What Is Diabetes?:

What Is Diabetes?   Diabetes is a chronic disease where the body is unable to automatically regulate blood glucose levels, resulting in too much glucose in the blood . Diabetes is the major cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD ). The diabetic people have high blood sugar level. The blood sugar level is regulated by insulin – a hormone produced by the pancreas, which depends on your eating habits .

Symptoms of Diabetes:

Symptoms of Diabetes The most common symptoms of diabetes are as follows : Being all the time thirsty Frequent urination Increased hunger Feeling all the time tired Vision changes; Recurrent skin infections very difficult to heal Tingling or numbness you may feel in your extremities Gums disorders Hair loss and many others

Slide 4:

1. Increase in urination and thirst.  Excessive glucose which is associated with sugar diabetes tend to make you feel dehydrated and would cause you the urge to drink more water. Increase in water intake, of course, makes you urinate more frequent during the whole day . 2. Gaining weight.  When you lose sugar and fluid in your body, your body would want to consume more food. Sweet cravings are one of those symptoms. Since sweet give you energy, your body would be asking you to eat more of those types . 3. Vision problems.  Your vision becomes blurry because eye tissues are being extracted from your lenses. Thus, your vision’s capability to focus is compromised. In serious cases, sugar diabetes can cause blindness.

4. Improper healing.  People with diabetes cannot heal properly. Their bruises may go on for days and days. Infections are not healing faster than it should and women who have vaginal infections are often left to suffer for days . 5. Body numbness.  Excess sugar can also result in nerve damages that can leave certain parts of your body to tingle or feel numb . Sugar diabetes can also cause a continuous occurrence of fatigue and weakness. If you are experiencing one or all of the symptoms, be sure to schedule your appointment with your trusted specialist.

Types of Diabetes:

Types of Diabetes There are two different types of diabetes . Type I Diabetes (juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes):  The reason for type I diabetes is due to pancreas inability to produce insulin . Type II Diabetes (non insulin dependent diabetes or adult onset diabetes):  This diabetes is a result of body tissues becoming resistant to insulin. It is usually hereditary . Type-2 Diabetes is more common than Type-1 Diabetes. Type 2 diabetes is a life-long disease marked by high levels of sugar in the blood.

7 Steps on How to Prevent Diabetes :

7 Steps on How to Prevent Diabetes If you are overweight you risk developing diabetes.  Reduce the amount of food on your plate so you gradually eat less and start to lose weight.  Drink a glass of plain water or a sugar-free drink before your meal to take the edge of any hunger pains. Reduce the amount of fat you are eating; grill or bake foods instead of frying; use low-fat spreads and reduced fat meals. Check the Glycemic Index of the food you are eating – knowing what each food contains helps maintain your blood-sugars, which in turn can prevent the full onset of diabetes.

Slide 8:

Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. If you keep a bottle of water with you and sip frequently you’ll be surprised how much you do drink throughout the day. If you are feeling peckish choose a healthy snack rather than a chocolate bar. Use skimmed rather than full-fat milk in hot drinks. Exercise is good for health.  But if you are not used to doing exercise then start it in moderation.  15 minutes gentle walking each day will ease you into a regular exercising pattern.
