Diabetes Facts

Diabetes is a very popular word nowadays. TV advertisements and billboards can be seen littered with unwanted and underappreciated advice on how to control this commonly occurring disease. However, many of us turn a blind eye to this awful ailment. Hopefully, after reading this article, you will no longer be a part of those ignorant ones

In its simplest explanation, diabetes is the human body’s inability to produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is responsible for controlling the level of glucose, or sugar, in our blood. The obvious fact here is that diabetes is bad news, as this chronic disease can and will damage your health in a variety of ways. While heart disease and stroke can occur anytime, a diabetes patient is also subject to blindness and kidney failure. Of course, if this sickness reaches an uncontrollable stage, then death becomes the evident worst case scenario.

America is a rather unfortunate country, as over an estimated amount of 18 million people here are patients of diabetes. What’s worse, one-third of this number do not even know that they suffer from this sickness.

The most reliable method in identifying diabetes is a diagnostic examination known as fasting blood glucose test. If this test scores 126 or higher, then you will get something worse than an F in a report card; you will turn out to be a newly discovered diabetes patient! As a rule, adults undergo this test during their scheduled physical examinations.

Diabetes occur in two types, the first of which is called ‘juvenile diabetes’, and, as the name suggests, it victimizes children and young adults.

Adults over the age of 40 are instead tormented by the second type of diabetes and the most commonly occurring one: Type 2 diabetes. Lack of proper food intake and excessive weight are probably the most prominent causes of this type of diabetes. The fact that 80% of Type 2 diabetes patients are stout and obese supports this statement.

The hereditary qualities of diabetes is a topic of intense debate. Unmistakably, a child with both parents being diabetes patients has a very high chance of receiving this cursed health disorder, especially when compared to a child with a single diabetes patient parent. The environment in which a person lives can also contribute to causing diabetes. However, Type 2 diabetes results mostly from; the above discussed genetic factors, problems regarding nourishment and absence of workout to keep the body fresh and fit.

Diabetes can be noticed by a number of symptoms, which include; abrupt loss of weight, lack of vitality, irrepressible gluttony, ceaseless excretion of liquid waste, absence of moistness in the skin, slow recovery of wounds and in some cases, the eyes being unable to see properly.

If diabetes is found in a person, the first and foremost course of action would be to contact a health care provider, who will help in controlling the rising level of the glucose. The diabetes patient then needs to check his or her blood sugar daily and maintain a record of the results. Amount and timing of food intake become extremely important to govern, and a balanced diet becomes the most significant factor in leading a healthy life. Untrue rumors suggest that diabetes patient should never eat food containing carbohydrates. In reality, a controlled diet of all kinds of nutrients, including carbohydrates, is what a diabetes patient truly requires. 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise is also mandatory for anyone suffering from this disease.

After reading all this, you might be troubled with these alarming facts and precautions. To tell you the truth, diabetes is nothing to be scared of. Dedication and determination are the keys to unlocking a happy and fulfilled life, even with diabetes. If you don’t believe me, just ask the millions of Americans who do so every day!
