Type 2 Diabetes – Rising Blood Sugar levels on the Horizon…..

Type 2 diabetes or Non – Insulin dependent diabetes happens because your insulin is not allowing glucose to enter your cells and then there is too much sugar in your blood.

• Blurred vision
• Dehydration and Excessive thirst caused because of losing a large amount of water through your kidneys
• Excessive Hunger
• Concentration difficulty
• Frequent Urination to flush out the extra sugar
• Feeling irritable and short tempered

Diagnosis of diabetes mellitus:

1. Random plasma glucose greater than or equal to 198 mg/dl (11.1 mmol/l) accompanied by the symptoms of diabetes

2. Fasting plasma glucose greater than or equal to 126 mg/dl (7 mmol/l) and is usually carried out after fasting for eight hours overnight.

3. Blood glucose of greater than or equal to 198 mg/dl (11.1 mmol/l) when tested after swallowing 75 grams of oral glucose (following overnight fasting). This test is known as an Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT) and is one of the definitive test for diabetes. Although it may not be necessary in diabetics whose random plasma glucose test was greater than or equal to 198 mg/dl (11.1 mmol/l).

Type 2 diabetes is controllable ...It is important for you check your blood sugars on a regular basis as symptoms of hyperglycemia can be very mild and you feel normal.

Brief information on the Types of Diabetes – Type 1, Type 2 & gestational diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects as many as 16 million Americans. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, renal failure, and amputation including heart attacks, strokes and loss of vision. It is characterized by glucose intolerance and is caused by an imbalance between the body's insulin supply and insulin demand.

Type 1 Diabetes:
Type 1 diabetes is also called as Juvenile Diabetes, Insulin dependent diabetes or Autoimmune Diabetes. It occurs in puberty usually between ages 10 to 12 in girls 12 to 14 in boys. Genetic make up and environmental factors such as certain viruses are noted as the prime cause for this type of diabetes. This chronic disease is caused by the inability of the body, particularly the pancreas to produce sufficient amount of insulin needed by the body to absorb glucose in order to produce energy. When sugar is not absorbed as it should be, its level builds up in the blood and urine as the symptoms start showing.
Symptoms - frequent thirst, hunger, abnormally frequent urination, hard breathing, rapid weight loss and irregularity in protein and fat metabolism resulting to fatigue or lack of energy.

Type 2 Diabetes:
Type 2 diabetes also called as Non insulin dependant Diabetes occurs when our body becomes insensitive to insulin. Since insulin is needed to in order to control our blood glucose levels, once our body becomes insulin- resistant, our blood glucose levels increase without any check, and this when type2 diabetes occurs. It usually occurs to people who are overweight, live a sedentary lifestyle and have uncontrollable food habits. Type 2 diabetes can be managed with a healthy diet and regular exercises along with herbal supplements that are safe and natural.

Gestational Diabetes:
Gestational Diabetes also known as Gestational Diabetes Mellitus or GDM is a form of diabetes that sometimes develops during pregnancy. It usually occurs in the second or third trimester. GDM occurs when the expectant mother’s pancreas cannot make enough insulin causing the body not to able to regulate the glucose.

Diabetes and its Consequences!!

“Diabetes mellitus” or Diabetes is a chronic medical condition characterized by high blood sugar levels. This disease can be controlled by proper medication but lasts for a lifetime. In ancient time it was identified as a disease which was associated with “sweet urine and excessive muscle loss”. Sweet urine is used for diabetes because of the presence of increased level of glucose in the blood which leads to spillage of glucose into the urine.

The condition in which there is increased high amount of glucose in blood than the normal is termed as Hyperglycemia. This high level of glucose occurs due to the defects in insulin secretion, action or both. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas. The function of insulin is to maintain the optimum level of glucose in blood i.e. when a person consumes food; insulin is released from the pancreas to keep glucose level of blood under control.

Diabetes is a very dangerous disease if not kept under control as it can cause many other health complications i.e.

Consequences of Diabetes Mellitus:

Diabetes mellitus is actually a group of metabolic diseases causing severe health problems like blindness, nerve damage, and kidney failure. These health complications occur due to the damage caused to small vessels. All these diseases are referred to as microvascular disease. Diabetes results in narrowing and hardening of the arteries called as “artherosclerosis”. Other health complications include strokes, coronary hear disease and macrovascular diseases.

Thus get your diabetes treated properly before you suffer from any of the above severe health complications.
