DI­A­BETES

WHAT’S YOUR TYPE?

Woman's Era - - Editorial -

There’s some­thing in the world that peo­ple are crazy for, some­thing that they al­ways want more of. The sweet taste of su­gar. And yet there are 30 mil­lion peo­ple out there who are de­voured of this heav­enly taste, the peo­ple with di­a­betes. Some­thing which can strike any­one, at any point of life. In to­day’s busy life, our ex­er­cise rou­tines have been swapped with meet­ings, so­cial gath­er­ings and ready-to-eat foods.

Along with the life­style comes a num­ber of health prob­lems, in­clud­ing di­a­betes. The shock­ing part, about one third of all peo­ple with di­a­betes do not know they have the dis­ease.

Just what is Di­a­betes? When you hear the word, your first thought is likely about high blood su­gar, which is an of­ten-un­der­es­ti­mated com­po­nent of your health. When it’s out of whack over a long pe­riod of time, it could de­velop into di­a­betes. When you eat, your body turns food into su­gar, or glu­cose. At that point, your pan­creas is sup­posed to re­lease in­sulin. In­sulin serves as a “key” to open your cells, to al­low the glu­cose to en­ter, which is used for en­ergy. But in di­a­betes, this sys­tem doesn’t work. With type 1 di­a­betes, the body doesn’t make in­sulin. With type 2 di­a­betes the body doesn’t make or use in­sulin. More than 90% of all peo­ple with di­a­betes have type 2. With­out enough in­sulin, the glu­cose stays in your blood. Hav­ing too much glu­cose in your blood can cause some se­ri­ous dam­ages to your eyes, kid­neys and nerves. Peo­ple with di­a­betes are twice as likely to de­velop heart dis­ease than some­one with­out di­a­betes and it is the lead­ing cause of blind­ness in work­ing-age adults. The most com­mon signs and symp­toms of di­a­betes are:

Fre­quent Uri­na­tion: When the in­sulin is in­ef­fec­tive, the kid­neys can’t fil­ter the glu­cose back into the blood. So, the kid­neys take water from the blood in or­der to di­lute the glu­cose - which in turn fills up your blad­der.

Ex­ces­sive Thirst: Fre­quent uri­na­tion leaves you de­hy­drated. To quench your thirst, you drink more flu­ids, uri­nate more and the cy­cle con­tin­ues.

In­tense Hunger: As the in­sulin in blood isn’t able to func­tion prop­erly and the cells are not get­ting their en­ergy, the body re­acts by try­ing to find more en­ergy, food.

Un­usual Weight Loss: It is more com­mon among peo­ple with Di­a­betes Type 1 as it is of a more sud­den on­set. As the body is not mak­ing in­sulin, it will seek out an­other en­ergy source. Mus­cle tis­sue and fat breaks down for en­ergy.

Blurred Vi­sion: It hap­pens be­cause of the tis­sue that pulls away from your eye lenses, which af­fects your eye’s abil­ity to fo­cus.

In­creased Fa­tigue: When the in­sulin isn’t work­ing prop­erly, the glu­cose doesn’t en­ter the cells and fails to pro­vide them with en­ergy, which makes you feel tired and rest­less. More Skin/yeast In­fec­tions: The body’s abil­ity to re­cover from in­fec­tion gets af­fected when there is more su­gar in the body. Woman who have di­a­betes find it hard to re­cover from vagi­nal and blad­der in­fec­tions.

Cuts & Bruises Don’t Heal

Prop­erly: The body’s abil­ity to heal is un­der­mined when there is more glu­cose in the body and your cuts and bruises take a much longer time to heal than usual. Red, Swollen & Ten­der Gums: Di­a­betes weak­ens your abil­ity to fight germs, which in­creases the risk of in­fec­tion in your gums and in the bones that hold your teeth in place. Your teeth of­ten be­come loose as the gums pull away from them.

If you no­tice any pos­si­ble di­a­betes signs or symp­toms, you should get di­ag­nosed. It is not some­thing you should take lightly. More than most con­di­tions, treat­ing di­a­betes re­quires a sig­nif­i­cant amount of real ef­fort on the per­son’s part. Diet, phys­i­cal ex­er­cise and drugs are the best friends of the peo­ple with di­a­betes. There might be times you feel like no med­i­ca­tion is go­ing to heal this dis­ease. But all hope isn’t lost yet. There is still some­thing out there which can help com­bat this silent killer. It is the Di­a­betic Sup­port Pack by Or­ganic In­dia.
