Diabetes often referred as diabetes mellitus describes a group of metabolic diseases in which the person has high blood glucose (blood sugar) either because insulin production is inadequate or because the body's cells do not respond properly to insulin or both. Patients with high blood sugar will typically experience polyuria (frequent urination) they will become increasingly thirsty (polydipsia) and hungry (polyphagia).
Type 1 Diabetes - The body does not produce insulin. Some people may refer to this type as insulin-dependent diabetes, juvenile diabetes, or early-onset diabetes. People usually develop type 1 diabetes before their 40th year often in early adulthood or teenage years.
Type 2 Diabetes - The body does not produce enough insulin for proper function, or the cells in the body do not react to insulin (insulin resistance). Keeping blood sugar levels within the range recommended by doctor can be challenging. That's because many things make blood sugar levels change, sometimes unexpectedly.
Diagnosis of Diabetes is done by Physician through clinical examination, followed by tests like Blood Sugar fasting & PP, Hb A1C, Urine Test etc.
Type 2 diabetes is preceded by another condition called insulin resistance. Once you are diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, you have two paths on which you can go. Either you opt for medicines which will help you for some years before losing their effect and ultimately you would be faced with all the debilitating effects of diabetes like kidney failure, heart disease and stroke.
The other path is to understand why the disease occurs in the first place and reversing the causes. Consuming food and drinks which supply quick energy and the absence of regular exercise and an active lifestyle leads to fat deposition in your body which increases the body weight. If you start consuming food in its raw form which means eating as much salads, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in their raw form will go a long way in bringing your blood sugar levels to normal without the help of any kind of medicines. This type of diet will increase your energy levels multifold make exercise an integral part of your life. Once you start your journey on this path, the body weight would start reducing and the insulin production by the pancreas will also improve. Our physician is always there to help you with the right kind of medicines till you change your life into a healhy one.
