At Dr.Morlawar’s, we understand the repercussions of diabetes in a person. Most of the people feel that they have become slave to the disease because they have to limit the things they eat. We empower our patients to eat a more healthy diet along with the homeopathic treatments so that they do not feel limited. While diabetes does require regular treatment so that it can be kept in check, with the help of homeopathy, our patients have been able to maintain their blood sugar levels more easily.
Diabetes is becoming one of the most common diseases around the world. A huge population suffers from diabetes which offers very less chances of complete cure. Most of the times, patients have to continue on medicines and rely on a healthy lifestyle to manage the disease. This health condition affects the way in which your body handles glucose. The problem arises from the hormone, insulin, which aids your body in storing and using the sugar and fat you consume. A person begins suffering from diabetes when very little or almost no insulin is produced. The problem can also arise when your body does not respond as expected to insulin.
Symptoms and Signs of Diabetes
Diabetes is considered to be a metabolism disorder because metabolism refers to the way in which digested food is used by our body for energy and growth. A substantial part of the food we eat is broken down into glucose which is a primary source of fuel for our body.
Glucose takes the help of insulin to enter the cells in our body. Insulin is a hormone which is released by the pancreas which is an organ located behind our stomach. Once we eat, enough insulin is produced by our body to help the glucose reach the cells. Successful completion of the process will reduce the blood-glucose level in your body to normal.
But when your body does not produce enough insulin or the cells do not respond to the insulin produced by the body or you do not produce any insulin at all, then the glucose levels in your blood remains high because it is unable to reach the cells. It is eventually passed out in urine and your body is unable to get the glucose which is important for your body’s energy and growth requirements. The most common causes for such problems are:
- Family history of diabetes
- Diseases of the pancreas
- Illnesses or infections that may have damaged the pancreas
- Unhealthy lifestyle
Some common symptoms of diabetes are hunger, fatigue, being thirsty most of the times, urinating too often, dry mouth, yeast infections and cuts or sores may take time to heal. These are symptoms that help you identify that you may be suffering from diabetes.
Type 1 Diabetes
People who suffer from Type 1 diabetes are unable to produce insulin. It is not very common and is usually seen among those who are less than 40 years of age.
Type 2 Diabetes
This is the most common type of diabetes. It is stipulated that almost 90% of the people who have diabetes suffer from type 2 diabetes. In his health condition, your body is unable to produce adequate insulin or your body cells have become insulin resistant. This is caused mainly because of the lifestyle you lead. The right treatment can help you control type 2 diabetes.
Women who develop diabetes during pregnancy suffer from gestational diabetes. It can lead to complications during child birth.
Diabetes can be diagnosed with the help of a blood test.
