Health Blog Topic For The Day : Diabetes
Diabetes is a topic that many would like to know more about and as it is, there is plenty of information out there on this subject.
What I will do is pull some information from various sources and give some overviews and information about the disease and supply references to sites and organizations that are much more knowledgeable on this subject then what I’ll ever be.
This information should not be used to decide whether or not you have diabetes. Only your health care provider has the knowledge and training to tell you that.
As stated above, this information is only a brief summary of general information about diabetes.
Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat.
Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin.
With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well.
Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood. You can also have prediabetes. This means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. Having prediabetes puts you at a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes.
Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb. Pregnant women can also get diabetes, called gestational diabetes.
Blood tests can show if you have diabetes. One type of test, the A1C, can also check on how you are managing your diabetes. Exercise, weight control and sticking to your meal plan can help control your diabetes
If your health care provider suggest it, you should also monitor your blood glucose level and take medicine if prescribed.
