Diabetes is a condition in which body either does not produce enough, or doesn’t respond properly to insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas. Insulin enables cells to absorb glucose and turn it into energy. This causes glucose to add and build up in the blood (hyperglycemia), leading to various potential complications.
Diagnosing diabetes is vital not only to manage their condition for the long term, but also to ensure that you do not end the suffering of some of the effects of this terrible disease, which can lead to blindness and amputation to name a few. Now, although the opening line may seem a bit scary let me put in place, saying that although there is no cure for diabetes, the lifestyle and health care remedy this condition can be kept under control very well so even if you have that you should be able to live a life almost as if he were not there.
Before we get to diagnose diabetes, I first must point out; there are two types of diabetes. Type 1, which is often found in young people and is possibly more of a hereditary condition, and type 2. Type 2 is likely to become an epidemic, since it is often self-inflicted condition that is caused by poor food choices that often lead to obesity and this is strongly linked to type 2 diabetes, and say its close epidemic due to the alarming rate at which obesity is growing.
The first steps to diagnose diabetes are the attention to signs such as frequent urination (especially at night), extreme thirst, unexplained weight loss and blurred vision. If you notice these signs, then you should see a doctor immediately so they can start testing to see if you have diabetes.
The tests are generally blood or urine tests to measure glucose in the body. The reason for this is to check the insulin resistance, as this may eventually lead to impaired glucose tolerance, and stop doing their job is to strictly monitor the amount of sugar in the blood and keep it within a range narrow. Resistance occurs when there is plenty of insulin from the pancreas so (it is functioning normally and doing too much insulin), but the body's cells are resistant to its action reflected in the level of blood sugar being too high.
The good news out of all this is that if you are diagnosed with diabetes, you can control it with natural remedies. However, you probably want to keep your blood sugar level as normal as possible, and this is covered by the life changes to play. The main cause of excess blood sugar is refined white flour and white sugar. Our bodies are not accustomed to them in the way they are, but why we end up with it for so long is because we never put them in our bodies at the rate we do now. With cakes and white bread and sugar in plenty going on all (including frozen foods), then you have to be more vigilant than ever about what you eat to keep your diabetes under control and live a healthy life.
Remedies to control diabetes problem: Add starchy foods such as dried beans and bean soups and casseroles to increase intake of starch in food, because it will have a positive effect on the level of blood sugar.
Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables for soluble fiber helps reduce diabetic complications and for the absorption of glucose in the intestine.
Control your weight for type 2 diabetes it particularly important because extra body fat causes the body to have difficulty making and using insulin. Low fat recipes help you to lose weight and control weight, if you lose a few pounds, you may even be able to reduce medication.
