Diabetes Information: What Are the Symptoms, Types, Causes and
Treatment of Diabetes! by Gabriel Lawson
in Health / Fitness
Sugar is the enemy of human bodies. The carbohydrates that we eat contain sugar and
when we eat it, it will undergo process in our body. These sugars are what we use for
energy and there are some foods that are pure sugar or contain a lot of sugar which can
cause the sugar level in our body to drastically increase and it can result to diabetes
and other illness.
What is diabetes: diabetes is a disease resulting from the increase of blood sugar level
above its normal values. When the sugars that is suppose to transport into cells of the
body did not do so and transport it into the blood then the person is having diabetes.
The build up sugar is caused by one of the following reasons, if the pancreas is not
producing enough hormones called insulin that helps the glucose get into the cells or
the body cannot make use of the insulin as it is supposed to be. Diabetes is a sickness
that does not exist alone but it attracts other illness into the body of the sufferer. It can
cause complications which include heart disease, blindness, kidney failure and
amputations. This deadly disease has become one of the big worries all over the world.
What are the early sign you will be seeing to know that you have diabetes? And if you
are suffering from any one thing that I am going to mention here please quickly go and
see your doctor. The early signs are extreme hunger and thirst, excessive drying of the
skin, unexplained weight loss, frequent urination, slow healing sores, tingling or
numbness of hands or feet, sudden vision blurredness. When you see these signs, you
need to take immediate solution because failure to do so will attract other diseases like
nausea, vomiting or stomach pains. I will like to tell you the types of diabetes that we
have. We have non - insulin dependent diabetes mellitus or the type 1 diabetes is
commonly developed among children while non - insulin - dependent diabetes mellitus
of the type 2 diabetes is developed among adults. There is also the kind of diabetes that
only pregnant women can acquire. The gestational diabetes, though, is not permanent
because it disappears as soon the pregnancy is over.
Sometimes age is a factor to diabetes, type 2 diabetes is affected by old age, obesity,
family history of the ailment, history of gestational diabetes, impaired glucose tolerance,
lack of physical activities and race or ethnicity.
You also need to know what causes diabetes and research have shown that the things
that causes the acquisition of diabetes, but what I know is that the causes of the type 1
and type 2 are different. Type 1 seemed to be developed from environmental triggers
like unidentified virus that attacks the pancreas and causes it to malfunction in

Keep A Healthy Body And Mind With These Diabetes Tips by Ismael Thompson
in Health (submitted 2012-10-22)
It is not easy to keep on track and healthy when you are dealing with diabetes. Diabetics have
to make significant dietary changes, and also have to regularly monitor their health. A lot of
things can help you deal with this condition. Read this article to get started and find out more
about how you can manage your diabetes.
The glycemic index is a number that all foods have. It lets you know how the food will affect
your blood sugar. Select foods with a low glycemic index.
You have to be meticulous about what you're eating when you have diabetes. Different types of
foods have different effects on your blood sugar levels. Large meals need larger insulin
injections, and smaller meals need smaller injections. If you watch your meals, you can actively
manage your glucose levels.
Even if you are feeling ill and experiencing loss of appetite, being a diabetic makes it especially
important to take care of your body by continuing to eat healthy foods, and monitor your
glucose levels. If your level of glucose is low, make sure you drink plenty of water so that you do
not get dehydrated.
Having a diet with healthy carbohydrates is good for a diabetic. Diets that are very low in
carbohydrates should be avoided, since the body will be robbed of vital nutrients. Adding more
carbs to your diet is a good source of energy.
If you're a diabetic, it is vitally important that you indulge your hunger cravings in a way that is
healthy. You do not have to totally stop eating sweet foods. Keep your blood sugar levels
controlled and you can indulge on occasion. Allow room for the after-dinner treat by cutting
out carbohydrates from your entree.
You should have the ability to identify which foods are high in the glycemic index, which quickly
elevates your blood sugar. Some examples of foods with high glycemic indexes are cereal,
desserts, juices, breads and pasta. Processed foods send your blood sugar on a roller coaster.
Add more fresh vegetables and fruits, meats and fish to your diet.
If you skip meals, your liver tries to compensate by releasing extra glucose to give you energy
when there is not enough food, causing your blood sugar to rise. Regular meals and snacks that
contain carbohydrates will keep extra glucose from being released.
Establish schedules for your meals. If you skip a meal or wait too long, your sugar level will be
dangerously out of control. This can be problematic because when liver glucose interacts with
your already-high blood sugar level, it propels your overall blood sugar level to dangerous
If you suffer from diabetes and you are a smoker, you should try to quit. Smoking is especially
harmful for a diabetic because it has the ability to raise blood sugar to a dangerous level. If you
want to quit and seem to be having a hard time, talk to your doctor.
It is important to lower the stress in your life. Stress and anxiety can raise blood sugar levels in
diabetics. If you are having a particularly stressful day, try doing breathing exercises or yoga to
release some of the stress. You can also learn different exercises in breathing, which provide
great benefits because you can do then anywhere.
Choose a diet containing lots of fiber. It is certain to lower your chances of developing diabetes.
This is a good way to replace high glycemic foods, such as white bread or processed foods by
whole grain foods. Research demonstrates that diets rich in whole grain are at lesser risk of
Keep a few different bags in various places, with your necessary supplies, to make sure you are
alwysy prepared to monitor and treat your blood sugar highs and lows. You'll be ready for
whatever happens if you have a bag handy with your insulin, meter hooks, and syringes in it.
If you have diabetes and like to snack, resisting the "quick fix" snacks in vending machines is
really hard. You should avoid giving in to this temptation. Instead, consume a food with
complex carbohydrates like fruit and vegetables.
You will be required to care for yourself and be close to your health. Although diabetes can be a
tough problem to deal with, this article provides some excellent advice that makes it less
challenging. Build yourself a healthy, sustainable lifestyle in which effective management of
your diabetes keeps it at bay.

When you ignore diabetes: feet and legs by Tom YC
in Health / Diseases and Conditions (submitted 2009-08-10)
In an earlier article I wrote that diabetes is a disease that creeps up on you and before you
know it, a person can be diagnosed with diabetes at quite a late stage. I had suggested that
those in the high-risk group of getting diabetes should be prudent and look through their family
history to find out whether any of their relations have or had this disease. Should any of their
close relatives have diabetes, then the risk for that person had gone up higher than a person
who does not have any relations who do not have diabetes. This is due to the fact that diabetes
is a hereditary disease. I shall talk about other ways whereby a person can get diabetes in
In this article and other follow-up articles, I shall highlight the dangers of diabetes if left
untreated and the possible consequences that may result. I know because I had first hand
experience of it as I had seen both my parents and three of my aunts and an uncle suffered
from diabetes as well as myself. I am not sure about others but even though I knew that I am in
the high-risk group, I refused to believe until I was diagnosed as diabetic. I had early warning
signs but failed to take precautions to avoid it.
Recently, while looking for more information on diabetes, I came across an article "Long-term
consequences of diabetes" by Chris D. Meletis (see Townsend Letter. May 2009 i310 p54(7)).
The article estimated that 23.6 million people in the United States are diabetic. However, what
is scary is that there are another 5.7 million people out there who are not diagnosed even
though they are in the higher risk group of getting diabetes. This is only for the United States
but what about other countries? What are the likely consequences that these people are likely
to face when their conditions are left untreated? This also serves as a warning to those who are
already diagnosed as diabetic but for reasons known to them, refuse to follow-up with the
So what are the possible consequences should one ignore their diabetic condition? Firstly, a
diabetic has to be aware of what diabetes can do to a person's legs and feet, as it will affect
their mobility. Should there be any wound or injury on the legs or feet, do not think that it can
heal by itself. Even if you should self-medicate, my advice is to be careful. Or if there is a small
wound, do not even think that it can be ignored. It takes a long time for an injury or wound to
heal for a diabetic, no matter how small the wound or injury is. I strongly suggest that medical
help be sought immediately. Seek professional medical advice and do not self-medicate unless
medical help is not available. But once medical help is available, ensure that you inform the
medical professional of your wound or injury.
Like I had said, wounds and injuries on a diabetic takes a longer time to heal. If not properly
taken care of, the condition may worsen and the consequence is possible amputation. In one of
my articles, I had mentioned that my late aunt did not take care of her leg that resulted in an
amputation. Nearer home, my own mother, who was also diabetic, had a small ulcer (wound)
on her ankle. We know the danger of an ulcer and brought her to see a doctor. However, the
ulcer just got bigger and refused to heal properly, even with medical help. She had the ulcer for
almost 2-months before her death. So be careful and do not dismiss any wounds, no matter
how slight it may seem to you. Take good care of your feet and legs, as they are valuable to you
and allow you to be mobile. Don't live with regret; take care of your feet and legs now.
To care for your feet make sure that you have proper footwear. Also, wear padded socks to
protect it further. As for your legs, wear pants to protect them. In other words, be properly
attired to ensure protection for both your legs and feet.
Another measure is to check the sole of your feet, if possible, every night. What to look for?
Ensure there are no cracked heels as it can possibly lead to small wounds that may go
unnoticed. Use a good cream to repair the cracked heels. Also look out for any signs of wounds.
If you are not able to examine it closely, have someone check it for you. This is one of the
simplest self-check that you can do. Do not let laziness prevent you from carrying out this
check. You will be thankful that you had done it as you can detect problems early and seek
medical attention. To obtain more information on diabetes, please visit

Controlling and Preventing Diabetes and Diabetic Symptoms, Naturally.
By Vic Graham in Business (submitted 2011-09-26)
In an awfully vital attempt in regulating and forbidding diabetes and the signs of diabetes
several studies have disclosed 3 mechanisms which have for the most part benefited the
balancing of glucose in the blood, thereby lessening the disproportion in glucose levels, and
thus may also control the signs of diabetes, and other diabetic symptoms, or the cause of
diabetes. As these levels get uniform the cause of diabetes or any diabetic symptoms are either
structured or prevented.
The 3 mechanisms which have been detected to downgrade the fluctuations in blood glucose
are (1) The slowing down of Carbohydrate Absorption. (2) The reduction of the Glycemic Index
of food, and (3) Improving the Sensitivity of Insulin in the body.
1: Delaying The Absorption of Carbohydrates.
In order to delay the saturation of carbohayrates, the foods consumed must have a big measure
of viscous soluble fiber. When this product or food with soluble fiber is consumed right ahead
of a meal, the soluble fiber forms a gel-matrix in the digestive tract.
Thus as the gel-matrix is immediately in the system ahead of the meal, the saturation from the
food from the meal is delayed and over time may reduce or avoid any signs of diabetes, other
diabetic symptoms, signs of diabetes, or the originator of diabetes.
This delayed saturation happens because the soluble fiber matrix forms a slimy complex which
engulfs the food, including carbohydrates and defends it from the digestive process.
Infact, the food, containing carbohydrates are lazily pulled along with the fiber matrix
throughout the digestive tract forbidding all the food from doubtlessly being absorbed at the
initial areas of the intestines. This process is essential in preventing the cause of diabetes, or
any signs of diabetes.
owing to this detained saturation, there is little sugar (glucose) being absorbed at the same
time, therefore providing an effective and reliable glucose level balance in the blood, and thus
may boost in limiting the cause of diabetes, diabetic symptoms or any signs of diabetes.
But keep in mind that this does not mean that the complete amount of food or carbohydrates
are not absorbed. This is just an compelling way in procrastinating the saturation over a longer
period of time thus controlling and preventing too many highs and lows as food is ingested,
thereby forbidding or controlling any signs of diabetes, or the cause of diabetes.
2: Reducing The Glycemic Index of Foods
Owing to the fact that all foods in particular contain distinct amounts of carbohydrates, the
ingestion of distinct foods may have different effects on blood sugar (glucose) levels,
consequently affecting any signs of diabetes, diabetic symptoms and the cause of diabetes. Not
to mention that there are also distinct kinds of carbohydrates in foods, consequently
complicating the action of digestion and absorption and that may act on glucose levels and in
some way signs of diabetes, or the consequence of diabetes.
As a result of the circumstance that some carbohydrates are much easier to be digested by
enzymes in the digestive tract than others, and that some carbohydrates in foods are more
susceptible to digestion in the stomach, this provides the need for an effective index to
measure the results on our blood glucose levels of food, in an endeavor to avert the
consequence of diabetes, any signs of diabetes, or diabetic symptoms requiring the need for a
Glycemic index of Foods.
The Glycemic index of foods in reality describes the glucose result of a specific food. The
Glycemic index of pure glucose is 100, which is the greatest number to be found. This is so
because pure glucose has the fastest and best absorption rate in the digestive tract, and can be
greatly important in governing the signs of diabetes, or the cause of diabetes.
The greater the Glycemic index of any food, it's the more excellent the effect of that particular
food on glucose values and the rise of blood, energy and possibly cause of diabetes. Accordingly
the desire to completely appreciate and be knowledgeable of the Glycemic index of foods in its
duty in prohibiting diabetes, the cause of diabetes, or any diabetic symptoms.
Because foods with a greater Glycemic index raises the blood glucose level, folks who chooses
to lose weight or to prevent any signs of diabetes are earnestly looking to eat only foods with a
low Glycemic index.
Low (G.I) means a decreased supply of glucose in the blood, consequently creating less energy
for the cells to eat up, resulting in perhaps weight stabalization, weight loss or even limiting
diabetic symptoms, signs of diabetes or the cause of diabetes.
