Diabetes - Symptoms & prevention  - Diabetes affects your vital organs. We need to make changes in our lifestyle to avoid health risks. Exercise, as well as a nutritious diet, are important for managing or avoiding diabetes.

 

Diabetes is one of the diseases caused by an unhealthy lifestyle. Diabetes has literally engulfed Indians and India is becoming the world capital of diabetes. Let's understand what is diabetes.  There are two types of diabetes, type 1 and type 2. In type 1, the body does not secrete insulin or it secretes very little insulin hence the patient cannot live without an injection of insulin. In type 2, insulin is secreted less, but in these patients, the pills can help control diabetes. 

For type 2 diabetes it is mainly hereditary, children are more likely to get it If a mother, father, or family member has diabetes. Diabetes usually starts between the ages of 40 and 50. Obese people are more likely to develop diabetes if they have high blood pressure and cholesterol.

Pregnant woman & diabetes ... 

If the mother has gestational diabetes, the baby is also more likely to have diabetes. Not only that, women who have diabetes while the baby is in the womb are generally more likely to get diabetes after ten to fifteen years. The older the mother at the time of the first delivery, the higher the risk of gestational diabetes. Changes in diet, lack of fiber in the diet, alcohol or smoking addiction, mental and physical stress, etc. can cause this disease.

Measures to avoid side effects

Reduce the intake of fats to control cholesterol in the body. Medications should be taken if necessary. Consult a doctor from time to time, and follow Doctor's advice on regular investigations. By doing all this, you can either protect yourself from getting diabetes or you can take care of it and avoid the bad effects of diabetes.


Symptoms of diabetes

Symptoms of diabetes include increased appetite, increased thirst, increased urination,  healing of wounds, tingling in the legs, burning sensation in the urine, vaginal infections, fatigue, and desire to eat more sweets. Diabetes is sometimes diagnosed as a pre-operative sugar test. Diabetes affects almost all the vital organs in the body. It mainly affects the kidneys, heart, retina, leg nerves, blood vessels to the legs.


What should be the blood sugar level

In diabetes, the ever-increasing amount of sugar affects all the vital organs and causes its disorders. Fasting blood sugar is a sugar test that is usually done after fasting for eight to ten hours. That blood sugar should be less than a hundred. Two hours after a meal, blood sugar should be less than 140. If the blood sugar is higher than this, the chances of diabetes are higher.


Preventive measures

People think that eating too much sugar causes diabetes, but this is not the case. The principle is not to eat sweets if you have diabetes. Eat a balanced diet. Do not eat if you are not hungry. Reduce the number of fried foods in the meal. Exercise regularly. Walking for 30-45 minutes every day is an easy exercise, mainly brisk walking is highly recommended.

Don’t neglect health

If you are using a car, park your car at distance and walk. Some people like to go to the gym and exercise. Managing stress is also one of the important factors. Pranayama, meditation can help manage stress. In case of diabetes, take pills or insulin regularly as advised by the doctor. Try to keep blood sugar levels as normal as possible. Medications should be taken regularly in case of high blood pressure.
