Diabetes is becoming one of the most common lifestyle-related disorders that affect both urban and rural areas alike. This can be due to overeating, obesity, stressful, busy, and sedentary lifestyles that lead to the early symptoms of diabetes. This includes the lack of proper nutrition that can lead to impaired glucose metabolism. Heredity is also a major factor in the development of the disease. It’s easy to misunderstand that eating too much refined sugar can lead to diabetes, but that’s not the case. Excessive intake of protein and fat is eventually metabolized and converted to glucose, which can lead to the development of diabetes.
Diabetes is characterized by elevated levels of glucose in the blood and urine. It has two types:
- Type 1: Existed from birth due to complete lack of insulin
- Type 2: Onset later due to insulin deficiency
There are also other variants such as gestational diabetes that occur during pregnancy. Read more about it here: https://goqii.com/blog/what-gestational-diabetes-can-do-to-you-your-unborn-child/
It is important to diagnose and treat the disease as soon as possible, as untreated or unmanaged diabetes begins to gradually affect the function of key organs such as the heart, kidneys, brain, nervous system and eyes.
How can I diagnose it?
It is diagnosed by a fasting blood glucose level (normal value is 80 to 120 mg / blood 100 ml) and a blood test 2 hours after meal (normal value, 140 mg / blood 100 ml). ) Is measured. Now, even before testing blood sugar levels, there are certain signs and symptoms that our body shows, which indicates the development of diabetes.
Early Signs and Symptoms of Diabetes
- 3P: Polyphagia (increased hunger), polydipsia (increased thirst), polyuria (increased urination). Remember these three Ps and see if you are experiencing them.
- Weight loss: Very rapid weight loss is seen despite increased hunger, which is also a warning symptom. This is due to the loss of glucose in the urine. Also, due to lack of insulin, the available glucose is not being used to provide energy and function, and the body is beginning to utilize the glucose stored in muscles and organs.
- Tired: Weight loss due to this condition leads to early malaise. People get tired easily both mentally and physically.
- Thirst: Despite drinking more water, there is dryness in the mouth.
- Pallor: Appears due to anemia.
- Frequent infections and delayed wound healing: Caused by an excess of glucose in the blood.
- Decreased libido.
In its early stages, you can easily prevent further progression to full-blown diabetes in the following ways:
- Regular exercise: At least 30 minutes to maintain optimal weight. Join the light game.
- Appropriate diet: This includes salads with meals (which slows digestion and prevents immediate spikes in blood sugar levels) and excludes refined sugars, alcohol, smoking and high-fat foods.
- Yoga and meditation: Pay attention to the stress level and prevent the disease from getting worse. Pranayama In addition, certain yoga asanas, such as Bujangasana and Salbangasana, help stimulate the pancreas to produce insulin.
There are certain home remedies that can be used as a supportive measure. I would like to explain two of the most important here.
- Bitter gourd (carrera): Very useful for the treatment of diabetes. It contains an insulin-like principle known as plant insulin that has been found to be effective in lowering blood and urinary sugar levels.
- Jumble fruit (jamun): Seeds contain the glycoside “jumboline”, which has the power to check the pathological conversion of starch to sugar when glucose production is increased. In the homeopathic medicine system, there are highly effective medicines prepared from this fruit to treat diabetes.
