What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way your body processes glucose, or blood sugar. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, is characterized by insulin resistance, meaning the body does not effectively use the insulin it produces.
Living with diabetes requires careful management to keep blood sugar levels within a healthy range. This includes monitoring blood sugar levels, following a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, taking prescribed medications or insulin, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle overall. Our blog will provide you with practical tips and strategies to help you effectively manage your diabetes and minimize the risk of complications.
Prevention and Risk Factors
While type 1 diabetes cannot be prevented, there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. These include maintaining a healthy weight, eating a nutritious diet, being physically active, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Our blog will explore the various risk factors associated with diabetes and provide guidance on prevention strategies.
Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to a range of complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage, and eye problems. It is crucial to understand the potential complications and take proactive measures to prevent them. Our blog will delve into the common complications of diabetes and offer advice on how to minimize their impact on your health.
