The Truth About Diabetes Disorder

May 1, 2008
Everyone needs food for energy but this does not always happen especially when a person suffers with diabetes. We must all have glucose to provide us with sufficient energy to carry out everyday tasks. As glucose is the fuel our body needs to survive it is imperative that it is able to be transported by the blood without any problems, something which diabetes stops. If this situation remains unchecked, levels of glucose in the blood increase to dangerous levels.

Information in this article is regarding the two major types of the condition. Mainly affecting children and young adults, type 1 or juvenile onset diabetes occurs when insulin production stops completely; this results in the diabetic requiring an insulin injection every day to stay healthy and alive. Insulin is a hormone that regulates the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood and is required for the body to function normally. The second type is called adult onset diabetes and happens later in life; this is caused when the insulin is either not being produced in sufficient quantities or there is a problem in its use, however a careful diet plan can usually treat the condition.

To stay alive we need energy, something which is supplied in abundance by everyday foods like various pastas, bread, potatoes, rice and fruit for instance. Some serious conditions can result from excess levels of glucose in the blood including blindness, heart and kidney disease and even the removal of limbs. By sticking to a diabetes health care regime, most of these conditions can be helped; these conditions will vary form person to person but most should see improvements with some complaints halted altogether. Managing this condition means changing your lifestyle to suit your condition any medication that has been prescribed; this includes watching your blood sugar levels, blood fat and cholesterol in addition to quitting smoking.

Stable weight is also a requirement that will help ensure your blood pressure is maintained at a health level. Diabetes once recognized in the sufferer will be with them for the rest of their lives; there are currently over five and half million Americans who have been diagnosed with this, and the numbers are rising.

The frightening thing is that it is estimated that at least the same number of people has this condition but just don't know it yet; there are more than 600,000 new cases every year so the situation is worsening. It is believed that as many as 320,000 diabetics die each year in America whilst only 34,000 of those actually die directly from the condition itself.
