Managing Diabetes For Busy People

Aug 23, 2008
Diagnosis of diabetes is occurring at phenomenal rates in the United States today. Diabetes could be considered an epidemic. It is sad to learn that many in the U.S. don't even know that they are at risk for diabetes or pre diabetes. You may have diabetes and not know it or be in jeopardy of getting it and not know it either. Adult onset diabetes is called Type II diabetes. You should do whatever you can to prevent this from happening. At the very least managing diabetes should be your objective.

To figure out whether you are an American that is in this group you should have your blood glucose sugar levels checked. A blood sugar of 126/140 mg/dl for more than one test in a row is considered a person with diabetes. People who do not have blood sugar diabetes have levels between 70 and 110 mg/dl after a fasting blood test.

Why does Type II Diabetes occur? It occurs in mostly in fat people, but not always, and who do not take physical care of themselves. Also Type II occurs in older people. A person may have a first line relative that has diabetes so heredity weighs in too.

Making lifestyle changes like exercising for 20 minutes a day, and controlling your diet may be all a person needs to do to control blood sugar levels. For Type II diabetes treatment always get regular blood tests so that you can manage your progress. You do not want to be at risk! If you think you are at risk then get looked at by a physician. Managing diabetes and preventing it should be a major concern.

As always educate yourself. Talk to your doctor and the druggist. You may be at risk and not even know it. Have blood tests done regularly. New products and services are released everyday that focus on helping Type II patients manage their blood sugar levels. Also be on the lookout for free testing offered at malls and drug stores in your area.

Weight loss surgery such as Gastric Bypass or GBS has been known to help normalize blood sugar in obese patients. This new development is too astounding to just overlook. It has been reported that after surgery 80 percent of patients experience normal blood sugar levels.

There are some homeopathic alternatives to consider as well like vitamins and supplements. Be warned though that any home treatments should be in combination with your doctor.

With proper education and control a person can avoid and manage blood sugar levels in an effort to live a normal life and avoid the complications of diabetes.
