Title : Living with Diabetes

Diabetes cannot be cured…
Accepting this reality is the first step in coping with diabetes. If you do not control your diabetes, then diabetes will control your life. In the short term, it adversely affects your quality of life and prevents you from leading a normal life, by making you feel exhausted, dizzy, irritable, hungry, thirsty and with a frequent need to urinate. In the long term, it silently cause irreversible damage to multiple organs like the eyes, nerves, kidneys, heart and blood vessels. It is the leading cause for blindness, heart attack, kidney failure and foot infections that may require amputation.

But Diabetes can be controlled.
A tight control on your diet and lifestyle along with moderate but regular exercise, can help you take care of your complications and allow you to lead a normal, healthy life.

What is Diabetes ?
Diabetes is a disease that causes the level of sugar in the blood to rise. Our body converts the food we eat into sugar. Insulin, produced by the pancreas, helps our tissues to absorb the sugar from our blood so that the cells can use it for producing energy.

Type 1 Diabetes
The type 1 diabetes or Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus occurs more often among young people. They must take insulin by injection, because their body either does not make insulin at all or does not
make enough of it.

Type 2 Diabetes
In case of type 2 diabetes or Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes mellitus, the body makes insulin but this insulin does not function properly. This disease often strikes in adulthood, occurring in people with a strong family history of diabetes. It is most common among people who are overweight.
