A healthy lifestyle, moderate but regular exercise and a balanced diet may serve as a key to avoid Diabetes

Diabetes is essentially the body’s inability to deal with sugar in the bloodstream. Diabetes is a disease that strikes more people every year and the increase seems to continue. The body changes most of the food you eat into glucose. The blood takes the glucose to the cells throughout the body. The glucose needs insulin to get into body’s cells. Insulin helps the glucose from food get into body cells. If not controlled, diabetes can lead to blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, amputations and nerve damage. In women, it can cause problem during pregnancy. There are two reasons:

– Either the pancreas does not produce enough insulin to break down the sugar in the body. It is also called Type I diabetes whereby the patient has to inject insulin into his body. It is caused by an auto immune reaction where the body’s defense system attacks the insulin producing cells.
– Insulin being produced is insufficient. It is also called Type II diabetes. It is when the body does not or cannot use the insulin effectively. It is often related to lifestyle and eating pattern.

Diabetes is quite capable to affect all the parts of the body and their functions. Diabetes Mellitus is a disease in which abnormally high levels of sugar in the blood are seen. When the amount of glucose in the blood increases, it triggers the release of the hormone insulin from the pancreas. Insulin stimulates muscle and fat cells to remove glucose from the blood and stimulates the liver to metabolize glucose, causing the blood sugar level to decrease to normal range.

As a result of the steady percolation of sugar rich blood the functioning of nearly all the vital organs is impacted and over time, diabetes begins to dramatically impact and invariably damage the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, eyes and the nervous system. Diabetes is not age dependent. It can affect young as well as old.

A healthy lifestyle, moderate but regular exercise and a balanced diet may serve as a key to avoid a disease.
– Indulge in brisk walking for minimum of 30 minutes, 5 times a week.
– Maintain an ideal body weight.
