Some people are not aware how their lifestyle puts them at risk for type 2 diabetes. Others have a wellness lifestyle. But there are other reasons diabetes can occur.

Podiatrists say people with diabetes should inspect their feet at least once a day for signs of trouble. If you suffer from this disease and cannot reach or see your feet, have a loved one help you. Look for redness, swelling, blisters or wounds that won’t heal. Any of these can be an indication of trouble. So can a foot that is misshapen or warmer or colder than usual.

As nutrition relates directly to your glucose level, it is a very important part of managing your diabetes. It is important to develop a meal plan that properly deals with managing blood glucose levels. We have mentioned in the past several resources for both managing weight and glucose levels.

Oral glucose Tolerance Test: This test measures the response of your body towards sugar. First of all the present blood sugar level of the person is measured. After this a 180 mg dl solution that contains around 175 gm glucose is given to the diabetic. The blood glucose level is then measured after regular intervals of 30 minutes for 6 times. In case the person is non diabetic his blood sugar level does not raise at any time above 140 mg/dl. The level between 140 and 199 suggests that person is pre diabetic. If the level of blood glucose is 200 mg/dl or more than this then the person s suffering from fu;; bloom diabetes.

Over time, given the right support, the cells of your body heal – the fat, muscle and liver cells once again respond normally to insulin and your islet cells become healthy and strong again.

When you are talking about the symptoms of diabetes or the treatment of those symptoms, it makes sense to talk about “diabetes” because those symptoms all arise from the high blood sugar which is common to both types.

Eye problems are a complication caused by diabetes. People that have diabetes are at a higher risk of developing eye problems such as cataracts or glaucoma. If you are diabetic make sure to get regular eyes exams. By doing so, you can catch any potential problem early on before it gets worse.

Remember that your blood sugar is an essential part of your system. It provides no less than the energy that your body uses up! The best way to do it is still prevention. If in case you were already diagnosed with diabetes, there is hope! Just keep that glucose level where it’s supposed to be, live a healthy lifestyle and you will be able to achieve wellness in all aspects.
