Diabetes: Myths and Facts!

According to the International Diabetes Federation(IDF), about 6 million death occur due to diabetes each year globally. Diabetes is commonly mistaken as a minor disease that doesn’t cause any further health issues, which is a myth. while, the fact is that if diabetes is left untreated then it can affect other organs such as the kidneys, liver, and heart.In this video we will discuss the most common myths about diabetes.1. Myth: People with diabetes can't eat sugar! Fact: This is the most common myth about diabetes, but that's not true.People with diabetes can eat sugar but in limitation instead of eating sugar free diets. Because sugar is essential for body to produce glucose, while excessive sugar intake can lead to high blood glucose. 2. Myth: Only Obese People Can Get Diabetes. Fact: People who are underweight or normal weight can also get diabetes. However, obese people are at higher risk of getting diabetes because, excess fat in the body stops the glucose from being transferred to the cells leading to high blood glucose. 3. Myth: I eat a lot of sweets and sugar daily, I’ll get diabetes. Fact: Eating sugar or sweets in moderation doesn't cause diabetes. But, the amount of carbohydrates you take and the amount of glucose that is made from those sugars can cause insulin resistance and make you overweight and hence increase the risk of diabetes. 4. Myth: Now, my blood sugar is under control, so I don't have to take diabetes medicines. Fact: Diabetes is a disease that can be controlled with a healthy lifestyle and food options, but it doesn't get cured. Instead it keeps progressing, so you should never stop eating diabetes medicine to keep your sugar level in control. 5. Myth: You can't drink alcohol if you are diabetic!Fact: You can drink alcohol in moderation, if you have diabetes. Drinking too much alcohol in diabetes can lead to severe hypoglycemia, a condition where your blood sugar levels drop.Source:-1.8 diabetes myths you shouldn't believe.

Afternoon Exercise Can Help With Type 2 Diabetes!

Looking to control your blood glucose levels and manage your Type 2 diabetes? Exercise might just be the solution you're looking for! But with so many different types of exercise and approaches out there, it can be tough to know where to start. Luckily, a recent study has identified some key parameters that can help guide your exercise routine, including the benefits of aerobics versus weightlifting, the optimal time of day for exercise, and whether to exercise before or after meals.The study found that habitual aerobic exercise, such as cycling, swimming, and walking, is great for managing blood glucose levels. Resistance exercise, which involves working your muscles using an opposing force like dumbbells or resistance bands, is also beneficial for those with Type 2 diabetes as it improves insulin sensitivity. And if you're someone who spends a lot of time sitting down, breaking up your sitting time with movement throughout the day can really help control blood glucose and insulin levels.But when should you be exercising? The study found that exercising later in the day can actually result in better control of blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity. And if you're wondering whether you have to lose weight to see the benefits of exercise, the answer is no! Exercise can lower body fat and increase muscle mass, both of which are beneficial for managing Type 2 diabetes.So if you're one of the 537 million people living with Type 2 diabetes, don't wait any longer to start incorporating exercise into your routine. By doing so, you'll be improving your insulin sensitivity and helping your body use blood glucose more effectively, which can lower blood sugar and prevent serious health problems.Source:-https://www.futurity.org/exercise-time-type-2-diabetes-2938262/Disclaimer:- This information is intended to supplement, not substitute, advice from your healthcare provider or doctor.

How does diabetes affect fertility and pregnancy?

Diabetes can impact fertility and pregnancy due to its effects on hormone regulation and the body's ability to maintain stable blood sugar levels. Let's embark on a fascinating journey into the intricate relationship between diabetes, fertility, and pregnancy.In women with uncontrolled diabetes, irregularities in blood sugar levels can disrupt the delicate hormonal balance necessary for ovulation. High blood sugar levels can affect the release of eggs from the ovaries and impair the maturation of eggs, making it more challenging to conceive. Additionally, diabetes-related complications such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can further contribute to fertility issues.Once pregnancy occurs, the effects of diabetes can extend to both the mother and the growing baby. High blood sugar levels in early pregnancy can increase the risk of birth defects, as the developing baby's organs form during this crucial time.Throughout pregnancy, fluctuating blood sugar levels can pose risks to both the mother and the baby. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to complications such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy), preterm birth, and macrosomia (large birth weight).Proper planning and management, including working with healthcare providers, following a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and taking prescribed medication, can help women with diabetes have a successful pregnancy with good blood sugar control and health outcomes.Disclaimer:- This information is intended to supplement, not substitute, advice from your healthcare provider or doctor.

Simple Blood Test Predicts Heart-Kidney Risk in Type 2 Diabetes!

canagliflozin,Imagine a world where a simple blood test could predict the future of your heart and kidney health if you have Type 2 diabetes. Well, new research published in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation brings us closer to that reality.This study involved over 2,500 individuals with Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease. Researchers identified four special biomarkers in their blood that hold a powerful secret.These biomarkers turned out to be strong predictors of heart and kidney complications. But here's the exciting part – a potential solution emerged.People at the highest risk who took a medication called canagliflozin, which is known as a sodium glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitor, saw their biomarker levels drop. And as a result, their risk of heart failure and other heart problems decreased significantly.Those who took canagliflozin experienced a 3% to 10% decrease in biomarker levels after just one year, compared to those who took a placebo and saw an increase of 6% to 29%.This breakthrough fits like a missing puzzle piece. Doctors can now more accurately predict complications and tailor treatments for people with Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease.But the journey doesn't stop here. More research is needed to fully understand how Type 2 diabetes and kidney disease interact. It's a step closer to personalized care, early interventions, and a healthier future.Sources:-https://www.ahajournals.org/doi/10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.123.065251Disclaimer:-This information is not a substitute for medical advice.

Diabetes in Kids: Tips to Help Your Child Thrive!

Do you know what diabetes is in kids? Specifically type 1 diabetes? It's a condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This can lead to high blood sugar levels, which can be harmful to the body.Now, you might be wondering what causes type 1 diabetes in kids. Well, the exact cause is still unknown, but it's believed to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. It's not caused by poor diet or lifestyle choices, so there's no need to blame yourself or your child.Think of the immune system as the "protector" of our body. In type 1 diabetes, it mistakenly identifies the insulin-producing cells as "enemies" and attacks them, leading to a lack of insulin. Insulin is like a "key" that unlocks cells to allow sugar to enter for energy. Without this key, sugar accumulates in the bloodstream, causing high blood sugar levels.Managing diabetes in kids can seem overwhelming, but it's doable with the right care and support. It involves careful monitoring of blood sugar levels, insulin injections or pumps to replace the missing insulin, and maintaining a balanced diet and active lifestyle. It requires teamwork between the child, parents, healthcare professionals, and educators. But with everyone working together, kids with diabetes can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.Living with diabetes can be tough, especially for kids, but it's important to remember that they can still do anything they want! With proper management and support, they can participate in activities, pursue their dreams, and thrive just like any other child. Let's provide understanding, empathy, and encouragement to children with diabetes, helping them navigate their unique journey with strength and resilience.Disclaimer:- This information is intended to supplement, not substitute, advice from your healthcare provider or doctor.
