Brief Introduction to Diabetes
Physicians or doctors and other medical experts call it Diabetes Mellitus and layman knows it better with the name Diabetes. It is a chronic condition a patient suffers with, where the patient’s body cannot control the glucose level in the body. The food we eat converts into glucose after it is digested and supplies energy to do our daily routine. In brief, it can be said as the condition where a person’s blood glucose levels are above normal. This condition leads to a metabolic disorder where the patient’s body cells starve for food. Inadequate insulin production or cells become inactive responding to insulin are the reasons behind this condition.
Diabetes becomes a lifelong disease. On proper medication, physical exercise and diet can minimize it. A regular check on blood glucose levels and regular doctor consultation can cure it, but nothing happens over at night, it takes time. A diabetic patient should be cautious about cardiovascular disease; they are more prone to it. Blood pressure and cholesterol levels should be checked frequently. As per 2013 worldwide estimation, over 382 million people are suffering with diabetes. Those days are gone where only old aged people are susceptible to diabetes. Now, anyone may it be a teenager or a Middle-aged person or a child can have this disease. Genetics also plays a crucial role, here.
Symptoms of Diabetes
Among numerous patients who are suffering with it, most of them don’t even know that they have this condition until they are medically diagnosed. If they are aware of a few symptoms, then they can avoid further complications. Becoming attentive at the earliest can cure it with a few preventions and with medication, exercise and diet.
Among several symptoms, here, we are listing only a few – frequent urination, extreme hunger, sudden weight loss and excessive thirst. All these are utmost important, which indicates to a person that he/she might have a metabolic disorder. A physician or doctor consultation is required; some people might have no symptoms. This doesn’t mean that they are not suffering with it.
No physical activity, obesity, age, genetics, diet, and environmental factor can cause developing this metabolic disorder.
Types of Diabetes
There are only three types of it to be listed – type 1, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. The first, most commonly children and teenagers suffer with it because of obesity, genetics and other environmental factors. Only 5 to 10% of patients are diagnosed with it. There are some cases where infants are diagnosed with it. In Type 1, there will be no insulin production. We can say it as a dead organ now.
Type 2, the most commonly identified among the three types, it accounts for the percentage 90 to 95%. Here, either a sufficient amount of insulin is not produced or cells disregard insulin we can also say cells had become insulin resistant.
Gestational, we can find only a few cases and only women are prone to it during pregnancy. Usually, after pregnancy this condition fades away. But, when gestational is diagnosed, pregnant women should be more cautious as it can affect the baby. Proper medication and medical care should be taken. It causes because of malnutrition, genetics, and drugs. After it disappears, there is a chance for the occurrence of type 2 if proper care is not taken.
Homeopathy Treatment for Diabetes
Among prolific treatments, homeopathy has proven its efficiency than others treating the disease without any side effects. Using regular drugs for a long-term can make our body become drug resistant and other complications can take existence. But, the scenario with homeopathy is a different aspect. A patient can continue the treatment without suffering any side effects. Overall, betterment in the health condition is observed. Usual medication includes pills and insulin shots, when a patient takes them the glucose level in the blood gets stabilized instantly.
When talking about homeopathy treatment, it works disparately. It treats the patient’s body to make sufficient insulin and it repairs the cells to respond to the insulin. It is a better option for patients to live a healthy life by controlling glucose levels in the blood on a long run.
