Diabetes – Symptoms, risk factors and cure

What is diabetes and why it appears?

Diabetes is a chronic disease characterized by elevated levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. The level of glucose in the blood is controlled by insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas. The task of insulin is to assist in the movement of glucose from the blood into the cells, where it breaks down and transforms into energy.

People who suffer from diabetes, regardless of the type, have elevated glucose because their body cannot transfer glucose into cells.


TYPES OF DIABETES

There are three main types of diabetes:

Type 1 – insulin dependent diabetes its autoimmune disease with genetic predisposition. It occurs at any age, but most often in children, teenagers or young adults. In this type of diabetes the pancreas don’t produce insulin or produce little amount.

Type 2 – non-insulin dependent diabetes it’s the most common form of diabetes. Mostly affects adults, but in recent years appears in teenagers and young adults because of excessive weight gain. In this type of diabetes, the pancreas produces insulin often, but either this amount is sufficient for the needs of the organism or cells are resistant to insulin.

Gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes is characterized by high levels of glucose in the blood and occurs in any period of pregnancy in women who had never suffered from diabetes. This condition must be controlled because it can affect the normal growth and development of the baby. Approximately 2-4% of pregnant women are affected by gestational diabetes.

SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS
They depending on the level of sugar in the blood, but people with type 2 diabetes, despite the increased blood glucose, may initially have no symptoms. People with type 1 diabetes, the symptoms usually manifest faster and in a more severe form. Some of the signs and symptoms:

  • Increased thirst;
  • Frequent urination;
  • Increased appetite;
  • Unexplained weight loss;
  • Fatigue;
  • Blurred vision;
  • Slow healing of wounds;
  • Mildly elevated blood pressure;
  • Common (infections palate, skin, vagina, bladder);
  • The presence of ketones in the urine (ketones – products resulting from the breakdown of muscle and adipose tissue due to lack of insulin).

RISK FACTORS
Depends on the type of disease.

– Risk factors for type 1:

  • The presence of antibodies;
  • Exposure to certain viral diseases;
  • Increased intake of vitamin D;
  • Giving cow’s milk at an early age.

– Risk factors for type 2:

  • Obesity;
  • Reduced physical activity;
  • Diagnosed with type 2 in a family member – a parent, brother or sister;
  • Gestational diabetes in a previous pregnancy;
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome;
  • High blood pressure;
  • High cholesterol;
  • High triglycerides.

– Risk factors for gestational diabetes:

  • Women older than 25 years;
  • Diagnosed with type 2 in a family member – a parent, brother or sister;
  • Gestational diabetes in a previous pregnancy;
  • The birth of a baby with a big weight (more than 4kg);
  • Obesity;
  • Great weight gain during pregnancy.

CURES (Diabetes treatments)

– Centaurium erythraea tea
In 700 milliliters of boiling water put 5 grams red centaurium and 5 grams of common wormwood. Let it stay for 7-8 minutes. After 8 minutes filter the liquid. From this tea drink the whole amount during the day, sip by sip.

– Tincture of white mistletoe
Put 200 grams of dry leaves and branches of white mistletoe in a jar and cover them with 1 liter of strong brandy. Allow it to stand for 3 weeks at room temperature. After three weeks, filter the liquid. Tincture is taken in 1 teaspoon dissolved in 200 milliliters of water, 2-3 times a day.

– Consume tomatoes – Consuming tomatoes can prevent from diabetes to occurs, also it prevents some types of cancer.

– Beer yeast for diabetes – dates from 1853 when Bristol doctor prescribed beer yeast to a diabetic patient. After 6 weeks, the patient experienced relief of symptoms of diabetes. Modern research believes that beer yeast helps to improve glucose levels by increasing the amount of chromium in the body. Chromium is a mineral known to improve glucose tolerance within patients with type 2 diabetes and also can improve insulin sensitivity.
