Diabetes

If you have diabetes, it means you have too much glucose in your blood

Chronic diabetes conditions include type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
Potentially reversible diabetes conditions include
1. Prediabetes
when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes. This can be treated with our diet chart alone.
2. Gestational diabetes
Which occurs during pregnancy but may resolve after the baby is delivered. If persist after delivery then you require our treatment.
3. Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 Diabetes occurs in people under the age of 20, but may occur at any age.
Here the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas (called beta cells) are destroyed by the immune system. They produce no insulin and must use insulin injections to control their blood sugar. Here you have to be on insulin and we can give you symptomatic treatment.
4. Type 2 Diabetes
With Type 2 Diabetes, the body continues to produce insulin, although insulin production by the body may significantly decrease over time. The pancreas produces either not enough insulin, or the body is unable to recognize insulin and use it properly. When there isn’t enough insulin or the insulin is not used as it should be, glucose can’t get into the body’s cells to be used as energy.This glucose then builds up in the blood.. Your kidneys are forced to work overtime to filter and absorb the excess sugar. If your kidneys can’t keep up, the excess will start excreting into your urine along with fluids drawn from your tissues. This triggers more frequent urination, which may leave you dehydrated. As you drink more fluids to quench your thirst, you’ll urinate even more .
We can give cure depends on stage of disease.
Early symptoms of diabetes, especially type 2 diabetes, can be subtle or seemingly harmless — if you have symptoms at all. Over time, however, you may develop diabetes complications, even if you haven’t had diabetes symptoms.
Symptoms
•Excessive thirst and increased urination
•Fatigue
•Weight loss
•For women, bladder and vaginal infections are especially common.
In Advanced Stage
•Blurred vision

High levels of blood sugar pull fluid from your tissues, including the lenses of your eyes. This affects your ability to focus.
Left untreated, diabetes can cause new blood vessels to form in your retina — the back part of your eye — and damage established vessels. For most people, these early changes do not cause vision problems. However, if these changes progress undetected, they can lead to vision loss and blindness.
•Slow-healing sores or frequent infections
•Tingling hands and feet
Excess sugar in your blood can lead to nerve damage. You may notice tingling and loss of sensation in your hands and feet, as well as burning pain in your arms, hands, legs and feet.
•Red, swollen, tender gums
Diabetes may weaken your ability to fight germs, which increases the risk of infection in your gums and in the bones that hold your teeth in place. your teeth may become loose, or you may develop sores or pockets of pus in your gums — especially if you have a gum infection before diabetes develops.
