When the blood sugar levels in the body start to peak upwards we term it as a metabolic disease called diabetes. Diabetes is caused because the pancreatic cells are unable to produce sufficient insulin in the body. The insulin helps in balancing the glucose levels in the body and keeps it healthy. Diabetes is characterized by excessive hunger, excessive thirst, excessive sweating, and excessive urination. A simple blood test can help a person get to know about the glucose levels prevalent in the blood.
Diabetes Mellitus is hereditary and this metabolic disorder can affect the cardiovascular system, eyes, high blood pressure levels, and high cholesterol etc. Wounds take a long time to heal in people who are suffering from diabetes. The earlier the blood test for glucose levels is carried out, the better it is. Timely diagnosis means better health and better glucose maintenance. The blood sugar disease, Diabetes Mellitus, occurs when the sugar levels in the body keep rising beyond proportion and it can reach life threatening levels. To maintain these levels it is imperative to introduce lifestyle management and exercise in life.
The pancreas has to keep producing insulin to balance glucose levels of the body and if the amounts of this hormone are insufficient, then the body shows higher sugar levels. Perspiration, tremors and tingling or numbness in fingers, feet and hands start to make the person feel uncomfortable. The body starts to lose on the essential nutrients and healing of wounds takes ages. The weight and stamina reduce drastically and men often encounter sexual dysfunctions.
People may have diabetes since birth or they may develop it. Sometimes the pancreas does not produce insulin at all, and at times like this artificial insulin is needed to balance the augmenting sugar levels. Insulin may be administered in the form of tablets or injections. This chemical based insulin helps control sugar. This stage where there insulin is not produced by the pancreatic cells is termed as Type 1 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes occurs when the insulin amounts are secreted but they are insufficient and do not balance the sugar levels. It’s a must to live a life free of stress, alcohol, smoking, or else the diabetic person may suffer from high cholesterol, high blood pressure levels and may also face organ damage because of cardio vascular diseases.
Type 2 diabetes, is a lifestyle problem and to control the glucose levels it’s a must to exercise, improve food habits and change lifestyle. To keep the sugar levels controlled eat bitter gourd, neem leaves, amla powder, etc. Yoga and meditation can also help control rising sugar levels by reducing stress.
Baba Ramdev ‘s Divya Madhunashini vati, is a diabetes ayurvedic cure and medicine that prompts the cells of the pancreas to produce insulin. This medicine also helps in metabolizing glucose. Baba Ramdev’s Divya shilajeet sat has medicinal herbs that have shown to improve the metabolic system of the body and this then helps in maintain the sugar levels properly by carrying out glucose metabolism.
