A life without diabetes complications... 

Diabetes is a disorder in which the levels of blood sugar (glucose) is abnormally high, as a result of the body's inability to secrete insulin in sufficient quantities, or the body's inability to respond to insulin normally. 

Diabetes is divided into two types, and there is also what is called prediabetes: 

  • Prediabetes: 

 At this stage, blood glucose levels are abnormally high for the body, but it is not possible to admit diabetes because it is not high in a proportion of high risk. 

  • Insulin resistance: 

In this stage, body cells do not fully respond to insulin, the pancreas may produce insulin, but it is not in sufficient quantities to overcome the insulin resistance. 

The most important symptoms are: 

  • Increased sense of extreme thirst. 

  • Frequent urination and not feeling comfortable after urinating. 

  • Extreme hunger. 

  • Confusion and blurry vision. 

  • Slow healing of wounds and injuries. 

  • Recurring infections. 

  • Diabetes (Type II) 

In this type or stage, the pancreas stops producing sufficient amounts of insulin, and the blood glucose level rises abnormally and confirms the incidence of type 2 diabetes, which is the most common type. 

In the case of type 2 diabetes, symptoms develop very quickly. Symptoms can develop in a few days or weeks and the symptoms are obvious, including: 

  • An intense need to urinate. 

  • Lack of control and control of the bladder. 

  • The need to drink fluids. 

  • Excessive thirst. 

  • Extreme hunger. 

  • Blurred vision. 

  • Significant weight loss. 

  • Mood changes and irritability. 

  • Diabetes has many complications including; 

  • Retinopathy and deterioration of vision. 

  • Gangrene of the foot in the absence of follow-up and examination regularly. 

  • High incidence of strokes and heart attack. 

  • Kidney disease due to high blood sugar levels. 

 

So, start maintaining your health and protect yourself from diabetes by following prevention methods, including: 

  • Maintain a healthy weight without gaining more. 

  • Practice sport regularly. 

  • Eat a healthy diet rich in vegetables and fiber. 

  • Reduce your intake of sugars and starches. 

  • Drink plenty of water. 

  • Stop smoking. 

  • Take vitamins, especially replace vitamin D.
