To Prevent Diabetes – know its symptoms
Diabetes is an epidemic disease in India. In which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high.
Diabetes is also referred as Diabetes mellitus (DM), is a group of metabolic diseases in which there ae high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period. Symptoms of high blood sugar include frequent urination, increased thirst, and increased hunger. If left untreated, diabetes can cause many complications. Acute complications can include diabetic ketoacidosis, nonketotic hyperosmolar coma, or death. Serious long-term complications include heart diseases, stroke, chronic kidney failure, foot ulcers, and damage to the eyes.
Diabetes is due to either the pancreas not producing enough insulin or the cells of the body not responding properly to the insulin produced.There are three main types of diabetes mellitus:
- Type 1 : – Results from the pancreas’s failure to produce enough insulin. This form was previously referred to as “insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” (IDDM) or “juvenile diabetes”. The cause is unknown.
- Type 2 : – begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which cells fail to respond to insulin properly.As the disease progresses a lack of insulin may also develop.This form was previously referred to as “noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus” (NIDDM) or “adult-onset diabetes”. The most common cause is excessive body weight and not enough exercise.
- Gestational diabetes is the third main form and occurs when pregnant women without a previous history of diabetes develop high blood sugar levels.
The best way is to know what its early symptoms are so that you can take the necessary measures and actions to reverse it.
Pre-diabetes is the general term used for early diabetes symptoms. In this medical condition, the blood sugar levels of a person do not reach the certain level where a patient can be said to be a victim of Type 2 diabetes. The most difficult part is that pre-diabetes does not show early symptoms and hence more often than not the disease engulfs a person undetected. It is only when the blood sugar levels reach alarming proportions that a person realizes that he has been affected by type 2 Diabetes. So, it is ideal for you to recognize the early symptoms of diabetes to prevent elevated risks that could even turn out to be fatal at times.
Early diabetic symptoms are
- Feeling thirsty even after drinking lots of water.

Food the restrain Diabetes.
- Beans: Beans (including black, white, navy, lima, pinto, garbanzo, soy, and kidney) are a winning combination of high-quality carbohydrates, lean protein, and soluble fiber that helps stabilize your body’s blood-sugar levels and keeps hunger in check. Beans are also inexpensive, versatile, and virtually fat-free.
- Green and leafy vegetables: Spinach and other green leafy veggies may reduce type 2 diabetes risk because of their high concentrations of polyphenols and vitamin C, both of which have antioxidant properties. They also contain magnesium, which may further reduce risk
- Berries: The diabetic exchange for blueberries is 3/4 cup. The diabetic exchange for blackberries is 3/4 cup. The diabetic exchange for raspberries is 1 cup. Important to note: fruits such as berries contain fructose, a natural sugar that doesn’t require insulin to be metabolized, so fruit tends to be well-tolerated.
- Fish: The richest dietary source of omega-3 fatty acids is oily cold-water fish such as salmon, sardines, mackerel, and herring. … Studies have shown that fish oil supplements may lower triglyceride levels in people with Type 2 diabetes, which could lower their risk of heart disease
- Whole grains: Whole grains are good sources of fiber, which can help slow the absorption of glucose into the blood. Plus, they’re packed with vitamins and minerals, making them a better choice than refined carbohydrates for people with type 2 diabetes.
- Nuts: New research from Louisiana State University found that people who regularly eat tree nuts — including almonds, macadamias, pistachios, walnuts, and cashews — have lower risks for Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Their C-reactive protein (a major marker of inflammation) levels were lower.
- Olive oil: Extra virgin olive oil reduces blood sugar and cholesterol more than other kinds of fats, according to new research. The study, conducted at Sapienza University in Rome, could explain the health benefits associated with a traditional Mediterranean diet for people with diabetes
- Yogurt: Yogurt Every Day May Help Keep Diabetes Away. TUESDAY, Nov. 25, 2014 (HealthDay News) — Eating a serving a day of yogurt may lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, new research suggests.
- Cinnamon: In one study, volunteers ate from 1 to 6 grams of cinnamon for 40 days. (One gram of ground cinnamon is about half a teaspoon.) The researchers found that cinnamon cut cholesterol by about 18% and blood sugar levels by 24%. But in other studies, the spice did not lower blood sugar or cholesterol levels.
- Sweet potatoes: The glycemic index of sweet potatoes is a lot lower, which is better for diabetes control, according to a 2002 article in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.” Eating sweet potatoes in moderate amounts will help you keep your blood sugar levels in the healthy range even if you have diabetes
