Are You at Risk?

Spacer Gif

You may be at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes if any of the following apply to you:

  • Pre-diabetes.

Do you know that Pre-diabetes is a very strong indicator that someone is at risk of getting diabetes. Current estimates are that one out of every three people with pre-diabetes will progress to type 2 diabetes.

  • A close family member or a relative has type 2 diabetes.

If any parent, or sibling has type 2 diabetes, that person is at a greater risk of developing the condition. There is also a risk if even a relative who is not a member of the immediate family, such as grand parent, aunt, uncle or first cousin has type 2 diabetes.

  • Overweight.

Are you over weight? If you are, there is much greater risk of getting pre-diabetes and develop to type 2 diabetes. You can measure this through your Body Mass Index (BMI). The BMI gives you the recommended weight range, based on your height and weight.

Being over weight means that even IF you are within the BMI recommended range BUT are carrying too much weight around your waist at umbilical level instead of your hips. You can check this using a tape measure: If your waist measures exceeds 94 cm for men and 80 cm for women, you run a much higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It is in excess of 90cm for Asian men.

  • Do you suffer from excessive sweating?.

Excessive sweating is not a symptom of diabetes per se. However when you are diabetic the body can produces several symptoms, which includes excessive sweating.

How to help yourself prevent Type 2 Diabetes.

While accepting the reality, that there are many people who may be at risk of pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes, the important fact is that there are a lot of things that can be done to help.

Clinical experience has established, that with the correct lifestyle changes, the progression of pre – diabetes to type 2 diabetes can be dramatically slowed down or even stopped from developing.

It is currently estimated that almost half of all cases of type 2 diabetes could have been avoided if weight gain in adults was non existent.

Just imagine: IF all the adult population globally, did not gain any weight once they became adults, the world’s number of Type 2 Diabetics would be less than half of what it is.

SO – IF you want to help yourself prevent type 2 diabetes – DO NOT GAIN WEIGHT – It is as simple as that. If you are over weight – LOSE THE EXCESS NOW.

Another equally important, if not more important measure, for helping to reduce the risk of getting type 2 diabetes is the increase in the amount of daily physical activity.

It all boils down to a healthy life style. To enjoy a healthier lifestyle, include the following into your daily life:

Make sure you eat a balanced diet and lose weight if you are overweight. Even losing a small amount of weight will make a huge difference to your risk of getting type 2 diabetes. Alter your eating habits to ensure that you eat a healthy diet at regular intervals. Try and keep to this plan:

  • Decrease, if cannot do away with, the amount of fat and added sugars in your diet.
  • Increase the amount of fruit and vegetables.
  • Increase your intake of fibre.
  • Increase the amount of your physical activity.

Regular exercise helps to reduce weight and lower the levels of glucose in the blood. Half an hour of exercise, such as walking, cycling or swimming at least five times a week should not be too difficult.

  • Reduce your salt intake.

Salt is found naturally in food, however adding more salt, especially too much of it, to your food can mean that you put yourself at risk of high blood pressure.

  • Quit Smoking.

If you smoke, you are increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease, one of the complications of type 2 diabetes.

There are 23.6 million people in the United States, or 8% of the population, who have diabetes.

The total prevalence of diabetes increased 13.5% from 2005-2007.

Only 24% of diabetes is undiagnosed, down from 30% in 2005 and from 50% ten years ago.

Action is the key to saving lives

What is Diabetes?

In the simplest layman terms, diabetes is a condition where the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood is higher than the safe and acceptable levels.

But Diabetes is not as simple as that, so let us understand more about it, again, from a layman’s point of view.

We eat to live, while there may be a few who just live to eat.

The body uses this food for energy, by converting it into the various types of nutrients it needs, through a process called metabolism.

The blood carries these nutrients to the various cells.

The sugar in the foods we eat is converted into glucose and passed into the blood.

The pancreas produces a hormone called insulin that moves the glucose from the blood into the cells.

Diabetes is a condition brought about when:

  1. The pancreas does not produce any insulin at all, or
  2. The pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or
  3. The pancreas produces insulin that cannot be used by body, or the body does not use the insulin produced.

Any of the above three situations causes the sugar content in the blood to build up to levels higher than the normal and safe limits, which is called Hyperglycemia or Diabetes. The excess glucose in the blood spills over or drains into the urine giving rise to term ‘Diabetes Mellitus

People with higher than normal levels of glucose in their blood can be put into three distinct categories.

  • Pre Diabetes
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Type 2 Diabetes

PRE – DIABETES.

It is the alarming number of people in the first category – Pre Diabetes – that the whole modern world is worried about, and that this website is dedicated to.

Pre diabetes are the group people who do have a higher than normal level of glucose in their blood but do not know it.

Pre diabetics are people whose blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be called diabetes.

Pre diabetic are people who are running the high risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, which once developed cannot be cured.

Pre diabetes are the group of people who can be saved, because even though Type 2 diabetes cannot be cured, IT CAN BE PREVENTED, no matter how high up the risk ladder the pre-diabetics are in.

Pre diabetes are the group of people who all have once characteristic in common, THEY NEED TO LOSE WEIGHT

TYPE 1 DIABETES.

Spacer Gif

According to Wikipedia – The Free Encyclopaedia, Diabetes mellitus type 1 (Type 1 diabetes, IDDM, or juvenile diabetes) is a form of diabetes mellitus that results from autoimmune destruction of insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. The subsequent lack of insulin leads to increased blood and urine glucose. The classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst), polyphagia (increased hunger), and weight loss result.

Type 1 diabetes is fatal unless treated with insulin. Injection is the most common method of administering insulin; insulin pumps and inhaled insulin have been available at various times. Pancreas and islet transplants have been used to treat type 1 diabetes; however, islet transplants are currently still at the experimental trial stage.

TYPE 2 DIABETES.

Spacer Gif

According to Wikipedia – The Free Encyclopaedia, Diabetes mellitus type 2 – formerly non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) or adult-onset diabetes – is a metabolic disorder that is characterized by high blood glucose in the context of insulin resistance and relative insulin deficiency.  Diabetes is often initially managed by increasing exercise and dietary modification. As the condition progresses, medications may be needed.

Unlike type 1 diabetes, there is very little tendency toward ketoacidosis though it is not unheard of. One effect that can occur is nonketonic hyperglycemia. Long-term complications from high blood sugar can include increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, amputation, and kidney failure.
