Diabetes is a chronic health condition in which the levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood are too high. This is due to a deficiency or decreased functioning of the pancreatic hormone, insulin, which regulates blood sugar levels. In early stages - when the pancreas fails to produce insulin, it results in Type 1 Diabetes. When the cells of your body fail to respond adequately to insulin, called insulin resistance or the pancreas produces inadequate insulin for your body’s increased needs, it results in Type 2 Diabetes or Diabetes mellitus.
If insulin cannot do its job, the glucose channels cannot open properly and glucose builds up in the blood instead of getting into cells and turning to energy. High blood glucose levels associated with diabetes is detrimental for the cells of your body and predisposes you to a plethora of complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and damage to the eyes.
A diabetic person may present with no symptoms but may sometimes have increased thirst, pass more urine, feel tired and lethargic, have slow-healing wounds, itching and skin infections, blurred vision, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and mood swings.
Type 1 Diabetes is managed using Insulin injections while Type 2 Diabetes is managed with diet control, oral antidiabetic drugs, and in severe cases with Insulin injections. Antioxidants play a major role in attaining diabetic control!
