What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a metabolic disease which causes the blood glucose/sugar to rise in a person due to inadequate production of insulin in body or due to no responses of body cells to insulin. It is observed that patients with high level of blood sugar usually experience frequent urination, excess thirst and hunger.
There are three types of diabetes.
1) Type 1 Diabetes: In this type of diabetes, the body fails to produce insulin and the individual is advised to take injectable insulin. Type 1 diabetic patients should ensure a proper blood sugar levels with proper diet and regular blood tests. Type 1 Diabetes treatment should be continued regularly though it doesn’t hinder daily normal activities. Untreated type 1 diabetes can prove fatal but with proper medication and treatment, type 1 diabetes can be controlled with regular intake of supplemental insulin. Type 1 Diabetes is not presently curable but can be controlled with proper medication and diet.
Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes:
Polyuria: Frequent urination.
Polydipsia: Excess thirst.
Polyphagia: Excess hunger.
Xerostomia: Dry mouth.
2) Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 Diabetes disorder is caused by higher level of blood glucose and deficiency of insulin. Type 2 diabetes is first managed by including diet modification and increasing exercise. Type 2 Diabetes is categorized under chronic disease associated to chronic diseases which can shorten life span. Type 2 Diabetes is caused majorly due to irregular life style and genetic factors. When sugar levels are restricted from entering cells, sugar levels are accumulated in the blood causing hyperglycemia which ultimately causes Type 2 Diabetes.
Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes:
The early symptoms of diabetes includes the following:
Immediate contraction of infections and slow healing ability.
Numbness in feet / hands
3) Gestational diabetes: Gestational diabetes occurs during pregnancy stage due to hormones produced during pregnancy phase makes the body resistant from the effects of insulin. The hormones contain human placental lactogen and growth hormones which are important for the fetus and a healthy pregnancy. But these hormones partially block the process of insulin and thus causing sugar accumulation in the blood stream.
Symptoms of Gestational Diabetes:
Impaired glucose intolerance
Excessive thirst & urination
High blood sugar levels
Medication for Diabetes
Generic Avandia, a type 2 diabetes treating medicine is formulated solely to counter the disease by engaging the pancreas for the production of required insulin. Avandia acts as ATP blocker in the body and helps in stimulating larger amounts of insulin. Avandia is an oral consumption medicine that helps in controlling of blood sugar levels. Avandia helps in lowering the blood sugar and increasing the production of insulin by pancreas.
Side-effects of Avandia
Chest & Joint pain
