Diabetes 1

Diabetes 1

As a Qualified Nutritionist I became very interested in type 2 Diabetes because it runs in our extended family, and I wanted to study what steps can be taken to avoid getting it. We can always do our best through diet and supplementation to minimize the risks. I will be writing eight part series about this subject, however if you would like to get the whole 56 page report/study please enter your email address below and it will be sent straight away by email:-

 

What is Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus (or just “diabetes”) is a metabolic disorder associated with elevated blood glucose. Normally, we take in glucose from the stomach when we eat foods containing carbohydrates. The glucose elevation triggers the islet cells in the pancreas to put out a hormone known as insulin. Insulin binds to cells in the body allowing the cells to take up the glucose to use as fuel for cells.
Without insulin production or with insulin resistance, glucose cannot get into the cells, which do not get enough nutrients and the sugar (glucose) in the bloodstream elevates, damaging organs and blood vessels. This is when diabetes occurs.

Two Types of Diabetes

The first is type 1 diabetes, which is considered an autoimmune disease where the body makes antibodies that destroy the islet cells of the pancreas, leading to very low insulin levels and extremely high blood sugar (glucose) levels. Once the death of the islet cells occurs, the process is irreversible. The patient’s only recourse is to take shots of short, medium, and/or long acting insulin to make up for the insulin the body doesn’t make. Type 1 diabetes is often referred to as insulin dependent.

The second is called type 2 diabetes. In this type of diabetes, the individual makes enough insulin; however, the cells become resistant to it and even with elevated insulin levels, not enough glucose enters the cells. The blood sugar rises and causes the same complications as type 1 diabetes. Fortunately, this type of diabetes can be treated with medication, healthy lifestyle choices, and other natural therapies. Type 2 diabetes, unlike type 1 can be reversed, with weight loss and healthy diet.

Diagnosis Of Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes

Diagnosis of prediabetes or type 2 diabetes is made by a doctor, and is based on a blood test known as the Hemoglobin A1C. According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, lab analysis of blood is required to ensure accurate results.

  • While glucose-measuring devices (finger stick tests pictured on the left) either used at home or at the doctor’s office can be used to track and manage blood glucose on a regular basis, they are not accurate enough for diagnosis.
  • The A1C became the standard test for the diagnosis of type 2 diabetes and prediabetes in 2009 and is reported as a percentage:
    Normal reading is below 5.7%
  • 5.7% to 6.4% indicates prediabetes, and those with a reading above 6.0% are considered at a very high risk of developing type 2 diabetes
    Any reading over 6.5% means a person has diabetes

Risk Factors

Anyone can get type 2 diabetes, but certain high risk factors exist

  • People age 45 and older
  • Those who are obese or overweight with a BMI or 35 or more
  • Those who have had gestational diabetes
  • When type 2 diabetes runs in the family
  • Those who have been diagnosed with pre-diabetes
  • Poor lifestyle choices, like unhealthy diet and lack of exercise
  • Those who have low HDL (good) cholesterol or high triglycerides
  • Those who have high blood pressure
  • African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans
    and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders are at higher risk for contracting this disease
