When we hear the word “diabetes“, the first thing that usually comes to mind is “beware of sweets” – no sugar on my coffee please, no to chocolates and cakes, no to high blood sugar.  It sounds like being condemned to a life full of restrictions from all food sweet and yummy.

It’s so easy to fall into bad habits; especially eating habits. People nowadays eat on the run, grabbing high-fat, processed and fast foods. And while poor health habits aren’t good for everyone, they’re especially destructive for people who has diabetes.

Poor eating habits and preferences make it harder to manage the condition and increases one’s risk for dangerous complications.  Diabetes is not a  simple and easy condition, so, when you’re newly diagnosed or have been living with diabetes for a while, it could be life threatening if you don’t take care of it asap.

Diabetes mellitus, or simply diabetes, is easily equated with having high blood sugar; either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced.

How our body uses blood glucose, commonly called blood sugar, is significant. Glucose is vital to our health, being an important source of energy for the cells which make up our muscles and tissues.  More over, it’s our brain’s main source of fuel.

Anyone with diabetes, no matter what type,  means one has too much glucose in the blood, although the reasons may be different and it is important to note that having too much glucose can lead to serious health problems if left untreated or not managed well.

People with diabetes commonly produces symptoms like frequent urination (or polvuria), increased thirst (or polydipsia) and increased hunger (polyphagia).

There are generally three main types of diabetes mellitus.  Type 1 DM, Type 2 DM and Gestational diabetes.  Other forms of diabetes mellitus include congenital diabetes, cystic fibrosis-related diabetes and several forms of monogenic diabetes.

So far, all forms of diabetes have been treatable since insulin became available in 1921, and type 2 diabetes may be controlled with medications. However, both types 1 and 2 are chronic conditions which cannot be cured, but with proper management, it could be less life-threatening.  Diabetes without proper treatments can cause many complications such as hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, nonketic hyperosmolar cloma, cardiovascular disease, chronic renal failure, and diabetic retinopathy.

Thus, adequate treatment of diabetes is of utmost importance, as well as blood pressure control and lifestyle factors such as smoking cessation and maintaining a healthy body weight.

Globally, as of 2012, an estimated 346 million people have type 2 diabetes, which means that it really is a serious concern for all of us.
