Hello and Welcome to Health Mantra. Today
we are talking about high Sugar levels or Diabetes. If you, a family member or a friend
has been experiencing increased thirst, frequent urination, excessive hunger, unexplained weight
loss, fatigue, then its time to get those sugar levels checked because these are symptoms
of Diabetes. This is a growing problem due our changing lifestyle, incorrect eating habits,
lack of exercise or even genetics. So what causes Diabetes ? What all types of diabetes have in common
is that they cause people to have too much glucose (sugar) in their blood. But we all
need some glucose. It’s what gives us our energy. We get glucose when our bodies break
down the carbohydrates that we eat or drink. And that glucose is released into our blood. We also need a hormone called insulin. It’s
made by our pancreas, and it’s insulin that allows the glucose in our blood to enter our
cells and fuel our bodies. If you don’t have diabetes, your pancreas
senses when glucose has entered your bloodstream and releases the right amount of insulin,
so the glucose can get into your cells. But if you have diabetes, this system doesn’t
work. Type 1 and Type 2 When you’ve got Type 1 diabetes, you can’t
make any insulin at all. If you’ve got Type 2 diabetes, it’s a bit different. The insulin
you make either can’t work effectively, or you can’t produce enough of it. In both types of diabetes, because glucose
can’t get into your cells, it begins to build up in your blood. And too much glucose
in your blood causes a lot of different problems. To begin with it leads to diabetes symptoms. Complications Over a long period of time, high glucose levels
in your blood can seriously damage your heart, your eyes, your feet and your kidneys. These
are known as the complications of diabetes. But with the right treatment and care,
people can live a healthy life. And there’s much less risk that someone will experience
these complications. Now if someone has diabetes, what is the treatment? Type-1 Diabetes can be managed by directly
injecting insulin in the bloodstream since the pancreas are not producing any insulin
at all and this a life long Type-2 Diabetes can also be managed by taking
medicine or by making lifestyle changes like regular exercise, eating nutritious food,
practicingyoga and most importantly by keeping a check on your weight. But yes if the levels
are too high then insulin injections may be recommended by your doctor. Hope this video
has explained why its important to check your sugar levels and see if you have Diabetes
and…. if you do… how it can be effectively managed. So eat well and exercise…But remember
to consult your doctor for any medical condition or before you take any medicines. Subscribe to our Youtube channel Health Mantra……
