Health Concern (Diabetes)
Diabetes is a commonly occurring disease and has fatal outcomes if not taken care of immediately. In this disease, a hormone named insulin is reduced in production which takes care of the metabolism of sugar or carbohydrate. As a result, the carbohydrate or sugar level in the blood rises up and creates severe health problems. There are two types of diabetes. Type-1 diabetes is more serious and very few patients with this disease survive. Type-2 diabetes is more common and patients can survive if they take adequate care of their health.
The cause of diabetes is yet unknown. Sometimes it is believed that a genetic disorder or a linear genetic relationship might play a role.
Frequent urination is the first symptom along with severe thirst. The patient loses weight suddenly after being affected by the disease. Sometimes, the patient’s vision is blurred. The patient feels terribly weak and tired. Along with these, diabetic patients go through a severe problem which is losing the activities of platelets. As per the American heart association, about 80% of diabetes patients die from a failure of blood clotting.
Prevention of the disease is possible by having healthy food and enough physical exercise. The patients also have to try losing weight which might eventually release the deleterious effects of diabetes.
When affected properly, patients need a constant supply of insulin from outside. Nowadays patients also use a glucose monitor for constant observation of sugar levels. Type-1 diabetes patients need to transfer to+ emergency medical care immediately. Sometimes a pancreas transplant helps the patients to get proper relief.
