Diabetes

Diabetes

Diabetes is one of the more difficult diseases to treat. And more than 1/2 of the diabetic population have difficulty in regulating dosages of Insulin hormone.

By definition diabetes is a nutritional disease since it is involved with the body’s ability or lack of ability to properly metabolise food. It is believed this is the result of the proper function of the beta cells of the pancreas but it could also be due to the Hyper-function of the adrenal or pituitary glands or malfunction of the liver.

Essentially what happens in the complexity of diabetes is that the body finds itself unable to adequately utilise glucose (sugar).

Symptoms

The symptoms of diabetes often are subtle in the initial stages. Here are some questions that you may ask yourself if you suspect that you may have diabetes.

In the past two months have you:

Been unusually thirsty?

Been passing more urine than normal?

Noticed that small wounds heal slowly?

Been unusually tired?

If your answer to one or more of these questions is yes then you should see your doctor or start with taking a simple home test and then seeing your doctor: if you are at all concerned.
