From Pre-Diabetic to Severe Diabetic to Ketoacidosis and Then Back




Type 2 Diabetes – Does Stress Play a Part in the Development of Diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is epidemic throughout the world, following on the obesity epidemic. Stress produces specific hormones, which can raise blood sugar levels. Could this be at least part of the reason for the Type 2 diabetes epidemic?

Type 2 Diabetes – What Is Your Reason For Not Taking Care of Your Health?

You likely have many responsibilities, and it is normal to want to do away with some of them – and sometimes this is possible. When it isn’t, unfortunately, we are forced to accept we will have to contend with our duties when necessary to avoid what could be dire consequences. But it is not all bad: they are called responsibilities for a reason, and when they are looked after, help to provide us with a better life.

Type 2 Diabetes – Do High Levels of Magnesium in The Diet Help to Prevent Coronary Heart Disease?

According to the journal Nutrients taking in a sufficient amount of magnesium in the diet could be one way of reducing the risk of developing coronary heart disease. The coronary arteries lead from the aorta, the most significant artery in the body, to the heart muscle, carrying blood with oxygen and nutrients. In March of 2018, it was reported the scientists at ZGT Hospital and several other research facilities in the Netherlands and UK, found people who had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and who took in high enough levels of magnesium had a lower risk of having blocked coronary arteries than those who did not take in high enough levels of magnesium.

Type 2 Diabetes – Treat Yourself As You Would Your Loved Ones

Imagine someone close to you has been afflicted with a severe disease. You would feel awful; perhaps you would feel worse than if the disease had affected your health. You may feel their pain; you may pray for their well-being. More importantly, you may be ready to do absolutely anything you can to help ease their pain. But let us say the disease can be handled, not cured but controlled.

Type 2 Diabetes – Being Overweight As a Child Raises The Risk of Diabetes at Puberty

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, April 2018, overweight children can prevent developing Type 2 diabetes by reducing their weight to a normal healthy weight before they reach puberty. Scientists at the University of Copenhagen and several other research facilities in Copenhagen compared 62,565 Danish men whose height and weight were measured at ages 7, 13, and between 17 and 26 years of age. Links were found between being overweight at the time of each measurement, and measurements at later times were more strongly linked.

Type 2 Diabetes – Reversing Diabetes Is A Process of Mastery

There is a common misconception surrounding Type 2 diabetes suggesting it cannot be treated or reversed. To be fair, it is usually those who do not know much about the disease who have this belief. With informed knowledge of Type 2 diabetes comes the understanding it can be treated, and it can be put into remission. Type 2 diabetes is a disease that develops over the course of many years. Even if you have not led the healthiest lifestyle of late and you find yourself diagnosed, it is unlikely to be a result of your recent years.

Type 2 Diabetes and Healthy Living – Are You Inflicting Psychological Pain On Yourself?

A lot of the pain the average person experiences in life is not due to external factors. Much of the time, the pain felt is due to our thinking and how we react to a situation: but this is not to say how we respond is the cause of our worst pain. Few things can compare to those painful circumstances in life which are almost always outside of our control: the diagnosis of a disease like cancer or the death of a loved one, for instance. Unfortunately, these are outside our control and will occur anyway. Then we have little choice but to deal with them the best way we can.

Type 2 Diabetes – Study Links Hemoglobin Levels With Diabetic Retinopathy

In April of 2018, the journal Science Reports published an article on hemoglobin and the likelihood of people with Type 2 diabetes developing diabetic retinopathy. There are about 500,000 molecules of hemoglobin per red blood cell. Each hemoglobin molecule, due to its iron content, carries two oxygen molecules from the lungs through to the rest of the body. Oxygen is what makes red blood cells red. When the hemoglobin in red blood cells gives up its oxygen molecules to the rest of the body, the red blood cells become blue. This is why blood in the veins is blue, and blood in the arteries is red.

Type 2 Diabetes – Long-Term Commitment Guarantees Positive Results

Many people live successfully with Type 2 diabetes: they chose to take control over their life. Positive effort then guarantees the results they are looking for: lower blood sugar levels and weight loss. There is no way to guarantee results without effort. This understanding is essential because it means you recognize there are no shortcuts to achieving meaningful goals. If there is a meaningful health goal you would like to achieve, the best way to ensure you will make progress is through long-term commitment.

Type 2 Diabetes – Blood Fats Raise The Risk of Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease is a severe complication of Type 2 diabetes. Plasma triglycerides, or blood fats, tend to be high in many people who have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Could there be a connection? Scientists at Khon Kaen University in Thailand and several other research facilities in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, have found a link between the two. Their work was reported on in February of 2018 in the journal Diabetes Research and Clinical Practice.
