What is Diabetes?

A chronic condition affecting a large number of people, where there is a problem in the glucose (or sugar) processing in the body, resulting in a high sugar blood level. The disease affects more than 400 million1 people worldwide and can result to up to 5 million deaths per year2.

What are the types of Diabetes?

3 types of diabetes exist:

1. Type I: which results from a problem in the cells that secrete Insulin (which is the hormone regulating blood sugar) that are present in the pancreas, and therefore the level of Insulin is decreased resulting in high blood sugar level3.

2. Type II: Which results from a problem in the receptors of Insulin in the cells, meaning that the level of Insulin is normal, but the cells don’t use Insulin properly and that also results in elevated blood sugar level4.

3. Gestational Diabetes: This occurs during pregnancy, but is usually temporary and resolves by itself after the baby is born.

What causes type 2 diabetes

As stated, type 2 diabetes is a result of a problem on the cellular level, where Insulin production is within normal range, while the cells themselves cannot properly use the Insulin, and the ultimate result is high blood glucose levels5.

Two main causes are attributed to Type 2 Diabetes; these are genetics and lifestyle factors.
Genetics is a great factor contributing to developing type 2 Diabetes, even more than type I where for identical twins, the risk rate is up to 90 % and for non-identical siblings is 25-50 %6, and is associated with other diseases of genetic origin such as Donohue syndrome, and Rabson-Mendenhall syndrome7.

The other well-known cause of Type II Diabetes is lifestyle factors, mainly obesity, low physical activity, and stress8. Poor dietary habits are also contributing factors, such as high sugar intake9, and saturated fats consumption10. Age has also been suggested as a causative factor, but only in combination with other factors7.

What are the signs and symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes?

These are similar to type I Diabetes, namely excessive urination, increased hunger and weight loss11. Other symptoms include recurrent infections, blurred vision, itching and fatigue. Some people also report decreased consciousness and low blood pressure6.

Complications include increased risk of cardiovascular disease, sexual dysfunction, kidney failure7 and dementia12.

Treatment according to the western medicine tradition

Oral agents are mainly used for control type 2 diabetes in the western medicine tradition. Antidiabetic oral medications include Thiazides and Metformin. Rarely, the condition is so severe that Insulin will also be needed. In excessively obese individuals, surgeries are often needed to reduce weight, and therefore eliminate the cause of the condition.

Treatment according to the natural medicine tradition

Living under continuous medication therapy could be annoying, not to mention the adverse effects of these medications, which are kidney failure and heart disease. Lifestyle modification could be a great way to manage the condition, and we can help you develop the most suitable plan according to your triggers and causes, and make your life significantly easier.
