Some of these numbers are almost 7 years old and those numbers are growing every year.

Diabetes types what are they and what do they mean ?

Diabetes is caused by the body’s inability to create or effectively use its own insulin, which is produced by islet cells found in the pancreas. Insulin helps regulate blood sugar (glucose) levels – providing energy to body cells and tissues.
Without insulin, the body’s cells would be starved, causing dehydration and destruction of body tissue.
People with type 1 diabetes must have insulin delivered by injection or a pump to survive.
Many people with type 2 diabetes can control their blood glucose by following a healthy meal plan and a program of regular physical activity, losing excess weight, and taking medications. Medications for each individual with diabetes will often change during the course of the disease. Insulin also is commonly used to control blood glucose in people with type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes, medically referred to as Diabetes Mellitus, is a condition in which the body produces insufficient insulin. This leads to increased blood sugar levels which unattended leads to other complications that can even be life-threatening.
Types of Diabetes
Diabetes is categorized as Type 1, Type 2, Gestational and other. Of these Type 2 Diabetes is common and is found in adults. Type 2 diabetes can be treated without insulin in most cases whereas Type 1 needs insulin to treat it. Natural diabetes control comes to play in the case of type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.

Prediabetes is a condition when the blood sugar levels are increased above the normal range but not to be considered as diabetic. The blood sugar level fluctuates. This is an early stage during which you can control your blood sugar level naturally. People who are diagnosed with prediabetes can resort to natural diabetes control successfully.
Type 1 Diabetes has other names like “insulin dependent diabetes mellitus”, and “juvenile diabetes”. Type 2 is commonly referred to as “adult-onset diabetes”.

Know your blood sugar numbers

It is better to check your blood sugar level and know what type of diabetes you have. There are handy devices and kits that can be used to check your sugar level at home itself, instead of going to labs. If you are in the early stage i.e., prediabetes or having type 2 diabetes then you can go for natural diabetes control. If your blood sugar levels are in the range of 80 to 90 mg/dL then there is nothing to worry about. If it is above 90 mg/dL then you are in the prediabetes range and it is time you look at your lifestyle seriously.

Natural Diabetes Control

Natural Diabetes Control through Diet You can easily control diabetes naturally without taking any medications. All you have to do is to allot some time for exercises and be aware of what you take as food. Controlling diabetes naturally is possible through regular exercises, appropriate foods, food supplements, herbs, and even yoga.

If you know your blood sugar level and make some simple lifestyle changes, it is possible to keep your blood sugar level under control. People who follow the necessary lifestyle changes are less likely to have complications due to diabetes. Certain other conditions like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obesity and smoking habit may make your diabetes worse. It is better to treat these conditions too to have your blood sugar level under control.
