When the days pass, community health talks and enlightenment are held in an attempt to raise consciousness and see how it can be regulated. This will help you understand how careful and preventive you can be when it comes to diabetes. This article is a slap in the face; read on to learn more.
What exactly is diabetes?
Diabetes is described as an abnormally elevated blood sugar/glucose level of more than 120 milligrams per deciliter, according to medical standards. Diabetes can evolve in either of two ways: either the pancreas fails to produce the hormone insulin, which controls blood sugar levels, or the body cells fail to respond to the insulin released. In any case, blood sugar levels rise abnormally high, resulting in diabetes.
Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are shown in the diagram below.
The onset of diabetes is accompanied by a slew of noticeable symptoms. However, in some situations, the symptoms can not be seen until the situation becomes urgent. As a result, it is recommended that all adults monitor their blood sugar levels on a regular basis to ensure that they are on the safe side. Excessive urination, excessive thirst, dizziness, vomiting, unusual shoulder pains, and other noticeable symptoms of diabetes include: excessive urination, excessive thirst, dizziness, vomiting, and unusual shoulder pains. Bear in mind that symptoms differ from person to person.
The pancreas is depicted below, along with how it affects diabetes.
Diabetes is primarily caused by the type of food consumed, as well as one's diet and level of physical activity. It may also be attributed to a family history of diabetes or a hereditary predisposition to the disease. Food has been identified as the primary cause of diabetes in the modern world, according to recent studies. The consumption of junk foods is growing, as is the consumption of sugary foods and artificials. Furthermore, the rate at which people engage in physical activity is declining, which aids in the maintenance of abnormal sugar levels in the body, which can lead to diabetes.
What are the four substances that, when consumed in excess, cause diabetes?
1. Excessive use of artificial sugars in tea or in the preparation of pap
Natural sugars, such as honey, are absorbed more easily in the body than artificial sugars. Artificial sugar provides no nutritional benefit to the body, and the body is unable to control it. In this situation, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin to keep blood sugar levels in check. Please, for the sake of your health, reduce the amount of artificial sugars you eat in your morning tea, pap, garri, and other foods. If you must add sugar to them, honey is a better option and a great source of natural sugar that your body will not reject.
Instead of artificial sugars, use honey.
2. Excessive Intake of alcoholic beverages
In our culture, the consumption of alcoholic drinks is on the rise. Some men now enjoy downing 5 to 10 bottles of alcoholic beer before feeling satisfied, while others do so on a regular basis, Monday through Sunday. All of this has contributed to the alarming rise in diabetes among our population. Alcoholic drinks contain not only alcohol, but also a large amount of added sugar that has been refined. In reality, they have more sugar in them than soft drinks and energy drinks. If you care for your health and well-being, it would be ideal if you avoided or reduced your alcohol consumption.
3. Excessive consumption of soft drinks and energy drinks containing artificial sugar
Soft drinks and energy drinks are well-known for having large amounts of artificial sugars, which help to increase the body's blood sugar level. Three sugar cubes are found in a typical soft drink bottle. However, its consumption in Nigeria is extremely high, leading to a large number of people developing diabetes. Keep this in mind. You'll have removed one of the causes of diabetes in your life if you can stop or reduce the consumption of soft drinks (also known as "mineral" drinks).
4. Excessive Intake of carbohydrates
When there is no physical activity, an excessive consumption of carbohydrates becomes a concern. Carbohydrates contain a significant amount of natural sugar, which provides energy to the body. Since the sugar is normal, the body absorbs it easily and without stress. However, if the body's carbohydrate consumption becomes excessive, the body will undergo a "energy rush," contributing to weight gain and the development of diabetes. All of this is more likely to occur if the person does not engage in regular exercise to burn sugar and fat. When obesity sets in, the risk of developing diabetes increases significantly.
In conclusion, Apart from avoiding the 4 Substances mentioned above, exercise and a balanced lifestyle are also essential in preventing diabetes melitus and insipidus. Make it a priority to get some light exercise at least once a week. That goes a long way toward burning the body's excess sugar and fat content, ensuring that the body is healthy and wellness is assured.
