Diabetes High blood sugar

Diabetes High blood sugar

One of the leading health conditions that is prevailing all over the world is diabetes. It is a condition that develops silently where body’s ability to produce insulin hormone changes. Insulin is the hormone that instructs body to absorb glucose to convert to energy to keep us active or stores it as fat. If a person’s ability to produce insulin goes away, then there will be an increase in blood sugar level leading to nerve damage, liver damage and severe health problems.


Managing blood sugar is very critical for those who suffer from Diabetes Type 1 or Type 2. If not maintained it could lead to loss of vision, glaucoma, heart disease, pancreas malfunction, protein in urine, damage to blood vessels, fatigue, dry mouth, foot problems, diabetic shock or coma.


Diabetes is also called “silent killer” or deadly condition because it causes additional health problems in patients and people often take it for granted without giving much attention. Managing diabetes with diet, medication, exercise is highly recommended to avoid further damage to body.
