Video: ❶ Diabetes: Signs And Treatment
Diabetes is the human body's worst enemy. This term covers a whole complex of diseases of varying severity, the appearance of which is provoked by a violation of the process of insulin production. It is this that becomes the cause of serious hormonal disruptions, the culprit of improper protein and water-salt metabolism, and also leads to obesity. Location: Location: Since diabetes triggers the development of a system of related diseases, the symptomatic signs in the early stages are too vague, i.e. can accompany other diseases. However, the following types of ailments are considered primary manifestations:
Frequent urination. Excessive levels of glucose in the blood and urine provoke hourly trips to the toilet "in a small way". Notice that the urge to urinate bothers you much more often than usual? It is worth considering the reasons for such a delicate problem.
Dramatic weight loss or, conversely, obesity in a short time. In just a couple of months, you lost 8-10 kilograms, lost your appetite, or, conversely, recovered greatly for no apparent reason? Did you know there are two different types of diabetes? With one of them, fluid and fats are retained in the body longer than usual, with the second, on the contrary, the metabolism is accelerated at times, so a person is losing weight before our eyes.
A symptom of type 2 diabetes is uncontrolled appetite. Whatever such a sufferer eats - a bowl of soup or four servings of French fries - he will not feel full food saturation.
Dermatological problems that are unexpectedly difficult (compared to the norm) to treat. Eczema, ulcers, erysipelas occur regularly, moreover, getting rid of them is delayed for a long time. Such skin diseases are becoming frequent companions of diabetes.
If one of the above symptoms began to bother you, visit your GP and ask him to write a referral to the laboratory for urine and blood tests. In diabetes, the presence of acetone and sugar in the urine is detected, and in the blood, glucose levels are overestimated.
In type 1 diabetes, the mainstay of treatment is regular insulin injections, diet therapy, and medication to lower blood sugar levels. Complex treatment of the second type of this disease involves taking homeopathic medicines and decoctions of medicinal herbs. In any case, the disease requires careful and regular monitoring of the patient's blood and urine sugar levels to maintain a stable condition and prevent exacerbation.
