When we have a toothache and flux inflates cheek, weWe know that it is necessary as soon as possible to escape to the dentist. When a stuffy nose, fever and cough, we go to the therapist and ask for sick leave. But what to do when all that we are concerned, can be described in one word - "tired"? Or maybe the case in the banal laziness?
Not at all. And go it is necessary first of all to the therapist to make the most of the usual analysis, not a time-consuming and does not require anything special - a blood test "for sugar." It will show whether glucose levels are elevated, because it can talk about the risk of developing diabetes.
Diabetes - a disease of the endocrinesystem, which occurs due to lack of the hormone insulin. It is responsible for the fact that there is a fixed number of sugar in the blood - and no more. After all, if the accumulated a lot of glucose in the blood, it has a detrimental effect on the entire body - there are problems with blood vessels eyes, internal organs, legs ... He suffers metabolism, immunity and even libido. But detection of this state to pass, in fact, only one analysis. And then once is enough to assign treatment to this disease is no longer bother you ...
If your fasting blood glucose is too much,means the pancreas produces little insulin or the body's sensitivity to this hormone is reduced. High glucose levels - one of the first signs that help the doctor to suspect something was wrong, and help the person before that happens something serious.
To understand this surely must beundergo a thorough examination. His will is not a therapist and endocrinologist or diabetologist. He carefully listens to complaints and gather all the information about the disease and its manifestations. After that, he will appoint additional laboratory tests to help determine how severely impaired pancreatic function - or rather, those of its cells, which produce insulin. This will help you choose the right treatment as quickly as possible and stabilize blood glucose levels.
If a person went to a doctor immediately, thethe excess sugar in the blood begins to complications for a particular organ. Different people have these bodies may be different - someone first having kidney problems (and pathological changes in them starting at the very beginning of diabetes), the other - with the eyes, the third one having trouble with the vessels of the legs. In order to see these changes and begin to start medication that helps the body to cope with the problem, and the need for careful examination.
Simultaneously, an endocrinologist and influencesthe root cause of the disease - insulin deficiency and as a result, a high level of glucose. The lack of the hormone can be very different severity: depends on how hard the disease occurs and how powerful drugs are needed to handle it. In some cases, the patient will need to regularly inject themselves insulin, in others - to take special hypoglycemic agents, but the most mild cases (especially the so-called pre-diabetes) - is sufficient to consider a low-calorie diet. Depending on how much sugar is increased, the doctor will select the correct drug or combination of drugs that can help maintain the level of glucose at a normal level. Since the maximum amount of glucose released into the blood when food intake, these drugs need to be taken shortly before the meal.
In fact, not so scary: in the world there are millions of people with diabetes, including, for example, Sharon Stone, Sylvester Stallone, Mikhail Gorbachev. Diabetes does not prevent people from living a full life: work, play sports, to have children, as they learn to control their disease, and in time make up for the lack of insulin. After all, the earlier we start to "discipline" of glucose in healthy for the body framework, the less damage will bring disease.
In diabetes there is one feature: if they do not do it - not be treated at all or take medication regularly - it can be a very serious illness. But if you see to it that the blood glucose level has always remained in the normal range, you can almost forget about this disease.
In other words, diabetes causes a person to bedisciplined - ensure that blood glucose remained "in check." In a sense, it teaches a person more sensitive to yourself: eat the food that it is really necessary, but at the same time and enjoy the pleasure of receiving it; take care of yourself and live the lifestyle that fits your body needs.
This discipline helps to preserve the life andhealth. In the end, all that is valuable that we have, is to make an effort to save it. All you need to begin with - to make a simple analysis of "glucose" ...
