WHAT IS DIABETES?

Diabetes is a disorder in which the body's capacity to process blood glucose, often known as blood sugar, is impaired. Diabetes, if not managed properly, can cause a build-up of sugars in the blood, increasing the risk of serious consequences such as stroke and heart disease.

Diabetes can manifest itself in a variety of ways, and how the illness is managed varies according to the kind. Diabetes does not always result from being overweight or living an inactive lifestyle. Some of them are present from childhood.

TYPES OF DIABETES

Diabetes can manifest itself in three forms: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

  • Type I diabetes, often known as juvenile diabetes, arises when the body's ability to make insulin fails. Type I diabetes patients are insulin-dependent, which means they must take artificial insulin regularly to stay alive.

  • Type 2 diabetes is characterized by alterations in the way the body utilizes insulin. While the body still produces insulin, unlike type I, the cells do not respond to it as well as they formerly did. This is the most frequent type of diabetes, and it is strongly linked to obesity.

  • Gestational diabetes: This form develops in pregnant women as the body becomes less responsive to insulin. Gestational diabetes does not affect all women and normally goes away once the baby is born.

WHO IS A DIABETES SPECIALIST?

An endocrinologist is a diabetes specialist. Endocrinologists are experts in the glands that make up the endocrine (hormone) system. Diabetes is caused by the pancreatic gland. The pancreas generates insulin, and insulin issues are at the center of diabetic management. Endocrinologists frequently work with other diabetes specialists—nurse practitioners, dieticians, pharmacists, educators, and exercise physiologists—to handle all aspects of diabetes, which may be a difficult disease to treat.

With the help of Credihealth, you can get in touch with one of the best diabetes specialists in India who can help you manage this disease with next to no difficulty.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR A CONSULTATION?

  • Keeping a journal: A person should keep a journal of any symptoms they have, whether or not they are related to diabetes, for at least a week before the consultation. When creating an individual treatment plan, a doctor will consult the journal. This is critical since each instance of diabetes is unique, and each person will require a unique treatment strategy.

  • Fasting: A fasting blood glucose test may be required for some appointments, particularly first-time visits. Before the appointment, it is essential to get specific instructions. Fasting for a blood test entails refraining from eating or drinking anything other than water for at least 8 hours before the test. Fasting tests should be performed early in the morning. In this manner, the individual will go 8 hours without eating while sleeping.

  • Note-taking: When visiting the doctor for the first time, carry a notepad, smartphone, or laptop. It will aid in keeping note of any essential topics as well as any queries or recommendations that may arise. 

WHEN SHOULD YOU VISIT A SPECIALIST?

Seeing a diabetes specialist is not always essential. Many individuals with type 2 diabetes self-manage their blood sugar levels at home. However, sometimes a problem emerges that needs the assistance of a specialist, or the individual may have issues that a general physician cannot address. A person should consult a specialist when-

  • The traditional therapeutic approaches are no longer effective.

  • New symptoms emerge.

  • Symptoms reappear or worsen

  • They require assistance with complicated daily treatments such as insulin pumps or numerous injections.

  • They get confused due to the instruction materials or medicine.

  • They are having problems determining the proper insulin levels or medications.

  • They learn about new treatment alternatives that may be beneficial.

  • They require assistance in understanding and managing a healthy diet.

  • They want to be a part of experimental research or case studies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the early signs of diabetes?

A: Frequent urination, increased thirst, feeling weary and hungry, eyesight issues, poor wound healing, and yeast infections are some of the early signs and symptoms.

Q: What is the cause of type 2 diabetes?

A: Type 2 diabetes is caused mostly by two interconnected problems: Insulin resistance develops in muscle, fat, and liver cells. These cells do not take up enough sugar because they do not interact normally with insulin. The pancreas is unable to generate enough insulin to keep blood sugar levels under control.

Q: What is the cause of type 1 diabetes?

A: It is uncertain what causes type 1 diabetes. What is known is that your immune system, which is generally responsible for fighting dangerous germs or viruses, assaults and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. As a result, you will have little or no insulin.
