 1 year ago       174 Views

India is often termed as the world's ' Diabetes Capital', and not without reason.

When the pancreas (the critical controller of blood sugar levels) fails to generate insulin or is unable to use the little quantity produced, it leads to high glucose levels or sugar in blood, which is commonly called as diabetes.

However, it's Type 1 and Type 2 that affect a majority of the population.

Type 1 - This type develops in childhood.

Type 2 - More people develop this type of diabetes due to incorrect lifestyle choices.

The polygenic disease triggers when the body is unable to use the hormone insulin and keep the blood sugar in check.

Too much of exposure to technology leading to reduced sleep cycle, along with binge-eating on junk and fast food items, skipping exercise exercise and other factors expedite diabetes.

However, symptoms in type 2 diabetes go unnoticed as it takes years for it to develop.

Various lifestyle choices can help diabetic patients lead a healthy life.

A disciplined lifestyle of waking up early, healthy eating habits, taking shots on time and indulging in physical activities will bring out a positive change in their life.
