Diabetes a very real danger for women

The World Diabetes Day is marked annually on November 14 and the theme for 2017 is "Women and Diabetes - Our Right to a Healthy Future".

"Investing now will not only allow us to reap substantial financial and social benefits in the future, but more importantly it will help people to live well with diabetes today".

Diabetes UK surveyed 8,500 people about diabetes and how it affected their daily life.

Glucose levels are so high because the body is unable to properly use it.

Three in five said their condition made them feel down. When your blood sugar is close to normal you are likely to have more energy; be less exhausted and thirsty; need to pass urine less often; heal better; and have fewer skin and bladder infections.

How can you tell if you have diabetes?

"The glucose comes from all the food we eat whether it is meat, carbohydrate, protein or fat; so, in their normal forms, the body does not recognise them".

The Report explores detailed information about Market Dynamics of Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry, Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry News, Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry Development Challenges, Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry Development Opportunities, Proposals for New Project, Market Entry Strategies, Countermeasures of Economic Impact, Marketing Channels, Feasibility Studies of New Project Investment, Analysis of Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry Chain, Industry Chain Structure, Upstream Raw Materials, Downstream Industry, Macroeconomic Outlook, Effects to Type 1 Diabetes Drug Industry.

Women with type 2 diabetes are nearly ten times more likely to have heart disease and those with type 1 diabetes have an increased risk of suffering a miscarriage or having a baby with malformations.

Even if the women in a family do not have diabetes, the management of their family members with diabetes is largely dependent on lifestyle with the possible need for timely medications.

In people from southern Asia the disease can appear as early as 25. Too high a blood pressure can cause a heart attack, stroke or damage kidneys and eyes. Good cholesterol - HDL - helps remove the bad cholesterol from blood vessels. You have to do not forget to keep track and stay on top of a whole new routine and that can be overwhelming.

And it's a life-changing diagnosis. Whole grains digest slowly to keep you blood sugar from spiking suddenly. So, try to develop easy coping mechanisms - deep breathing, meditation, gardening, walks, a favorite hobby, listening to favorite music or recorded nature sounds.

"You're young and in your 20s and people on the Tube look at you and ask, 'Why do you need a seat?'" The natural sugars in beetroot don't get converted into glucose in the body too quickly which makes them good for diabetics. Skip the soda and juice and drink water.

Deprivation is also a factor - since poverty levels are strongly associated with higher obesity levels, unhealthy diets and smoking, the poorest fifth of the population is about twice as likely to be diagnosed as the richest fifth.
