Diabetes, as a disease, is known from as early on as 1500 BCE, with its description found in an Egyptian manuscript.
Various treatments for the disease have been put to practice since the time of antiquity, but its pathogenesis was not comprehended until 1900. Although the first discovered cases of diabetes corresponded to Type 1 diabetes, today, both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are prominent among the respective age brackets.
Type 1, also called as insulin-dependent diabetes is rare and develops in adolescence or after, before the age of 40 while Type 2 commonly develops over the age of 40, it being the most common disease type.
In Type 1 diabetes, lack of insulin in the body is the reason behind raised glucose levels because the insulin producing cells are damaged by the body’s own immune system. Type 2 diabetes occurs due to the resistance the body cells form against insulin being produced. Both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes are symptomatic, although symptoms of Type 1 diabetes are more prominent and severe. The excess urinary discharge leaves you dehydrated, generating periods of dry mouth and recurring thirst.
These two symptoms go hand in hand, relieving the body of excess sugar and managing the spike in blood glucose levels.
Gradual weight gain can be the result of increased intake of food owing to a surge in hunger spasms. Of the many contributing factors to fatigue and crankiness, repetitive urge to urinate accompanied by hunger bursts is what leaves most diabetics irritated. Body’s reduced ability to use sugar for energy leaves the body tired and fatigues more than usual.
If you observe occasional light flashes or a partial vision, it could be a result of high blood sugar. A classic symptom of Diabetes, decelerated healing of cuts and bruises usually occurs due to the continuous damage being done to the blood vessels by the increased blood glucose, which restricts the reach of blood to various body parts, an essential element to healing optimally. If you notice repetitive infections cropping up, it could be a significant sign of diabetes. It is important to bear in mind that these symptoms may be mistaken for an ailment in themselves or for some other disease. Frequent infections, such as gum or skin infections and vaginal or bladder infections Although type 1 diabetes can develop at any age, it typically appears during childhood or adolescence.
Treatment for type 1 diabetes involves insulin injections or the use of an insulin pump, frequent blood sugar checks and carbohydrate counting. Yes, provided the systemic parameters mentioned below are achieved by a healthy diet and physicians’’ consultation. Good blood sugar control today will reduce the risk of damage to kidneys and other organs tomorrow.
Early detection of kidney damage is important, but there might not be noticeable symptoms in the early stages. Keeping blood sugar as close to normal as possible is the first step to preventing kidney disease. Educating individuals on best ways to avoid this and other diabetes complications is a goal of self-management courses. Whether you have already planned a summer vacation or still in the process, incorporate your pump or CGM needs into your travel plans instead of treating your needs as an afterthought or an overwhelming fear. You can obtain a Transportation Security Administration Card to print out and bring with you to notify TSA of your diabetes can be found online. Always have Plan B in place in case something goes wrong with your current device, such as carrying syringes or pens to give injections and carrying extra supplies in case you run low. Be sure to carry some form of prescription or letter from your physician that treats you for your diabetes.
Carry all of your medicines, such as insulin, and all related supplies in your carry-on baggage. If you wear an insulin pump or continuous glucose monitoring device, it is OK to continue to keep them on as you go through security at airports or terminals.
A printed checklist might help elevate stress and keep your plan in your hands, front and center. Learning how to handle life’s challenges like traveling and treatment plans is a covered topic in diabetes self-management courses. Although the calendar says the influenza season should be over, cases of the flu are increasing into March 2016 instead of winding down to a close. A sick day plan should include these elements of good blood sugar control.  Monitoring, meals and medications are key while exercise or physical activity is usually halted during the illness. The sick individual needs to follow a schedule for monitoring that gives the diabetes care team information to direct the modifications for the patient’s needs. Recording temperature, blood sugar, medication amount and time, fluid and food intake and the presence of ketones are highly important on sick days. A log to monitor the sickness over time, glucose meter, lancets, lancing device, test strips, control solution, and a bottle of Ketostix should be included in a sick day management tool kit. The start of each year is a prime time to consider your life, health and ways to improve both.
Timely – I will make an appointment with my care team every three months in 2016 to evaluate my A1C with hopes to start 2017 near 7.5.
Other goals that will impact blood sugar control include getting regular and sufficient exercise, gaining or losing weight, following a diabetes nutrition plan, and being more compliant to medication schedules.
The National Diabetes Education Program, a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), offers an online resource for making a plan for success.
The CGM reads blood sugar levels every one to five minutes and shows whether a person’s blood sugar is rising or falling.
The diabetes educators at Diabetes Management & Supplies can help take the guess-work out of your monitoring needs. Insulin pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring devices work best when insertion sites and parts and accessories are changed as recommended. Insertion site management refers to choosing the best locations on your body to place insertion sets and sensors, but it also involves the frequency in which the site is changed and new supplies are put in place.
John Wright, Diabetes Management & Supplies Director of Sales, wears an insulin pump and stresses that site management can affect the level of blood sugar control. Insulin pump wearers will experience poorer blood sugar control when a site has been used too long before rotation. It is recommended that CGM sensors be changed every six to seven days, but infusion sets should be changed every two to three days. Insulin pump use will require supplies that include insertion sets, reservoirs, tubing, cartridge caps, batteries, dressings and adhesives.
CGM devices will require supplies that include sensors, receivers, transmitters and batteries. To ensure the best results, keep an eye on your supplies on hand and always place reorders enough in advance that you don’t run out of supplies or over use your insertion sites. The holiday season may help bring attention to a rarely-discussed diabetes symptom: depression. The American Diabetes Association explains that people with diabetes are at a greater risk to depression and the complications of poorly controlled blood sugars are very similar to the symptoms of depression.


Spotting depression in yourself or someone you love is an important step to countering depressions effects. Change in sleep patterns: You have trouble falling asleep, you wake often during the night, or you want to sleep more than usual, including during the day. Change in appetite: You eat more or less than you used to, resulting in a quick weight gain or weight loss. This month (November) is Diabetes Awareness Month, a time set aside to education and inspire those living with a form of diabetes and those who can take steps to reduce their risk of the preventable conditions associated with diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes accounts for only 5 – 10 percent of all cases, and used to be called juvenile diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes is the most common form of diabetes, accounting for 90 – 95 percent of all cases. The causes of Type 2 Diabetes are not completely understood, but it almost always starts with insulin resistance. The causes of Gestational Diabetes have not been determined, but the many hormonal changes during pregnancy contribute to what is called insulin resistance – which is your body not using the insulin that your pancreas produces. For more on these forms of diabetes, visit the Diabetes Management & Supplies Learning Center.

It was in 1889 that Joseph von Mering and Oskar Minkowski learnt that pancreas had a pivotal role to play in Diabetes.
Both forms lead to surplus glucose levels in the blood, leaving body cells deficient of the same.
Symptoms for Type 2 diabetes can be easily overlooked, given their gradual onset and commonplace nature. In time, your kidneys fail to keep up with the rigorous overtime process, making you excrete the excess sugar through urinary discharge. Sleep disruption due to repeated bathroom rounds during the night can cause maximum grouchiness. Since excess blood sugar tweaks tissue fluids, inclusive of your eye tissues, it leaves your vision with an impaired focus. Diabetes usually leaves the body vulnerable to a host of infections since fungi and bacteria easily prosper in sugar-rich conditions. The symptoms associated with this condition can escape one’s notice very easily but the disease itself is wrecking enough to leave some of the most vital body functions severely impaired. Potentially reversible diabetes conditions include prediabetes — when your blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be classified as diabetes — and gestational diabetes, which occurs during pregnancy.
Treatment of type 2 diabetes primarily involves monitoring of your blood sugar, along with diabetes medications, insulin or both. It is located strategically at a premium location on Ramghat Road and is easily accessible to all parts of the town. This activity gives you the opportunity to raise the public awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle in preventing diabetes. Having diabetes puts you at a greater risk for developing kidney disease also called diabetic nephropathy. It’s important to have regular urine tests to find kidney damage early because early kidney damage might be reversed.
Control your blood pressure by checking it on a regular basis and following your doctor’s recommendations for acceptable levels. If you need help developing a strategy to avoid complications or face other challenges, Diabetes Management & Supplies can assist with diabetes self-management and education services. There’s nothing new under the sun and you can also reap the benefits of those who have traveled the vacation path before you. If you need help developing life and treatment strategies, Diabetes Management & Supplies can assist with diabetes self-management and education services.
Avoiding illness is a prime goal, but people living with diabetes should be aware of the special needs presented by sick days caused by the flu and other conditions.
Meals and eating will play an important role as medication will need to be adjusted to match rising or falling blood sugar levels. This log or report will give insight to the diabetes care team of current health status and allow them to help adjust medication or intake to prevent dehydration or ketoacidosis.
Certain foods, testing equipment and testing supplies need to be handy before a sickness occurs.  The phone number of the doctor or diabetes care team should be readily available.
The food pantry should contain: broth, both sugar-free and regular Jello, both diet and non-diet soft drinks, both sugar-free and regular popsicles, both thin and creamy soups, regular and sugar free pudding, yogurt, juice and milk.
Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that across the country, this flu season was significantly less severe than in the last few years, though number of cases have been increasing since early January. Motivation and method are both key to setting new goals and ending your year with a sense of accomplishment. SMART Goals provide a road map to success because those goals are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Beyond those faceless figures, one should focus on goals that bolster your diabetes control.
Your diabetes care team should be consulted about ways to reduce your A1C and risk of complications. Lowering one’s blood sugar is a great goal, but drastic drops can increase changes of hyperglycemia.
Diabetes Management & Supplies offers diabetes self-management and diabetes education services.
A CGM automatically takes several blood sugar readings throughout the day, sends alerts for extreme readings and feeds those levels to the insulin pump. Combining CGM with insulin pump therapy can provide a method to monitor and manage blood glucose levels.

Whether emphasized by SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) or just noticed in contrast to the festive season, depression may be one sign of diabetes or a flag that one’s diabetes is not in good control. Treat yourself to your favorite stuffing or homemade pie on these days.  Keep these treats to the holidays. These foods fill you up, but will not affect your blood sugar. Chicken, turkey and cheese are often on party trays.
Just a 15-minute walk before or after a holiday party can help to keep your blood sugar in control when you are celebrating. It is group of similar conditions that fall into the same category because the symptoms and effects on the body may be similar. Three-quarters of people who develop type 1 are under the age of 18, and most others are under 40 years old, but older adults develop it as well.


Most experts believe it is an autoimmune disorder, which is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. In studies that followed relatives of people with Type 1 Diabetes, researchers found that relatives who later developed diabetes had certain auto-antibodies in their blood for years. It used to be called adult-onset diabetes, but, unfortunately, both children and adults develop this kind of diabetes. Gestational diabetes is still diabetes, which means your blood sugar levels are abnormally high. If at any time you're unsatisfied with your experience with us, you can cancel your subscription. They found that dogs, when made incapable of pancreatic function and the organ itself, developed diabetic symptoms, leading to their death. This is the reason why the body gives out these symptoms, to manage and correct the imbalance created.
With sugar levels taking a nosedive, the body is left feeling unfed for hours, triggering a need for glucose for cells to function.
Exercise lowers your blood sugar level by transporting sugar to your cells, where it’s used for energy.
A simple dilated eye examination by a retina specialist can help to determine the amount and severity of the disease.
Advanced cases with non-resolving bleed in the eye or retinal detachment require vitreo-retinal surgery. In type 1 diabetes, hyperglycemia starts in the first decades of life and is usually the only recognized cause of nephropathy. Finally, don’t use tobacco because it narrows your blood vessels including the already tiny ones working deep inside your kidneys. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has a helpline number to assist patients with medical conditions who want to prepare for the screening process prior to flying. It will help to remove this bag from your luggage so that the TSA officials can clearly see what is inside. Please notify the TSA officials as you move through the checkpoints that you are wearing a pump or CGM.
The purpose of a sick day management plan and more vigilant testing has to do with limiting hyperglycemia and dehydration.
Medications are to be taken on the usual schedule or may be modified to meet the patient’s needs by the doctor or a member of the healthcare team.
The most common types of diabetes in our presence society are Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and Gestational Diabetes.
With Type 1 Diabetes, an infection or some other trigger causes the body to destroy the cells in the pancreas that make insulin.
Such factors appear to be more common in whites, who have the highest rate of type 1 diabetes. That excess sugar crosses the placenta and can make your baby grow too large and lead to problems with your pregnancy and delivery. Fotosearch helps you find the perfect stock image, royalty free photo, stock photograph, picture or graphic.
Instead, you’ll need plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains — foods that are high in nutrition and low in fat and calories — and fewer animal products and sweets. Exercise also increases your sensitivity to insulin, which means your body needs less insulin to transport sugar to your cells. High blood pressure in addition to diabetes, can make retinopathy worse, or progress more quickly. With highly advanced technology, good visual results can be achieved in a fair number of advanced cases also. This year, we hope to welcome even more participants, so bring your friends, family and colleagues along for an early morning run or walk through the French Quarter. It is a progressive kidney disease caused by damage to the tiny blood vessels in the kidneys that are used to filter waste from the blood. With type 2 diabetes, to the contrary, hyperglycemia starts near middle-age, usually when the kidneys have already suffered the long?term consequences of aging and of other recognized promoters of chronic renal injury such as arterial hypertension, obesity, high cholesterol, and smoking. Also, in case your checked luggage is lost, you will still have your insulin and supplies with you in your carry-on bag. The goals are to prevent DKA in the Type 1, avoid dehydration of the Type 2 individual and avoid potential hospitalizations for either individual. Understanding what they have in common, how they differ and the associated risk factors is crucial to raising awareness and encouraging prevention, when possible.
We also sell discs containing royalty free stock photos, stock photographs, pictures, and graphics. Nearly half of all people with diabetes will develop some degree of diabetic retinopathy during their life.
This is because the pancreas produces less and less insulin over time, so it must be injected to meet the body’s needs.

Insulin also helps move glucose (blood sugar) into cells, where it can be stored and used for energy.
Even sugary foods are OK once in a while, as long as they’re included in your meal plan. People with untreated diabetes have a 25 times higher risk of going blind than other people.
A registered dietitian can help you create a meal plan that fits your health goals, food preferences and lifestyle. A type 1 diabetes diet is designed to provide maximum nutrition, while limiting sugar, carbohydrates, and sodium.
Without proper diet, exercise, and insulin therapy, a person with type 1 diabetes could suffer adverse health effects.
Health complications associated with this type of diabetes include: vision problems high blood pressure, which increases risk for heart attack, stroke, and poor circulation kidney damage nerve damage skin sores and infections, which can cause pain and may lead to tissue death Following proper dietary guidelines can help mitigate the difficulties of type 1 diabetes, keep your health free from complications, and make your life better overall. A nutritionist or dietitian can help you come up with meal plans, and create a diet that works for you in the long term.
Having a well-stocked kitchen or carrying healthy snacks with you can cut down on unnecessary sugar, carbohydrates, sodium, and fat that can spike blood sugar. To maintain blood sugar levels, dont skip meals, and try to eat around the same time each day.
Fruits Fruits are natural sources of sugar and should be counted as carbohydrates if youre using a diet plan. These include: most green leafy vegetables asparagus beets carrots celery cucumber onions peppers sprouts tomatoes Always choose fresh or frozen vegetables without added salt or sauces. Carbohydrates can come in the form of beans, starchy vegetables, fruit juices, pasta, or bread. Fruits, vegetables, nuts, and other foods travel easily and are great to have on hand when you need them.
