Symptoms Of Diabetes

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune condition. It’s caused by the body attacking its own pancreas with antibodies. These are some of the common symptoms of type 1 diabetes:*

  • Urinating often
  • Feeling very thirsty
  • Feeling very hungry—even though you are eating
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Blurry vision
  • Cuts/bruises that are slow to heal
  • Weight loss—even though you are eating more (type 1)

Type 2 diabetes symptoms:*

  • Increased thirst
  • Frequent urination
  • Increased hunger
  • Unintended weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Blurred vision
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Frequent infections
  • Areas of darkened skin, usually in the armpits and neck

Tests to Detect Diabetes

If you have a history of diabetes in your family or if you have high levels of blood sugar in your urine, you may have diabetes. Your blood sugar (blood glucose) levels may be high if your pancreas is producing little or no insulin (type 1 diabetes), of if your body is not responding normally to insulin (type 2 diabetes). To diagnose diabetes, your doctor may use one of these common tests:* 

  • A fasting glucose test is a test of your blood sugar levels taken in the morning before you have eaten. A level of 126 mg/dL or higher may mean that you have diabetes.* 
  • An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) entails drinking a beverage containing glucose and then having your blood glucose levels checked every 30 to 60 minutes for up to 3 hours. If the glucose level is 200 mg/dL or higher at 2 hours, then you have the potential for diabetes.*
  • The A1c test is a simple blood test that shows your average blood sugar levels for the past 2-3 months. An A1c level of 6.5% or higher may mean you have diabetes.*

Your Different Treatment Options

Acupuncture 

The insertion of these small painless needles produces stimuli along the meridian to transmit throughout the metabolic system; and promote the decomposition and liquefaction of fatty tissue, inhibiting fat synthesis to balance fat metabolism.Studies have suggested that acupuncture might help people with diabetes by improving blood sugar levels, relieving the symptoms of neuropathy — a complication of diabetes — and more.* 

Exercise 

Exercise is really good for people with type 2 diabetes. It helps control blood sugar levels, increases energy levels, improves heart health, and promotes emotional well-being. Barring other medical complications, the majority of people with diabetes can and should exercise for diabetes control and for better overall health and well-being.

Herbal Therapy

Certain herbs have a positive effect on helping individuals lose weight or control their weight. When applying herbs to the body, specific steps are taken to ensure the herbs help stimulate a healthy and beneficial recovery for your body. They can help remove toxins from your body or other negative inputs from a virus in a natural manner.*

Dietary Therapy

The plan helps you control your blood sugar (glucose), manage your weight and control heart disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure and high blood fats. When you eat extra calories and fat, your body creates an undesirable rise in blood glucose. If blood glucose isn’t kept in check, it can lead to serious problems, such as a high blood glucose level (hyperglycemia) that, if persistent, may lead to long-term complications, such as nerve, kidney and heart damage.
