What is Diabetes?

Diabetes is the condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy.

Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin, or when the body cannot make good use of the insulin it produces.


There are 3 main types of diabetes – type 1, type 2 and gestational.

Type 1 diabetes can develop at any age, but occurs most frequently in children and adolescents. When you have type 1 diabetes, your body produces very little or no insulin, which means that you need daily insulin injections to maintain blood glucose levels under control.

Type 2 diabetes is more common in adults and which amount to around 90% of all diabetes cases. When you have type 2 diabetes, your body does not make good use of the insulin that it produces. The support of type 2 diabetes treatment is healthy lifestyle, including increased physical activity, use of natural remedy and healthy diet. Learn more

Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that consists of high blood glucose during pregnancy and is associated with complications to both mother and child.it usually disappears after pregnancy but women affected and their children are at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes after.


Complications of diabetes include problems that develop rapidly acute or over time chronic and may affect many organ systems. The complications of diabetes can dramatically impair quality of life and cause long-lasting disability. Overall, complications are far less common and less severe in people with well-controlled blood sugar levels. Some non-modifiable risk factors such as age at diabetes onset, type of diabetes, gender and genetics may influence risk. Other health problems compound the chronic complications of diabetes such as smoking, obesity, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, and lack of regular exercise, failure to use natural remedies etc.


Prevention and guidelines for patients.

Guidelines for preventing or lowering your risk of developing any type of diabetes are also appropriate if you currently have a diabetes diagnosis. Achieving a healthy weight, eating a balanced carbohydrate-controlled diet, getting regular exercise and taking natural remedy supplement all help to improve blood glucose control. If you are taking insulin medication or natural remedy, you may need more or less carbohydrate at a meal or snack to ensure a healthy blood glucose range.
