People living with diabetes have to deal with long-term and short complications. Therefore, it is important for you to get regular checkups to detect any complications. Get your HbA1c levels checked at least twice a year. Get your kidney function tests done at least 2 times a year. Visit an eye specialist once a year to detect any signs of eye damage (diabetic retinopathy). Inspect your feet regularly for any signs of numbness, pain or growth that may lead to ulceration and complications.

Is diabetes transferable?

Type 1 Diabetes is not an inherited diseases but there is a genetic link . This means that a first-degree relative ( example: sister, brother, son, daughter) of someone with type 1 diabetes has about a 6 in 100 chance of developing type 1 diabetes. In Type 1 Diabetes, the body does not produce enough insulin. It is usually diagnosed in children and young adults. There is no known way to prevent it. Giving Insulin injection is the only treatment. But only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease. Type 2 diabetes has a stronger link to family history than type 1. But there are environmental factors as well that determine whether a person will develop type 2 diabetes. Studies conducted on twins show that genetics play a very important role in the development of type 2 diabetes. Also having an unhealthy lifestyle like lack of exercise, obesity and eating processed food can predispose a person to diabetes. Studies show that it is possible to delay or prevent type 2 diabetes by eating right, exercising and losing weight.

Will honey cause diabetes?
97 Views
1 Answer
1 year ago
No, intake of honey or any other sweet food products, does not cause diabetes. On the contrary, honey is used as a sweetener, but in moderate quantity, for diabetics. Honey as compared to regular table sugar, has glucose and fructose. It has a lesser glycemic index than sugar. Honey also has a lesser concentration of sugar than table sugar. Certain other micro-nutrients such as calcium, iron, vitamin C, vitamin B (B2, B3, B6 and B9), magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and potassium are present in minute quantities in honey. These instead have numerous health benefits. Honey also has a good amount of anti-oxidants, which is effective against several diseases. If somebody is diabetic, with poorly controlled diabetes or fairly controlled diabetes, but is over-weight, he should not be taking honey. But if he has well controlled diabetes then honey can be taken as a replacement for table sugar also.

Does beer cause diabetes?
13 Views
1 Answer
1 year ago
Beer is an alcoholic beverage which is consumed avidly since long worldwide. Beer contains alcohol, though in less quantity (about 5%), which amounts to about 150 calories. A 350 ml bottle of beer contains 13 grams carbohydrates. The excess intake of alcohol reduces the sensitivity of body towards insulin. In the presence of alcohol, the hormone insulin does not perform its activity of breaking down glucose, resulting in elevated blood sugar levels. A persistent rise leads to diabetes. Moreover, alcoholism also causes chronic pancreatitis and the patients suffering from chronic pancreatitis show diabetes as a common adverse effect. Therefore, alcohol/ beer directly as well as indirectly leads to development of diabetes in the long run. A moderate quantity of beer to consume by women of all ages and men under the age of 65 is one drink a day; for men 65 and above, two drinks a day should be the limit.
