Diabetes And Your Pancreas - Things To Know!

You pass by that cake shop and happen to glance at a sumptuous chocolate cake, and then realization dawns on you that you are not allowed to eat simple sugar. Why? The answer to it is diabetes, for which you only have your pancreas to blame. Situated behind the stomach in your body, the pancreas is an organ whose role is to produce hormones and enzymes that aid in the digestive process. One of the hormones that the pancreas produces is insulin which is required by the body to metabolize sugar that is present in various foods.



So, if your pancreas does not produce the required amount of insulin or fails to utilize insulin effectively, it leads to accumulation of glucose in your blood. The improper functioning of the pancreas leads to diabetes. There are four types of diabetes and they are classified with respect to the manner in which the pancreas mal-functions:

  1. Type 1 Diabetes: In this type, the immune system of the body wrongly attacks the insulin producing beta cells of the pancreas. This impairs the ability of the pancreas to secrete insulin, thus leading to Type 1 diabetes. However, even after extensive research in this field, the exact triggers haven’t been found yet.
  2. Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 Diabetes develops when the body becomes resistant to insulin. It can either mean that the pancreas is producing less than normal insulin or the body is not being able to utilize the produced insulin effectively. Factors such as a poor diet and lack of exercise increase the risks of Type 2 Diabetes.
  3. Pre-diabetes: Pre-diabetes is a condition wherein the blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered as ‘diabetes’. It can again occur due to a reduced secretion of insulin or the inability of the body to utilize the insulin effectively.
  4. Gestational Diabetes: This type of diabetes can develop only during pregnancy. This occurs primarily as the placenta, that connects the fetus with the body’s blood supply, produces hormones that impair the functioning of insulin. This type of diabetes can affect both the mother and the child.

Another common link
Pancreatitis is a condition that is marked by an inflammation of the pancreatic cells. This inflammation can damage the beta cells that produce insulin, thus resulting in diabetes. Factors that contribute to it are a poor diet, lack of exercise, presence of excessive calcium in the blood or excessive alcohol consumption.

How can you avoid the same?
It is best that you incorporate lifestyle changes if you have any of these disorders, and talk to your doctor about a treatment plan. Making a few simple lifestyle changes such as eating healthy, avoiding smoking and exercising on a regular basis can reduce the chances of you suffering from both diabetes and any other pancreatic problems. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My father has diabetes Type 2 since 1.5 years. Recently he got tested for some digestive problems and the doctor said its fatty liver. From the fibroscan reports of liver, the liver is fatty because of sugar. My concern is that if sugar is really the reason for liver damage or the sugar tablets are the reason for liver damage. Please suggest proper treatment and any other factor for the liver problem.

U also should have mentioned your father's age dear. Don't worry for his fatty liver issue. With few liver activating and rejuvenating medicines and just one to two sittings of virechan (a panchkarma procedure could be done at home, for speedy detoxification of body. He will feel huge difference in his body. Whatever toxins remaining in his body will completely be flushed out. After that his rasayan chikitsa would be done for complete rejuvenation of your body. For the concern of diabetes start BGR 34 (aimil) for gud results. U can consult us online for with complete history for ayurveda treatment. Medicines would be prepared according to the body type of patients. And they would be delivered to your address via courier.

Please do not follow any of the short term or fad diets. Especially when you are diabetic, it is always better to have a balanced nutrition and lifestyle changes. Begin with small changes such as avoiding junk and fried foods, processed foods, salted and sugary foods etc. Then add 45 mins of walking or exercise to your routine. Ensure you are eating real foods such as pulses, red rice, ragi, millets, eggs, curd etc and lots of vegetables and fruits. Always eat limited portions but eat a variety of foods through the day. Most importantly, drink at least 3 liters of water per day and ensure you are sleeping 6-7 hours.

If you have type 2 diabetes and your blood sugar levels are racing up and down like a roller coaster, it's time to get off the ride. Big swings in your blood sugar can make you feel lousy. But even if you aren't aware of them, they can still increase your risk for a number of serious health problems. By making simple but specific adjustments to your lifestyle and diet, you can gain better blood-sugar control. Your body uses the sugar, also known as glucose, in the foods you eat for energy. Think of it as a fuel that keeps your body moving throughout the day. Blood sugar highs and lows

My blood sugar fasting is 136 mg/dl, blood sugar pp is 154mg/dl. Suggest me whether to take any medicine or not. BP 80-120.
