Type 2 Diabetes - What Factors Can Put You At Risk?

Type 2 Diabetes - What Factors Can Put You At Risk?

Type 1 diabetes is commonly referred to as juvenile diabetes and is mostly witnessed among young people. It can also occur in adults. In this condition, the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or completely stops producing insulin. The immune system, which saves the body from foreign microbes, attacks the cells that are responsible for producing insulin. The treatment methods include taking insulin shots, oral insulin intake, taking healthy diet, increased physical activity and controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Type 2 diabetes is a condition wherein the body refuses to use insulin in order to carry glucose to each and every cell of the body. The pancreas try to produce more insulin in order to counter the condition but soon give up due to an increased blood pressure. The treatment plan includes medication, making lifestyle changes, and controlling blood-sugar and cholesterol levels.

Gestational diabetes is observed in many pregnant women. The hormones produced during pregnancy can block insulin to be used by the body. While insulin resistance is common during pregnancy, failure of the pancreas to fill in the additional insulin in the body can result in gestational diabetes. Women who are overweight are more likely to develop this condition. Although gestational diabetes goes automatically after the baby is born, it often recurs in the form of type 2 diabetes in a later stage of life.

Risk factors for diabetes

  1. Weight: Being overweight is a primary risk factor for diabetes. An increased amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of insulin resistance by the body. It is therefore essential to shed as much weight as one can to avoid diabetes.
  2. Inactivity: Immobility increases the risk of diabetes in a person. It stacks up glucose in the body, making it difficult for the body to use glucose and convert it into energy. A daily routine which is devoid of physical activity ensures fat storage in the body, which can turn into type 2 diabetes.
  3. Family history: Diabetes, especially type 2, is closely linked with family history. If a person has diabetes, it is very likely that his immediate family or extended family has a history of diabetes.
  4. Ethnicity: African-Americans, people from the Indian subcontinent, Latinos, etc., are more likely to suffer from diabetes compared to their American or European counterparts. Lifestyle and eating habits are the major reasons for diabetes in these races.
  5. Age: Age has a direct correlation with diabetes. The age group of 45–65 is considered to be more diabetes-prone. Inactivity, immobility, and an increase of sugar intake are some of the primary reasons for developing diabetes in this age group.

Fenugreek or karela juice can not assure you a cure for diabetes, but just a little bit benefit only that too for some people and not for all. As the Diabetes is a metabolic disorder affecting multisystem, kindly get treated with Medicines instead of those Home remedies. You sholdnt endanger your life with those. Homoepathy can cure type 2 Diabtes mellitus completely in a period of six months to one year. Consult a homoepath soon.

Coarse grains are good for diabetics. Have them in your meals preferably millets, bajra and chickpea flour. Can add these in proper proportions to wheat flour too to improve fibre content and reduce glycemic index. But all grains have to be had in prescribed quantity only.

Before the semen analysis, you should abstain from sexual activity minimum for 3 days, but no more than 7 days. Sex the day before analysis may lead to a decrease of volume and number of sperm in ejaculate. More than seven days abstinence before the semen analysis can lead to the death of the mature sperm cells, which are capable to fertilization. You should abstain from the use of alcohol or any other drugs (including “Spice”, marijuana) in any form in order to avoid sperm motility decreasing, changing of their form and even death. It is recommended to abstain from strong black tea, coffee and smoking the day before the test to improve the indicators of the ejaculate. It is recommended to exclude fat, fried food that can reduce the total volume of the ejaculate and sperm motility. To improve sperm parameters it is useful to use plant foods rich in vitamins and fiber (fruits and vegetables), protein (lean meat, beef, chicken, rabbit), dairy products. Also, to improve the process of sperm maturation in the testes it is important to use enough vitamins (especially vitamin C and zinc).

Thyroid Diet

Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), MBBS Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
General Physician, Bangalore

Natural foods, dietary changes and life style modifications which helps in treatment of hypothyroidism:

In my last posting, I explained the role ashwagandha in the management of hypothyroidism.
Here I will explain natural foods which are necessary for better thyroid hormone production, function and overall thyroid health.

We have to choose foods that gives nutritional support for thyroid. 

1) the production of thyroid hormones requires amino acid
Tyrosine, iodine and omega 3 fats

A) tyrosine; the best dietary sources of tyrosine includes;
Spirulina: it’s a sea wead, eggs, fish and lean meat.
B) iodine: best source is iodised salts.
Potatoes; richest vegetables source 
Cheese, yogurt, eggs and sea vegetables.
C) omega -3 fats ; foods such as fish flax seeds, walnuts are good sources.

2) Conversion of t4 to the active t3 requires selenium.

Brazil nuts are the best source of selenium. Other good sources are garlic, mushrooms, broccoli sunflower seeds and sea foods like tuna fish.

3) Binding of t3 to cell receptor and for its function require 

A) vitamins a b) vitamin d, c) zinc
Pumpkin seeds, dark chocolates and garlic are good sources of zinc.

Natural supplements will help in better thyroid function. Try to eat them in natural form.
My suggestion is these foods should be used along with thyroxine replacement pills.

In case of borderline or sub clinical hypothyroidism, only natural foods and supplements can be tried.
Note: in pregnancy, hypothyroidism must be treated immediately with thyroxine replacement pills and should not try only natural remedies.

Foods to avoid in hypothyroidism 

Processed foods, sugar, food additives and gluten.
These foods increases inflammation, insulin resistance and worsen autoimmune conditions like autoimmune thyroiditis which is becoming more common now a days.

Goiterogens: vegetables, such as cabbage, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach etc.
As these vegetables have many benefits.
We can not take them out completely from diet.
Steam, or cook these vegetables to reduce the goitrogenic compounds and eat them in moderation.

Life style changes to improve thyroid health.

1) Exercise – stimulates thyroid secretion. 
Weight training and aerobic exercises also helps in faster weight reduction which is a common symptom of hypothyroidism.
2) Manage stress: studies have shown that stress can ignite autoimmune reactions (autoimmune thyroiditis can be worsened) and worsen inflammation. 
Meditation and yoga helps in managing stress. Yoga also helps in increasing blood flow to thyroid.
3) Acupuncture ; helps in faster response to treatment.
4) No smoking – toxic chemicals in cigarettes such as mercury and cadmium significantly affect thyroid function. So quit smoking.
