‘மாஸ்டர் 3 டீ, அதுல ரெண்டு சக்கரை இல்லாம....’இன்று டீக்கடைகளில் அடிக்கடி இப்படி கேட்கலாம். ஒரு காலத்தில் ‘பணக்காரர்களின் வியாதி’ என்று சொல்லப்பட்ட சர்க்கரை நோய், இன்றைக்கு இல்லாத வீடுகளே இல்லை என்ற அளவுக்கு அதிகரித்துவிட்டது. 40 வயதை கடந்தவர்களுக்கு மட்டுமே வந்த சர்க்கரை, இன்று 20 வயதில் உள்ளவர்களையும் எளிதில் பாதிக்கும் அளவுக்கு வந்துவிட்டது. அதற்குக் காரணம், வாழ்க்கை முறை மற்றும் உணவுப் பழக்கத்தில் ஏற்பட்ட மாறுதல்கள்தான். நமது உடலில் இன்சுலின் உற்பத்தி மற்றும் அதன் செயல்பாடுகளில் குறை ஏற்படுவதால், ரத்தத்தில் சர்க்கரையின் அளவு அதிகரிக்கிறது.சார்லஸ் பெஸ்ட் என்பவருடன் இணைந்து, பிரடெரிக் பான்டிங் என்பவர், 1921ம் ஆண்டில் சர்க்கரை நோய்க்கு பயன்படும் இன்சுலின் மருந்தைக் கண்டுபிடித்தார். பான்டிங்கின் பிறந்த தினம் நவம்பர் 14. இந்த நாள்தான், உலக அளவில் இந்த நோய் குறித்த விழிப்பு உணர்வை உண்டாக்குவதற்காக ‘உலக சர்க்கரை நோய் விழிப்பு உணர்வு தினம்‘ என ஐக்கிய நாடுகள் சபையால் 2006 முதல் கடைபிடிக்கப்படுகிறது.

அடிக்கடி தாகம், சிறுநீர் கழித்தல், பசி ஆகிய மூன்றுமே சர்க்கரை நோயின் அறிகுறிகள். சர்க்கரை நோய்க்கு மிக முக்கிய காரணம் உடல் பருமன். இதில் டைப்1, டைப்2 மற்றும் கர்ப்பக் கால சர்க்கரை நோய் என்று மூன்று வகை உள்ளன. இதைத்தவிர, ‘சர்க்கரை நோய்க்கு முந்தைய நிலை’ என்று சொல்லக்கூடிய ‘ப்ரீ டயாபீட்டிஸ்’ வகையும் உள்ளது.உடல், இன்சுலினை முற்றிலும் சுரக்காத நிலையை டைப்1 சர்க்கரை நோய் என்கிறோம். பெரும்பாலும் குழந்தைகளுக்கே இது ஏற்படுகிறது. உலக அளவில் காணப்படும் 90 சதவிகித சர்க்கரை நோயாளிகள், இந்த வகையைச் சேர்ந்தவர்கள்தான். உடலானது இன்சுலினை உற்பத்தி செய்யும். ஆனால், அது குறைந்த அளவாகவோ அல்லது தேவையான ஆற்றல் இல்லாததாகவோ இருக்கும். பெரும்பாலும் உடல் பருமன் உள்ளவர்களுக்கு இந்த நோய் வருவதற்கான வாய்ப்பு அதிகமாக உள்ளது. பெண்கள் சிலருக்கு, கர்ப்பக் காலத்தில் ரத்தத்தில் சர்க்கரையின் அளவு அதிகமாக இருக்கும். அதை ஈடுகட்டும் வகையில், கணையத்தால் இன்சுலின் சுரக்க முடியாமல் போகும். இதையே ‘கர்ப்பக் கால சர்க்கரை நோய்’ என்கிறோம்.

சர்க்கரை நோயாளிகளைவிட, ப்ரீ டயாபடீஸ் நிலையில் இருப்பவர்களின் எண்ணிக்கை அதிகம். இவர்களுக்கு சர்க்கரை நோய் எந்நேரமும் வரலாம். இவர்களுக்கு ரத்தத்தில் சர்க்கரை அளவு என்பது சராசரிக்கும் அதிகமாக இருக்கும். அதேநேரத்தில் சர்க்கரை நோய் என்று குறிப்பிடும் அளவுக்குக் குறைவாக இருக்கும். இவர்கள் எச்சரிக்கையாக இருந்தால், சர்க்கரை அளவை கட்டுக்குள் வைத்துக் கொள்ள முடியும்.இந்த நான்கு நிலையிலும் இருப்பவர்களுக்கு உணவுக்கட்டுப்பாடு மற்றும் உடற்பயிற்சி மிகமிக அவசியம். முதல் மூன்று நிலைகளில் இருப்பவர்களுக்கு மருந்து, மாத்திரைகள் தேவைப்படலாம். கூடுமான வரையிலும் உணவு மற்றும் உடற்பயிற்சி மூலமாக கட்டுப்படுத்துவதே நல்லது. எல்லை மீறும்போது, மருந்துகள், இன்சுலின் இவற்றை விட்டால் வேறு வழியில்லை.

இன்று உலகில் 38.2 கோடி மக்கள் சர்க்கரை நோயால் பாதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளனர். இது 2035ம் ஆண்டில் 59.3 கோடியாக உயரும் வாய்ப்பிருப்பதாக ஆய்வில் தெரியவந்துள்ளது. அதாவது 10ல் ஒருவருக்குச சர்க்கரை நோய் இருக்கும். 1970களில் நகர்ப்புறங்களில் 9 சதவீதம் பேரும், கிராமப்புறங்களில் 2 சதவீதம் பேரும் சர்க்கரை நோயால் பாதிக்கப்பட்டிருந்தனர். இது தற்போது நகர்ப்புறங்களில் 20 சதவீதமாகவும், கிராமப்புறங்களில் 10 சதவீதமாகவும் உயர்ந்துள்ளது. சர்க்கரை நோய் பாதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளவர்களில் 50 சதவீதம் பேருக்கு இதய நோய்கள், கிட்னி பாதிப்புகள் உள்ளிட்ட நோய்கள் இருப்பதும் தெரியவந்துள்ளது.சர்க்கரை நோய்க்கு மருந்து மாத்திரைகளுடன் உணவுக்கட்டுப்பாடு, சீரான உடற்பயிற்சி மேற்கொள்ள வேண்டும். சர்க்கரை நோயை கட்டுக்குள் கொண்டு வருவோம். வாழ்க்கையை இனிப்பாக்கி கொள்வோம்.

One of the common doubt my diabetic people ask me about drinking whole milk or low fat milk

Endocrinologist, Mumbai
One of the common doubt my diabetic people ask me about drinking whole milk or low fat milk
One of the common doubt my diabetic people ask me about drinking whole milk or low fat milk... let me clear the doubt in scientific way..

In fact, there are good reasons to believe that whole milk, full-fat yogurt, cream, and high-fat cheeses may be better for you than their low-fat alternatives.

Reason #1:  Saturated fat is not harmful to your health

Reason #2:  Low-fat and non-fat dairy products are higher in casein

Casein is a very sticky protein in milk that is quite difficult for humans to digest.  Milk proteins are designed to nourish baby cows, who are outfitted with a special enzyme (rennet) that can break apart casein. Humans do not make rennet, which is one of the reasons why dairy products can cause constipation and other digestive problems.

Reason #3:  Low-fat and non-fat dairy products are higher in whey

Whey proteins raise blood insulin levels just as much as pure sugar does.  Even though lactose, the sugar that naturally occurs in milk, has a low “glycemic index” and therefore does not raise blood sugar very much, whey proteins trigger big insulin spikes in body and destabilize blood sugar and hormone levels, lead to carbohydrate cravings, fatigue, mood swings, and obesity.

Reason 4:  High-fat dairy products contain less protein

This means that people who have dairy protein sensitivities may tolerate them better.  People who have trouble with dairy foods are almost always reacting either to milk carbohydrate (lactose intolerance) or milk proteins (dairy allergy and sensitivity), not to dairy fat. This is why many dairy-sensitive individuals are able to eat butter and heavy cream, which are extremely low in protein.

Reason #5:  High-fat dairy products taste better

They improve the flavor, digestibility, and absorption of foods and are more satisfying, therefore you may find yourself naturally eating less.

Bottom line:  The lower the fat content, the higher the protein content

People who consume the most high-fat dairy products, have a 23-percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than people who have one serving or less but there was no association between intake of low-fat dairy products and lowered type 2 diabetes risk.

Keep in mind that, you choose unsweetened varieties, since sugar and other refined carbohydrates raise insulin levels and disturbs blood sugar levels.
And MODERATION is the key for all the food .

Thank you for reading and i Hope it has helped you.

Gh protein and low carbohydrate diet will be useful. Take 6-7 small meals rather than 3 big meals. Avoid sweets, fried foods, fast foods like pizzas, burgers, fried mixtures, cookies, maida biscuits etc. Have a high fibre diet like whole grain/multigrain chappatis/brown/multigrain bread, green leafy vegetables, whole pulses, full fruits (instead of fruit juices. In vegetables avoid potato, yam, colocassia, in fruits avoid mango, banana, cheeku, avocado (butter fruit)

Generic medicine although claims to hve the same efficacy as branded medicines (theretically) yet you can think practically how can you get a thing in rs 3 which others are giving at rs 50. Indians are always going before cost ,try quality product ,its you life. Every thing can not be free. How can you get a I phone at cost of micromax, both are smart phone same feature but there is a huge difference in quality.

What does Type I Diabetes mean? What does Type II Diabetes mean? What is the difference between both?

What does Type I Diabetes mean?
What does Type II Diabetes mean?
What is the difference between both?
Lybrate-user, t1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease, where there are antibodies seen which destroy insulin producing cells, this leads to total deficiency of insulin. Person needs insulin for treatment and for survival. Usually ocurs in much younger age. Earlier called as juvenile diabetes. T2 is due to either lack of insulin or resistance to its action or both. This is seen in people with over weight and who are very inactive. It can be treated by oral anti diabetes drugs alone or even insulin. Some times both are used together. Dietary control and regular exercise also are required for better control. Plus this is seen spreading with in the families. But also is preventable if modified lifestyle is adapted.

Hi Developing high blood pressure during the course of diabetes is expected but this has to be kept under control. Looking at her present condition, it would be best for her to start on insulin because she needs control of diabetes at the earliest without any delay as further delay will worsen her health. This sudden shoot of blood sugar and blood pressure could be because of some infection in the body. Get her admitted so that the cause of her fever can be found and treated which will help in controlling the blood sugar as well.

I am a 40 years male. I my sugar level post meal is 200mgl. What type medicine is perfect for me.
Mr. Lybrate-user, sugar level pp 200 mg, means you have diabetes, so there is a need to start treatment with oral anti diabetic drug. Plus you also have to control dietary intake and exercise daily for 1 hour, brisk walking is a good option. You should avoid sweets, deep fried foods, junk foods, pastries, aerated sweetened drinks (colas), fructose corn syrup containing products, highly processed foods and high fat milk products. Should consume a good deal of green leafy vegetables, salads and permitted fruits (100 g a day). Strive to maintain fasting sugar nearer 100 mg, pp 150 to 160 mg and hba1c% <6.8. This will help in preventing diabetes related long term complications.
