What is the Connection Between Diabetes and Heart Disease?

What is the Connection Between Diabetes and Heart Disease?

Our body cells are responsible for the essential breakdown of food into energy, as it is vital for our body functioning. Cells break down food into glucose and then convert glucose into energy through insulin, which is an important hormone in the body. Diabetes is associated with the inappropriate functioning of insulin and can be classified into two types: Type I and Type 2 Diabetes. In type I Diabetes, the body does not make enough insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the cell do not use insulin properly.

Both conditions cause blood glucose levels to rise in the body. Diabetes is more than one disease as it poses serious health risks. People with diabetes are at risk of developing a host of problems such as stroke, hypertension, nerve damage, skin, eyes and kidney problems. High amount of blood sugar level can cause damage to the blood vessels leading to blocked arteries restricting blood flow to the heart. Poor blood glucose control can lead to high blood pressure and other blood lipid abnormalities including high levels of HDL (good cholesterol) and triglycerides.

The link between cardiovascular disease and diabetes is well established by medical science. It is estimated that 65% of people with diabetes die of heart disease, which makes it a leading cause of all deaths among diabetic patients. Doctors refer to this connection as DHD- Diabetic Heart Disease. The term Diabetic Heart Disease covers coronary heart disease; narrowing of the arteries, heart failure; minimising heart’s capacity to pump enough blood and diabetic cardiomyopathy; alteration in the structure and function of the heart.

A sedentary lifestyle with little or no physical activity, smoking, stressful life and unhealthy eating habits all contribute to weight gain, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart diseases and diabetes. Thus, weight and lifestyle issues management is the best way to prevent and control such health risks.

Let’s look at some simple but effective ways towards a healthy lifestyle:

  1. Physical exercise: Adopt a 30 minute exercise rule to remain healthy and fit. For diabetic patients, a morning and evening walk is highly recommended. You could walk, run, gym, climb stairs, do yoga, aerobics or other physical activity that interests you.
  2. Eat healthy: Avoid fried and packaged foods as they are full of fats, salt and sugar. Include seasonal vegetables and fruits in your diet and drink plenty of water. Dieticians recommend eating a heart-healthy diet including superfoods like broccoli, spinach, berries and fibre rich meal.
  3. Weight management: Keeping weight under check is an effective way to prevent the risk of heart diseases. Consult a dietician for a customised diet plan as per your medical condition.
  4. Be positive: Stress is a silent killer and a major contributor to all lifestyle diseases. Remain calm and manage your negative thoughts to overcome stress.

Health is the ultimate treasure you have! Preserve it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

My TSH Level is 8.16 please suggest am worried and stressed please help I don't wana be on medicine for a lifetime.
lybrate-user, Hypothyroidism is a thyroid hormone deficiency disorder. Since this hormone is required for development and day to day functioning of brain, plus essential for multiple metabolic reactions in the body. Therefore, it has to be made available every day, through supplement. Hence the treatment has to be for lifetime. There is no option. If one does not take treatment then consequences can be very serious. Thanks.

Role of Homeopathy in Treating Type II Diabetes

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Noida
Role of Homeopathy in Treating Type II Diabetes

Type II Diabetes is also known as Non-Insulin Dependent Diabetes Mellitus (NIDDM) or Adult-onset Diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by increased level of sugar (glucose) in the blood due to deficiency or inactivity of hormone 'Insulin' that is absolutely necessary to monitor glucose metabolism of body. This is a metabolic disorder that is primarily characterized by insulin resistance, relative insulin deficiency and consecutively hyperglycemia. Diabetes is prevalent worldwide and if not attended properly, it may lead to serious complications.

Causes of Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes basically occurs due to defective insulin secretion combined with defective responsiveness of the body to the insulin (also called Insulin resistance). Due to both these factors, hyperglycemia starts occurring in the body. It is strongly associated with obesity and with increasing age. A strong inheritance pattern has been noted in cases of type 2 diabetes. Sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, etc pose as risk factors for developing Diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes can begin at any age though it is not very common in childhood. It usually begins with insulin resistance, a condition in which the body does not use insulin properly. At first, the pancreas keeps up with the added demand by producing more insulin but later it loses the ability to secrete enough insulin in response to meals. This ultimately results in Hyperglycemia (high levels of glucose in circulation).

Homeopathic Treatment for Type II Diabetes:

Diabetes is a constitutional disorder as it is an offshoot of constitutional defects (genetic factors, altered immunity) having an impact on the entire constitution of an individual. Hence it calls for an in-depth constitutional approach for its management.

Homeopathy is based on the principle that disease is a total affliction of body. Moreover homeopathy recognizes importance of the underlying causes such as genetic and inherited factors as the root of any ailment of the body. Homeopathic medicines prescribed on such criteria plays a crucial role in management of many deep-rooted, chronic, difficult diseases; one amongst them being Diabetes.

When we talk about diseases like diabetes, we talk in terms of management rather than cure. Homeopathic treatment along with intake of hypoglycemic drugs and/or insulin can prevent the progress and the complications associated with this condition. Moreover timely administered homeopathic medicines help in maintaining the levels of exogenous insulin and hypoglycemic drugs at minimum possible dosage and in preventing the further progress of the disease. However, it may be noted that there is no substitute to insulin in homeopathy. The role of a healthy diet and exercise cannot be underestimated along with all the above treatment measures.

Dear doctors, I'm asking about a diabetic patient not a normal one. If a diabetic patient takes a lot of stress, sugar level in his blood will reduce? One psychiatrist unnecessarily confused me that if a DIABETIC patient takes a lot of stress, some times sugar level in his blood may reduce. Is it the truth?

Good morning doctor I am 23 year old female and I have thyroid problem last five months what should I do.

MBBS, CCEBDM, Diploma in Diabetology
Endocrinologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Sunitaji, Do you mean to say, you have hypothyroidism? If so then only option is to start treatment with Thyroxine tablets daily. Dose will depend upon body weight and TSH levels. I am sure you are already on it. In addition you have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, mustard, radish, peanuts and coffee. Consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Use whole grain flour for making chapati and roti. Exercise regularly for at least 1 hour a day, brisk walking id ideal. Plus you have to follow instructions on dosing that is to take thyroxine tablets early morning on empty stomach and nothing to be eaten for next 2 hours.

Hello- Here are some tips to control hypothyroidism- 1. Eat Sea Vegetables Twice a Week. Sea vegetables are a good natural source of iodine to support the thyroid.. 2. Don't Be Afraid of Butter.. 3. Cook Your Kale.. 4. Slow Down Your Eating.. 5. Drop the cell phone.. We already know about the connection between cell phones and brain tumors. But this little radiation machine that you hold up to your ear is awfully close to your thyroid gland as well. A good alternative is to get a headset to use while speaking on the phone. 6. Find Your Voice.. Once again, if you look to the anatomy, you find the thyroid gland located in the throat, the center of our communication with the world. Andrea has found in her practice that people with hypothyroid tend to “swallow down” what they really want to say. It’s been very healing for them to learn to speak their truth. On the flip side, she has found that people with hyperthyroid are talking too much, and can benefit by listening more. 7. Do Yoga.. 8. Support Your Adrenals. The thyroid and adrenal glands work together, so if you are exhausted and depleted you may benefit from adrenal support.

Timely and balanced diet is as important as regular medicine intake to control diabetes. You should go for 30 minutes brisk walk in the morning. Do regular exercise atleast 15-20 minutes daily. Include protein rich food in your diet. Include more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Take lukewarm water with half spoon methidana powder in the morning. Take salad before meals. Drink more water in a day. Don't take rice at night and don't skip breakfast. Avoid junk food and oily food. Avoid late night dinner, take small and frequent meals.

Mr. Lybrate-user, you are right, when a person is having diabetes, his chances of getting a heart related problem increase exponentially. This becausediabetes affects coronary arteries and a lot of silent heart attacks are reported in diabetes patients.

If a person has developed diabetes, it is better to observe certain precautions in terms of food intake. All those items containing high sugar like sweets, direct sugar are to be avoided. As regards the fruits mangoes, bananas, chikkoos, grapes, custard apples (sitaphal) and jack fruit (phanas) are to be avoided. Mangoes are very sweet, contain a lot of sugar, one can have a slice or two if sugar control is excellent. Any item rich in sugar content (sucrose) is converted to glucose in one step in the gut and hence raises the blood sugar rapidly. Other fruits have comparatively lesser sugar, hence can be eaten in moderate quantity.

Shrinking of hands is because of loss of subcutaneous fat'muscle atrophy of hands and dermopathy' all due to advanced diabetes leading to neutopathy: needs good blood sugar control and if on oral drugs then insulin will be better anyway get assess by an good diabetolosist to look for diabetic complicstions.

Hello lybrate user I will begin this answer by stating that there is no such thing as an uncontrollable sugar. Sometimes it is believed that sugars can be uncontrollable because there is a maximal dose of insulin. But I would like to dispel this doubt and tell you there is no such thing as a maximal dose of insulin and the amount of insulin being given to a patient can be escalated to an optimal level so that the blood sugar target is achieved. Also, the following approach of treat to target in the case of diabetes is very important because if the patient is taking the medicine suboptimally then sugars might be slightly controlled but till the point of time that they're completely controlled a patient cannot draw the benefits out of the treatment. What I basically implying is that in the case of diabetes treatment with uncontrolled sugars is almost as bad as no treatment. Hence from your case as I understand that the patient is already on insulin and the only logical thing to do is to escalate the level of insurance so that the sugars are optimally controlled.
