Type 2 Diabetes - How To Administer It Well?

Diabetes is a disease that affects the way your body deals with glucose in the blood and the glucose absorbed from the food you ingest. Diabetes is generally of two basic types - Type 1 and Type 2. Apart from these two types, there are other kinds as well including gestational diabetes that some women suffer from during their pregnancy. Type 2 Diabetes is a condition where the cells of the body do not make proper use of the insulin being produced by the pancreas. Living with this kind of a condition may seem debilitating at first, but here are a few things you can do to make life easier despite Type 2 Diabetes.

-Weight: Being overweight is one the foremost side effects and sometimes, even cause of Type 2 Diabetes. To make your life easier, you can lose weight so that the complications involved are that much less. Diet and exercise are key for appropriate weight loss. Watch your diet so that you can eliminate high cholesterol as well. This can ensure that unnecessary amount of fat does not stick to your muscles and organs, which in turn will fuel better functioning of the same.

-Health Care: Being fit with Type 2 Diabetes does not merely mean staying within your normal weight range. It also means taking care of your medication and insulin doses so that you can function in a more normal way. Make your family and friends your support system as you go about life so that people can help you and recognise symptoms when something goes wrong. Be in constant touch with your health care providers and the general physician you see so that they are in the loop and you know exactly what to do in case there is an emergency.

-Exercise: Being active is a great way to keep your blood sugar level low even as you ensure that you heart is in good condition. This will further eliminate the risk of heart disease, hypertension and high cholesterol. Sweating it out also helps the insulin work in a better manner within your body.

-Balance: While you may be asked to remove sugar from your diet, there is no need to stay away from proper meals. You can have a fibre rich diet that also has plenty of fruits and vegetables so that you get your due nutrition and maintain a fit body.

Watching your lifestyle is the main thing you need to do if you are suffering from Type 2 Diabetes.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query You have mentioned the drugs and dosage being taken, but there us no mention of blood glucose levels and HbA1c%, so I am unable to know whether glucose is well controlled or not. Another aspect you are taking 30 mg of Pioglitazone, which is the maximum dose recommended. It is better if that is reduced to 15 mg a day. Please let me know the glucose levels and HbA1c% Then only I can comment. Plus I need to know the diet pattern and extent of exercise, weight and height. Thanks.

Is it safe to use Himalaya Diabecon to control diabetics or any possible side effects? And what is the best medicine to control type-2 diabetics?

Is it safe to use Himalaya Diabecon to control diabetics or any possible side effects? And what is the best medicine ...
Mr. lybrate-user, The tablet mentioned may be useful as a supportive or additional therapy. But on its own it will not help in controlling blood glucose level. For that you need either modern anti-diabetic drugs or Insulin injections. Unfortunately a lot of unsubstantiated claims are made. Thanks.

Is trika .25 mg. Tablet the right medication for the jet lagged? Is it harmful for a Type 2 Diabetic?
It should be taken only if your doctor prescribes it for you (depends upon case history and physical examination ). Read more about jetlag and how it can be managed naturally by adapting healthy habits. Any treatment that is not needed can disturb the body mechanism (physiology) and thereby affect the outcome in the long term. Adapting a healthy lifestyle is a better choice than depending upon medicines for every minor problems. Read more from the internet to understand how healthy habits can influence health and wellness (especially in diabetes patients ).
