How to Treat Diabetes Using Glucose Level Control
If you have Type 2 diabetes it is guaranteed that your pancreas will definitely be affected. Sugar, which is in most food we eat, converts itself into glucose once in our blood stream. Once it goes into the blood cells it is affected by insulin from the pancreas and our body utilizes it as fuel. A person who has Type 2 diabetes has some difficulty producing as well as utilizing insulin. While you may have copious amounts of glucose in your body, the cells have a difficult time looking for them.
When it comes to this medical condition, the American Diabetes Association plays a big role in amassing important information. One country considered to be unhealthy is America because 23.6 million of its populace has been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes affects ninety percent of this populace. Diabetic people (who are also somewhat overweight) unsurprisingly have relatives who also possess the same condition. The presence of too much glucose in your body could lead to irreparable damage to both the internal organs and the entire nervous system as well.
Life with Diabetes
The easiest and the most efficient way to treat your Type 2 diabetes is through healthy living practices on a daily basis. These practices include eating healthy and engaging in exercise. The healthy practices that you regularly do will have an enormous lasting and positive effect on you. To avoid health complications many doctors have recommended that you ensure that the glucose levels in your body are within the appropriate range.
The blood glucose level in your body can easily be monitored simply by using the finger prick test. Such a test is as good as an HbA1c test when it comes to checking and tracking your glucose fluctuations. This HbA1c test is able to determine the levels of glycated hemoglobin in your body, as well as determining if the glucose levels are on the high side. The average level which diabetics maintain, as per the A1c test results, is seven percent. One can experience a 40% reduction in the possibility of developing risks if people simply ensure that their A1c levels are kept at seven percent.
Too Much Control
A lot of studies nowadays indicate that keeping one’s a1c levels lower than seven percent could actually be a bad thing. There was one study which was done in Seattle’s Lancet and Swedish Medical Center that found out that there is a higher death risk for people whose levels are median at best and people who take insulin. On the other hand, other tests show that a seven percent A1c level is still quite healthy. While physicians take into account their patient’s medical history before the planned treatment, a 7% level of a1c is still good according to endocrinologist Matt Davies.

New Illuminati comments: If you’re concerned about diabetes (or obesity) avoid all margerines and processed oils – particularly ‘canola’ (which was previously known as the inedible fuel oil, rapeseed) - along with anything containing GM corn and all soy products. Avoiding meat is a wise course for all parties concerned. Regular outdoor exercise – even walking – will help cleanse your system and attune you to life.
Eastern medicine ascribes the earth element to the spleen and pancreas and has long recognised the link between the pancreas and sugar balance. Earth energy and these organs are related to one's abilities to empathise and to relate to internal and eternal patterns.
