All about Diabetes & Its Treatment
Diabetes is a metabolic disease that causes High Blood Sugar. The hormone insulin moves sugar from the blood into your cells to be stored or used for energy. With diabetes, our body either doesn’t make enough insulin or can’t effectively use the insulin it does make.
Symptoms of diabetes
Some of the symptoms of diabetes are increased thirst, frequent urination, extreme hunger, unexplained weight loss, presence of ketones in the urine, fatigue, irritability, blurred vision, slow-healing sores, erectile dysfunction, frequent infections, such as gums or skin infections, and vaginal infections
Complications associated with diabetes include:
- Heart disease, heart attack, and stroke
- Retinopathy and vision loss
- Hearing loss
- Foot damage such as infections and sores that don’t heal
- Skin conditions such as bacterial and fungal infection
- Depression, dementia
Type 1 Diabetes treatment
Type 1 Diabetes is usually diagnosed in childhood and adolescence. It is a condition where a person’s pancreas produces no insulin because the body’s immune cells attack insulin producing cells. About 10 percent of people with Diabetes, have this type
Insulin: Insulin is the main treatment for Type 1 diabetes. People with Type 1 diabetes need regular injections of insulin to manage the levels of glucose in their blood.
Diet: You may need to limit the number of carbohydrates you eat each day. You’ll also need to balance your carb intake with your insulin doses. A dietician can help design a diabetes meal plan with the right balance of carbs, fats, and proteins.
Type 2 Diabetes treatment
Type 2 Diabetes occurs when your body becomes resistant to insulin, and sugar builds up in your blood. The risk for type 2 diabetes increases if you are overweight, age 45 or older, have a family history, & have high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
Diet: Diet and exercise can help manage Type 2 diabetes. Carb counting plays an important part. A dietician can help figure the right meal plan. Try to eat small meals throughout the day. Emphasize healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains & healthy fats such as olive oil.
Drugs: If lifestyle changes aren’t enough to lower your blood sugar, you’ll need to take medication. These drugs lower your blood sugar in a variety of ways:
- Slow breakdown of sugars/starchy foods (Alpha-glucosidase)
- Reduce the amount of glucose liver makes (Biguanides)
- Change the way your body produces insulin (peptides)
Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar is higher than normal, but it’s not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Making simple adjustments to diet and fitness routine can delay or prevent type 2 diabetes:
- At least 150 minutes per week of aerobic exercise
- Avoid fats & refined carbohydrates
- Eat fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Our Patients Are Redefining Success
“I was just done with making adjustments and compromises with my food being a diabetic. Looking at my frustration my wife started looking for something that could extract me out of such lifelessness. Then she came to know about Mantra Care, Rwanda where dietitians and nutritionists not only give directions to just such certain food items but they replace them with something healthy and tasty. Now I enjoy my favourite recipes while keeping my blood sugar level close to normal.”

Frequently Ask Questions
Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood sugar or glucose is too high. Insulin, a hormone, helps glucose from food get into your cells to be used for energy. Sometimes the body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t use insulin well. Glucose then does reach cells and stays in your blood. This increases blood glucose levels.
There are 3 main types of diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system destroys the cells that release insulin, which is a hormone that helps the body use or store glucose.
Type 2 diabetes develops when the body isn’t able to use insulin properly.
Gestational diabetes is a condition that pregnant women develop when their body is not able to make and use insulin properly during pregnancy.
There is no proven cause of Type 2 diabetes. The condition is linked to being overweight, but not everybody with Type 2 diabetes is overweight. Genetic, environmental factors, lack of physical activity, older age, and family history may also play a role.
