All about Diabetes & Its Treatment

High blood sugar is the hallmark of diabetes. Insulin transports sugar from the circulation to your cells, where it is stored or utilized for energy. Our bodies either don’t make enough insulin or can’t effectively utilize the insulin they do produce in persons with diabetes.

Symptoms of diabetes

Diabetes symptoms include excessive thirst, frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, ketones in the urine, tiredness, irritability, vision problems that take a long time to heal, erectile dysfunction, frequent infections of the gums or skin (such as thrush), and vaginal infections.

Diabetes complications

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

Diabetes Treatment

Type 1 Diabetes treatment

Type 1 diabetes usually develops in children and teenagers. It’s a condition in which the immune cells of the body attack insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, resulting in decreased insulin production. This is a form of diabetes that afflicts 10% of all persons with diabetes.

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

When your body becomes insulin-resistant, glucose builds up in your blood, resulting in type 2 diabetes. You are more likely to get type 2 diabetes if you are overweight, age 45 or older, have a family history of the disease, or 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)

Pre-diabetes treatment

Pre-diabetes is an illness in which blood sugar levels are greater than normal but not high enough to be classed as type 2 diabetes. You can help prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by making small modifications to your diet and exercise program:

  • At least 150 minutes per week of aerobic exercise
  • Avoid fats & refined carbohydrates
  • Eat fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.

Frequently Asked Questions

Insulin is a hormone that helps glucose from food get into your cells so that you may use it for energy. The body does not produce enough insulin or effectively utilize insulin at times. Glucose eventually reaches cells and remains in the blood as a result of this. Blood sugar levels rise as a consequence of this.

Types of diabetes include Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes. Insulin-producing cells are attacked by the immune system in Type 1 diabetes, leaving a person unable to produce insulin. type 2 diabetes is caused by poor insulin utilization. When mothers don’t have enough control over their blood sugar levels during pregnancy, Gestational Diabetes occurs. During pregnancy, a woman’s body isn’t able to generate or use insulin properly if she has gestational diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes has no known cause. Type 2 diabetes is associated with being overweight, although not everyone who has it is overweight. Genetics, lifestyle factors like inactivity, aging, and family history all play a role.

With a mobile app therapy, health coach sessions, doctor visits, and medicines, MantraCare addresses diabetes. Our South Africa health coaches work with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help you manage your Diabetes by eating properly, exercising regularly, and taking medications appropriately. Weight loss is an important part of managing type 2 diabetes since it helps people keep weight off while improving overall health.

Yes, diabetes drugs may be prescribed by online doctors at MantraCare. However, in certain jurisdictions where online prescriptions are not permitted, we will attempt to connect you with a local doctor. Alternatively, we also deliver diabesity medication in South Africa locally.

It’s not a question of which is better; it’s about availability and access. Everyone should have unlimited access to customized healthcare, in my opinion. We do not live in an ideal society, after all. Telemedicine enables you to connect with the greatest diabetes doctors on the planet while remaining in your home in South Africa.

We provide certain services such as app-based monitoring and a health blog for no cost. Other elements, such as Diabetes doctor appointments, expert discussions, and Diabetes drug purchases, are priced at a low rate. In the end, we are one of the most inexpensive ways to deal with diabetes in South Africa.

According to the American Diabetes Association, persons with diabetes should avoid foods that are high in sugar and carbohydrates. Another diabetic diet choice is one that includes a wide range of whole grains, fruits, and vegetables as smaller portions at frequent intervals.

There are several excellent diabetes doctors in South Africa. Without a doubt, there are many outstanding Diabetes specialists in South Africa. However, the majority of Diabetes specialists in South Africa utilize face-to-face encounters and conventional therapies. nEach visit to a diabetes doctor takes between 2 and 3 months to complete. You can meet your diabetes specialist daily with the Mantra Diabetes Care model – he monitors you every day and directs you if and when you want it – so the benefits from the Mantra Care Diabetes treatment program are generally better for most people.
