Diabetes, which is excessive glucose in your blood, leads to serious health problems if left untreated.
Diabetes is a serious health issue. It’s the one of the leading causes of death across the world.
Consuming sugar itself doesn’t cause diabetes. But there is one way that sugar can influence whether a person gets type 2 diabetes.
Symptoms of diabetes include
– Increased thirst, hunger and urination
– Blurred vision
– Numbness or tingling in the feet or hands
– Unexplained weight loss
Extra belly fat is linked to insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and heart and blood vessel disease.
How is Diabetes gotten?
When we eat any kind of food, our body takes that food and turns it into energy (sugar) while digesting it. This is what gives us the energy we need. During this process, insulin is produced from our pancreas which controls the sugar in our bloodstream. This entire process is what keeps our body healthy.
Without the pancreas producing this insulin, the sugar will stay in our blood and begin to create serious health issues.
High blood sugar have been known to cause blindness, kidney failure, nerve damage, and other organ function problems, and if left untreated, it can be fatal.
There is more likelihood to develop type 2 diabetes if you are not physically active, overweight or obese.
Extra weight can causes insulin resistance and can be noticed amongst people with type 2 diabetes. Where the body fat is located also makes a difference.
