In our days we all have relatives or friends who have diabetes. But many who consider themselves healthy, not too far from the same diagnosis, because their health condition could be classified as prediabetes
These people sugar level in the blood remains above normal, but still below the figures, in which the sugar level is considered diabetes of the 2nd type. Doctors believe that if nothing is done, within 10 years prediabetes will develop full-diabetes-2.
Although officially the condition of the body is still not classified as diabetes, long-term damage caused by diabetes (especially in the circulatory system), can already begin.
How can you find out prediabetes or not?
Unfortunately, the exact symptoms of pre-diabetes is not. Prediabetics status is determined by blood tests.
But it is possible for some symptoms
to assume whether a particular person is to be prediabetes or not.1. The constant hunger
. People suffering from hunger, because the body is no longer able to use blood glucose as they could before.2. Weight.
Since man is constantly hungry, eating more than normal and gaining weight. At this stage you can still go back to normal.
What you can do in this situation? Change your lifestyle
— eat right, move enough and have a normal weight, which is especially important. When performing such simple rules, the level of sugar in the blood gradually returned to normal and possible problems will be forgotten.3. Frequent urination
. This happens because the body tries to get rid of excess sugar through the release of the urine. Thus the body loses a lot of fluid. The person begins to experience thirst. You have to drink to make up for the loss of water.4. The fatigue and weakness.
This is because in the cells of the body develops a resistance to the action of insulin, so the cells can't use floating in the blood glucose. The cells remain hungry, have no energy.
But what is prediabetes, and then diabetes?
Official medicine has not come to any one conclusion. According to the specialists of the famous Mayo clinic, excessive fat, especially belly fat, and insufficient physical activity are important factors.
As for the excessive blood glucose, most glucose enters the body with food containing carbohydrates.
If we get food more carbohydrates than the body needs for normal functioning, the level of "sugar" (glucose) in the blood becomes elevated. The body tries to eliminate this condition, so the pancreas produces extra insulin to remove excess sugar.
All of this is normal, if excessive carbs ingested only occasionally, from time to time. But when it becomes a daily phenomenon, the body is in a state of carbohydrate stress. The blood sugar levels are almost constantly elevated, not because of disease but because of the excessive carbohydrates in the diet. No wonder diabetes called a "disease of malnutrition".
When the blood sugar level above normal
"You have the blood sugar above normal. This may mean that you have prediabetes..." that was how usually goes a conversation with a doctor about the results of recent blood sugar. Bad news I hear thousands of people each day. But not everyone knows that this news is worse than just the news of a possible prediabetes.Excess blood sugar
leads to prediabetes or even diabetes. There are many other problems, for example:
- deteriorating eyesight,
- occurs cataract,
- damaged nervous system,
- there are problems with a kidney and heart
- deteriorating immune system.
But that's not all.
That cancer and diabetes are related, has long been known. But gradually it became clear that even a small excess of sugar in the blood increases the risk of developing cancer. The first connection between cancer and sugar was noticed in 1931. Cancer cells use blood sugar (glucose) to power. Since this fact was repeatedly confirmed.
Because millions of people sugar level in the blood is moderately elevated, it can be said that all these people have as prediabetics and a precancerous condition of the body. It is possible that diabetes, cancer and cardiac problems are all manifestations of the same disease "excess sugar in the body."What do you do to maintain the level of blood sugar in the normal range? Is it possible to lower it on my own and without medication? Yes, you can. Eating the right foods solves the problem.
You have probably guessed that we now turn to the subject "Carbohydrates in food"
As you may recall, carbohydrates
are simple and complex. Simple — it's usually all sweets, including fruits.
Simple carbohydrates are quickly absorbed by the body, the blood sugar level increases rapidly, there is energy. Then after 1-2 hours, the sugar level drops rapidly, causing an increasing a feeling of hunger, fatigue, nervousness and sensations shaking throughout the body. Familiar?
To get rid of this unpleasant condition, you have to eat something, and usually people are drawn to something sweet and the cycle repeats. This condition known to diabetics, and many prediabetics.
If you do not eat anything — this will increase the blood sugar level, it may so fall that a diabetic go into a coma (extreme cases), and prediabetic will be very hungry and nervous, trying frantically to find the source of simple carbohydrates (sweets, honey, fruits, sugar, sweet juices, etc.). If prediabetic eat quite a lot of simple carbohydrates, the blood will again overflow with sugar while the insulin the pancreas will not lower its level more or less a safe level.
Here is a chaos we're having in your body, if you feed him in the morning with a sweet bagel and a Cup of coffee, noon — pizza with coffee or sweet tea, the evening meal that ends with some kind of dessert. And in between food and energy drinks, cakes, candy or tea with a spoon of honey.

It is clear that if we exclude from the diet simple carbs
will disappear and this state of the UPS and downs of blood sugar. With a small amount of carbohydrates in the diet people feel relaxed and comfortable, they have enough energy for the whole day, improves blood pressure, increases concentration and memory... Can be long to enumerate all the advantages.
So what's the deal? Why we all love simple carbohydrates that do not restrict ourselves? And what to do to "stop loving" the sweet? The answer can only be an understanding of how the body responds to different types of food and the use of therapeutic low-carb diets.published
