For the attention of Type - 1 diabetics




For the attention of Type - 1 diabetics
  1. Type 1 diabetics need insulin injections. The benefits of exercises for these people depend on the quantity and type of insulin they take. If their blood sugar level is 259 mg / dl with ketones or if the blood sugar level alone is 300 m.g. or above, avoid exercising.
  1. If the glucose level in the blood is less than 100 mg, take a little / sufficient quantity of starchy food and then only start to exercise.
  1. The site of insulin injection should be in the non exercising part of the body. The dose is to be reduced when exercise in anticipated. The reduction in dosage has to be done in consultation with your doctor.
  1. Avoid exercising during peak insulin action.
  1. Keep carbo - hydrate food nearby and within reach, while exercising. In case of hypoglycemia, this could be of help.
  1. Warm - up before the exercises by doing simple, known warm - up exercises.

For the attention of Type - 2 diabetics

  1. The benefits of exercises for type 2 diabetics are substantial. When exercises are associated with diet regimen, weight could be shed.

Diabetic Doubts - 2


Diabetic Doubts - 2
When wounds take a long time to heal, can a diabetic undergo surgery?


The surgeon carries out the operation only after bringing the sugar level

under control. Because very special care is taken during surgery, diabetic persons can undergo surgical operations.


    Can a diabetic person observe "Fast' during auspicious days?
No. Fasting is as dangerous as over eating for a diabetic patients. During
fasting, body does not get energy through food. It is hence forced to utilise glucogen saved in the liver and fat from body tissues. Absence of insulin during fasting, can worsen the health ofdiabetics.

 Surgically, liver and kidneys could be transplanted. Is transplant of pancreas possible?

 So far transplant of pancreas has not been successfully done.

 Diabetes is not caused by eating sweets then why diabetic patients are not allowed to eat sweets?


 When pancreas is damaged, it does not produce insulin, resulting inaccumulation of sugar in the body, causing diabetes. If the diabetic patient takes sweets, the excessive sugar further damages the already damaged pancreas; more inflammation afflicts its beta cells. When you eat sugarless foods the carbohydrates get converted into glucose and digested. The increase in sugar level caused by this process is less than the increase in sugar level caused by sweets. Hence diabetic patients are prohibited from eating sweets.

 Rice is to be avoided

Rice can be taken every day. But eating wheat chappathis as an
exchange food is good for diabetics. Though rice and wheat contain more or less the same quantity of carbohydrates, wheat takes a little, longer time to digest. It needs less insulin. Hence wheat foods are 'easy' on insulin. The carbohydrates in rice digest faster and quickly mix with blood & raise blood sugar level.

Diabetic Doubts - 2
 Can diabetics take honey?

No. Honey is also sugar - Hence avoid honey.

 Is potato harmful to diabetics?

Potato is a complex carbo hydrate food. It must be taken in moderate quantities.

 Can a diabetic patient, once in a while, over eat whatever he likes and then pop - in an extra diabetic tablet?

No. This is a risky habit.

 Bitter foods counter sugar caused disorders.

No. When the food crosses your mouth, all the tastes are one and the same.

 When sugar is not seen in the urine over a continuous period of time, does it mean that diabetes is well controlled?

Most of the time, when the sugar level in the blood crosses 180 mg, it is
found in the urine. Some times even when the level exceede 200 mg, sugar is not found in the urine. Hence urine test for sugar alone is not enough. Blood test also must be carried out.

 Can diabetic patients take "Tender coconut water"?

Tender coconut is a natural healthy food. But it is not suitable for diabetic

persons. Food - experts say that in one glass of tender coconut water, 8 to 10 gms of mostly sugar rich carbohydrate is present. The sugar level in the blood, hence, may jump up. If you have to drink tender coconut take only 1/2 cup, along with nuts like almond. Do not take fruits along with tender coconut.

The benefits of exercise



          
The benefits of exercise
  Inagine, several thousands of years back, in B.C. 606, the great ayurveda guru 'sushruta' had improved the health of diabetics by correcting metabolic changes. Decrease the body's resistance to insulin. Exercises need energy. The need for glucose increases. Thus sugar in the blood is depleted. Insulin is stimulated. Exercised body accepts excess sugar (glucose) and 'burns' it.

Other benefits of Exercises

  • There is a direct relationship between high blood pressure and mortality. Physical exercise reduces B.P. and mortality rates.
  • Exercise postpones aging; increase life span, improves health and keeps one, young.
  • Strengthens blood vessel and helps proper blood circulation. 
  • Reduces onslaught of diseases. Decreases damages by diabetes. 
  • Improves HDL levels and decreases LDL levels, in blood. 
  • Strengthens muscles, especially heart muscles. 
  • Improves body's disease fighting defences. 
  • Burns calories. Helps reduce weight.
  • Improves functional ability of brain and functions of Nervous system 
  • Strengthens bone and help smooth functioning of bone joints. 
  • Averts obesity.
  • Helps in evacuation of body wastes.
  • Alleviates stress, depression and Tension. Improves mental health.
Diabetes results from malfunction of pancreas and hence asanas that
exercise the stomach, waist, hips are beneficial. For example asanas like makarasana which reduces fat in the region of hips and abdomen.

Two types of exercises 

  1. Aerobic exercises : Walking, jogging, cycling, swimming, tennis etc - These are aerobic exercises which need more oxygen
  1. other exercises - lifting, bending the limbs

Managing after onset



         
 Managing after onset
   Do not get upset when your doctor says you have diabetes. Do not worry. One can live with diabetes for years. Follow the following suggestions.

Ways to tackle diabetes

  1. Proper treatment and medication.
  1. Monitoring with timely tests and check - ups
  1. Diet regimen
  1. Maintaining correct body weight
  1. Physical exercises, yoga
  1. Life style modifications

Proper treatment & medication

This is the first essential step. Consulting a good specialist right from beginning may help avoiding several complications. The details you should know from the specialist are:-

a)    The cause (s) for your diabetes

b)    The proper methods to administer insulin injection

c)    Proper storage of insulin

d)    How to adjust insulin dosage and when

e)    How to test blood sugar level at home

f)     How to manage when hypoglycemia occurs? Its symptoms

g)    The treatment option when other diseases (flu, fever etc) strike

h)   Exercises, yoga

i)     Full details of Diet regimen to be followed

j)     Other complications of diabetes.

Administering medicine orally, for diabetes started in 1926. "Synthalin"
extracted from Guanidine was the first medicine, to be given orally. Then in 1965, medicines based on "Sulfonylurea" were introduced. These medicines are suitable for Type - 2 diabetic patients only - not for Type 1 diabetics.

            Oral medicines are not very effective in chronic Type 2 diabetes ( 8 to 10 years old). When that stage is reached, Type - 2 patients may need insulin. Oral medicines are contra - indicated in the following cases and should not be given:-

1.    Type 1 diabetics

2.    Pregnant women and lactating mothers

3.    Acute heart diseases

4.    Persons with liver, respiratory disorders.

 Managing after onset
As far as Type 1 diabetics are concerned, 'Insulin through injection' is the only
treatment best for them. Research is going on regarding increased efficacy of diabetic treatment by mixing beta glucosidoge medicine Acorbose with insulin. Acarbos should not be given to patients with diabetic ketoacidosis, cirrhosis of liver and stomach disorders.

            Presently, insulin mixed with metforminin based medicines reduces blood glucose and the quantity of insulin needed, by 25%

Ayurvedic medicines

            The are described in a separate chapter.

Tests for managing diabetes

1.    Daily monitoring - Test for blood sugar level once or twice in the home itself

2.    Weekly once - Testing for blood sugar level - fasting, on empty stomach, before the noon meals, before dinner and if possible, early morning at 3 A.M.

3.    Once Every 15 days (or every 3 weeks) - Serum fructosamine;
 Fructosamine is a protein - ketoamoine product resulting from glycation of plasma proteins. It assesses control of diabetes for previous 3 to 4 weeks.

4.    Once in 3 months - Glycosylated Haemoglobin - This is for testing sugar saturated blood red cells and has been already discussed. When blood sugar level increases, haemoglobin protein, (which carries the oxygen) undergoes changes. Ordinary routine tests indicate only the sugar level at the time of tessing. But this modern test shows sugar level variation since 3 months. If the haemoglobin level is 7%, it is o.k. But if is shown to be 9% or 12%, then it means that diabetes is not under control.

5.    Once in 6 months - Serum lipids, (including cholestrol) (Serum is the pale fluid that separates from clotted blood or blood plasma that is allowed to stand). Lipids are natural compounds, insoluble in water e.g. fats, steroids etc). Serum Urea / creatinine, micro albuminuria

6.    Once in a year - Chest x ray, ECG, Peripheral vascular assessment, Doppler test, Kidney function test, etc.

Besides these, check-ups for high blood pressure, cholestrol levels, should be
under taken as per your doctor's advice.

Monitoring Diabetes 

            The tests mentioned above are to be carried out on your doctor's advice. Further management of diabetes, after its onset, is detailed in the coming chapters.

Male impotence and diabetes



           
Male impotence and diabetes
Wen a man indulges in the sex act, involvement and proper function of the nerves are very important. The sex act is stimulated by two functions - smell and touch sensations. These functions are carried out by sensitive, minute nerves. Scientific surveys indicate that heightened smell - sensory function is responsible for arousal of more than normal sexual desire in women during and immeditely after menstruation.

            Vision nerves also induce sexual desire to a great extent. Because of its ready action, a man gets sexually aroused when he sees a woman. Infact due to the action of vision nerves, a person while sleeping, dreams of indulging in sexual inter course. Touching or caressing cause sexual arousal and makes the male organ swell. The dorsal cells located in the front of male organs are highly sensitive. The reason why male organ gets erect, when some one touches or caresses the genitals.

            A male's organ contains three sinusoids. These in turn contain 'tissues that cause' stiffening. Besides, the structure of male organ includes two 'corpora cavernosa' and one corpus spongiosem. Depending on blood suply, these three either expand or shrink. Capillaries and veins branch out and reach the sinusoid. Small veins and capillaries surround the penis like a net.

           
Male impotence and diabetes
Stimulated by the above factors, the brain sends message to the male organ via the spinal cord. Cavernous and other blood vessels dilate. Blood flows easily into the widened blood vessels. Filled with blood, the penis increases in size, stiffens and stands erect. Muscles, tie up the returning veins like an elastic. The blood can not immediately return and hence the penis retains its action till ejaculation. When the sexual desire is satiated, the above process, is carried out in reverse.

            The penis needs copious blood for stiffened erection. The blood vessels dilate when penis stiffens and retains their normal size in normal conditions. Diabetes causes loss of action in the blood vessels. Blood vessels struggle to store the blood. When blood circulation in the entire body is affected the spinal cord is impaired. This causes loss of erection resulting in Depression and tension, which affect the desire for sex. Even when the blood sugar level in under controll, the following also cause erectile dysfunction.

            Disease causing germs, fats (high cholesterol), High blood pressure, Allergy to drugs, Thyroid, Tension, Stress, Hormonal problems, Age, body weight, Obesity, lack of exercise, all these combined with diabetes cause impotence / sexual dysfunctions.

Pancreas

           
Pancreas
Pancreas is located in the back of the stomach, between lower abdomen and back bone. One end of if touches the dueodenum and other end, spleen. It weights about 75 grams and is about 15 cm long.

            Pancreas supplies digestive enzymes (Pancreatic juice) to the small intestine and hormones to blood.

            Besides secretion of digestive enzymes, pancreas has a more important task - secretion of three hormones. In its tail end, Pancreas has 'Langerhan' islets. These islets are made of 'ductless' cells, numbering about 10 lakhs. There are two types of cells in these islets. One is termed as 'Alpha' cells and the other, as 'Beta' cells. The alpha cells produces 'Glucagon' hormone. The Beta cells produce "Insulin' hormone. These two hormones play a vital role in metabolism. These reach the liver through" Inferior venacava".

            Besides these two hormones, pancreas produces another hormone called 'Somatostatin' . The function of these hormones are

1.    Insulin reaches glucose to the body tissues
2.    Glucagon has the opposite characteristics of Insulin. If the sugar level in the blood drops, it stimulates the liver to release its stored sugar.
3.    Somatostatin - This hormone halts the production of the above two hormones, when necessary.

Diseases affecting Pancreas

Pancreas
If pancreas is affected, production of insulin reduces or completely stops. Diabetes occurs. Inflammation of the pancreas is the main disease affectiong pancreas. Inflammation of pancreas is called acute pancreatitis. The other reasons for pancreatic dysfunction are
1.    Multiple endocrine Neoplasia syndrome - (Cancer of the ductless glands or benign cysts, swellings). This is a rare disease affecting the ductless glands.
2.    Mytonic dystropy / steinert diseases - These are severe diseases affecting muscles and could cause diabetes through pancreas damage.
3.    Mixture of Adrenalin, Pituitary secretions, Cortico - steroids and other assoiated diseases.
4.    Mutation of genes
5.    Cystic fibrosis
6.    Hemo chromatosis - This hereditry disease is caused by excess of iron in the body.

Production of insulin by the Betacells is a continuous process. It is independent of glucose level in the blood. If the production is more, it is stored in the 'Vacuole' (a place in the cytoplasm of the cell).


Blood glucose level goes up, immediately after taking food. Beta cells immediately secrete glucose and send it to blood. Insulin helps to reach glucose to two thirds of body cells. It controls glucose distribution and storage. Excess glucose is stored as 'Glycogen' in the liver and muscle tissues. When the level of glucose drops, glycogin quickly converts into glucose and replenishes. For this process. Glycagon helps. This conversion takes place only in the liver. Muscle tissues lack the ability to make the conversion. It must be understood that glycogen in different from glucagon. Glucagon is a hormone.
