Discover What Makes You Tackle Diabetes

 

 

According to the World Diabetic Foundation, one in every two person, currently living with diabetes, is undiagnosed. More than 62 million persons in India are diabetic, which is higher than 7.1 % of the adult population, as per the World Health Organisation.

 

We wonder what could be the motivating factors to get people to be more proactively concerned about their own precious health.

 

Don't Be Complacent

 

Untreated diabetes can lead to chronic health conditions to severe emergency cases. The most difficult part of treating people with diabetes is to make them understand that there are real consequences of not managing the disorder and their lifestyles.

 

It’s quite a task to convince them to consider their health today to avoid any emergency medical conditions in future.

 

Diabetes is not just about high blood sugar; it’s an invitation to diseases which can lead to multiple organ failure.  The damaged nerve endings in foot can make you lose balance while walking and can even make it difficult to stand properly which can make you fall on uneven ground.

 

Blood sugar contributes to plaque formation in the arteries which might be the biggest reason for a heart attack without any symptoms. With diabetes, a person can become immune-compromised and suffer from increased risk of picking up infections. The consequences of diabetes can be devastating and even fatal.

 

Despite knowing the risk of diabetes and its complications, we do not understand the severity of it until we see our loved ones get affected by it. We should try comparing the cost of treatment with proactive healthcare through preventive health services. Treatment will invariably cost us a lot more than prevention.

 

Lifestyle Changes 

 

To keep diabetes at bay, one can start with gradual changes in lifestyle under supervision of a medical expert. 

 

We should be aware of the fact that simply dieting or going for a jog is not going to help until and unless we know how our bodies react to such measures. It is highly advisable to take advice from the medical experts to avoid any wrong step towards making a good change for a healthy living.

 

We should not wait until problematic symptoms start surfacing. Rather, we should be proactive towards the risk factors which can be taken care of beforehand.

 

Conclusion

 

It really needs a positive outlook to bring the change we desire in our precious health. Always remember that diabetes does not kill anyone, its complications do…and these can be easily controlled and treated.

 

Resolve to be the change for yourself and your loved ones!
