What is diabetes
Diabetes is
What is diabetes if you mean it, means glucose is excreted through urine.
It is a disease that glucose caused by food digestion is not properly used in our body and accumulates in the blood due to lack of insulin secretion or decreased cellular reactivity to insulin. As, in diabetics, the level of glucose in the blood increases, it can lead to complications in various parts of the body.
Causes of
Diabetes
The cause of diabetes is not yet clear, but it may be happen due to the lack of insulin produced by the pancreatic beta cells and their resistance to insulin action.
Diagnosis of
Diabetes
Symptoms of diabetes can vary and sometimes have no symptoms at all. Therefore, we recommend that you test for diabetes if:
Urine Glucose Blood Glucose Test Standard Glucose Load Test
As a method to check the amount of glucose discharged from the urine, if the test results positive you have a blood glucose test to get an accurate diagnosis. (Positive test results are not all diabetes) If you suspect diabetes due to urine glucose test results or subjective symptoms of diabetes, blood glucose tests should be done. Blood is taken on an empty stomach in the morning, and 75 g oral glucose is administered for 1 hour and 2 hours.
Representative Symptoms of
Diabetes
Polyuria & Frequent urination When your blood sugar rises, you get to urinate a lot because glucose is pulled out of your urine together with a lot of water.
Intake lots of water You will continue to drink water to replenish hydration from polyuria & frequent urination.
Heavy Feeding The food we eat is not used enough for energy, hunger will continue to eat.
Weight Loss Since glucose is not used as an energy source, it falls into the urine, so even if you eat a lot, you lose weight.
Fatigue Fatigue comes easily because of inadequate use of glucose, which is an energy source.
