Your Health and Diabetes

Diabetes, officially called Diabetes Mellitus, is one of the present day’s biggest causes of death around the world. Ranked number seven on a list of chronic diseases, people who have diabetes will suffer from one form of it or another. If the pancreas is unable to produce or use insulin in the proper way, diabetes is the result and must be treated accordingly.

Sugar is ingested with every meal taken, since a part of it is converted to sugar. After that the sugar makes its way into the bloodstream where it enters the cells by way of insulin, which is a hormone made by the pancreas. Normally the pancreas makes enough insulin to handle the amount of sugar present in a persons system. Diabetes causes a persons pancreas to either produce little or no insulin, or the cells won’t respond as they should to insulin. This will allow sugar to build up in the blood that presents even more problems. It passes unused through the urine of the affected. As time goes by, the high blood sugar levels can cause eye damage that will lead to diabetic retinopathy and blindness if not properly cared for. Since diabetes compromises vascular health, strokes, myocardial infarctions (heart attacks), and peripheral artery disease are all associated with diabetes. Diabetes has also been found to have a connection with impotence and digestion issues.

Type 1 (insulin dependent) and Type 2 (non-insulin dependent) are the two main types of diabetes. Type I diabetes, known as insulin dependent, usually affects younger people under 20 years of age whose pancreas doesn’t produce insulin. Type II, known also as non-insulin diabetes, has a reduced amount of insulin produced by the pancreas or cells that no longer respond or both.

Known to be genetically based, Type I diabetes is coupled with an abnormal immune response. Medical experts believe that Type II diabetes is caused by genetics, its causes are still mostly unknown.

The symptoms of Type I diabetes are usually obvious. Symptoms of Type II diabetes is opposite of Type I. A lot of Type II diabetics don’t know they this illness until they need help for heart problems, blood vessel ailments, stroke, go blind, skin outbreaks, kidney issues, nerve irritation or sexual problems.

A person can take steps to improve the chances of avoiding diabetes but there is no foolproof way to prevent diabetes. It means doing such things as exercising, managing weight, eating right, not smoking, and not drinking alcohol to excess.

Your Emotional Health and Diabetes

So you maybe wondering what does your emotional well being have to do with diabetes? Well, there a lot of factors that contribute toward diabetes, including other diseases as well. But one factor that many of us don’t put into consideration is our emotional health.

One example would be stress. Most of us knows that stress kills. Stress effects our immune system and it makes us more susceptible to diseases. And when you’re stressed out, you’re not likely to take better care of yourself. You’re not likely to eat nutritious foods or exercise. Abuse of alcohol or drugs is a good sign of poor emotional health.

When stress persists in our bodies, it causes the pancreas (the organ around your stomach that produces insulin) to work harder, producing more insulin. Overtime, the overproduction of insulin, resulting from stress as well as poor eating and physical inactivity, causes the pancreas to shut down, thus, causing diabetes.

Diabetes is sometimes triggered by lack of joy in one’s life, as well as a bad diet and physical inactivity. When the emotions are out of balance, the physical body can exhibit nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, immune conditions, or disease symptoms.

The CDC states that 85% of all (physical) diseases have an emotional component; other experts claim that this number may be as high as 100%. It is no longer a secret that our physical health is deeply connected to our mental projections and beliefs. While this may scare many who are not ready to take responsibility for how they feel, what they think, and their beliefs about their world, it is also hugely powerful, putting the power back in our hands. Through our choices of how we deal with our thoughts and emotions, we are responsible for and truly in control of our health and well-being.

So, what can you do to keep this from happening to you?

- If you’re surrounded by people who’re living unhealthy lifestyles, deviate away from these people and surround yourself with people who are living healthy lifestyles.

- Find activities you really enjoy: Listen to some good music, do some workouts you enjoy, read inspiring books, associate with inspiring people, travel, and so on.
