Diabetes is a growing problem, and the biggest problem is that many people don’t even know they have it. It can happen to anybody – old people, young people, overweight people, skinny people – But how can we tell when we are at risk?
Everything seems to be pointing back towards our modern-day lifestyle that is filled with fast foods, sugary soft drinks, and refined carbohydrates disguised in any shape, form, and size.
Diabetes is usually associated with older people or people who are overweight and obese. However, that does not mean that it is limited to these people, even people who seem fit and in shape may be at risk for developing type-2 diabetes or related problems.
Look out for these 4 warning signs as they might be red flags…
- Constant Thirst
Symptoms related to type-2 diabetes might not always be clearly visible, such as frequently feeling thirsty. It might take some time before this can be seen as a problem. Thirst due to diabetes can also be associated with other problems like dry mouth, constant hunger, constant need to urinate, and unexplained weight gain or weight loss.
When the sugar levels in the blood are higher than normal, it can leave you feeling dehydrated, which can cause regular headaches. Other tag-along effects of this can be blurry vision and fatigue.
Since most symptoms are not visible to the naked eye, it may be that you have had type-2 diabetes for a while without knowing it. One of the first visual symptoms of diabetes, which usually develops at a later stage, is infections. These include slow healing cuts or sores, frequent yeast infections, and itchy skin, especially in the groin area.
- Sexual Dysfunction
It is not uncommon for both men and women with type-2 diabetes to experience some form of sexual dysfunction. This is usually due to damage to the blood vessels and nerve endings, which is an effect of the high sugar levels in the bloodstream. It can include sexual dysfunction like erectile dysfunction in men, vaginal dryness in women, and difficulty reaching an orgasm in both men and women.
Some people need to be wearier than other. Certain things increase your chances of developing diabetes. Take these risk factors into serious consideration…
- Race or ethnicity
- Family history of diabetes
- Being 45 years of age or older
- More risk factors, increased risk of diabetes.
- Pregnancy diabetes (Gestational Diabetes)
- Being overweight or obese
- Leading an inactive lifestyle
- Smoking tobacco products
- Eating too much red meat, processed meat, high-fat dairy products, and sugar
- Suffering from high cholesterol levels
How can we manage and treat diabetes?
Here are 4 aspects to look at when getting diabetes under control, or minimizing the risk of developing it…
Losing weight and eating healthy are the best ways to start managing your diabetes. Be careful of carbohydrates in your diet, especially refined carbohydrates. Download the free Manna Diet from our website and follow the program. Otherwise, pay a visit to a qualified dietitian to get a meal plan that is custom made for you and your lifestyle.
Any form of exercise can go a long way – whether it is working in the garden, cleaning the house, taking the dogs for a walk, doing bodyweight exercises like sit-ups or push-ups, or even training for a marathon.
Try to get at least 30 minutes of exercise, 4 times a week. If possible, mix cardio and resistance training to make sure that you are getting the full benefit of your workout sessions.
- Stress Reduction:
Stress can be bad news for somebody with diabetes. As your blood pressure rises, so does your blood sugar level. So, it is important to get your stress under control. Although this might be easier said than done, you just need to find something that works for you.
