What is Diabetes?
The concentration of glucose in the blood is about 70 to 110 mg/dl in healthy people. Hormonal control ensures that this area is not exceeded or lowered. Insulin plays the main role in stabilizing the glucose concentration. In diseases that affect the production of insulin, this leads to increased glucose concentrations and as a result of metabolic disorders. The most common metabolic disorder is diabetes mellitus, which, if left untreated, can lead to vascular disease – renal insufficiency (glomerulosclerosis), retinal damage (retinopathy, blindness) or arterial occlusive disease (heart attacks, apoplexy). To treat the disease according to medical treatment, the early diagnosis of this disease is of great importance.
What consequences can an elevated blood sugar level have?
In the long term, too high blood sugar damages all blood vessels of the human body. Viral disorders, kidney failure, nerve damage, erectile dysfunction and poor wound healing are the consequences. The risk of heart attack and stroke in diabetic patients has increased dramatically.
How big is my diabetes risk?
The risk of developing diabetes may be increased by hereditary factors: are there cases of diabetes in your close relatives (parents, siblings)? Severe thirst, frequent urination, or unexplained weight loss can be symptoms of diabetes, as can rapid fatigue and blurred vision. Significant obesity and lack of exercise increase the risk of disease.
