Islamabad: With the number of diabetic patients increasing in Pakistan, the fight against its proper management is essential. Digital healthcare startup Medworks, which is centered around supervision and management of diabetes, has launched a glucose-based smartphone app known as Glu-Sage.
Many more people have blood sugar levels above the normal range, but not high enough to be diagnosed as having diabetes.
Diabetes Treatment with Home Remedy
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high.
There are two main types of diabetes:
Type 1 diabetes – where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin
Type 2 diabetes – where the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or the body’s cells don’t react to insulin
Causes of diabetes:
The amount of sugar in the blood is controlled by a hormone called insulin, which is produced by the pancreas (a gland behind the stomach). When food is digested and enters your bloodstream, insulin moves glucose out of the blood and into cells, where it’s broken down to produce energy.
However, if you have diabetes, your body is unable to break down glucose into energy. This is because there’s either not enough insulin to move the glucose, or the insulin produced does not work properly.
There are no lifestyle changes you can make to lower your risk of type 1 diabetes. You can help manage type 2 diabetes through healthy eating, regular exercise, and achieving a healthy body weight. source
