Diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to regulate its insulin levels, which in turn leads to tissue damage, and in the worst case scenario, organ failure. There are two main types of Diabetes â Type 1 and Type 2. Although both these types are chronic and affects the bodyâs ability to regulate blood sugar or glucose, there are some fundamental differences.
Type 1 vs. Type 2 Diabetes
ï¾ People with type 1 diabetes donât produce insulin. People with type 2 diabetes donât respond to insulin the way they should; and further down into the disease, they often donât make enough insulin.
ï¾ Those suffering from type 1 diabetes may experience irritability and frequent mood swings, and may also voluntarily lose weight. People with type 2 diabetes may feel numbness and tingling in their hands or feet.
ï¾ Another significant difference is that the symptoms of type 1 diabetes develop comparatively faster, typically over the course of several weeks. On the other hand, many people with type 2 diabetes wonât see any symptoms for many years. The symptoms of type 2 diabetes develop slowly over the course of time.
Like most lifestyle diseases, once diagnosed with Diabetes (type 1 or Type 2), patients are usually prescribed anti-diabetic medicines for life. However, there are some home remedies which one can do to keep the blood sugar levels in check naturally. These ingredients are found in almost every household and you can start with these from tomorrow:
1. Methi Seeds (Fenugreek)
Soak 2 tablespoons of fenugreek seeds in water overnight, and have the water along with the seeds (whole or powdered) first thing the next morning.
2. Bitter Gourd (Karela)
Drink the juice of karela every morning in an empty stomach. It helps in lowering blood sugar levels
3. Indian Gooseberry (Amla)
Drink small quantities of Amla juice everyday to lower your blood sugar. It is an excellent source of Vitamin C.
4. Mango Leaves
Wash and sun-dry tender mango leaves and grind them to powder. Mix this powder with water and have every morning and night. Alternatively, you could boil some fresh mango leaves in a glass of water and leave it to cool overnight. Then drink the water in the morning on an empty stomach.
5. The fair share of Vitamin D
Lack of Vitamin D in the body has been related to insulin resistance and diabetes. Include Vitamin D rich foods in your daily diet such as soy milk, orange juice, yoghurt, cheese and cereals. Expose yourself to half an hour of early morning sunlight every day to extract the Vitamin D naturally.
