Diabetes mellitus type II complications
Diabetes mellitus type 2 ( non-insulin dependent ) occurs in adulthood, usually in people who are 40 years of age or older. The development of this disease is associated with increased weight, blood pressure, a large amount of cholesterol in the blood. This disease can occur even when there is an excess of insulin in diabetes mellitus .
In 90% of patients with type 2 diabetes, the cells of the body are overloaded with fat, and because of this, insulin cannot help glucose enter the cells. To restore insulin sensitivity, cells must be freed from excess fat, and this can only be achieved by reducing body weight.
As you know, with elevated blood sugar levels, the body’s cells begin to starve, the patient becomes lethargic, gets tired quickly, feels thirsty and loses weight very much. But such weight loss is contraindicated for people with type 2 diabetes, because it occurs as a result of energy loss (glucose is excreted from the body). And this situation causes complications of type 2 diabetes associated with high blood sugar. That is why patients diagnosed with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus should reduce body weight by limiting dietary calorie intake and increasing their expenditure through physical activity. It is important to remember that fasting is contraindicated for such people, because it can cause unacceptable fluctuations in blood glucose levels for them.
With a disease such as type 2 diabetes , complications can affect the kidneys, eyes, lower limbs, blood vessels, and heart. To avoid them, it is necessary to adjust the mode of physical activity and strictly observe a balanced diet. An excellent assistant in this will be the book by A. D. Parkhomenko “Diabetes. Rational and varied nutrition “. Also, to prevent complications of type 2 diabetes mellitus, it is recommended to take various vitamins for diabetics, for example, the antioxidant complex Glucoberry.
