Treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus in Kharkov (m. Pushkinskaya)
Diabetes mellitus is an endocrine disease that can develop at any age. It is incurable. After the examination, either an excess or a deficiency of the insulin hormone can be diagnosed in a patient.
Diabetes course is chronic and all that can be done is to maintain the blood level of insulin and follow the doctor's prescriptions. Otherwise, a decreased or elevated blood sugar level will lead to health problems from pancreatitis to development of malignant tumors.
Diagnostics of diabetes mellitus helps to establish the diagnosis and to determine how much sugar is contained in the body and whether other vital indicators are normal (blood and urine tests, determination of hemoglobin level, evaluation of protein and lipid metabolism).
At the initial stage of the disease, it is sufficient to adhere to a diet and take medications prescribed by your doctor. You should exclude sugar-containing products from the diet: sweet fruit, confectionery, and spirits.
The earlier you start treatment, the lower the risk of complications. At the early stages, there are the following symptoms of diabetes mellitus:
- Constant sense of thirst
- Rapid fatigability
- Skin problems (itching and burning sensations)
- Increased urination.
You should take insulin-containing drugs as prescribed according to a strictly defined schedule and in the exact dosage. It helps the body to cope with sugar excess in time and prevents complications.
Causes of diabetes mellitus
An experienced endocrinologist will diagnose diabetes and determine its causes. Most often, the disease manifests itself against the background of stress, viral infections, and hereditary diseases. However, endocrinologists call problems with the pancreas, which cannot cope with the production of insulin, the main cause of the disease development.
Doctors call heredity and obesity another important factor, which provokes the disease. Scientists proved that type 2 diabetes (insulin-independent diabetes) is more likely to be inherited and it is comes more often from the father's line. A diabetes is characterized by a high glucose content in the blood. Unlike insulin-dependent diabetes, in this case, the pancreas produces a sufficient amount of insulin, which is necessary for the body.
As for extra pounds, the risk of diabetes in people prone to overweight is 2 times higher than in those who have normal weight. First, obesity threatens patients with a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. Therefore, it is vitally important for such people to go in for sports and take artificial sweeteners.
Complications of diabetes mellitus arise against the background of self-treatment, untimely treatment or failure to follow the doctor's recommendations (for example, increasing or decreasing the prescribed dose of medications).
Prevention of diabetes should always include a diet review, exercise and periodic examinations of the endocrinologist (at least once a year).
