Fighting Diabetes Mellitus...

By Javier Fuller

Diet control is an important part of the diabetes treatment. There are certain do's, and not to do's as far as eating is concerned for a diabetic patient. Eating wrong food is as good as wrong medication in diabetes. You have a lifetime to suffer, for your negligence on this count.

The foods that are unacceptable are those containing sugar like molasses, corn syrup, all white breads, rice products, millet, corn, bananas, watermelons, raisins, potatoes, carrots, beets, alcohol, beer and all liquor except red wine. The permitted food items are barley, whole wheat pita, bean threads, green leafy vegetables, nuts and olives.

It is reported that 15 million Americans have Type II diabetes and a good percentage of them are unaware that they have the disease. This type of diabetes is also called non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). In USA, it is the sixth largest killer disease.

There are two types of Diabetes Mellitus: Type I diabetes millitus and type II diabetes mellitus.

The other name for Type I diabetes millitus is insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). This disease is an auto immuae disease. The pancreas produces no insulin. For survival, the patient has to depend on insulin shots. There is no cure for this type of diabetes.


The other name for type II diabetes mellitus is non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). It is also known by the name adult onset diabetes millitus, AODM. It is a metabolic disorder. Body is unable to make enough or proper use of insulin. It occurs mostly in individuals over the age of 40. The incidence increases with age. A good majority of the type II diabetes patients are obese.


Type II diabetes was the 'privilege' of the middle age and older people. Now it is taking into its net, the younger generation also.

In short, it can be said that diabetes shakes the entire body of an individual. You are likely to catch the infection of the bladder and the skin. Abrupt fluctuations in the glucose levels can lead to blurred vision. Extremely high glucose levels can lead to diabetic coma.

Type I Diabetes mellitus is a dangerous disease and insulin is vital to patients. Without insulin, the patient is helpless and may lead to fatal blood sugar levels. Increased sugar level leads to increased urination, and loss of fluid and electrolytes in the urine. Without proper and controlled treatment, the patients of this type of diabetes may suddenly go into coma, known as diabetic coma. Until this day there is no medicine for diabetes. Hope for your life is in your diet and proper exercise!

Your morning walks! Talk less and walk more!
