Diabetes is a disorder in which blood glucose levels are too high in the blood circulation. Diabetes is divided into 2, namely diabetes insipidus and diabetes mellitus. Both have insulin disorders but in type 1 diabetes (insipidus) there is damage to the pancreas which causes insufficient insulin hormone in the body that transports blood sugar so that there is an increase in glucose levels in the blood while in diabetes mellitus (type 2) insulin resistance occurs due to intake of insulin. uncontrolled glucose so that glucose levels become high in the blood.
To find out the type of diabetes, consultation, physical examination and supporting examinations such as blood tests are needed to determine the location of the abnormality. Generally, type 1 diabetes is acquired since childhood due to a possible genetic disorder, while type 2 diabetes is related to a person's lifestyle. Diabetes in a person cannot be said to be cured but blood sugar is controlled so that it becomes normal again when an examination is carried out.
The feeling of satiety is related to glucose levels in the blood and the hormones leptin and ghrelin that cause hunger. In people with controlled blood sugar, there is generally sufficient glucose in the tissues so that a person can feel full longer, in addition to a high-fiber diet can also keep the feeling of fullness lasting longer.
The effect caused by insulin is to enter glucose into the tissues so that blood sugar drops quickly, this allows an increase in appetite in diabetic people but still do a healthy diet in diabetes conditions where appetite remains high.
In people with diabetes, at the ends of the legs such as the feet or hands can occur nerve abnormalities due to damage due to high levels of sugar in the blood which can cause numbness, pain in the feet, or a decreased pain threshold. But pain in the legs can also be caused by osteoarthritis or due to excessive activities such as walking long distances.
For a suitable treatment for diabetes, it depends on blood sugar levels and response to treatment, so it is best to consult a doctor and perform a physical examination and also routine support to monitor the husband's blood sugar so that the appropriate drug can be given. In addition, do exercise regularly and consume foods high in fiber such as green vegetables and fruits and limit the intake of carbohydrate sources that enter the body.
