We all know of someone or the other who suffers from Diabetes – it could be
a family member, a friend or an acquaintance. In simple words, Diabetes is
a condition when the body is either unable to make insulin (Type 1) or
utilize it adequately (Type 2). In such a situation, there is too much of
glucose in the blood or hyperglycemia. Hyperglycemia affects the kidneys,
eyes, skin, nerves, the reproductive system & the heart.
Experts in the field, doctors & dieticians can advise people on the
type of diet to follow & regular exercise you need to undertake in case
you are obese or overweight. The risk of diabetes increases with age,
especially after the age of 45 years; talk to your healthcare professional
in case diabetes run in your family. Women diagnosed with Polycystic
Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) are at an increased risk of developing diabetes.
Lifestyle choices such as alcohol & tobacco consumption too contributes
to the risk of diabetes.

is effectively managing diabetes. Some of the common signs and symptoms of
diabetes include dry & itchy skin on the hands & feet, sudden,
unexplained weight loss, excessive thirst, frequent urination, blurry
vision, ulcers or wounds that take a long time to heal & recurrent
skin, gum, bladder or vaginal yeast infections.
Including a lot of green leafy vegetables in your diet such as spinach,
cabbage and broccoli along with fibre-rich foods such as berries, nuts,
whole foods & seeds can help maintain your blood sugar levels. These
foods ensure that you do not feel hungry often, reduce the chances of your
blood glucose shooting up after a meal, helps you manage your weight &

shellfish rich in Omega-3, proteins & vitamins helps tackle diabetic
neuropathy and protects the heart from damage. Moderation is key when it
comes to using artificial sweeteners as a part of your diet.
Exercising during diabetes helps you win half the battle over diabetes. You
can start now if you have not been active in the past. People usually start
with brisk-walking as one of the first steps to manage & control their
diabetes. However, if you are unsure of which exercise to do to stay fit,
it is advisable that you consult your healthcare professional & seek
You can understand how well you are managing diabetes if you regularly
check your blood glucose levels. One can diagnose hypoglycemia and
immediately take corrective steps to manage it.
Major visual problems such as blindness can be tackled early on in the
diabetes battle if one regularly schedules an annual eye check-up.
Complications relating to the eye can be easily detected during these
check-ups such as cataract, glaucoma or retinopathy, enabling you to
address & treat them on time.
Last but not the least, looking after your feet during diabetes is very
important. Inspecting your foot once daily, trimming your nails, wearing
the right kind of footwear & never walking barefoot are some important
steps that can help you triumph over diabetes. Speak to your doctor or
podiatrist about ulcers, corns or calluses on your feet, do not attempt to
self-medicate or cut them out yourself.
