Diabetes affects the way your body processes insulin, which is a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. If your body doesn’t properly use insulin, or if it doesn’t produce enough insulin, it raises the risk of serious health problems like heart disease, nerve damage, kidney failure, blindness, and more.
The different types of diabetes are Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and Gestational diabetes. Type 1 diabetes occurs when the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas stop working properly. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin over time and Gestational diabetes develops during pregnancy in women.
The best way to manage diabetes naturally is with lifestyle changes like eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, avoiding excess weight gain (especially around the waist), and keeping your stress levels low.
However, one can control or manage this chronic disease by taking insulin or other medications regularly.
