Diabetology

Diabetes is a disorder in which the blood sugar (glucose) level becomes extremely high because of a lack or inefficiency of the hormone Insulin, which is secreted by the pancreatic beta-cells and prevents glucose from entering the cells. When blood sugar levels surpass a particular threshold (>180 mg%), extra sugar begins to pass into the urine (glucosuria).

Insulin saves child. Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus is another name. It can happen at any age, but usually before 10 years old. Type1 diabetes affects 5% of diabetics.

Itching all over the body (especially private regions), exhaustion, decreased vision/frequent change of glasses, increased appetite & thirst, increased urine, tingling and numbness in hands or feet, sexual issues (impotence), and delayed/non-healing wounds are common symptoms. It usually happens after 40, however fat and unhealthy youngsters and teenagers might develop it.

Gestational Diabetes: Obese or genetically predisposed women can develop diabetes briefly during pregnancy. In 30–50% of individuals, this kind of diabetes persists after delivery. All pregnant diabetics must receive insulin, the only safe agent. Oral pills can treat postpartum diabetes.

What takes place in a patient with Diabetes?

Food is digested in the stomach and small intestines, turned into glucose, and absorbed into the circulation. Insulin helps it enter millions of cells from blood. After eating, the pancreas releases insulin automatically. Cells burn glucose, a fuel, to provide energy for our body.

Insulin insufficiency or inefficiency causes diabetes. Insulin moves blood glucose into cells (for the release of energy). With diabetes, glucose can’t enter cells and rises in blood (Hyperglycaemia). Diabetics are usually weary because their cells can’t create energy.

    How to deal with Diabetes

    Consume less salt – Consuming excessive amounts of salt can raise your blood pressure, which raises your risk of heart disease and stroke. Additionally, you are already more susceptible to all of these diseases if you have diabetes.

    Intake of Carbohydrates – Your blood sugar levels rise as a result of your body converting the carbohydrates you eat into glucose. Hence, consuming fewer carbohydrates can help with blood sugar regulation.

    Fibre Content – Consuming a lot of fibre can help with blood sugar control. In this regard, soluble dietary fibre seems to be superior to insoluble fibre.

    Stress – You may be able to control your blood sugar levels by controlling your stress levels through exercise or relaxation techniques like yoga.

    Hydration – Hydration helps lower blood sugar levels and the risk of developing diabetes. Avoid beverages with added sugar and opt instead for water and zero-calorie liquids.

    I had the privilege of being under the care of Dr. Nirmala at Green City Hospital during my wife's pregnancy, and I must say that our experience with her was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Nirmala is undoubtedly one of the finest gynecologists we have ever come across. Despite facing several complications during the course of my wife's pregnancy, Dr. Nirmala's expertise and dedication ensured that the journey was remarkably smooth. We were overjoyed to have a full-term, normal delivery thanks to her expert guidance and care. One aspect that truly sets Dr. Nirmala apart is her meticulous approach to patient care. During each of our visits, she conducted ultrasound scans to maintain detailed records of the pregnancy's progress. This is in stark contrast to what we've observed in other hospitals, where scans are often limited to specific trimesters. Dr. Nirmala's commitment to tracking every detail of the pregnancy was a source of great reassurance for us. What truly distinguishes Dr. Nirmala is her unwavering patience and attentiveness. She takes the time to listen to her patients, addressing all their concerns and questions. Her ability to make you feel heard and valued is truly remarkable. The staff at Green City Hospital, particularly the nursing team, deserves commendation as well. They treated us like family and were always ready to assist, often going above and beyond their call of duty. Their support played a vital role in ensuring a positive outcome, and we are immensely grateful for their assistance. The culmination of this wonderful journey was the birth of our healthy baby boy through normal delivery. This achievement is a testament to Dr. Nirmala's skill and the dedication of the hospital staff. We are filled with gratitude for all the help and support provided by Dr. Nirmala and her team. In a time when medical expenses can be a significant burden, we are thankful to have found a healthcare professional like Dr. Nirmala, who puts her patients' well-being before financial gains. Her commitment to affordable healthcare is a boon for families like ours. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Nirmala for her invaluable contributions to our journey to parenthood. Her dedication, expertise, and compassionate care have left an indelible mark on our hearts. We wish her all the success in her continued mission to serve the community and hope that more doctors can follow her example. Thank you, Dr. Nirmala, for everything you've done for us.
