Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when our body’s blood sugar level is above average. This condition is not life-threatening if appropriately managed. However, diabetes can lead to high blood pressure and other serious diseases that make it more life-threatening. First and foremost, let us understand what diabetes is. Our body’s primary source of energy is glucose. This glucose is absorbed by our cells to be used as energy with the help of insulin. The human pancreas organ produces a hormone called insulin. When our pancreas cannot produce enough insulin, it results in glucose being stranded in our blood and not reaching the body cells. When this happens, blood sugar increases above normal. It is when a person develops a condition called diabetes. Diabetes is a severe case though manageable. Patients with existing diabetes will eventually develop heart problems, blood circulation, and high blood pressure. These health problems occur when there is a high volume of sugar in our blood, the blood vessel walls will stiffen, which causes the pressure to increase. It then will lead to high blood pressure.

Types Of Diabetes

Diabetes is classified into three types: type, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes

It is commonly diagnosed in children and adults. Patients with type 1 diabetes need to take insulin every day to stay alive because their bodies make insulin anymore.

Type 2 Diabetes

It is the most common type that occurs most often in middle-aged and older people. Usually, 45 years old and above have a higher risk. It appears when your body is unresponsive to insulin. They are not converted to energy when we eat food with carbohydrates and glucose.

Gestational Diabetes

It is the type of diabetes that usually develops during the gestation period of pregnant women, but their high glucose level comes back to normal after giving birth. However, when you get this type of diabetes, you become at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is manageable, but it is a severe complex condition that can affect the whole body. An unhealthy glucose level can develop other health problems, short term or long term, which causes deadly complications. Health problems that develop in Diabetic people:

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney problems
  • Eye problems
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Dental problems
  • Nerve damage
  • Foot problems

Diabetes is the cause of blindness, limb amputation, kidney failure, heart disease, stroke, even depression, and mental health problems. Diabetes can occur to anyone. It does not discriminate. However, early detection can save lives and can reduce the risk of having severe diabetes-related complications.

Final Words

Once you have diabetes, it requires daily care and management. For example, your diet is vital. A diabetic person must watch what food he eats. Whatever type of diabetes a person has, the potential complications are the same. When you have a history of diabetes, then you must talk to your doctor for a check-up. It is better that you know early on to manage and reduce your risk for related health complications.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
