2023-01-14 Use Labii As Diabetes Tracker


What is diabetes

Diabetes is a chronic medical condition in which the body is unable to properly regulate blood sugar (glucose) levels. This occurs because the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin, or the body's cells are resistant to the effects of insulin. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes, also known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is caused by an autoimmune destruction of the pancreas' insulin-producing cells. Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes or non-insulin dependent diabetes, occurs when the body becomes resistant to the effects of insulin and/or the pancreas is unable to produce enough insulin to meet the body's needs. Type 2 diabetes is more common and is often associated with obesity and a sedentary lifestyle.

Why is it important to manage the glucose level

Proper management of blood sugar levels is important for individuals with diabetes because high blood sugar can lead to a number of serious complications over time. Some of these complications include:

  • Cardiovascular disease: High blood sugar levels can damage blood vessels and lead to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular problems.

  • Nerve damage: Diabetes can cause damage to the nerves in the body, leading to numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet.

  • Kidney damage: High blood sugar levels can damage the kidneys and lead to kidney failure.

  • Eye damage: Diabetes can cause damage to the blood vessels in the eyes, leading to blindness.

  • Foot damage: Diabetes can cause damage to the feet, leading to problems with sensation, healing, and an increased risk of amputation.

  • Skin and oral health problems

Managing glucose levels can help to prevent or delay the onset of these complications, and it is important for diabetes patients to monitor their glucose levels regularly, eat a healthy diet, and engage in regular physical activity. They may also need to take medication to help control their blood sugar levels.

Methods to track the glucose level

There are several methods to track glucose levels for individuals with diabetes:

  • Blood glucose meters: These are small handheld devices that allow individuals to measure their blood sugar levels by pricking their finger and placing a drop of blood on a test strip. The meter will then display the blood sugar level.

  • Continuous glucose monitors (CGM): These devices are worn under the skin and continuously measure glucose levels throughout the day and night. They can provide real-time glucose readings and alert the user if their glucose levels are too high or too low.

  • Insulin pumps: These devices can be worn on the body and are used to deliver insulin to the body. They are often used in conjunction with CGMs to help control blood sugar levels.

  • A1C test: This test measures the average blood sugar level over the past 2-3 months. It is done in a lab or by a healthcare professional, is a good indicator of how well diabetes is being managed over time.

  • Carb counting: This is a method of tracking the amount of carbohydrates in the food you eat and adjusting insulin doses accordingly.

It's important to work with a healthcare professional to determine the best method for tracking blood sugar levels and to develop an individualized plan for managing diabetes.
