Diabetes: Get help

Diabetes sufferers  seem to live somewhat normal, healthy lives – with the inconvenience of having to manage their blood sugar levels. One unfortunate side effect of this is that some diabetics, especially younger people who feel the invincibility of youth, may feel that “it’s no big deal” and leave their diabetes untreated.

A 2012 study from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality found that 2.4 percent of respondents with diabetes did not use insulin, take oral medication, or follow a healthy diet. Essentially, these people are letting diabetes “take its course.” So what can they expect in the future with untreated diabetes?

What Can Happen

Left untreated,the life of diabetics can be reduced in a catastrophic manner. The most serious long-term effects are heart disease and possible kidney-failure. However, there can also be damage to your blood vessels and your eyes. Diabetic ketoacidosis, during which the body breaks down fat stores because it can no longer process sugar, is another serious health complication that can occur. And while mortality is inevitable for all of us, people who do not treat this, will most likely die as a result of one complication or another.

Untreated, it can result in both temporary and permanent blindness. There can also be nerve damage in the extremities – typically the hands and feet – which can lead to infection, gangrene and amputation. Along with heart disease and kidney failure, untreated diabetes can also lead to stroke and paralysis.

Where You Can Get Help

Interestingly, the AHRQ study found that very few respondents thought that it  was “no big deal,”while  did not treat it for economic reasons. They either lacked insurance or enough income to adhere to a diabetic diet, opting instead for cheap, sugary processed foods.

Reach out for help today if you are diabetic or help someone who is.

Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work?

I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal every day.
I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience
and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog
owners. Appreciate it!
