What Is Diabetes? | 2 Minute Guide | Diabetes UK

Share this:

3.8 million people have been diagnosed with diabetes in the UK, but a lot of people still don’t know what diabetes is.

Diabetes is a serious, lifelong condition where your blood glucose level is too high.

There are two main types, Type 1 and Type 2. They’re different conditions, but they’re both serious. There are some other rarer types of diabetes too.

    My daughter drinks lots of water and urinates with the same rate, there are no other symptoms to show if those have anything to do with diabetes. This is a good information that I have gone through Diabets.Care She is 2 years 9 months, hale and healthy, have not done any blood test. But I am not certain if one can get diabetes at such a tender age. Please I will like to know more on that

    Sadly, there is a huge industry based around treatments and medication. Not really in their best interests to find a cure.

    Didn't mention depression which is high amongst sufferers. Otherwise brilliant overview – thank you!

    No one is sugar patient,….why because excess sugar and excess salt from blood goes out through urine…without harming the body.

    Hence, who ever has diabetics, should never utter the word sugar.

    Sugar (sucrose) is the chemical combination of glucose, fructose and galactose.

    You are measuring Blood glucose. Hence dont call it sugar.

    Glucose is part of sugar and has got specific purpose in metabolism.

    If glucose goes out through urine,…. you are draining out glycogen and hence,…. you will feel excess weakness.

    Your blood glucose ( ~sugar~ ) can go upto 200. Nothing will happen.

    If the blood glucose shoots up above 200 the excess glucose above 200 will go out through urine.

    ➡️ What goes out through urine is GLYCOGEN (r) GLYCOGEN.

    ==============

    If you pollute your blood through chemical (life long) medication, you will remain diabetic through out your life.

    Diabetics is only a medical scam.
    Pharma business.

    If the blood glucose shoots up above 200 the excess glucose above 200 will go out through urine.

    ➡️ What goes out through urine is GLYCOGEN (r) GLYCOGEN.

    Even then you should not take medication to control it. Let it go out.

    Never worry about blood GLUCOSE level.
    Let it remain high.

    ➡️ If your urine tastes sweety, it means…. glycogen goes out through urine.

    Only solution is drink your own urine, by which the proteen albumin, minerals, vitamins and fat from urine enter back to body.

    Eat enough fruits, raw vegetables, sugar cane juice and expose the body to sun rays. Do pranayama.

    You make consume sweets, jaggery (goood).

    But eat less starchy food (rice & wheat) which contains high amount of glucose.

    ➡️ If you try to control glucose through medication,…glycogen gets accumulated in
    Liver and thus you will become a fatty liver patient.

    Because of your ignorance you create fatty liver. And hence fatty liver is a life style disease.

    In addition attack, stroke, pnemonia, blood cancer etc are life style disease.

    BP & Sugar & Viral fever is not a disease.

    ➡️ 50 years back, no one ever took medicine for the above disease.

    My (72 yrs) sole intention is to save humanity from medical trajedy.

    Diabetics is not a disease.

    Diabetics is just a temperory phenomena.

    Diabetic has no relationship with sugar.

    60 years back no one ever took diabetic medication. And there was no diabetic related complications.

    Blood glucose is not blood sugar.

    What you measure in blood is the presence of glucose in glycogen.

    What ever you eat, the essence of which directly reaches liver through portal vein.

    Once reaches the liver, glucose from food gets seperated.

    Glucose promotes metabolism. So also glucose is water soluble.

    As such, in the liver, glucose is immdly converted as glycogen

    Liver drains out the glycogen into blood.

    The process of metabolism, converts glycogen into energy.

    Insulin from pancreas promotes metabolism.

    Blood glucose reduction is not diabetic treatment.

    The key is to protect people from health hazards such as diabetes, heart attack, stroke, brain 🧠 annurysim & obisity. We should have a health plan using a card system for different stages of a person's health. For example each individual's such as borderline, diabetics & stroke victims should have a dietary plan to follow on a weekly basis. Because there is nothing more important than good health. If the comply with the dietary plan their should be rewards & if not, consequences. The plan should also include 3 days a week exercise.

    One thing that really frustrates me about the subject of Diabetes is, how many people out there aren't aware of, & don't even believe, either. That there is such a thing as TYPE 1.5 also. 1.5 is what my maternal grandmother had years ago before she died in 1991 at 72 yrs old. I've called the Diabetes Association & told them about my grandma having this & that I'd certainly appreciate it if they would start advertising this Type of Diabetes also. So far, no luck. Just like those who have 1 or 2 alone, Type 1.5 is just as dangerous too if & when it isn't found or treated, either.

    For those who aren't aware of what Type 1.5 is, The most straightforward description I can give is this. You have just as much symptoms of Type 1 as you do Type 2 Diabetes. You can wake up extremely low & fall asleep with it dangerously high. It reminds me of myself & my grandma whom when we both started in our early years having thyroid problems. We would go from hyper one week & be skinny like a rake to hypo the following week & have actually gained 50 or more pounds without ever eating differently, more or less, changing exercise routines, etc… Our metabolism in our bodies changed that much & that quickly too. No joke, all fact.

    When my grandma got older & started having diabetes symptoms, they had a hard time determining if she was 1 or 2 & that's because she had both. She had just as much of Type 1's symptoms as she did Type 2's symptoms. She was 50% of each. Back then, they didn't know much about how to treat someone with both where I live. So, grandma ended up with Gangrene, amongst many other issues too as a result of untreated thyroid problems, etc…

    I really would appreciate it if doctors out there would make videos like this one about people like my late grandma who had Type 1.5 Diabetes. It really needs to be advertised & put out there because, there could be many people out there who are unaware that they are like my grandma was & a friend of mine who is now in her 50s with it also. More people need to become aware of this issue too, if we want all people to be treated fairly, & for their bodies to be able to fight & be given a fair chance at life too. So please. Would you mind doing a video that explains to all people possible that my grandma's problem was & is a real problem & not some story that I made up as may people think? Too many people even medical professionals don't believe that this problem exists. Thank you very much for your time & help in this matter. It's greatly appreciated by us all. Take care.
