Diabetes is classified into three types:
- Type I Diabetes: the body does not produce insulin. This often happen in teenagers or young adult. Around 10% of diabetes case is type I. Patients have to take insulin (injection or oral) for the rest of their life. They also have to maintain specific diet, usually low carbohydrate.
- Type II Diabetes: the body does not respond properly to insulin, or the body does not produce enough insulin. 90% of diabetes are Type II. Some people can cure themselves by losing weight followed by healthy diet and regular exercise. But some needs to take medication, usually insulin tablet. Peoples who have lots of belly fat are more likely to develop Type II diabetes. The risk increase as their age increased. Men with low testosterone level also have higher risk of type II Diabetes.
- Gestational Diabetes: This kind of diabetes is temporal and usually affect pregnant women. Sugar level on pregnant women can be so high that the insulin production cannot handle.
But eat healthy food is not enough. Regular exercise, especially cardio exercise will help so much.
If you feel some of diabetes symptoms, check your glucose level. If it's above normal, try to eat Myrmeleontidae insects. They're known to have insulin-like substances. Chinese traditional medicine have been using it for hundreds of years.
