Diabetes and Pre-diabetes

Manage Blood Sugar The Right Way With Naturopathy

Insulin levels determine how much of the blood glucose will be converted into glycogen. Managing insulin levels is critical to managing diabetes and pre-diabetes.

The Insulin Hormone Is Critical To Controlling Glucose

The pancreatic cells produce insulin whose principal function in the body is to convert glucose in the blood into glycogen. When a meal is ingested, the carbohydrates are broken down into simple sugars and further, during the absorption processes, the simple sugars and glucose are acted upon by the insulin and converted into a form that can then be used for energy by the cells. 

Another role that insulin plays is the storage of excess glucose in the liver for when the body might require it later. When the glucose levels fall and the body is in need of an energy rush, the stored glucose in the liver is then processed. Diabetes is of many kinds, but what essentially causes the condition is the blood sugar levels rising. 

What Are The Types Of Diabetes?

Depending upon the advent of the condition, the age group affected and the causal factors, diabetes is divided into the following types:

  • Type 1 Diabetes: An autoimmune condition wherein the immune system attacks the pancreatic cells that produce insulin. Since the hormone is no longer produced, blood sugar levels rise
  • Type 2 Diabetes: In this condition, the hormone insulin is produced but the cells of the body are immune to its action. Thus, the sugar levels in the blood rise as the glucose cannot be effectively converted into glycogen
  • Prediabetes: When the sugar levels in the blood are higher than the standard but not high enough to be a diagnosis for Type 2 Diabetes, the condition is known as prediabetes. If diet and lifestyle is managed at this stage, the condition can be controlled
  • Gestational Diabetes: Occurring during pregnancy, the condition is one wherein the placenta produces certain hormones whose function is insulin inhibition. Thus, the glucose levels build up in the blood

The levels to determine whether you are diabetic: 


Level of glucose


Random blood sugar test

200 mg/dL or higher


Fasting blood sugar test

100 to 125 mg/dL


Fasting blood sugar test

126 mg/dL or higher on two separate tests

Why Is Diabetes An Interplay Of Different Factors?

There is no cure to the condition but it can be managed to the extent that it does not progress further and cause other complications. While medicines are effective at managing the blood sugar levels and often even external insulin shots are taken by some people, the root cause of the condition is rarely addressed. Diet plays a significant role in controlling the progression of diabetes and thus, managing the food supplements that are part of the diet, paying attention to gut issues and focusing on limiting the stressful factors can greatly help the body recuperate. 

Controlling the levels is vital as rising sugar levels can lead to several other conditions such as kidney problems later in life, wounds that do not heal soon, gangrene that causes infection in the extremities and may need amputation and several other such effects.
