Is your diabetes diagnosis depressing you? Here are eight ways you fight diabetes! (Rank Princess)

We shall start off with a preliminary discussion of diabetes before moving on to different methods of tackling diabetes.

Diabetes can be broadly classified as Type 1 and Type 2. Doctors often refer to diabetes as diabetes mellitus. This is caused by inadequate production of insulin within the human body, which in turn leads to a lot of food or rather sugar not being burned down properly in the body. This excess sugar in the bloodstream often leads to an excessive thirst as well as urination.

Let’s have a look at Type 1 Diabetes and what you should do about it.

Type 1 Diabetes is often referred to as insulin-dependent diabetes. This is directly caused by a lack of insulin production within the body. There has been a rise of 23% in instances of Type 1 Diabetes over the past few years.

So how should you go about battling Type 1 diabetes? Let’s have a look.

  1. Since this is largely caused by too much sugar in the blood, meals must be balanced, and there has to be a restriction on the intake of sugar.
  2. Regular insulin injections are a must.
  3. The body needs to be able to burn the sugar since that’s the best way to reduce blood sugar levels. So a healthy exercise regimen is strongly recommended.
  4. Keep an eye out for any sudden spikes in blood sugar levels so that you can quickly tackle them and take care of yourself accordingly.

The emotional blow of having been diagnosed with diabetes can leave us physically challenged. What should you do after the diagnoses and what is the best way moving forward, to tackle this condition?

Along with the above-mentioned points, we go on to enumerate what we consider important emotional responses to this disease.

  1. Don’t dig yourself into a hole. Diabetes often throws us into despair and depression and makes us feel the need to dig ourselves into our little corners. But sharing helps. Try to form a support group of people who share your condition and share with your near and dear ones since that is one of the best ways to tackle your mental condition.
  2. Set goals for yourself that you can achieve: A lot of people suffer from their unrealistic ambitions. Don’t set goals that are too high and always learn how to manage your expectations, since that will ensure a better shot at success.
  3. Volunteer: Get involved with your local community and try to make the best of opportunities as and when they present themselves. Try and raise awareness and keep yourself occupied as best as you can.
  4. Don’t hesitate to ask for help: A lot of people find it to be a sign of weakness to ask for help, but let us assure you that nothing can be farther from the truth. Seek out help whenever you need it and always remember that counselling is often the best cure for fighting depression.

These are a few ways to help you in the fight against diabetes. Reach out to us for help, and it will always be given. The key point to remember when battling any illness is that you must educate yourself about the disease and you must always approach everything with a calm and clear perspective of where you stand and what you want to achieve.

Diabetes means that there will be certain changes, but your ability to meet those changes and take them in your stride is what defines you. The disease doesn’t.
