Diabetes

A world free of diabetes isn’t our fantasy, its our promise.

What Is Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus (DM), commonly known as just diabetes, is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by a high blood sugar level over a prolonged period. Diabetes mellitus type 1 results when the pancreas no longer produces significant amounts of the hormone insulin, usually owing to the autoimmune destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas. Diabetes mellitus type 2, in contrast, is now thought to result from autoimmune attacks on the pancreas and/or insulin resistance. The pancreas of a person with type 2 diabetes may be producing normal or even abnormally large amounts of insulin. Other forms of diabetes mellitus may represent some combination of insufficient insulin production and insulin resistance. Some degree of insulin resistance may also be present in a person with type 1 diabetes.

Diabetes Management

The main goal of diabetes management and control is, as far as possible, to restore carbohydrate metabolism to a normal state. To achieve this goal, individuals with an absolute deficiency of insulin require insulin replacement therapy. Insulin resistance, in contrast, can be corrected by dietary modifications and exercise. Other goals of diabetes management are to prevent or treat the many complications that can result from the disease itself and from its treatment.

Because high blood sugar caused by poorly controlled diabetes can lead to a plethora of immediate and long-term complications, it is critical to maintain blood sugars as close to normal as possible, and a diet that produces more controllable blood sugar spikes is an important factor in producing normal blood sugars. For overweight and obese people with diabetes, the most important aspect of any diet is that it results in loss of body fat. Losing body fat has been proven to improve blood glucose control and lower insulin levels.

Mineral Deficiency

People with uncontrolled hyperglycemia, especially those on chronic diuretic therapy, are prone to develop deficiencies in some minerals, notably potassium, magnesium, and zinc. Deficiencies of certain minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and possibly zinc and chromium may predispose one to carbohydrate intolerance.

The need for potassium or magnesium replacement is easily accepted because the effects of overt potassium or magnesium deficiency, especially on the cardiovascular system and skeletal muscles, are profound and readily detectable. The deficiency state of potassium and magnesium is relatively easy to detect based on low serum levels.

The consequences of zinc and chromium deficiency are slow to emerge, and the need for supplementation is more difficult to ascertain. Several small studies have found that chromium supplementation improves glucose intolerance, gestational diabetes, and corticosteroid-induced diabetes

Recent studies have shown that calcium and vitamin D are not only required for skeletal health but also may have a role in immune modulation and pancreatic insulin secretion and action.

Vanadium has a significant effect on glucose metabolism. New organo-vanadium compounds with higher potency and less toxicity are under investigation as a potential treatment of diabetes.

Selenium is an important component of selenoproteins, which are implicated in modulating oxidative stress and regulating thyroid hormone activity.

Vitamin A is essential for normal vision and for an effective functioning of the immune system. A number of carotenoids, especially beta-carotenoids, are considered to be pro-vitamins because of their ability to convert to vitamin A in the liver. Retinoids derive from natural vitamin A products and have some properties similar to carotenoids. Deficiency results in a macrocytic anemia and elevated levels of homocysteine. The combination of folic acid, pyridoxine hydrochloride, and cyanocobalamin may have protective effects against age-related macular degeneration.

Deficiency of Folates and B vitamins result in a macrocytic anaemia and elevated levels of homocysteine. Plasma homocysteine concentration in type 2 diabetes correlates with age, creatinine, folate, and vitamin B12. 

The exact percentage of calories targeted from the three main macronutrients; carbohydrate, protein and fat, should be individualized. There is no "one right mix" that is right for everyone. Blood Glucose, weight/lipids, personal preference, cultural practices, and the patient's desires and abilities should all be considered.
