causes and Symptoms of Diabetes
Diabetes can be caused by a wide variety of factors, such as genetics, insulin resistance, or obesity. There are also many factors that can contribute to the development of diabetes, including poor diet, high blood pressure, alcohol abuse, and living a sedentary lifestyle. Generally, the most common symptoms that are associated with diabetes include abnormal hunger, increased thirst, frequent urination, extreme weight loss, fatigue, vision problems, and numbness. It's important to recognize and monitor these symptoms if they develop.
Treatment for Diabetes
The first step in treating diabetes is to get tested. This is achieved with a blood test. Once we know if you have type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes, Dr. Ranjan can create a custom care plan that is unique to you. Unfortunately, there is no cure for diabetes, which is why treatment is focused on disease management. The overall goal is to regulate and get blood sugar levels under control. The good news is with proper medical care, the disease is often very manageable. Common therapies often include medication, insulin injections, weight loss programs, and nutritional counseling.
