What is diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes – Your body does not make insulin. This is a problem because you need insulin to take the sugar (glucose) from the foods you eat and turn it into energy for your body. You need to take insulin every day to live.
 most people need a total of 0.5 - 0.8 units of insulin per kilogram of body weight each day. Roughly half this insulin is needed for food intake.

Type 2 diabetes – Your body does not make or use insulin well. You may need to take pills or insulin to help control your diabetes. Type 2 is the most common type of diabetes. there is also a third kind, gestational diabetes, which affects females during pregnancy.

Signs and symptoms :
The classic symptoms of untreated diabetes are unintended weight loss, polyuria (increased urination), polydipsia (increased thirst), and polyphagia (increased hunger). Symptoms may develop rapidly (weeks or months) in type 1 diabetes, while they usually develop much more slowly and maybe subtle or absent in type 2 diabetes.

Manage Your Diabetes for Lifestyle :
 Drink Sufficient Water :
 It is one of the most common home remedies for diabetes. Many studies say that drinking water helps in controlling blood sugar levels. In addition, adequate water intake will support the kidneys to prevent dehydration and excrete toxins through the urine. Regular intake of water re-hydrates the blood, which lowers your blood sugar level and reduces the risk of getting diabetes. However, opt for water and drinks that are calorie-free.

Drink Water With Copper :
  As you get to hear. It is believed that copper has many health benefits and one of them is to keep diabetes under control. Drinking copper treated water every day can help control symptoms. Put a cup of water in a copper vessel at night and drink water the next morning. When water is kept overnight in a pure copper vessel, small copper particles dissolve in the water, which is good for our bodies.

 Maintain Healthy Diet :
 It is imperative to control your carb intake. Since carbs are broken down into glucose that results in raising our blood sugar levels. Therefore, reducing carb intake can help with blood sugar control. 

  • Choose foods that are lower in calories, saturated fat, trans fat, sugar, and salt. 
  • Eat foods with more fiber, such as whole-grain cereals, breads, crackers, rice, or pasta.
  • Choose foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, bread and cereals, and low-fat or skim milk and cheese.
  • Drink water instead of juice and regular soda.
  • When eating a meal, fill half of your plate with fruits and vegetables, one quarter with a lean protein, such as beans, or chicken or turkey without the skin.

 Manage Stress Levels :
 Set a goal to be more active most days of the week. Start slowly by taking 10-minute walks, 3 times a day.
Twice a week, work to increase your muscle strength. Use stretch bands, do yoga, or try push-ups.
