Best Diabetes doctor. Best Kidney specialist. WHAT IS DIABETES? Its full name is Diabetes Mellitus, but it’s generally called Diabetes. It is a medical term for a group of chronic diseases in which the body fails to complete the conversion of certain foods into energy. Normally, during digestion, the body changes sugar, starch, and other foods into a form of sugar called glucose. The blood carries this glucose to the body’s cells, where, with the help of insulin (a hormone produced in the pancreas), it changes into quick energy for immediate use or storage for future needs. This process of turning food into energy is crucial, because the body depends on energy for everything from thinking to physical activity. In Diabetes, the food is turned into glucose readily enough but cannot enter the body’s cells as lack of insulin production or its effect on the cells in the body. The most common forms of Diabetes are Type I and Type II. In Type I, the person’s pancreas does not produce enough insulin so the supply of glucose can be used. As a result, very high blood sugar and other metabolic abnormalities occur. In the absence of insulin, the metabolic abnormality is quite severe. As a result, these people are picked up quite early because of their symptoms. In Type II, the pancreas produces enough insulin, but the body’s cells can’t use it properly. This means that the unused glucose once again causes high blood sugars. Prevalence of Diabetes in The United States There are about 18 million people with Diabetes in the United States; half of them are still not diagnosed. About 90-95% of these people have Type II Diabetes. Diabetes and its complications are the sixth leading cause of death in the United States, outranked by heart disease and cancer. Diabetes is a major cause of blindness in adults, and causes diabetics to suffer heart attacks twice as often as non-diabetics. The life expectancy of those with some form of Diabetes is one/third shorter than the general population. The most important thing is to recognize Diabetes early so the treatment can be started before the disease has had a chance to damage your health.
PCOD, PCOS Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is a common complex metabolic disorderin young females. It is an insulin resistant state that is also responsible for type II diabetes. It is going to be seen more often and often poorly treated by doctors, because it encompasses dermatologic, gynecological, endocrine and psychological problem. Only a physician who can look at it holistically can completely treat PCOD properly. In this condition a garland pattern of cysts develop in the ovary and start producing abnormal hormones. Excessive hair growth on face, chin, lips and other parts of the body is very common. As a result patients end up in waxing parlors and laser clinics. This can be devastating for a young female. All these treatment are not going to be successful, unless the hormonal imbalance is resolved in PCOD. While at the same time male pattern baldness and thinning of hair is very common. Acne is another traumatic experience and sometimes may be very severe. Again they will see a number of dermatologists for acne, but proper treatment of the hormonal imbalance will give very gratifying results. There is also associated black pigmentation on the face, neck, arm pit and other parts of the body. One of the common problems is central obesity associated with menstrual abnormalities in young girls and women. As time goes on this leads to infertility and patients end up in fertility clinics for IPF ( In Vitro fertilization). But only when the metabolic derangement is resolved, fertility is assured even without the expensive procedure of IVF. The irregular bleeding can be very embarrassing and may lead to anxiety and depression. Emotional distress ranging from anxiety to depression is very common. Hence in the treatment of PCOS an experienced physician in this area is crucial for the success of medical treatment. Eventually patients will go on to develop type II diabetes.

Type II diabetes is a complex metabolic disorder, where weight gain around the belly button, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high blood sugar coexists in the same patient. Hence the term, “Terrible Quartet”. It is a different disease in men and women. In men it is associated with male menopause or Andropause. There is male pattern baldness, weight gain, muscle wasting, sexual dysfunction and mental irritability and anger. In female it causes Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome PCOD. This is associated with increase hair growth all over the body, pimples (Acne), obesity, male facial changes, irregular menstrual cycle and infertility. This is rapidly growing in young girls, specially in counties like Indian Subcontinent and Chine. Dr Narendra K Gupta, best diabetes doctor, Gurgaon
Diabetes is of two types. In type I diabetes, there is total absence of Insulin and hence the blood sugar derangement, quite extreme. It forms 3-5% of Diabetic cases. Whereas, type II diabetes is much more common and rapidly increasing. We have a tendency to think, it is a disease of blood sugar. It is an “insulin resistant” state and even though insulin is produced, it is not enough to control the blood sugar. This is a slowly progressive disease and it takes 12-18 years for one to become diabetic. It is a vascular disease that is a “Silent Killer” and is the most common cause of blindness, heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and amputation.

So at the age of 40 one becomes like 50 and at 50 like 65. But the good news today is that every complication of diabetes are reversible, if treated appropriately. People can aspire to not only have a good quality of life but, live even longer than those who do not have diabetes. Best diabetes doctor in Gurgaon. Best Diabetes doctor in Delhi.
