Guidelines for Diabetes

Guidelines for Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which the body produces no insulin hormone, or the body does not consider the insulin it produces. The body must have and use insulin to survive. Diabetes is a chronic and life-threatening disease if not treated properly. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) has developed national guidelines for the treatment of diabetes.


ADA guidelines recommend a diagnosis of diabetes be taken depending on the symptoms, a greater than 200 fasting plu 126, a random glucose sugar and a test result of hemoglobin A1c (diabetes) more than 6 per cent.


ADA recommendations short and quick-produced insulin to insulin-dependent diabetics. Those who are not insulin dependent can take oral medications that help to use insulin better body.


ADA guidelines recommend maintaining a healthy weight with a lot of fruit and non-starch vegetables (colored dark), fish, lean meat, non-fat dairy products, whole grains, beans and water. The ADA says that no food is “closed” as long as it is part of a balanced diet.


ADA guidelines recommend the daily exercise to make the body more sensitive to insulin. Exercise uses more glucose, reduced the quantity of insulin or oral drugs, maintains a healthy weight, lowers blood pressure, strengthens the bones stronger and helps to manage stress.


Poorly controlled diabetes can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, hypertension, eye, nerve damage, wound healing sickness, frequent hospitalizations, coma and death.
