Now I know the majority of you will like to know the exact defective hormone responsible for diabetes and I will be explaining not in detail. After food intake and it has been digested, it is then converted to either; Protein, Carbohydrates, OR Fats. But the main culprit which affects blood sugar is the Carbohydrate. When we consume carbohydrates, it is broken down into the form of energy which the body recognizes and put into use known as "Glucose". Glucose is then transferred into the blood where the cell utilizes it as energy.  But for this transfer to take place, the hormone is needed and the organ responsible for producing this hormone is known as Pancreas.

When a human is being diagnosed with or develops Diabetes, the process is kinda truncated, and when this hormone becomes defective or production of this hormone becomes insufficient, it leads to diabetes. And this is so not a palatable condition for anyone to live with, so I will be sharing with you all how to prevent diabetes complications.

Alcohol has the ability to cause diabetic patients high and low blood sugar, though that snow solely dependant on the amount of alcohol consumption or if you take alcohol together with your meal. If you must drink, then do so in moderation, but this should not be used as a yardstick to take in alcohol on an empty stomach, no matter how small the quantity is, the effect is adversely on you.

Women of all ages and men above 65 years of age who are diabetic should not consume more than one alcohol drink a day, and men 65 and younger should stick to two drinks a day. For all diabetic patients who use insulin, do note to self that along the line, alcohol intake no matter how small will lead to low blood sugar.

>> Quit Smoking

Should you crave a healthier future, you must; take your medications as directed and prescribed by your doctor, monitor your blood sugar levels, follow your doctor's instructions for managing your blood sugar levels and always refer to your diabetes team when you need help.
