Can you guess the evil twin to hypertension? Pause… I’m waiting?

You may get a prize for getting it. Ok, I have to take my prize back, it’s Diabetes!

What is diabetes?

Don’t worry I won’t give you too much medical jargon’s. Diabetes in simple terms is a raised blood sugar level. There are two types of diabetes.

Type 1 and type 2.  In Type 1 diabetes the cells that produce insulin (the hormone that lowers sugar) are attacked by the bodies immune system. It occurs in children and young adults.

While in Type 2 diabetes, the pancreas is overwhelmed by the sugar load and stops producing or cannot produce enough insulin to deal with the sugar level of the body.

Now, sugar is great but when in excess and not broken down it does a lot of harm to the body. Over time it starts affecting the organs and the vessels within the body. If you remember, blood pressure is raised when arteries start becoming hard due to substances deposited on their walls.

A high sugar load in the body will ultimately lead to the deposition of these substances on the blood vessels and ultimately lead to increased blood pressure. So the vicious cycle begins, unfortunately, vessels supply blood to every part of the body.

If the sugar continues to be out of control and the pressure continues to rise, the blood vessels will continue to be damaged. Ultimately, leading to even more serious complications.

The question is can this downward spiral be stopped? Is diabetes reversible?

Please share your thoughts. We will continue next week
