Diabetes is more common than we think it is. Diabetes is also more dangerous than we think it is. When someone hears the word diabetes, they just assume that the solution to this disease is merely avoiding sweets and anything that contains sugar. While that is true, it is only a fraction of the solution. Diabetes is not just getting an extremely high sugar level, diabetes is what follows after one’s sugar level shoots up when they take a high amount of sugar, or even a low amount – it all depends on the kind of diabetes one has.
Yes, there are different kinds or types of diabetes with different consequences, and just avoiding sweets is just too lackluster of a medical tip to digest when you have a world of health information available at the touch of a button. Most people who do not have diabetes or have not seen cases around them assume that diabetes is not that dangerous but the truth is that it can be fatal if appropriate measures are not taken. While diabetes is mostly genetic, there are cases of just acquiring it somehow. Whatever the case may be, if you have diabetes – whether it is type A or type B, what you need apart from you doctor and your medicines is an app called Glooko.
