Living With Diabetes

If you are someone that suffers from diabetes, you should be very careful because this is a disease that often lives with you for the rest of your life and can have massive effects on your life. Many western medicine doctors will tell you that there is no cure for diabetes and that you are stuck with the illness for the rest of your life but that it can be controlled with medication. You will see that many people that suffer from diabetes take medication every single day of their lives to keep the diabetes control. However, traditional medicine practitioners and Ayurveda doctors have a different opinion and claim that diabetes can in fact be reversed and cured with the right kind of diet and the right things in your diet. In fact, with a well-balanced and controlled plant based diet, they claim the illness can go away completely. There was recently a documentary that was made called “What the Health” that tackled these exact questions and gave answers to those who were having these so called incurable illnesses.

Things you need out look out for

You may have noticed that there are people who have lost their legs due to diabetes and many people wonder what the connection between diabetes and legs are. The truth is, diabetes affects your ability to fight off infection which means that if you have a small injury on your foot, it can get bad very fast which is why you need to consult a foot clinic immediately if you get an injury on your leg. Anywhere else on your body, you are likely to wash and keep clean but your leg and your foot is constantly exposed to germs which is the main reason this happens with the leg.A podiatrist will be able to give you very strong antibiotics and medication to stop the infection and to prevent it from spreading if you consult him early and at the very beginning but if you have already allowed the infection to spread, there might be very little that he can do. This is why many of these cases end in amputation.If we get a wound on our hands, diabetes will cause the very same reaction but with our hands, we constantly wash them and therefore, there is a lot less of a chance for the infection to set in in the first place and this is something that does not happen with the foot. If you have diabetes, it is very important for you to take very good care of yourself because it is a lot more dangerous than you might know it to be.
