Insulin pumps can help you avoid shotsSource: Stephanie Hicks
Insulin Pumps Provide More Precise Control of DiabetesInsulin is a powerful hormone. Anyone taking it must be very careful to avoid “over-medicating” which can result in seriously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). Using an insulin pump is a much more precise method of administering the medication.

Over 8 million African Americans have diabetes and one third of them don’t know they have the disease. In addition, twenty five percent of African Americans between the ages of 65 – 74 have diabetes and one in four African American women, over the age of 55, have been diagnosed with the disease

In either event, when insulin is required to treat diabetes, it used to mean needles, syringes and shots. Today, an insulin pump for diabetics can significantly reduce the pain of living with diabetes and make it more convenient to eat and drink without having to pull out a needle every time.


Pre-diabetes is a condition that occurs when a person’s blood glucose levels is higher than normal but not high enough for a diagnosis of type II diabetes. Pre-diabetes can cause damage to the heart and circulatory system, but pre-diabetes can often be controlled by controlling blood glucose levels. By controlling pre-diabetes you can often prevent or delay the onset of Type II diabetes.

With Type II diabetes there is an over abundance of insulin floating around and attached to receptors. For some reason the receptor is not sensitive to the insulin in order to allow sugars to be taken into the cells properly. This chronic elevated sugar state leads eventually to severe heart, kidney, peripheral nerve, and eye disease.

Is it possible to have hypoglycemia without diabetes? The answer is yes, and it’s important to know why. As more and more cases of diabetes pop up, people are trying to diagnose the early warning symptoms of the disease. Just to get the terms straight, hypoglycemia is a state of low blood sugar or glucose, due to an overproduction of insulin or from a poor diet. Hyperglycemia is a state of high blood sugar usually due to low levels of insulin. Diabetes is the persistent medical condition of a body’s underproduction of insulin, or of a cell’s inability to process the insulin, either of which leads to high levels of blood sugar and dangerous conditions within the body, even death. Hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are often associated with diabetes because all three conditions have to do with insulin and improper levels of blood sugar. The real difference between the three is that diabetes is a persistent medical condition, whereas hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are states within the body that come and go.

Type I or juvenile-onset diabetes usually strikes people under the age of 20, but can strike at any age. Five to ten percent of African Americans who are diagnosed with diabetes are diagnosed with this type of the disease. Type I diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the body produces little or no insulin and this type of diabetes must be treated with daily insulin injections.

Exercise is one key to controlling diabetes. Source:
Exercise and WaterEating the right foods in the right portion size are essential to good diabetes management. Another key to managing your diabetes is getting exercise and drinking enough water. These are two keys to keeping your glucose level under control. Walking ten minutes after eating is an excellent way to bring your glucose level down in a hurry. Walking stairs is even better. Adding extra bottles of water to your drinking habit will also assist in keeping your glucose levels down. When you add these activities to your diet along with portion control you can generally eat anything you want even peanuts, honey or dates.
