WHAT IS THIS? (Type II Diabetes Predisposition)
In manifest diabetes, elevated sugar levels destroy over time all of the body's organs, destroying parallel the vascular system that supplies them.
The factors that contribute to the development of type II diabetes are:
Elements of the eating disorder that can lead to diabetes II are individually or the combination of the following:
Appearance of type II diabetes is manifested after a pre-diabetic period, where the burning of sugar is efficient to a certain extent. The diagnosis of the pre-diabetic condition is of great importance, as a mild prophylactic adjustment to eating habits, weight regulation, and exercise, can be capable of preventing the onset of diabetes.
Predisposition testing is done on people with:
The body's ability to handle high glucose levels is checked to diagnose pre-diabetes.
We give to the examinee a "special" orange juice or lemonade with a specific glucose content and we measure the sugar and insulin levels every 30 minutes, for a period of 2 hours.
At the pre-diabetic level, the body is unable to consume sugar within 2 hours. This is caused by insufficient insulin production, or non-functional insulin production, which is separated from the insulin curve
In the graph, a patient at the pre-diabetic level gives a sugar curve, intermediate between the normal and the pathological diabetic patient
The test measures the average glucose value over a period of 8 – 12 weeks. It can be helpfully measured with the sugar curve
The analysis is superior to simple blood sugar measurement because it is not highly variable like blood sugar (sugar levels change every 10 minutes due to factors such as fatigue, stress, and food intake).
