Diabetes

Diabetes is a condition which comes about when our bodies are either unable to produce insulin or the insulin produced is no longer effective at regulating blood glucose levels.

When not controlled this can result in a wide range of health issues such as kidney failure, eye disease, foot ulceration and a higher risk of heart disease. The causes are many and varied but there are specific health complaints which can make us at greater risk than others.

Risk factors for diabetes:

  • Family history
  • Obesity
  • Age
  • Previous signs of impaired fasting glucose
  • Previous gestational diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High triglyceride reading
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Nutritional deficiency
