People with diabetes are at greater risk of dying because of heart disease. About 58 per cent of people with type 2 diabetes die due to heart-related problems. High levels of glucose associated with diabetes can damage the blood vessels, causing blood pressure, joints pain and other problems.
According to the doctor, type 2 diabetes generally affects adults, but it is now being seen rapidly in young Indians too.
Due to diabetes, young people are suffering the risk of kidney damage and cardiovascular disease as well as the risk of complications that put life in jeopardy.
Padmashree Awarded Dr K.K. Agarwal said, “The major factor behind young people suffering from diabetes in the country is the problem of having junk food, obesity, and inactivity. Not taking care of yourself and not taking timely treatment and not following doctor’s advice increase this risk. Not following them becomes riskier for people because of which they have to go through deadly cases at a relatively young age. ”
He said that there is a general belief among people that type 2 diabetics do not need insulin, so it seems that this is not a terrible situation. However, this is wrong to think. In this situation, urgent treatment and management are needed. The point to note is that there are no symptoms in young people with type 2 diabetes. If some are visible, they can usually be mild, and in most cases gradually develops, which involves excessive thirst and frequent urination.
In an interview, Dr Agarwal said, “If elder people of the house present an example of a good lifestyle, it will be inspirational for the youth also. Such changes can help a young person to lose weight and eat healthily. This can help find better options for drinking, which reduces the possibility of developing type-2 diabetes. It is true for those whose family has already had diabetes problems.
Here are some of the suggestions:
Choose healthy foods instead of junk food. Take a walk at high speed every day. Talk about your health and your risk of diabetes and heart disease with your family. If you smoke, take the initiative to leave it. Change lifestyle for yourself, for your family and for future generations to reduce the risk of diabetes and its complications.
