Diabetes-related medical costs are close to $327 billion every year, which are twice as expensive as those of non-diabetics.
Diabetes is quickly approaching the position of a major pandemic in India, with over 62 million diabetics presently diagnosed. By 2000, India seemed to have the highest number of patients with diabetes mellitus (31.7 million), trailed by China (20.8 million) and the United States (17.7 million) in second and third place, correspondingly. According to Wild et al., the worldwide prevalence of diabetes is expected to double from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million in 2030, with India experiencing a substantial increase. Diabetes mellitus is expected to impact up to 79.4 million people in India by 2030, with China (42.3 million) and the United States (30.3 million) seeing large surges in those afflicted. In terms of the possible impact that diabetes may place on the country, India today faces an uncertain future. Many factors influence illness frequency across a country, and identifying those causes is crucial to promote change when confronted with health concerns.
The ninth edition of the IDF Diabetes Atlas has forecasts that keep India in second place until 2045. And the figures are staggering: nearly 134 million Indians will develop diabetes in the next 25 years. India leads a group of Southeast Asian countries, including Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Mauritius. However, Bangladesh, which ranks second among the top five diabetic countries (20-79 years), has only 8.4 million diabetics.
The following are the initial indications and symptoms of diabetic hypoglycemia:
· Fast heartbeat
· Inability to concentrate
· Irritability or moodiness
· Anxiety or nervousness
If you have diabetic hypoglycemia while sleeping, the following signs and symptoms may awaken you:
· Damp sheets or nightclothes due to perspiration
· Tiredness, irritability, or confusion upon waking
Signs and symptoms of severe hypoglycemia can occur if diabetic hypoglycemia is not treated. These are some examples:
· Clumsiness or jerky movements
· Inability to eat or drink
· Muscle weakness
· Difficulty speaking or slurred speech
· Blurry or double vision
· Convulsions or seizures
· Death, rarely
Symptoms can differ from individual or occurrence, and some folks have no discernible signs. It's also conceivable that you won't have any symptoms of hypoglycemia, so it's critical to routinely test your blood sugar levels and keep a record of how you feel when your blood sugar is low.
Severe hypoglycemia can lead to serious problems, including seizures or unconsciousness, that require emergency care. Make sure your family, friends, and co-workers know what to do in an emergency. If you're with someone who loses consciousness or can't swallow due to low blood sugar:
Consult your doctor if you experience hypoglycemic symptoms more than once a week. You may need to change your medication dosage or timing or otherwise modify your diabetes treatment programme.
Low blood sugar is more prevalent in insulin users, but it can also happen if you take some oral diabetic treatments.
When blood sugar levels are excessively high, the hormone insulin helps to reduce them. People with diabetes, whether type 1 or type 2, who take too much insulin risk having their blood sugar drop dangerously low, resulting in hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). If you take your diabetes medication and then eat less than usual (most of the body's glucose comes from food) or exercise more than usual (which utilizes more glucose), your blood sugar can fall dangerously low. You may find it difficult to keep insulin, food, and exercise levels balanced, but your doctor or diabetes educator can help.
Some people have a greater risk of diabetic hypoglycemia, including:
If you neglect hypoglycemia symptoms for a long period, you run the risk of passing out. This is because glucose is required for proper brain function. Identify the clinical symptoms of hyperglycemia sooner since uncontrolled hypoglycemia can cause:
Take any early signs you may be experiencing very carefully. Diabetic hypoglycemia can raise the risk of catastrophic and even fatal accidents.
To help prevent diabetic hypoglycemia:
Carry some diabetic identification with you so that others will know you have diabetes in an emergency: Use a medical identification necklace or bracelet, as well as a wallet card.
