Diabetes merupakan satu sindrom atau penyakit akibat dari kekurangan atau hilangnya keberkesanan hormon insulin.
Insulin membolehkan glukosa memasuki sel-sel dalam badan
Sel-sel ini kemudiannya menggunakan glukosa sebagai sumber tenaga.
Tanpa insulin, paras glukosa darah akan meningkat. Dalam masyarakat Melayu ianya dikenali (secara tidak tepat) sebagai kencing manis.
Terdapat 2 jenis diabetes:
- Diabetes yang bergantung kepada insulin (IDDM atau diabetes Jenis I).
- Diabetes yang tidak bergantung kepada insulin (NIDDM atau diabetes Jenis II)
Tanda-tanda dan gejala amaran
| || |
Diabetes yang tidak dikawal dengan betul atau tidak didiagnos boleh merosakkan saluran darah dan saraf.
Ini akan memberi kesan kepada jantung, buah pinggang, mata dan kaki (luka yang lambat sembuh) dan menyebabkan penentangan terhadap jangkitan terutamanya di kaki dan buah pinggang.
Ingat bahawa, komplikasi mata berlaku secara senyap terutamanya bagi diabetes Jenis II. Adalah penting untuk mengenali gejala-gejalanya lebih awal. Dapatkan pemeriksaan mata lebih kerap dan amalkan kebersihan kaki dengan baik.
· Elakkan makanan yang mengandungi kandungan gula dan lemak yang tinggi ie nasi lemak,teh tarik roti canai dan kuih-kuih yang manis...
· Jangan mengambil snek di antara waktu makan..ada yang mengesyorkan supaya tidak" supper" dan elak dari makan malam at least 4 jam sebelum tidor.
· Jangan melangkau waktu makan anda..ini akan mendorong anda makan dgn banyak..
· Berhenti merokok
· Berhenti mengambil alkohol
· Berjumpalah doktor anda selalu..dan bagi yang mengidap DM adalah di syorkan membeli mesin pengukur kandungan gula dalam darah dan buat ujian sendiri at least sekali seminggu...dan membawak keputusan ini jumpa doktor setiap kali follow up.
· Bersenamlah secara tekal, dapatkan ujian darah terlebih dahulu sebelum memulakan aktiviti anda (jangan bersenam selepas sahaja mendapat suntikan insulin).
· Dapatkan pemeriksaan mata anda secara berkala
· Jaga kaki anda dengan baik. Jangan

You may already know that high blood pressure, also called hypertension, is one of the leading risk factors for heart attack and stroke, but do you know why?
.....The heart and blood vessels together form the cardiovascular system, and a defect in either one is bound to affect the other. ...
The following information can help you learn about what blood pressure is and how high blood pressure can affect your cardiovascular health.
Apa itu high blood pressure?
Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your blood vessels.
When you have your blood pressure checked, you'll notice that the measurement is given as two separate numbers, 110/70 for instance.
The top number refers to the pressure in your arteries when your heart is pumping (systolic pressure).
The lower number refers to the pressure in your arteries when the heart is resting (diastolic). Blood pressure changes throughout the day depending on your activity, stress level and other factors.
High blood pressure is usually defined as blood pressure greater than 140/90 that fails to come down regardless of your activities.
High blood pressure has virtually no noticeable side effects in its early stage. That is why everyone should have their blood pressure checked annually (if the results are normal), or every few months (if the results are borderline or high)...... Sadly, all too often the first "sign" of hypertension is a heart attack, stroke, or kidney problem.
Effects On The Heart
When blood pressure is too high and remains that way, arterial walls become weakened and more prone to atherosclerosis (a build up of fatty substances on the inner walls of the arteries).
The heart must then work harder to try to pump oxygenated blood through the clogged arteries.
The clogged arteries are also more prone to blood clots that can block the flow of blood entirely. Excess blood pressure can also cause arteries to bulge (aneurysm) or burst (hemorrhage).
Controlling Your Blood Pressure
The first step in blood pressure control is regular blood pressure checks.
If you are diagnosed as having high blood pressure, follow your doctor's instructions faithfully.
Your treatment plan may include exercise and diet recommendations as well as medications to lower blood pressure if needed. We still don't know how to prevent high blood pressure. We can, fortunately, learn how to control it.
Living With Hypertension.....
Tips for Managing High Blood Pressure)
If you have high blood pressure (hypertension), you already know that it is one of the leading, but most easily controllable, risk factors for heart disease and stroke. By following your doctor's recommendations and using these guidelines for blood pressure control, you can manage your blood pressure and lead a full and active life.
Too much sodium (commonly found in table salt) can aggravate high blood pressure by causing your body to retain excess fluids.
These excess fluids can make it harder for your heart to pump effectively and can irritate already sensitive blood vessels..
If you suffer from hypertension, you will probably be advised to cut down on added salt and to avoid high sodium foods such as snack chips, processed meats, and cured or smoked products,ikan masin, budu, pekasam and cencalok....etc.
Limit Cholesterol and Fats
Too much dietary cholesterol and saturated fats (the kind that stay hard at room temperature) can build up on the inner walls of blood vessels, causing strain on both the heart and the blood vessels themselves.
Limit your daily cholesterol to no more than 100 mg. of cholesterol per 1,000 calories of food. Restrict saturated fats to no more than 10% of your daily calories.
Regular aerobic exercise has been shown to help lower blood pressure as well as raise layers of "protective" HDL cholesterol (the kind that carries artery-clogging cholesterol out of the blood).
If you smoke, stop. Smoking not only raises blood pressure, but also damages arterial walls. Smoking is also linked to higher levels of artery-clogging cholesterol.
Take Prescribed Medications
If diet and exercise fail to lower your blood pressure to safe levels, your doctor may prescribe daily medication. Take your medication faithfully.
If you experience side effects, don't stop your medication.Some of the ubat can cause "Erectile Dysfunction"...so inform your doctor... notify your doctor who can recommend an alternate type of medicine.
Check Your Blood Pressure Regularly
The importance of regular blood pressure screenings can't be over-emphasized. For those who suffer from high blood pressure, check-ups can help track your progress, evaluate your treatment, and motivate you to continue your blood pressure control program.
Blood pressure control does take a commitment of both time and effort, but isn't your health worth it?

Too beautiful not to share ….
Anger is a condition in which
The tongue works faster than the mind .
You can't change the past,
but you can ruin the present
By worrying over the future!
Love...and you shall be loved.
God always gives His best to those
who leave the choice with Him.
All people smile in the same language.
Everyone needs to be loved...
especially when they do not deserve it.
The real measure of a man's wealth
is what he has invested in eternity.
Laughter is God's sunshine.
Everyone has beauty
but not everyone sees it.
It's important for parents to live
the same things they teach.
Thank God for what you have,
TRUST GOD for what you need.
If you fill your heart with regrets of
yesterday and the worries of tomorrow,
you have no today to be thankful for.
Man looks at outward appearance
but the Lord looks within.
The choice you make today
will usually affect tomorrow.
Take time to laugh, for it is
the music of the soul.
Patience is the ability to idle your motor
when you feel like stripping your gears.
Love is strengthened by working
through conflicts together.
Harsh words break no bones
but they do break hearts..
To get out of a difficulty,
one usually must go through it.
We take for granted the things
that we should be giving thanks for.
Love is the only thing that can be
divided without being diminished.
Happiness is enhanced by others
but does not depend upon others.
For every minute you are angry with
someone, you lose 60 seconds of
happiness that you can never get back.
with what you have, and where you are.
