[Best Syndication] A person that develops Type 2 Diabetes usually begins by having an insulin resistance. Type 1 diabetes develops when the immune system attacks the pancreases ability to produce insulin and they are dependent on insulin injections in order to live.

While Type 2 diabetes starts with insulin becoming non-functional to the body, the lack of insulin may be minor and degrade slowly over several years. The original names for type 2 diabetes are NIDDM which stands for non insulin dependent diabetes mellitus. Another name is for type 2 diabetes is adult-onset diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes is often associated with obesity, but sometimes a person can be at a healthy weight and still develop insulin resistance. There may be several genetic links that could increase a person’s chances of developing diabetes during their lifetime. Children that are obese can also develop insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.

[Best Syndication] Vitamin D is a group of fat-soluble prohormones. Vitamin D2 and Vitamin D3 are the two major forms of these prohormones. Vitamin D3 is created when the sun is exposed to skin. Sunlight has ultraviolet B radiation rays that are key for your body to make vitamin D3.

Vitamin D is important to help maintain organ systems. Vitamin D is well known for its aid in forming bone and is necessary to develop strong bones. Vitamin D is also important in the process of regulating calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood and it also promotes calcium to be re-absorbed via the kidneys to be stored for a later use in the bones.

Foods can be fortified with a synthetic vitamin D supplement. Cereals and milk are often fortified with vitamin D. Depending on the country that you live in will determine the amounts and extent that foods have been fortified.

[Best Syndication] Grapes contain a compound called resveratrol which has been researched and has been reported as an anti-aging and cancer preventing aid. New research published in the current issue of the science journal “Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism” report that resveratrol may also help protect against damage to the blood vessels caused by high levels of blood glucose.

Elevated levels of glucose in the blood are associated with increased risk for retinopathy, nephropathy, and heart disease. Retinopathy can lead to blindness, while nephropathy can lead to kidney failure. The glucose causes damage to the mitochondria and this causes electrons to leak and create damaging ‘free radical.’

Ketone Tests

Specially treated tablets (Acetest) or plastic test strips (Chemstrip K, Ketostix) detect the presence of ketones in the urine and blood (Acetest only). Ketones are substances that are formed when the body breaks down fats and carbohydrates for energy or food. When there are too many ketones in the body, they spill over into the urine. Ketones may be found in the urine of people who are fasting, on starvation diets, or in diabetics who have a very high blood sugar level because of lack of insulin. Ketones are not present in normal urine.

Uses

To detect ketones in urine.

To monitor for diabetic ketoacidosis, a complication of diabetes that may lead to diabetic coma. Ketoacidosis occurs in uncontrolled diabetes.

For your patient with diabetic retinopathy, a physician may prescribe eyedrops to lubricate the eyes, control postoperative pain, or fight infection. To make sure the patient administers the drops correctly, give her these instructions:

Wash your hands. Then check the drops for discoloration or sediment. If you see either, return the eyedrops to the pharmacy for a replacement.

Warm the eyedrops container by rolling it between your hands for several minutes.

Wipe any drainage from your eye with a clean cotton ball or a tissue moistened with water. Always wipe away from your eye, not toward it.

Tilt your head back slightly, look up at the ceiling, and pull down your lower eyelid.
