Diabetes Blood Sugar Control
It's very important for patients suffering from type 2 diabetes to control their blood sugar. The body is normally destroyed by increased levels of sugar in the blood which results in inflammation. Many wonder why inflammation is caused by increased levels of sugar in the body.
Inflammation in the body can be lessened by controlling levels of sugar in the blood. An increase in levels of sugar in the blood results in the creation of a bond between the sugar and the red blood cells. Normally this sugar appends itself to the hemoglobin molecule contained in the red blood cells. The amount of sugar appended to the hemoglobin molecule decreases if the levels of sugar in your blood are controlled; otherwise the amount of sugar appended to the hemoglobin molecule increases.
Sugar appended to the exterior part of the red blood can be compared to the way sand attaches itself to a moist object. A crystalline crust which is very coarse is created. Try to envision that there are millions of very coarse red blood cells in your system and the harm that would happen to your circulatory system. Arteries that are destroyed are sealed off by cholesterol and this can result in strokes and heart attacks in people suffering from type 2 diabetes.
Fragile capillary beds can also be damaged by coarse red blood cells. Capillaries are the minute blood vessels in our bodies. Patients with poor blood sugar control can experience greater damage in dense capillary areas such as hands and feet. Poor flow of blood caused by damaged capillary beds can result to infections and more serious problems such as amputations in people with type 2 diabetes.
If you imagine what your body will go through due to the inflammation and damage, you will be able to understand why diabetic patients experience so many terminal problems. Good blood sugar control is very important since our bodies cannot stand that kind of mistreatment for a long time.
