Diabetes care

Diabetes is the world’s largest lifestyle disease claiming millions of lives in a year. At Svasthay setu we’ve created a comprehensive solution to help patients manage their diabetes effectively and lead long, healthy lives.

Diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) health condition that affects how your body turns food into energy.

Most of the food you eat is broken down into sugar (also called glucose) and released into your bloodstream. When your blood sugar goes up, it signals your pancreas to release insulin. Insulin acts like a key to let the blood sugar into your body’s cells for use as energy.

There are three main types of diabetes:  

Type 1 diabetes is thought to be caused by an autoimmune reaction  that stops your body from making insulin. Approximately 5-10% of the people who have diabetes have type 1. Symptoms of type 1 diabetes often develop quickly. It’s usually diagnosed in children, teens, and young adults. If you have type 1 diabetes, you’ll need to take insulin every day to survive. Currently, no one knows how to prevent type 1 diabetes. 

 Type 2 diabetes, your body doesn’t use insulin well and can’t keep blood sugar at normal levels. About 90-95% of people with diabetes have type 2. It develops over many years and is usually diagnosed in adults . You may not notice any symptoms, so it’s important to get your blood sugar tested if you’re at risk.  Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed with healthy lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, eating healthy food, and being active.

Gestational diabetes develops in pregnant women who have never had diabetes. If you have gestational diabetes, your baby could be at higher risk for health problems. Gestational diabetes usually goes away after your baby is born but increases your risk for type 2 diabetes later in life. Your baby is more likely to have obesity as a child or teen, and more likely to develop type 2 diabetes later in life too.

A blood sugar level less than 140 mg/dL  normal. A reading of more than 200 mg/dL  after two hours indicates diabetes. A reading between 140 and 199 mg/dL  indicates prediabetes.

  1. vegetables. nonstarchy: includes broccoli, carrots, greens, peppers, and tomatoes.

  3. grains—at least half of your grains for the day should be whole grains.
