Diabetes Myths and Facts

There are number of myths about diabetes treatment. A diabetic should know correct information about diabetes and its treatment.

Insulin is the best drug for the treatment of type 1 diabetes (Insulin dependent diabetes), also known as juvenile onset diabetes. Administration of insulin caused disappearance of sugar from the urine and lowers down the above level of sugar to the normal level of blood, within 24-48 hours. There are several myths about diabetes treatment. Some of them are as below -

Myth – Uncooked food or food taken in raw form helps in checking diabetes

Fact – The calorie value of foods whether raw or cooked remain unchanged and so is their fattening attribute. The effect of food on human body in terms of calorie accumulation remains the same and this provides no guard against diabetes. It is more important to eat wisely and have a balanced diet whatever the form.

Myth – A diabetic person can balance off over eating with use of insulin

Fact – No, a diabetic person should follow the diet plan given by his doctor. Violation from it can lead to complications. Many diabetics live longer than normal people because they have a tendency to regulate their lives more strictly than the non-diabetic. They avoid or restrict foods containing a large quantity of ‘free sugar’ such as ice cream, pastries, cake, sweets, table sugar, etc.

Myth - Non- consumption of sugar, sweets or excessive amount of carbohydrates checks the onset of diabetes

Fact – There is no medical evidence to support this point. The exact cause of diabetes is not known. Studies have shown that the disease occurs more frequently in people who have a family history and who are overweight. Other causes are abnormal function of the pancreas, liver, adrenal glands, pituitary gland and other related structures.

 Excessive intake of sugar or sweets may aggravate and bring to light an underlying tendency towards diabetes.
