Is diabetes really a killer disease ???

Very rarely one hears that some one has died of diabetes. People die either of renal failure,heart disease,hypertension or brain stroke ! As a matter of fact diabetes is not even a disease . It is a disorder,a metabolic disorder. How can a disorder be killing? At best it is a nuisance. More so when it is a man made disease. A conspiracy conceived by big pharma industry in collaboration with world health bodies. These health bodies get huge grants to run their institutions. The scientific community actively helping by misinterpreting genuine researches.

Sugar in blood is a normal phenomenon. What if it goes high, a normal body metabolic process. Do we really need to interfere in the natural process occurring in our system ?

Do you remember a not long ago it is said that blood sugar above 140 mg is diabetes . This made people diabetic all over the world. But the greed of pharmacy industry is unlimited. So the para meters lowered , now 120mg is set as dead line for diabetes. Lo and behold more people became diabetic overnight. But the story does not end here, they further lowered the limit to 100 mg. so more and more are labelled diabetics. And the vested interest has the last laugh.

  • While diabete is a metabolic disorder, why it occurs in some and why not in others is still not understood. However one can say it is a manifestation of hormonal imbalance in the body mechanism, Insulin is a major harmone responsible for the disorder. To catagoriise people as diabetics or non diabetics based on the limits of blood sugar levels appears to be based on medical experience over years based on research and not on pharma industry ‘s whims.

    To say diabetes is a ‘nuisance’ is underplaying its role in causing harm to other organs of the body and is a dangerous thought one should not even subscribe let alone even think about in such terms.

    To my mind, that it is “a man made disease” is also a dangerous comment as it is unsupported by any worth while research /evidence of any kind..

    Further to say that “a conspiracy conceived by big pharma industry in collaboration with world health bodies and these health bodies get huge grants to run their institutions.and that the scientific community actively helping by misinterpreting genuine researches.” Is highly speculative and uncharitable statement when all these are on the noble task of controlling diseases including diabetes.

    Yes. sugar fluctuation in blood level at different times of the day/.night is a normal biological phenomenon. But if it goes high beyond a normal body metabolic process / limit, it is something to worry about as it is proved beyond reasonable doubt that it affects normal healthy functioning of the body. We need to make efforts to correct the process occurring in our system by any means as per present medical knowledge available to us.

    That blood sugar above 140 mg is diabetes or the para meters lowered now 120mg further lowered limit to 100 mg. Is a statiscal average based on experience of handling diabetic complications and it is sane and prudent to follow this norm in the interest of better health.

    i agree with ragivrao.

    Diabetes is a killer disease.

    It aggrevates certain life threatening conditions like infection and septicemia. Also it interferes with the treatment.

    One should not take the disease lightly. Blood fluctuations in diabetics and nondiabetics have a different significance. While nondiabetics clear the sugar rapidity we diabetics are poor in that. Also our vessels have suffered insult because of diabetes. A simple gall bladdder stone disease in nondiabetics turns into a lethal disease in diabetics because a gb with stones catches infection soon in D. Also such infection spreads easily to the blood causing septicemia. Infection in gb in ND can be controlled easily but not in D. This is just one example. Any disease in D has more severe and serious course.

    Again a toe injury in a ND goes unnoticed but in D can lead to gangrene and amputation.

    Yes. Diabetes is a killer disease.

    D= diabetics

    ND= non D

  • This post was written in lighter vein. But most people failed to grasp the humour and took things very seriously. So as usual last laugh is always mine.

  • Pataliputra

    I could feel so but was not sure.Hence thought of putting the matter in. proper perspective so that the debate does not go haywire.But it has. I am sorry.

  • Perfectly agreed! ThesePharma Giants in gloves with. Drs.scaring the diabetics which is nothing more than harmone imbalance ,set rt,by my dr.withiut even medicines,insulin,purely by dietary control,,,certainly not a killer variety..

  • Diabetes is blessing for human, It teaches that how you live & enjoy your life fully, Make diabetes your friend, what is required by this friend, do with full pleasure. This friend becomes your anime, when you oppose him, doing against their requirements.

    He teach you eating, exercise, guide you about your mental status that it will always in pleasant  state, free from tension, worry, hurry & phobia's etc.


  • Absolute utter nonsense. Politeness precludes what I would really like to say!

  • I agree with the second part but not with the first part, @ patliputra.

  • When you think its blessing for you than you enjoyed new system necessary for controlling diabetes, When you think diabetes is your killer, than your state of mind will in horror and you are doing all things as an punishment.

    In my view in both the cases the change only on attitude NOT for carelessness, and I never support such life style creates complications.

    I feel that diabetes compel you for change in big way, that saves you from many health troubles. This work as first WARNING SIGNAL for your health issues.

    Its upon you that you take every aspect as POSITIVE or as NEGATIVE, Its my way to avoid negativity from mind that to see another side of this coin- As POSITIVE.

    Thanks for every body.
