One of my friend was lately diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. It came as total shocker to her as she didn’t fell any symptoms like lack of energy, frequent urination and weight loss.
When her physician ordered a test at her yearly check up She came to know that she is diabetic.
I, along with her doctor took this diagnosis very seriously as my friend had previously been diagnosed with high blood pressure, or hypertension, a few years ago.

Is that a problem? People should understand more than two third of people with diabetes do have high blood pressure.
Normally diabetes means that the body could not process sugar properly. There are two types of diabetes. In type 1 the pancreas will not produce enough insulin to maintain blood sugar between meals. People who suffer from this kind of diabetes need to inject insulin in order to maintain blood sugar.
Type 2 diabetes is a condition where the body does actually produce insulin but it is unable to properly process sugar. Of the over 5 million sufferers of diabetes (experts believe this number is actually double and that many people suffer from the disease and don’t realize it), between 90-95% of those suffer type 2 diabetes.
For the people who suffer from type 2 diabetes high sugar affects the tissues and begins to erode. Heart, kidney, eyes and nerves are most affected. From the research it has been confirmed that diabetes is the main cause for kidney failure and 6th reason for heart failure.
Just like high blood pressure, the person who suffers from diabetes feels no symptoms at all. And this affects their major organs and eyes for years.
In fact, those with high blood pressure and diabetes are over 75 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack or stroke! In addition to this hypertension also affects heart, kidney’s and eyes.
While medication is needed for many with diabetes, the good news is that you can help delay or prevent the effects of the disease from spreading simply by maintaining a healthy weight and exercising. Additionally, avoid excessive alcohol intake.
Even though medications are available for hypertension it comes with dangerous side effects. Similar to diabetes people who suffer from hypertension can also do certain things like regular exercise, maintaining health, avoid drinking excess alcohol and stop smoking to reduce the effects of hypertension.
