DIETITIANS AND DIABETES
Diabetes is linked to having blood glucose that remains too high after eating carbohydrates (sugars). This occurs when the insulin released in the blood is insufficient or ineffective. In healthy people, insulin moves glucose inside the body’s cells. When you have diabetes, the cells are deprived of nutrients and the glucose that stays too high in the blood becomes toxic.
You may have diabetes if you experience some or all of the following symptoms:
Extreme fatigue, drowsiness, and physical weakness
Increased urine volume and frequency
Loss or gain of weight without a clear cause
Poor wound healing
Infection of the genitals, gums, or skin
Tingling in the hands and feet
High levels of glucose in your blood, called hyperglycemia, may be due to several factors:
Diet too high in carbohydrates or unbalanced
Insufficient insulin and/or antidiabetic drugs
Weight too high
