Hydrotherapy program for diabetes patient
Diabetes is a chronic disease associated with abnormally high levels of the sugar glucose in the blood. Diabetes is due to one of two mechanisms:
1.Inadequate production of insulin(Which is made by the pancreas and lowers blood glucose),or
2.Inadequate sensitivity of cells to the action of insulin
The two main types of diabetes correspond to these two mechanisms and are called insulin dependent(type1) and non-insulin dependent(type2) diabetes.In type 1 diabetes there is no insulin or not enough of it. In type 2 diabetes, there is generally enough insulin but the cells upon it should act are not normally sensitive to its action.
The signs and symptoms of both types of diabetes include increased urine output and decreased appetite as well as fatigue. Diabetes is diagnosed by blood glucose testing, the glucose tolerrancetest, and testing of the level of glycosylated hemoglobin(glycohemoglobin or hemoglobin A1C). The mode of treatment depends on the type of the diabetes.
The major complications of diabetes include dangerously elevated blood sugar, abnormally low blood sugar due to diabetes medication, and disease of the blood vessels which can damage the eyes, kidney, nerves, and heart.
The important treatment of diabetes are nutrition control, diabetes medication, self hygiene , weight control and exercise . Exercise is specially good not only for treatment but also for prevention in the risk groups.
The type 2 diabetes patient should perform a 20-30 minute light aerobic exercise (feeling mild to moderate exhaustion during exercise). Do 3 days/ week and at the same times with friends every session.
