Intro To The Science Behind Diabetes

A scientific study published on NCBI investigated the the biggest factors which lead to diabetes.

What they found was it was not the increased sugar consumption, obesity and lack of exercise, but something far greater.

The study uncovers the linkages between diabetes and environmental toxins, which are now referred to diabetes researchers as diabetogens.

Is diabetes a disability?

Yes, diabetes is a disability.

As a matter of fact, according to the American Diabetes Association, the type 1 and type 2 diabetes is considered as a disability and are protected under the law.

However, people with diabetes can generally do any sport, job, or pursue their life goals just like any other people.

Unlike most disabilities, diabetes cannot be physically seen-which is why it is considered as an invisible disability. 

The primary reason why diabetes is considered as a disability is because it limits a person’s endocrine system.

Diabetes linked to environmental toxins?

According to a study from American Diabetes Associations (ADA):

Toxins and Diabetes Mellitus: An Environmental Connection?

There is a relationship between diabetes caused by improper regulation of the level of blood sugar and the exposure to certain toxins known as diabetogens in the environment.

The ability of the body to regulate the level of blood sugar correctly gets affected due to exposure to the diabetogens in various manners like decreasing your sensitivity to insulin or reducing the production of insulin in your body.

Some of the most common environmental toxins that can cause diabetes may include:

  • BPA (Bisphenol A)
  • Arsenic
  • OCP (Organochlorine Pesticides)
  • Dioxins
  • Phthalates
  • PCB (Polychlorinated Biphenyls)
  • PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons)

How has diabetes been linked to skin problems?

People who suffer from diabetes are found to have skin problems which are affected by or caused by diabetes.

Moreover, skin disorders can be the first sign that a person is suffering from diabetes.

The small blood vessels in the person’s human body are the ones in-charge for supplying the skin with blood. 

These blood vessels are affected once a person has a diabetes, which can then lead to diabetic dermopathy. 

Diabetic dermophaty appears as a red or light brown scaly patches that often occurs in a person’s legs.

What are the first signs of diabetes?

The most early signs of diabetes are from the high levels of glucose in a person’s blood. 

These warning signs can be mild and unnoticeable, especially for type 2 diabetes. 

In fact, some people don’t even realize that they have it until it’s too late, and they’ve suffered long-term complications because of it.

As for the type 1 diabetes, the signs usually happen in a few days or weeks, and are more severe compared with the symptoms of the type 2 diabetes. 

Here are the most common early symptoms for both types of diabetes:

  • Blurred vision
  • Peeing more often
  • Fatigue and hunger
  • Itchy skin and dry mouth
