Type 2 diabetes

Type 2 diabetes

How Avi Medical helps you

As a diabetic, quick access to medical advice and appropriate medication is indispensable. Our competent doctors in our Avi Medical practices will clarify with you in your first consultation which symptoms are bothering you and will find the right therapy for you.
Unlike with type 1 diabetes, with type 2 diabetes your GP is your primary contact. Throughout your diabetes treatment, our doctors are your constant companions and always there for you.

What is diabetes mellitus type 2?

Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disease that leads to persistently elevated blood sugar levels. The sugar supplied through food cannot be absorbed into the body's cells, which causes the sugar level in the blood to rise. If this level is permanently elevated, vessels and organs can suffer serious damage.

This disease is not that rare! Almost eight million people in Germany are affected by it.

What are possible symptoms? What are the consequences?

With diabetes, those affected often suffer from:

  • strong urge to urinate
  • constant thirst
  • Fatigue
  • Dry skin
  • frequent infections
  • Acetone smell in the mouth


Unfortunately, the disease can also remain undetected for many years. This is a problem, because in the long term, diabetes can cause long-term damage to health through damage to the small and large arteries and nerves. Heart attacks, heart failure, strokes and even kidney damage can be the consequences. It is therefore important to recognise the disease at an early stage and also to treat it in order to avoid long-term consequences, especially to the heart, blood vessels and kidneys.


Treatment of type 2 diabetes at Avi Medical

With a simple blood test, it can be clarified whether the corresponding symptoms are actually due to diabetes mellitus. Depending on the type of disease, there are different treatment options.
In the case of type 2 diabetes, it is often sufficient at the beginning to change the lifestyle and take medication. Patients should exercise a lot, lose excess weight and eat a healthy and varied diet.

What do I have to do?

Always pay attention to the following points:

  • Provide the body with sufficient energy. Eat slow-acting carbohydrates, e.g. unsalted nuts.
  • Alwayscarry your meter with you. If your blood glucose level drops rapidly, you can counteract this with glucose or a meal.
  • Do not go to bed with elevated levels. The risk of hypoglycaemia is greatest during sleep, as it usually goes unnoticed. It is recommended that you take a blood glucose reading before going to bed. You should also set an alarm clock to check your blood glucose level again after a few hours.

Prevention

You can prevent type 2 diabetes! A lot of exercise and a balanced, healthy diet are the basis. In addition, you should avoid permanent negative stress, as this increases the blood sugar level and keeps it constantly high.
