A problem in circulation when you have diabetes is not a game
It is common that we sometimes have the feeling that our feet or hands are "asleep." In more severe cases, swelling and even cramps may appear as well as tingling.
If this is a recurrent, then the more likely it is that you have circulation problems, the most common is that they are due to a lack of physical activity, fat buildup and / or a poor diet.
In this case, we are talking about diabetes, and it is almost impossible for a person suffering from diabetes to have no circulation problems. But why are they particularly likely to develop circulatory problems?
Dr. Enrique López-Villa, a member of the Doctoralia platform, explains that due to the high levels of glucose (ie, sugar) in the blood, changes in blood vessels may occur. Or, if we do not exercise as we owe, we can accumulate a lot of fat that covers the arteries that carry blood.
The angiologist, López-Villa, emphasizes that the best recommendation or "tip" that he can give is to go immediately to his doctor if there is any problem to make a true diagnosis of what is present. Another option is to go directly to an angiologist, as they are specialists in the blood vessels of the circulatory system and the lymphatic system.
However, there are some tips that we can share to reduce this condition:
– Drink lots of water: it revitalizes and helps improve circulation because it prevents the blood from becoming viscous.
– Exercise: how to lose weight helps control sugar levels.
– Avoid refined sugars: Avoid alterations in the blood vessels.
A low fat diet and carbohydrates, this does not mean that you live restricted, you simply go to a nutritionist to help you develop a nutritional plan based on your tastes and needs.
Foods such as garlic, ginger and fish (or fish oil), since all of these help to dilate the blood vessels, which prevents the clots.
Always remember that a problem in circulation when you have diabetes is not a game, it stays out of control could lead to amputation of a part of the body, hypertension, liver and kidney problems and even death among many other consequences. Although it is not about living in fear, only be responsible.
