    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    Diabetes occurs when the levels of blood glucose (sugar) become too high. Blood glucose is the main source of energy and is derived from the food which is consumed. Insulin is a hormone which is produced by the pancreas. Its function is to help derive glucose from food and deliver it to cells so that it can be used for energy. When the body doesn¶?t produce enough insulin or is not able to use the insulin well, the glucose levels rise due to abnormal regulation of insulin in the body which leads to diabetes
    Diabetes affects major organs of the body which include the heart, blood vessels, nerves, eyes, and kidneys. Uncontrolled blood glucose levels can cause damage to these organs and create complications if the blood glucose levels are not controlled. The complications can even cause disability in the body and can be life-threatening as well.
    The complications of diabetes include heart diseases, nerve damage, kidney damage, eye damage, foot damage, skin problems such as bacterial and fungal infections, problems in hearing, Alzheimer¶?s disease, and depression.
    The preventive measures which can be taken to avoid diabetes include the intake of healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Exercise for at least 30 minutes daily. Maintain a healthy weight. In case you are a diabetic, you should take medications prescribed by your doctor along with these preventive measures to avoid having complications of diabetes in the future.
