Is There a Relationship between DVT and Diabetes?

Diabetes is a sometimes life-threatening disease that affects over 23 million Americans and is the cause of as many of one-fifth of the deaths reported each year.  In addition to the complications caused by the disease itself, such as going into diabetic shock, there are several other diseases and conditions that are caused by or increased by having diabetes including heart disease and an increased occurrence of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) which is the formation of potentially life-threatening blood clots.  DVT & diabetes are closely linked since people with diabetes are two times more likely to develop these blood clots.

The Basics Of Nutrition And Diabetes

The single most important thing that one can do when faced with type 2 diabetes is to control your diet. While glucose levels are the primary concern that diabetics face, it is also necessary to treat other aspects of the disease with diet. For example, diabetes can lead to high acidity levels in the blood, so it is necessary to eat foods that contain alkaline compounds that will mitigate the acidity. Also, since many pancreatic digestive enzymes are not produced in abundance by diabetics, it is important to supplement these natural enzymes with sources in your diet. Mild forms of diabetes can be controlled completely with proper attention to diet and exercise and it can be possible to slow the advance of the disease by following a few simple dietary rules.
