What Is Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes Mellitus is a disorder when too much sugar is circulating in your blood stream. Sugar, also known as glucose, is an important and necessary fuel for our bodies. So necessary, that both the liver and the kidneys produce it naturally. However, we get the most sugar from the foods we eat.

Blood sugar levels normally stay in a certain range. In other words, your body has a system that regulates how much sugar is circulating in your blood stream. That system centers on a hormone called insulin, which is released from cells located in the pancreas. Insulin speeds up the transfer of sugar from your blood and delivers it into your muscle, liver and fat tissues where it is used as fuel or stored for your body to use later.

If you don’t have enough insulin, sugar accumulates in your blood stream and you have diabetes. There are different factors that determine why you don’t have enough insulin, and those factors determine if you have type 1, type 2, gestational diabetes or other types of diabetes.

  • Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes is caused by a loss or malfunction of the insulin producing cells, called pancreatic beta cells. Damage to beta cells result in an absence or insufficient production of insulin produced by the body. Most cases of type 1 diabetes have an autoimmune basis, and the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys beta cells. Since insulin is necessary to sustain life, the missing insulin has to be replaced. The replacement insulin is administered by injection using a syringe or an insulin pump, which delivers the insulin under the skin. While type 1 diabetes is commonly diagnosed during adolescence and early adulthood, it can occur at any age. Older people who develop type 1 diabetes are often misdiagnosed as having Type 2 diabetes.
  • Type 2 Diabetes:To put it simply, you have Diabetes Mellitus when too much sugar is circulating in your blood stream. Sugar, also known as glucose, is an important and necessary fuel for our bodies. So necessary, that both the liver and the kidneys produce it naturally; however, we get the most sugar from the foods we eat.
  • Gestational Diabetes:Gestational diabetes refers to diabetes diagnosed during pregnancy. Pregnancy hormones can interfere with the way insulin works in the mother’s body which can lead to elevated blood glucose levels during pregnancy. Women are typically screened for gestational diabetes at 24-28 weeks of pregnancy, however women who have risk factors may be screened earlier. Risk factors for developing gestational diabetes include having a family history of diabetes, being overweight, or being over 25 years of age. Women who are African American, Hispanic, American Indian or Asian are more likely to develop gestational diabetes. Blood glucose control during pregnancy is critical as elevated maternal glucose levels can lead to pregnancy complications and poses risks to the health of the baby. Gestational diabetes is likely to recur during subsequent pregnancies.
  • Other Types Of Diabetes:Other is a “catch all” category that refers to other specific and unusual forms of diabetes. Traditional examples are single genetic defects (also known as Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young or MODY), cystic fibrosis, hemochromatosis, surgical and drug causes.


Why choose Linked Works Diabetes Housekeeper App

Diabetes Housekeeper is an insulin dose calculator for individuals who need to inject short-acting insulin, including type 1 and type 2. Insulin is very different from other drugs. In addition to the personal factors of diabetes, the insulin dose depends on the patient's diet, including the amount of food consumption. Insulin is used to counteract the effects of carbohydrates in food on blood sugar. Carbohydrates in food are related to the variety of foods and the amount of food. In other words, beside personal factors, the short-acting insulin dose also depends on the amount of food and food. Diabetes Housekeeper app is designed to automatically and accurately calculate insulin dose based on diabetes food in every single meal. Diabetes Housekeeper is the only application in the world that integrates large amounts of food nutrients into the insulin calculator and covers multiples of counties. At this time, we provide up to 20,000 foods with carbohydrate and dietary fiber data and cover Chinese, Canadian and American food sources. Diabetes Housekeeper also keeps all diabetes data, such as blood sugar levels, blood pressure in your device and display them in both graphical and tabular ways.


Introduction to Diabetes Housekeeper

The Diabetes Housekeeper app is designed to help diabetic individuals who need insulin injections, including patients with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes (type 2 diabetes who require insulin).

The Diabetes Housekeeper app is the only app in the world today that integrates a large number of foods nutrients to an insulin calculator. The technology is based on specific circumstances of each diabetic patient to provide accurate calculations of insulin injection doses. This relieves the need for excessive insulin injections, and allows patients to choose foods they enjoy while still maintaining the blood sugar level stability.

Most of the diabetic patients choose to eat the same foods for each meal, or choose only a limited selection of foods. They don’t attempt to try their favorite foods in fear of destabilizing their blood sugar level even when the blood sugar level is still fluctuating. The main reason for the fluctuations are that different foods contain different amounts of carbohydrates and fiber, and insulin doses are traditionally injected in fixed amounts or speculated amounts.

The Diabetes Housekeeper app brings diabetic patients a new experience. Patients no longer need to worry about choosing what kind of food to eat and guess what doses of insulin to inject. This is made easy with Diabetes Housekeeper app. Follow the steps below

  1. Setting up basic parameters as described in User Manual or Video
  2. Test your glucose just before eating your meal and enter it into Before Meal in the app’s first page
  3. Select food you will eat and enter the amount that you are going to eat
  4. Click the Calculate Bolus button. you will get an insulin dose that you need to inject to cover what you eat
