Any type of diabetes condition has a tremendous effect on one’s body and overall health. The chronic condition is not only associated with the influence that insulin has on blood sugar levels but also the ripple effect it starts on the other organ systems in the body. As insulin is produced in the pancreas, alongside a few other hormones, it disbalances the whole endocrine system which has a direct impact on the cardiovascular system. Just like a domino effect – the insufficient insulin doses produced by the body have a direct reflection on the skin, eyes, digestion, nerves, muscles, and more.
To connect the dots between all systems in the body and how different types of diabetes affect them – we created a whitepaper that explains everything in a simple, yet understandable way. Our aim is to give the information needed to realize how insulin resistance affects the whole body. We take a deep dive into diabetes-related health risks, common complications that occur frequently, preventative measures that need to be taken into consideration, and many tips on blood sugar management.
To deliver a 360-degree in-depth whitepaper that can be used as a reference point about diabetes and its effect on every system in the body, we worked alongside assoc. prof. Dr. Radka Savova, MD, Ph.D.
Prof. Savova is a pediatrician and an endocrinologist with over 30 years’ worth of experience in diabetes treatment. She is the head of the Department of Diabetes in the Children’s Hospital “Prof. Dr. Ivan Mitev”, as well as part of the Medical Advisory Board of Sirma Medical Systems, and is deeply involved in the production of new features and perfecting existing ones in the Diabetes:M app.
