Chapter One; Understanding Chronic Diseases

Chronic diseases are diseases that persist for a long time; three months or more. A vaccine cannot prevent them, nor be cured by medication, nor do they just disappear. Examples include;


  1. Alzheimer's;

It is the progressive mental deterioration that occurs due to generalized degeneration of the brain. It destroys memory and other important function of the brain.


  1. Cancer;

It is caused by the uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body. There are different types of cancer examples include ;

  • Colorectal cancer-Cancer of the large intestines, including the rectum. It mostly begins as non-cancerous clumps of cells.

  • Breast cancer

  • Cervical cancer


  1. Diabetes;

Another chronic condition plaguing our country is diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where the body does not make adequate amounts of insulin, or the body does not respond to the number of insulins that is made. Insulin is a hormone that permits cells to expend glucose from the blood. Without insulin, glucose isn't taken up into the body's tissue cells satisfactorily and remains in the circulatory system, making the body endure various metabolic conditions.


Diabetes comes in two forms of the disease—type 1 and type 2. Although the mechanism of type 1 is not fully understood, it has classically been considered a complex immune disorder, triggered by some foreign agent, such as a viral infection. There is also considerable evidence in the research literature that suggests the consumption of cow's milk may predispose some individuals to type 1 diabetes. In either case, type 1 diabetes is considered caused by an autoimmune process, a condition where the body's immune system attacks itself. Type 1 diabetes is deemed to be rare, occurring in just 5-10% of all diabetics.4


The typical way type 1 diabetes is discovered is when an infant or a child as old as a young adolescent, has an episode of extremely elevated blood sugar, following an apparent viral syndrome. Frequently the child will experience a condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis that will require them to be hospitalized and to receive an infusion of insulin to control their blood sugar and blood acid levels. Essentially, what happens is that insulin-producing cells of the pancreas are destroyed, and the pancreas is no longer able to make insulin. An individual with this form of diabetes is truly insulin-dependent, typically requiring multiple daily injections of the insulin hormone. This condition is also referred to as childhood or juvenile diabetes.


Type 2 diabetes, on the other hand, develops in a normally functioning pancreas, at least initially. Long before an individual meets the clinical definition of diabetes, they will go through a prolonged period of insulin resistance. In this state, the pancreas will produce ever-increasing amounts of insulin, which is necessary to maintain a normal blood sugar level. Eventually, the body becomes overwhelmed, and the pancreas can no longer produce enough insulin to consume higher levels of glucose in the blood. The body loses the battle, and blood sugar levels begin to rise. Our bodies fight the good fight and try desperately to alert us to what is going on. We will start to exhibit a condition, often referred to as pre-diabetes or insulin resistance, in many cases years or even decades before meeting the clinical criteria for type 2 diabetes. Are we paying attention?


Diabetes is associated with several significant medical problems. These include:

  • Heart disease and stroke

  • Blindness

  • Kidney failure

  • Peripheral artery disease (potentially resulting in amputation)

  • Neurological disease, specifically peripheral neuropathy


In the case of type 2 diabetes, we have long known that controlling blood sugar has little if any impact on the progression of long-term diabetes complications such as blindness, heart disease, kidney failure, and peripheral arterial disease. Although women have unfortunately become accustomed to their increasing girth, they still seem to retain a healthy respect for the potential negative impact of diabetes.


What is the reason for such a different response? I believe it is because of an individual whether they are personally dealing with a chronic condition like diabetes, or watching a loved one go through it, along with family members and friends, recognize the daily human struggle brought on by diabetes. There are daily challenges required in a diabetic's life because of the many complications associated with their disease.
