In the past nearly 6 years Modi Government has replaced PEOPLE With . BUSINESS .

It has also shown a way . to the world as to how to kill the Senior Citizens painfully, skillfully and by total ignorance like the famed CHANAKYA SAID” IGNORE TO KILL”.

It ignores the Seniors, veterans and pensioners, Retired people and doubles, triples the pharma, medicine prices to helps its crony businesses.  It makes RBI make monetary supply go higher even . when the INTELLECTUALLY BANKRUPT Business are flush with RESERVES earning nothing and lying idle.

This government on the name of Population Dividend makes tall claims but does nothing . for Welfare of citizens – the facilities in the cities are bad, the Electricity and power cut situation is worse than in UPA/ Congress rules.

High time to shake up this government and either make it work or let it go.

Does Modi Government care? for Seniors or Diabetics? NO Way!

It is a government of the business, by the Business, for the business.  Modi Government its policies in the name of “Population . Dividend” . helping kill the Senior citizens.

Diabetes treatment in Depth

Putting patients on Insulin a Scam?

The prices of Insulin in India increased 25 to 30% in past 6 months.

Insulin therapy is often an important part of diabetes treatment. Understand the key role insulin plays in managing your blood sugar and preventing diabetes complications.

The role of insulin in the body

It may be easier to understand the importance of insulin therapy if you understand how this naturally occurring hormone usually works in the body and what happens if you have diabetes.

If you don’t have diabetes, insulin helps:

  • Regulate blood sugar levels. After you eat, carbohydrates break down into glucose, a sugar that is the body’s primary source of energy. Glucose then enters the bloodstream. The pancreas responds by producing insulin, which allows glucose to enter the body’s cells to provide energy.
  • Store excess glucose for energy. After you eat — when insulin levels are high — excess glucose is stored in the liver in the form of glycogen. Between meals — when insulin levels are low — the liver releases glycogen into the bloodstream in the form of glucose. This keeps blood sugar levels within a narrow range.

If you have diabetes:

Your glucose levels will continue to rise after you eat because there’s not enough insulin to move the glucose into your body’s cells. People with type 2 diabetes don’t use insulin efficiently (insulin resistance) and don’t produce enough insulin (insulin deficiency). People with type 1 diabetes make little or no insulin.

Untreated, high blood glucose can eventually lead to complications such as blindness, nerve damage and kidney damage.

Goals of insulin therapy

If you have type 1 diabetes, insulin therapy is vital for replacing the insulin your body doesn’t produce. Sometimes, people with type 2 diabetes or gestational diabetes need insulin therapy if other treatments haven’t been able to keep blood glucose levels within the desired range. Insulin therapy helps prevent diabetes complications by keeping your blood sugar within your target range.

Types of insulin

There are several types of insulin available that vary in how quickly and how long they can control blood sugar. Frequently your doctor may recommend combining more than one type of insulin. To determine which types of insulin you need and how much you need, your doctor will consider factors such as the type of diabetes you have, your glucose levels, how much your blood sugar fluctuates throughout the day and your lifestyle.

The general types of insulin therapy include:

  • Long-, ultralong- or intermediate-acting insulin. When you’re not eating, your liver releases glucose so the body continually has energy. Long, ultra-long or intermediate-acting insulin helps the body use this glucose and keeps glucose levels from rising too high.
  • Examples of these insulins are glargine (Lantus, Basaglar, Toujeo), detemir (Levemir), degludec (Tresiba) and NPH (Humulin N, Novolin N, Novolin ReliOn Insulin N). These insulins work for between eight and 40 hours, depending on the type.
  • Rapid- or short-acting insulin. These insulins are ideal for preventing blood sugar spikes after you eat. They begin to work much faster than long-acting or intermediate-acting insulins do, sometimes in as little as three minutes. But they work for a much shorter period of time, usually about two to four hours.
  • Examples of these insulins include aspart (NovoLog, Fiasp), glulisine (Apidra), lispro (Humalog, Admelog) and regular (Humulin R, Novolin R).

Insulin delivery options

Insulin doesn’t come in pill form because the digestive system would break it down before it had a chance to work. But there are several choices for insulin delivery. Your doctor can help you decide which fits best with your lifestyle and treatment needs.

Options include:

  • Shots or pens. Insulin can be injected into the fat just below your skin with a syringe and needle or a penlike device that hold insulin with a needle attached. How often depends on the type of diabetes you have, your blood sugar levels and how often you eat. It may be multiple times each day.
  • Insulin pump. An insulin pump pushes small, steady doses of rapid-acting insulin into a thin tube inserted underneath your skin. These doses are delivered repeatedly throughout the day. There are several different kinds of insulin pumps available.
  • Inhaled insulin (Afrezza). This type of insulin is rapid-acting and you inhale it at the beginning of each meal. People who smoke or have lung problems such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease should not use inhaled insulin.

Insulin therapy can sometimes be demanding, but it’s an effective way to lower blood sugar levels. If you have any trouble with your insulin regimen, such as difficulty avoiding very low or very high blood sugar levels, be sure to talk to your doctor to see if any adjustments need to be made. By choosing an insulin regimen that fits your needs and lifestyle, you can prevent diabetes complications and lead an active, healthy life. via

Did you know…

… there is a  First Broadcast of SNL Day? Saturday Night Live was broadcast for the first time on this day in 1975, with George Carlin as the guest host. Janis Ian performed “At Seventeen” and “In the Winter.” Billy Preston played “Nothing from Nothing” and “Fancy Lady.” And to this day, SNL is still alive and kicking!

September 1, 1939 by W. H. Auden – Poems | Academy of American Poets

All I have is a voice
To undo the folded lie,
The romantic lie in the brain
Of the sensual man-in-the-street
And the lie of Authority
Whose buildings grope the sky:
There is no such thing as the State
And no one exists alone;
Hunger allows no choice
To the citizen or the police;
We must love one another or die.
