During the generation of electricity at hydropower plant, most times, the generation of one of such power plant is insufficient to meet the needs of a country. There are other cases where such plants can meet the power demand of a local community. During off-season in such communities, the energy demand may drop, and the power plant becomes underutilized, and in order to avoid damage to equipment, segments of the generation system will be shutdown. This segmental shutdown may then cause another problem of not meeting the instantaneous demand of the community. The Creation of energy demands in order to use up excess available energy is one of the alternative approaches to solving the problem of excess energy. The disease called diabetes is similar to some of the challenges with power generation. According to severally available studies, weight lifting and strength training is beneficial for reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes (Bonus video at end of post…).

The pancreas is a large digestive organ lying behind the stomach and across the back portion of the abdomen. Most parts of this large gland are busy with the normal processes of digestion through the pancreatic enzymes. But one small portion known as the “tail” of the pancreas has an entirely different function, for it belongs to the endocrine glandular system. It secretes two hormones, insulin and glucagon. Insulin has much to do with the metabolism of the body. It is produced in the beta cells. Glucagon is probably manufactured by the alpha cells of the pancreas. Insulin is the powerful hormone that aids the body in. storing nutriment, instead of allowing it to drain away in the urine.
Some people are unable to produce enough insulin to meet their own needs. Lacking sufficient insulin, their blood sugar or glucose rises to a high level, while the cells of the body do not receive their normal supply of nutriment. The excess glucose then spills over into the urine. This condition is known as diabetes. This disease is a strange, complex condition. Not only is the pancreas involved, but other organs, including the adrenals, pituitary, thyroid, and probably the liver. If it continues for a long time, the patient becomes weaker and may eventually die from malnutrition. The diabetic must therefore do one of two things. He must either cut down on the food he eats, or else provide the body with sufficient insulin to meet its needs.
Untreated high blood sugar from diabetes can damage your nerves, eyes, kidneys, and other organs.
There are a few different types of diabetes:
- Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease. The immune system attacks and destroys cells in the pancreas, where insulin is made. It’s unclear what causes this attack. About 10 percent of people with diabetes have this type.
- Type 2 diabetes occurs when your body becomes resistant to insulin, and sugar builds up in your blood.
- Prediabetes occurs when your blood sugar is higher than normal, but it’s not high enough for a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes.
- Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar during pregnancy. Insulin-blocking hormones produced by the placenta cause this type of diabetes.
There are available meal programmes which assist with combating the different forms of diabetes. That aspect will be discussed in subsequent posts on the subjects.
Here is a helpful video that links to a 12 part video series on natural meals that can reverse some diabetic conditions.
