The young dynamic Hollywood actress “Halle Berry” collapsed on set and was immediately rushed to the hospital, where she lay dangerously ill in a diabetic coma for a week before she opened her eyes to a totally new life with new challenges to face. She says that none of her family members had suffered from this disease.
Type 2 diabetes can take years to develop. With symptoms like: tiredness, blurred vision, weight loss, raging thirst, genital itching and tingling in the hands and feet.
Although her pancreas was still producing some insulin, yet it was less than her body required.
Doctors told Halle berry that she might lose her eyes sight or even both of her legs. These comments scared her to death.
Due to excess sugar in the body, diabetics can suffer kidney failure, have a five times higher risk of developing heart disease and 80% of people with diabetes die from cardiovascular complication. In diabetes, blindness is caused by a condition called retinopathy, in which the blood vessels in the retina become blocked, leaky or even start going haphazardly.
According to Halle Berry (Bond Girl, Cat Woman, Oscar wining role in the film “Monster`s Ball),” I went to hospital on my last breath, and come out feeling a hundred times better. I knew it was time to take better care of myself”.
