develop over time? What are the symptoms
of Diabetes? How is the nervous system affected by Diabetes? How are the skin and feet affected by Diabetes? How does Diabetes affect the excretory system? Interesting facts on Diabetes! A.K.A. Diabetes Mellitus - A lifelong metabolic disease:
large amounts of glucose in a person's blood (not transferred into cells)
Type 1:
Usually in children
Pancreas unable to produce insulin
10% of diabetic patients

Type 2:
In adulthood
Not enough production or use of insulin
90% of diabetic patients

During pregnancy
Mother and child at risk of Type 1 or 2
2% - 4% of all pregnancies Type 1 Diabetes:
- Rapidly , Suddently
Type 2 Diabetes :
- Over a long period of time The Symptoms of Type 1 Diabetes are:
- Fatigue
-Excessive Weight Loss
The Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes are :
- Urinate Frequently
- Thirst
- Burred Vision Diabetes, specifically Type 1, causes constant urination. Diabetic neuropathies: Nerve damage affects
digestive, circulatory and reproductive systems
60% - 70% of diabetic patients

High, uncontrolled levels of blood glucose, fat and
pressure over long time causes:
damage to blood vessels (blood clot & plaque build up)
inflammation in nerves

Overexposure to blood glucose damages nerves (less
signals to & from brain), narrows and blocks blood vessels

Hence cuts, bruises, poor blood circulation may go unnoticed by brain causing:
More proneness to bacterial & fungal infections
Scaly and darkened patches of skin
Thin, hairless, shiny and dry skin
Discoloration: orange yellow around eyes, shin or elbows
Skin may degrade and break open bleeding Presentation by: Jizelle, Raina, and Roslyn How does Diabetes develop? Is Diabetes more common in certain ethnic groups? Is Diabetes genetically

affect Diabetes? People who have diabetes need to control the amount of sugar they bring into their body. Lifestyle choices affect those at risk of diabetes AND those who have diabetes. How is the eye affected by Diabetes? The excretory system is responsible for filtering waste products in our body and releasing them in the form of urine. The earliest record of a disease that is likely to be diabetes was in 1500 B.C
