Blurry eyesight Causes of Diabetes: Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or sugar, levels are too high. With type 1, the pancreas is not making insulin due to destruction by the immune system. body does not produce insulin
body does not use insulin well
usually genetic Insulin= a hormone that helps glucose get into body cells to give them energy In type 2, the insulin produced is not of a good quality, or there is not enough. Treatment of Type 1 Some people may even have to give themselves an insulin shot. Pancreas= an organ in the abdomen, responsible for producing important hormones, such as insulin Treatment of Type 2 affects 25.8 million people
18.8 million people had been diagnosed
7 million people undiagnosed
1 in every 400 children has diabetes
35%- 60% of women who have had gestational diabetes will develop diabetes in the next 10- 20 years
$174 million = total costs for treatment 2010 U.S. Statistics: For Type 2, one can control it with diet and exercise, as well as newer medicines such as Byetta* What info. was most interesting/ surprising? How does Diabetes connect to Life Management Skills class? How does Diabetes affect the health of teens? Why did we pick Diabetes? no insulin = high blood glucose = diabetes
major cause for heart disease and stroke
may occur during pregnancy(gestational diabetes) blood glucose checks = feeling discouraged/ guilty = no effort to manage diabetes
feeling different from peers
demands from parents = feeling stress = involve in risk-taking behaviors
yearning to maintain body image
certain limits- ex. not allowed to drive car until able to maintain a reasonable blood sugar level Blood Glucose Test: We picked Diabetes as our topic because Scott's mother has type 2 diabetes and we feel that having knowledge about diabetes, including how to keep blood sugar levels under control can prevent health problems later in life. *Byetta is synthetic Gila Monster saliva. Tests have shown that the Gila Monster can go many months without eating yet their blood sugar dropping significantly. This is due to a regulatory enzyme found in their saliva. Pharmacists have developed a synthetic substance with the enzyme. It comes in a pen like some insulin and is injected subcutaneously. Diabetes- Works Cited
