Transcript of Diabetes

What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a disease that stops your body from transforming glucose (sugar) to energy.

There are two types of diabetes, type 1 is when your pancreas isn't producing any insulin and type 2 is where your cells aren't reacting to it properly. Both types of diabetes are life threatening

Type 2
How Does it Affect the Body?
Both types of diabetes are treatable. Type 1 has no known cure but you will have to take regular insulin shots to help, whereas type 2 can last your whole life but some people manage it by doing a lot of exercise, having a healthy diet and a good body weight control to get rid of the symptoms with no use of medication.
Type 1 Diabetes Videos/Games/Facts
If you have diabetes you wouldn't be able to get much energy because insulin helps the glucose transform into energy and without insulin you wouldn't get a lot of energy, which makes you tired and makes you not want to do anything, which increases risks.

Having too much or too less glucose can make your eyesight worse and can also damage your heart, blood vessels, kidneys, brain and nerves.

Anyone can get diabetes, even children, it causes more than 70,000 deaths each year.

People with diabetes are at greater risk of heart attacks, strokes, blindness and blood vessel damage.

You have a greater risk at dying/getting diabetes if you are obese or live an inactive lifestyle. Risk increases with age

In my spare time I don't think I would ever research diabetes because it's not really a topic I would get into, but I'm glad I researched about it.
