What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a very hard thing to face. It can put your life in danger and can be very dangerous.Lots of people faint and also have to go to the hospital. People can keep it under control by eating the right foods and exercising. We all need sugar in our body to help us get energy but having to much is really bad and can make you sick.People with diabetes have too much sugar in their body which can be very dangerous.To much sugar can cause people to be weak and feel sick . Also there is no cure.
Some signs of diabetes are:
You may:
-be thirsty most of the time
-feel weak and tired
-be hungry most of the time
-lose weight even if you eat alot
-get scares on your skin and take along time to heal
-see that things look fuzzy or blurry
-have pain in your legs
The types of diabetes
There are 2 types of diabetes , there are type 1 & 2 diabetes. They both have a different problem in your body that gives you diabetes and they are not the same. They both do have to much sugar in the body but there are very important differences between the two. In both types of diabetes the body cells become staved for energy and symptoms develop.
What Is Type 1 Diabetes?
Type 1 diabetes used to be called juvenile diabetes because they mostly affect kids,teens and young adults but it can occur at any age.In type 1 diabetes the pancreas no longer produces insulin. This can be very dangerous.They can appear suddenly so you may feel fine one day then feel very sick the next day.This diabetes affects the way the body uses glucose. In type 1 diabetes there is no insulin to unlock the cell doors.Glucose gets locked out of the cells and builds up in the blood and if the glucose can't get into the cells the cells don't get the energy they need.
What Is type 2 diabetes?
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form. It mostly affects adults over the age of forty and some kids can also have them. In type 2 diabetes the pancreas does produce insulin however it does can not produce enough of it or the body can't use it properly.Also the body cells can't get energy from sugar. Doctors call it insulin resistance. This type of diabetes can take years to develop.This type of diabetes affects the way the body uses glucose. In type 2 diabetes insulin from the pancreas can't unlock the body's cells.Glucose gets locked out and builds up in the blood.If glucose can't get into the cells,the cells don't get the energy they need.
