All You Need to know
By: Patricia Ndombe What Is Diabetes?

Well, I'm glad you asked...

Diabetes is often referred as "Diabetus
Mellitus". It describes a person that has
a high blood sugar. What Causes Diabetes?

Well, diabetes is formed when either
insulin production is unbeneficial or
because the body's cells don't make enough
sugar. Insulin may help, but it may not be
enough for your body's cells to function. Types of Diabetes

There are 3 types of diabetes
that can occur to anyone:

-Type 1 Diabetes
-Type 2 Diabetes
-Gestational Diabetes

Let's talk about each three. But first, let's watch this video..
*Video is 3 minutes long* So, you want to learn about
the first type of diabetes, huh?

The first type of diabetes we'll talk about
is Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is when the body doesn't
produce insulin. Some names for this type is:
~insulin-dependant diabetes
~juvenile diabetes
~early-onset diabetes

People devolop this before they turn 40 years old. It's not as nowhere near as common as type 2.
People that have this usually need to take insulin for the rest of their lives. Between 2001-2009 the diabetes in teens have risen to 23%. Type 2 Diabetes
Cells in the body don't know or can't respond to insulin in their surroundings to use for their benefit.
Almost 90% of the people that have diabetes have this type.
Some are able to control this but it is a progressive disease.
Overweight people have their attendance as a chance of having it at a greater risk.
The risk also increases as you get older.
Also men with low testosterone levels have a risk for this disesase. Gestational Diabetes

This type of diabetes affects women during their pregnancy. They have very high levels of glucose so that they can't make insulin anymore. It usually happens to women in their 24th week of pregnancy.

Scientists currently don't know what causes gestiational diabetes.

During a woman's pregnancy, their placenta (supports the baby's head) is invaded by hormones and it blocks the insulin transported from the mother's body to the baby's. A happy, healthy mother
makes a happy, healthy
baby! Treatments

For people with type 1 diabetes, their treatments are insulin, excercise, and a diabetic diet.
For people with type 2 diabetes, their treatments are weight reducement, a diabetic diet and excercise.
For people with gestational diabetes, their treatments are applying insulin, checking their fetal growth, and eating a balanced diet. We all know it hurts but
it's worth the while.
Shots do scare us all! For all of you out there...

Don't worry...you're not alone.
As of 2011, the American Diabetes Association says that...

~8.3% of the 25.8 million Americans have diabetes
~18.8 million people have been diagnosed
~7 million people haven't been diagnosed
~79 million people have prediabetes...we'll talk about prediabetes later
~1.9 million new cases are reported in humans 20 and older. So, are you wondering about prediabetes now, huh? Well...

Prediabetes is when your blood glucose levels are higher than normal but aren't high enough yet to be called diabetes. People with type 2 diabetes usually have prediabetes before they're diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. New Technology Advancments for Diabetes

We all know people are annoyed and tired of pricking their fingertips with meters. But there are new ways of testing your blood sugar levels without pricking your fingers This Diabetes prezi was brought to you by... The American Diabetes Association and Patricia Ndombe... I hope you enjoyed this presentation... ...and thanks for watching! :)
