What is diabetes?

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder(diseases) in which The body Cant’t use, store or utilize the sugar

Diabetes is a chronic, often debilitating and sometimes fatal disease, in which the body either cannot produce insulin or cannot properly use the insulin it produces.

 Insulin is one kind of a hormone that controls the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood. Diabetes leads to high blood sugar levels, which can damage organs, blood vessels and nerves. The body needs insulin to use sugar as an energy source.

What is type 1 diabetes?

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the immune system mistakenly  kills the beta cells of the pancreas. No, or very little, insulin is released into the body. As a result, sugar builds up in the blood instead of being used as energy. About five to 10 per cent of people with diabetes have type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes generally develops in childhood or adolescence, but it will develop in adulthood.

Type 1 diabetes is always treated with insulin. Meal planning always helps with keeping blood sugar at the right levels.

Type 1 diabetes also includes latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), the term used to describe the small number of people with apparent type 2 diabetes who appear to have immune-mediated loss of pancreatic beta cells.

 

What is type 2 diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body  does not make enough insulin. As a result, sugar builds up in the blood instead of being used as energy. More than 80 per cent of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes more often develops in adults, but children also can be affected.

Depending on the severity of type 2 diabetes, it may be managed through physical activity and meal planning, or may also require medications or insulin to control blood sugar more effectively.
