World Diabetes Day: a Guide to Understanding the Disease and its Treatment

World Diabetes Day falls every year on November 14th

Diabetes is a life-long disease that affects the way your body handles sugars. There are two major types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2. Type 1 diabetes typically starts in childhood, while Type 2 diabetes usually develops later in adulthood and can sometimes be reversed with lifestyle changes.

Diabetes mellitus – how to recognize the disease? The causes of diabetes

Diabetes mellitus is a condition that develops when the pancreas cannot produce enough insulin, or your body cannot use insulin properly. It may also occur if your body does not produce any insulin. Diabetes mellitus has many possible causes, including genetics and having too little exercise or dietary fiber.

There are three main types of diabetes: diabetes mellitus, diabetes insipidus, and diabetes mellitus ketosis.

Type Diabetes

Type One Diabetes: Type one diabetes is an autoimmune disorder in which the cells of your pancreas no longer produce insulin. When this happens, sugar cannot be converted into energy and stored as fat or used for cellular functions. This means that blood sugar levels will continue to rise unchecked until something changes–either a new treatment becomes available or through other natural methods like dieting and exercise.

Type Two Diabetes: Type two diabetes occurs when our bodies do not use insulin properly (or at all), so we need injections to keep it regulated within healthy limits. The condition usually develops later in life due to lifestyle factors such as weight gain, low physical activity levels, high carbohydrate diets etc., but can sometimes be reversed with change! With regular insulin shots and a healthy diet, Type two diabetes can be managed.

The main goal of treatment for both types of diabetes is to keep blood sugar levels as close to normal as possible without causing low or high spikes in glucose levels. That being said, there are many ways that people with type two diabetes can manage their condition through diet and exercise! Eating foods lower on the glycemic index will help regulate your cravings throughout the day, while working out regularly will increase muscle mass which helps maintain a steady energy level when you’re feeling tired. There’s nothing like getting into shape together!
