Diabetes is a disease in which your blood glucose, or blood sugar, levels are too high. Glucose comes from the foods you eat. Insulin is a hormone that helps the glucose get into your cells to give them energy. With type 1 diabetes, your body does not make insulin. With type 2 diabetes, the more common type, your body does not make or use insulin well. Without enough insulin, the glucose stays in your blood. You can also have prediabetes. This means that your blood sugar is higher than normal but not high enough to be called diabetes. Having prediabetes puts you at a higher risk of getting type 2 diabetes.
Over time, having too much glucose in your blood can cause serious problems. It can damage your eyes, kidneys, and nerves. Diabetes can also cause heart disease, stroke and even the need to remove a limb.

its just need to care about food and also depand which type of diabatic it must to known it

Doctors need to tell young diabetic patients about the risk of possible damages due to diabetes because many people need that fear to motivate them to do all the work needed to keep blood sugars under control. If you go searching about life expectancy and diabetes, you will find that manyn type 2 diabetics do die younger than other adults, but this is largely because of obesity. For the type 1 diabetic, obesity is rarely an issue. Twenty years ago, the prognosis for type 1 diabetics was not as good as it is today, for home blood glucose montoring was not possible, and the type 1 diabetic had to somewhat guess at his or her control, using only tests for glucose in urine to tell them whether blood sugar was high. This was not nearly as accurate as actual blood glucose monitoring, and so insulin and food amounts were sort of a best guess scenario

7 Dec 2015 17:04

However, now we have new insulins available and home glucose monitoring is accurate and dependable. Pumps are available for those who wish to use them, and lantus insulin is there as a new type that can provide a constant drip of insulin very much like what the normal pancreas does. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for a type 1 diabetic to not be able to tightly control blood glucose in this modern age and therefore protect themselves from the long-term damages.
