Diabetes is a condition in which the human body stops producing or fails to properly use insulin which is a hormone that is required to convert food into energy. The three main types of diabetes – type 1, type 2 and gestational are all defined as metabolic disorders that affect the way the body uses digested food to make glucose.

  • What is juvenile diabetes?

    Juvenile diabetes or Type 1 diabetes occurs when your immune system destroys cells in your pancreas called beta cells that produce insulin. Glucose doesn’t move into your blood cells because insulin is not present.

  • How is juvenile diabetes diagnosed?

    Several blood tests, such as random sugar tests and A1C tests, are done to diagnose Type 1 diabetes accurately.

  • What are the symptoms of Juvenile diabetes?

    The lack of insulin causes the glucose to build up in your blood, and the cells starve, which leads to high blood sugar levels that may lead to:

    • Dehydration occurs due to excess sugar content in the blood, which makes the patient urinate more.
    • Weight loss is also a side effect of high sugar levels
    • Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)is the combination of extra glucose, dehydration, and acid build-up
    • Damage to your body, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
  • How is Juvenile diabetes treated?

    Treatment is unluckily lifelong and includes regular blood tests and insulin therapy. Patients may be advised to exercise regularly to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

  • How is type 2 diabetes diagnosed?

    Type 2 diabetes is diagnosed mainly using the A1C test, which indicates average blood sugar levels in a given amount of time.

  • What are the symptoms of type 2 diabetes?

    Symptoms include:

    • Being very thirsty
    • Peeing
    • Blurry vision
    • Being cranky
  • How is type 2 diabetes treated?

    Type 2 diabetes can be kept in check by being physically active. The diabetologist might suggest insulin therapy to maintain proper insulin levels.

  • What are the different types of diabetes?
    • Type 1 diabetes: Type 1 diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes, occurs when your immune system destroys cells in your pancreas called beta cells that produce insulin. Glucose doesn’t move into your blood cells because insulin is not present.
    • Type 2 diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is a lifelong disease that keeps your body from using insulin properly. Your pancreas makes a hormone called insulin, but in type 2 diabetes, the patient’s blood cells don’t use it as well as they should. Your body either resists the effects of insulin or doesn’t produce enough insulin to maintain normal glucose levels. People with type 2 diabetes are insulin resistant.
