There are two types of diabetes, referred to as type one and type two. Type one diabetes can occur at any age, sex, shape or size of a person. “In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. The body breaks down the carbohydrates you eat into blood sugar (blood glucose) that it uses for energy—and insulin is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body” (Diabetes Overview). It is important to note that this type of diabetes can be easily managed with living a healthy lifestyle of eating right and exercising, of course along with insulin therapies or other treatments anyone with type 1 diabetes can live a very “normal” life. Type two diabetes on the other hand is different, it is the most common form of diabetes, type 2 means that your body isn’t using insulin properly. “type 2 diabetes is an impairment in the way the body regulates and uses sugar (glucose) as a fuel. This long-term (chronic) condition results in too much sugar circulating in the bloodstream. Eventually, high blood sugar levels can lead to disorders of the circulatory, nervous and immune systems” (Mayo Foundation for Medical and Educational Research).

A few lifestyle changes that can cause type 2 diabetes to creep up on someone can be summed up in a persons activity level and how they are eating. The lack of exercise can really effect insulin levels and eating a high fat diet on top of that can just be an open invitation for type 2 diabetes. This is a great reason why doctors are always trying to urge people to exercise, even walk 30 minutes a day and eat healthier. As much as we may not want to admit it the food we put into our bodies really does affect us in  the long run.

As I stated above and the department of health and human services has also stated that if you are over weight you need to  lose weight and keep it off, be active at least 5 days out of the week for at least 30 minutes a day and eating healthier foods that are low in fat, smaller portions and switching out sugary drinks such as juice and soda for water. All  of these lifestyle choices are changeable and can help prevent a person from getting type 2 diabetes. It is important to make sure that children grow up with a  healthier lifestyle mindset instead of falling into bad habits at such a young age. When that happens it is much harder to break those habits further down the road.

There are two types of diabetes mellitus. There is type 1 and type 2. Both are chronic disease that regulates blood sugar(glucose). Type 1 doesn’t produce insulin. Their immune system mistakes the body’s healthy cells for foreign invaders. It destroys the insulin producing beta cells in their pancreas. Type 2 doesn’t respond to insulin as well and don’t make enough insulin. Your pancreas try to compensate by producing more insulin. That makes your blood unable to use insulin, the glucose goes in your bloodstream. People with type 2 diabetes won’t show or have symptoms for years. They don’t realize they have the condition until they have complications with their health. People with type 1 diabetes develop quickly, this type develops overtime from childhood. Type 2 diabetes is much more common than type 1 diabetes. Some treatments available are injections into the soft tissue like the belly area, arm, or buttocks through out the day. Blood sugar testing is essential part to manage type 1 diabetes. The blood sugar levels go up and down quickly depending on what you eat. While type 2 diabetes can be manage/reversed, if you have a good diet and exercise daily. Medication usually help with your body’s use of insulin more effectively. Back in ancient times diabetes was treated differently, it was called “starvation diet”. Diets were based on repeated fasting and under nourishment. Fasting reduced glucose levels, but prolonged calorie-restricted diets. Risk of getting diabetes is eating unhealthy and not being active on a daily. Also having it in your family history can increase your risk of getting diabetes. Having high blood pressure is also a risk. People with diabetes urinate so much because your kidneys are forced to work overtime to filter the excess glucose. When your kidneys can’t keep up, the excess glucose excreted into your urine which take the fluids from your tissue then you get dehydrated. Another problem people with diabetes lose so much weight due to insufficient insulin prevents the body from getting sugar from the blood to the body’s cells to get energy. That is when the body burns fat and muscle for energy. We can reduce diabetes mellitus in the US by eating and exercising right especially daily, reduce stress and stay hydrated. Over all quit sodas and sugar or limit the intake. Especially with our children. Diabetes insipidus causes imbalance of fluids in the body and leads you to produce large amount of urine and makes you very thirsty.
