There are 3 types of diabetes called type 1, type 2 and the pregnancy one but today we’re only going to talk about type 1 and type 2. Diabetes is a diagnosed when a person has too much glucose in the blood. It happens because the pancreas can’t make enough insulin. Glucose is previously stored in the liver.
The main similarities between type 1 and type 2 diabetes are that if you have either diseases, they both cause higher levels. I think they can both cause serious problems like a heart attack, stroke, blindness, kidney failure and nerve damage. I will just say this but they're obviously diabetes.
The difference between both diseases are that if you have type 1 diabetes you have for the rest of your life and have to cope with it. You have to take at least 4 injections a day. Now moving on to type 2. The pancreas gets more sluggish over time and you have to take medications recently or you will die.
Diabetics manage their illness by getting daily physical activity, eating a healthy diet and taking your medication. Looking after your body and keeping it healthy is probably the answer.
If you have a poor diet, if you’re overweight or a lack of exercise meaning like you’re lazy then you will probably get type 2 diabetes. Now family history. If like your grandparents or parents have diabetes when they were born you could have a better chance of getting type 2.
The main health risks are Heart attack, blindness, strokes, kidney failure and poor circulation. Poor circulation means that limbs can die.
