Diabetes is a disease that occurs when your blood glucose or sugar is high. Blood sugar is your main source of energy and it’s gotten from the food you eat.

An organ called the pancreas produces insulin which helps the glucose gotten from food to get to the cells for energy. Diabetes occurs either when your pancreas cannot produce enough insulin or the body cannot effectively use the insulin produced.

Uncontrolled diabetes overtime leads to damage of many tissues, especially nerves and blood vessels. There are type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes.

Type 1 Diabetes

This type of diabetes is called insulin dependent or childhood onset diabetes. A child can be born with this type 1 diabetes. With this type of diabetes, there is deficient insulin production. Hence, the glucose will remain in your blood without getting to the cells to use as energy. This type of diabetes has no cure.

Treatment of type one (1) diabetes focuses on managing blood sugar levels with insulin, diet and lifestyle to prevent complications.

Type 2 diabetes

This occurs when the body cells do not respond to insulin as they should or the pancreas produces less insulin . When this happens, there will be a build up of glucose in your blood and your body cells will be deprived of energy.

Risk factors of type two (2) diabetes

1 . Obesity

2 . Inactive

3 . High fat and carbohydrate diet

4 . Sedentary lifestyle

5 . High blood pressure

6 . Old age
