Disease- Diabetes

Diabetes is a disorder of metabolism - the way our bodies use digested food for growth and energy. There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2, and gestational diabetes.

~ Type 1 ~ requires lifelong treatment to keep blood sugar levels within a target range.~ Type 2 ~ take insulin~ Gestational ~ staying at a healthy weight, eating healthy, and not gaining too much weight during pregnancy.


What is it?

Type 1: You can inherit a tendency to develop type 1 diabetes, but most people who have the disease have no family history of it.Type 2: diseases that involve problems with the hormone insulin. Obesity and lack of physical activity are two of the most common causes (not everyone with type 2 is overweight)Gestational diabetes: high blood sugar that you get only when you're pregnant.







~ Type 1 ~ usually develop quickly, over a few days to weeks, and are caused by blood sugar levels rising above the normal range (hyperglycemia). ~ Type 2 ~ can cause serious health complications. ~ Gestational ~ condition characterized by high blood sugar (glucose) levels that is first recognized during pregnancy. Occurs in approximately 4% of all pregnancies.
