What are the different types of diabetes?

All types are chronic but manageable through medication and lifestyle alterations.

What is diabetes, and how does it affect the body?

Diabetes is a health condition that occurs when the body is unable to maintain healthy levels of glucose in the blood. The food we eat is broken down into nutrients such as glucose and absorbed from the digestive tract into the bloodstream.

Insulin is an essential hormone made by the pancreas that enables glucose to get into the cells of the body to be used for energy.

In diabetes, the body does not make enough insulin, or cannot effectively use the insulin it produces, which results in high blood glucose levels in the bloodstream.

Symptoms of diabetes:

Increased thirst

Frequent urination

Unintentional weight loss

Unexplained or constant tiredness

Blurred vision

Slow healing of wounds and cuts

Increased frequency of infections such as gum, skin and vaginal infections

Consistently high blood glucose can lead to other health problems such as eye problems, kidney damage, nerve damage and heart disease.

Diagnosing Diabetes

Diabetes diagnosis involves a doctor's assessment, including family and medical history, physical check-up, and various blood tests:

How does stress affect diabetes management?

Stress can cause glucose levels to go up and make it more difficult to control diabetes. Stress can also be a consequence of managing diabetes, stemming from the constant vigilance required in decision-making about food choices and monitoring blood glucose levels.
