Type 2 Diabetes Q & A
What is diabetes?
Diabetes is a serious condition that affects how your body processes and uses blood sugar, also called glucose. You need glucose for energy and to help your body function properly.
When you have diabetes, your pancreas either produces too little insulin or struggles to process the insulin it produces, which causes sugar to accrue in your blood. Diabetes can cause vision loss, neuropathy, heart disease, kidney failure, skin conditions, stroke, high blood pressure, and foot ulcers.
What are the types of diabetes?
While Dr. Helen focuses her expert care on treating and managing Type 2 Diabetes, it’s important to be familiar with the other types as well. There are three types of diabetes. They are:
Formerly known as Juvenile Diabetes, Type 1 Diabetes is usually diagnosed in children or adolescents. With Type 1, your body doesn’t produce enough insulin. This is an autoimmune disorder that must be managed with insulin.
During Type 2 Diabetes, you can produce some insulin, but it’s not adequate to sweep all the sugar from your blood. This type of diabetes is most common in adults and is almost always preventable through diet and lifestyle changes.
Hormonal fluctuations cause temporary diabetes in some pregnant women. The condition is known as Gestational Diabetes. It almost always resolves on its own after childbirth.
What are the symptoms of diabetes?
Some of the telltale signs of diabetes are:
- Excessive thirst
- Frequent urination
- Constant hunger
- Itchy skin
- Dry mouth
- Slow healing sores
- Numbness in fingers and toes
- Blurry vision
- Recurrent infections
Of course, these symptoms can be linked to a number of different conditions that may or may not be related to diabetes. It’s important to check with Dr. Helen if your symptoms persist.
