Type 1 Diabetes
is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease.
Type 1 diabetes
is a chronic condition in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Treatment focuses on managing blood sugar levels with insulin, diet, and lifestyle changes.
is a hormone that the body needs to get glucose from the bloodstream into the cells of the body.
In type 2 diabetes,
your cells respond poorly to insulin and take in less sugar, a condition known as “insulin resistance.” This can lead to hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar levels.
If hyperglycemia is not properly managed,
it can lead to complications, such as heart disease and stroke, blindness, kidney disease, and nerve damage.
