Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes
Diabetes describes several different conditions that result in high blood sugar levels, the most common of which are Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes is also known as insulin-dependent diabetes, and those with this type of disease have to regulate their blood sugar with injections of insulin. The cause of this type is unknown, but is suspected to be an autoimmune response following an environmental trigger. Type 2 Diabetes often does not require insulin therapy, but blood glucose levels must be carefully monitored. Type 2 Diabetes patients often benefit from increased exercise and carefully planned diet.
There are many potential complications from diabetes, no matter which type you have. It is important to see a doctor to help keep these symptoms and side effects in check. Some of the most common complications include neuropathy, loss of vision, heart disease, kidney failure, slow healing sores, frequent urination, and fatigue.
