Types of Diabetes This is the first in a series of articles to discuss a healthy lifestyle leading to reducing the impact of diabetes or at least prevent having diabetes, 360wellnesslab is designed to promote personal wellness and provides a variety of series of related articles on required topics ranging from environmental wellness to financial stability to physical wellness toward a happy, healthy life. Diabetes or Diabetes mellitus is a state where the blood sugar shoots up or the glucose level is higher than normal. A person suffering from diabetes may be experiencing frequent urination, usually hungry or thirsty. High blood glucose is usually caused by inadequate insulin supply or the body is not responding to insulin at all. TYPES of DIABETES 1. TYPE 1 Diabetes Type 1 diabetes is common among teenagers, young adult or those before approaching 40 years old. Type 1 diabetes is also called juvenile diabetes. This is also a group of people who are insulin dependent or simply would inject insulin for the rest of their life. It is also prescribed by doctors that a person who suffers from Type 1 diabetes must bring blood test equipment with them all the time. 2. TYPE 2 Diabetes Type 2 diabetes is a state when the body is not reacting to insulin, also called insulin resistance. This type of diabetes can be controlled by losing weight, proper diet, plenty of exercise and close monitoring the glucose level. If not monitored closely, a type 2 diabetes may lead to type 1 diabetes where in a person will become insulin dependent. Those who are obese and overweight are at high risk of having this type of diabetes. Belly fat and even unwanted fats in the body releases chemicals that will cause cardiovascular diseases and problems with metabolism. 3. Gestational Diabetes The gestational diabetes is diabetes that happens during pregnancy. If the mother is not closely monitoring her diet, high glucose level may happen during pregnancy and may lead to diabetes. Gestational diabetes may lead to complications during childbirth, both to the baby and the mother. Gestational diabetes can only be diagnosed during pregnancy.

Regardless of what type of diabetes you are concerned about, everything can be prevented by having proper diet, exercise or simple by just taking good care of your health. In fact, even those people who are suffering from diabetes, always include diet, exercise and food supplements to maintain a normal glucose level or even at least diminish the impact of high glucose level to their body system. Unfortunately, diabetes are not only present among teens, young adult and adult but even to babies. Just like the third type of diabetes – Gestational diabetes. Life is difficult for these children because they can’t eat the food they love or even drink their favorite juices because of the sugar in it. This is another reason why women should always make sure that their glucose level are at normal level so as to prevent Gestational diabetes to occur during their pregnancy. The risk will not only impact their children but even them – the mothers. Researches in the past conducted a lab test on mouse. Mouse A has normal testosterone level while mouse B has lower testosterone level. The research showed that a lower testosterone level may put the mouse at risk to insulin resistance. Thus, in men who are older and who have low testosterone levels have greater risk of having diabetes than younger men and those men who have normal testosterone levels. A doctor in the University of Edinburgh’s Endocrinology unit – Dr. Kerry Mclnnes – said that men who have low testosterone are really at risk of having diabetes and regardless of age. People nowadays should always be conscious about their health. These types of diabetes can be prevented by proper food intake, plenty of exercise and even by taking trusted food supplements. There are people who are suffering from diabetes but are able to maintain a better glucose level by practicing those methods mentioned above – diet, exercise and food supplements. Do not attempt to delay your health program as time is infinite in terms of when to have or not to have a problem with your glucose level. It is even best to start a support group who will help you succeed with your diet and exercise plan. There is no best time to start a health plan or program but Now.
