Focus Over Fear – Diabetes

Diabetes: – Do you know what to do?

Diabetes falls into two categories; type 1 and type 2, both can be managed but there is currently no cure. Medication, lifestyle changes and regular monitoring of the blood sugar level can help keep the symptoms under control. But what are the symptoms?

Well some of the main symptoms are:

  • Feelngs of thirst.
  • Passing urine more frequently (particularly at night)
  • Feeling fatigued
  • Weight loss (usually associated with type 1 diabetes)
Although the symptoms are similar, type 1 diabetes is often hereditary (the immune system attacks the pancreas stopping insulin production) whereas type 2 diabetes occurs when the pancreas no longer produces sufficient insulin. Changes to lifestyle including weight loss, exercise and balanced diet can help eleviate symptoms.
