• Diabetes

    A Diabetes diagnosis can be quite alarming and devastating…if you let it. The truth is that diabetics can live virtually normal lives once they figure out how to manage their condition properly and make the necessary lifestyle changes.

    There are actually 3 diabetes types, Type 1 or Diabetes Mellitus which usually occurs in childhood, Type 2 also known as adult onset diabetes and the third, known as Gestational Diabetes, which only pregnant women get.

    This last type, while very important that it be carefully monitored during the pregnancy, usually disappears once gestation is over and your baby is born. It is also important to note that because you may have gestational diabetes this does NOT mean that your baby will be born a diabetic.

    Facts on diabetes – According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 21 million people in the United States have diabetes, with about 90 to 95% having type 2 diabetes. If diabetes is not properly controlled, the consequences can be life-threatening.

    The major organ connected with diabetes is the pancreas. The pancreas is a large organ that is part of your digestive and endocrine systems. The pancreas is a vital organ which performs very important functions within your body. It produces digestive juices and enzymes to help digest fats, proteins, and carbohydrates.

    It also produces sodium bicarbonate, which helps to neutralize your stomach acids. The pancreas also produces the hormone insulin, along with a variety of other hormones. Insulin is what helps to control your body’s normal blood sugar levels.

    Sugar, in the form of glucose, is the main source of fuel for body cells.

    As your blood sugar rises, insulin is secreted from the pancreas and it causes your muscles and other bodily tissues to absorb the glucose from your blood to fuel their activity. Insulin also promotes the absorption of glucose into the liver, where it is stored as glycogen for use in response to stress or exercise.

    In type 2 diabetes, either your body does not produce enough insulin or your cells are resistant to the effects of insulin.
