Diabetes Awareness

Diabetes Awareness

There are 2 types of diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes.

In Type 1 Diabetes, the body makes little or no insulin, and insulin must be given by injection. Type 1 diabetes is commonly called Juvenile Diabetes, and requires insulin injections 3 - 4 times a day for life. I am type 1 diabetic and give 4 insulin injections a day.

Type 2 diabetes, the most common type of diabetes, occurs when the body makes insulin, but the cells cannot use it properly. It most often occurs in over-weight people aged over 40 years that have a family history of diabetes.

The major problem with diabetes, is many diabetics aren’t aware they have it. Often significant damage is done before diabetes is diagnosed.
