Diabetes Q&A

What is diabetes? 

Diabetes is a chronic condition that impacts how your body processes glucose, the primary fuel source for every process of your body. 

A hormone produced by the pancreas called insulin metabolizes the glucose consumed in the foods that you eat and delivers it to your cells, tissues, and organs as needed. 

With diabetes, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin for your body’s needs or fails to use it properly. Your body may not make enough insulin because the pancreas is damaged or because the demands from your body for insulin are too high. 

A shortage of insulin prevents glucose from being used, and glucose accumulates in the blood, causing high blood sugar. Chronically high blood sugar damages and impairs every system of the body. Over time, this damage can lead to severe complications. 

What are type 1 and type 2 diabetes?

Type 1 and type 2 diabetes are the two main types of diabetes. They differ in how much insulin the body naturally produces. 

With type 1 diabetes, your insulin production is nonexistent or minimal. 

With type 2 diabetes, your insulin production is inadequate for what your body needs.

Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition most often treated with a diabetic diet, medications, and synthetic insulin. 

Type 2 diabetes frequently occurs due to obesity, an unhealthy diet, or a generally unhealthy lifestyle. It may be improved or treated effectively with a diabetic diet, medications, and weight loss.

What are the complications of diabetes?

Diabetes damages cells, tissues, and organs and impairs the work of every system of the body. This places diabetic patients at high risk for severe health conditions, including: 

  • Heart and vascular disease
  • Kidney disease 
  • Blood clots and stroke
  • Retinopathy, which may cause blindness
  • Neuropathy, or nerve damage 
  • Weakened immune system
  • Slow-healing wounds or injuries
  • Hearing impairment
  • Skin or other infections

The team at Maniya Health monitors your risks and watches carefully for signs of diabetic complications as part of your ongoing diabetic management.
