Know what causes diabetes

Do you know what causes diabetes?  This dreaded disease occurs when the pancreas don't make enough or any insulin, or sometimes when the insulin produced does not work properly and effectively. When this happens, the body's level of glucose or sugar in the blood tends to become too high.

There are two type of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.  Type 1 occurs mostly in children though it can appear at any age.  It happens when the body does not produce insulin at all.  Type 2 is the most common form and occurs when the cells in the liver, muscles, and fat do not properly use the insulin our body produces.

Urinating often, always feeling thirsty, losing weight without any reason to be, having wounds and sores that heal very slowly, dry skin and blurry eyesight are diabetic symptoms.  It may help to have your blood sugar checked to know the severity of the case.  Your doc may recommend maintenance drugs to keep it at a level.

Diabetes is a disease that could lead to major complications of the heart, liver and kidney.  Once you have it; you have it for life but you can do something to lower your chances of getting it. By watching your diet and exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, and losing a little weight you lower your risk of developing diabetes.    I hope I was able to tell you a little about the diseases and what causes diabetes to help lower your risk of acquiring it.
