Effects and Types of diabetes

 

There are different types of diabetes, all types are complex and serious. The three main types of diabetes are:

1. Type 1 – Type 1 diabetes is an auto-immune condition in which the immune system is activated to destroy the cells in the pancreas which produce insulin. Symptoms of Type 1 diabetes

  • Low body temperature
  • Weight loss—despite eating more
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Rapid heart rate

2. Type 2 – A chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar. Symptoms of Type 2 diabetes

  • Blurred vision
  • Unusual thirst
  • Extreme hunger
  • Recurring urination
  • Cuts or bruises that are slow to heal
  • Recurring infections
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Irritability

3. Gestational diabetes – Gestational diabetes mellitus (sometimes referred to as GDM) is a form of diabetes that occurs during pregnancy and usually goes away after the baby is born. It is diagnosed when higher than normal blood glucose levels first appear during pregnancy.

  • Dry mouth
  • Very thirsty
  • Feel tired
  • Recurring infections
  • Blurred vision

In type 1 diabetes, symptoms are often sudden and can be life-threatening; therefore it is usually diagnosed quite quickly. In type 2 diabetes, many people have no symptoms at all, and most of signs can go unnoticed being seen as part of getting older.
