Well to make it easy there are just really three types of diabetes out there and here I will tell you about them along with info graphs for your viewing pleasure.
To start the three types of diabetes out there are as follow:
- Type 1
- Type 2
These types of diabetes are the most common referred to cause there is one more prediabetes but again thats just like the anticipation of the disease. In any cause type 1 diabetes and type 2 seem as if there very different but in reality there not that much the fundamental reason for the metabolic disease is the blood glucose levels regulated by the insulin or that the lack of.
Type 1 Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes has a couple of names to it so you can distinguish it even if its used differently. The names include: Juvenile Diabetes and Insulin-Dependent Diabetes. It is mostly developed in younger adults however can also develop in full grown adults. So essentially in type 1 diabetes your body stops producing or does not produce enough insulin. This is result of your immune system attacking and destroying the insulin producing cells in your body.
Bottom line: Your body has stopped or can’t make enough blood sugar controlling insulin.
Type 2 Diabetes
Type 2 diabetes also has a couple of names that is goes by. The names include: Adult-Onset Diabetes and Non Insulin-Dependent Diabetes. This is the most common for of diabetes out there. Even though its called adult on set it still can happen at any age even early childhood – but mostly adult and older age. So essentially, your body does not produce enough insulin and eventually the fat, muscle and liver cells can not process the insulin causing then to not work properly and leading to serious health problems over time.
Bottom line: Your body can not process the small of blood sugar controlling insulin if any to provide you with energy overtime causing serious health problems.
Gestational Diabetes is simply a ending pregnancy diabetes. In a nutshell during the end of the pregnancy some women have a shortage of insulin and/or from the hormones of pregnancy that can cause this. It usually ends after the baby is born but now theres high risk for both mother and baby to develop diabetes later in life.So in a nutshell you can always refer back to the info graph on the -whats diabetes- page of this site if you want to know the basics again. You can find more about gestational diabetes here.
Bottom line: When pregnant there may be a time at time end that the blood sugar controlling insulin lowers.
