Diabetes, a chronic metabolic disorder, comes in two primary forms – Type I and Type II. Both conditions affect the body’s ability to regulate blood sugar levels, but they differ in their causes, symptoms, and treatment approaches. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the intricacies of Type I and Type II to empower individuals with knowledge about managing these conditions.
Type I Diabetes:
Type I diabetes is an autoimmune condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. This results in little to no insulin production, necessitating insulin injections for blood sugar regulation.
- Genetic predisposition.
- Environmental factors triggering immune response.
- Excessive thirst and hunger.
- Frequent urination.
- Unexplained weight loss.
Type II Diabetes:
Type II diabetes occurs when the body becomes resistant to insulin or fails to produce enough insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Lifestyle factors play a significant role in its development.
- Sedentary lifestyle.
- Poor diet.
- Increased thirst and hunger.
- Frequent urination.
- Blurred vision.
- Insulin therapy.
- Continuous glucose monitoring.
- Oral medications.
- Insulin therapy if necessary.
- Lifestyle modifications (diet, exercise).
