Diabetes In Simple Terms

Diabetes explained

Diabetes is a growing problem in this country. With our population at an all time high in weight gain and a low in health care, the problem is only growing.

Diabetes is a disease of the metabolism. Our metabolism is the way our bodies use digested food for energy and growth.

Blood Glucose

Most food that is processed through our bodies is broken down by digestive juices into a sugar called glucose.

Glucose is the fuel our bodies run on.

When we eat, and our food is processed, the pancreas is supposed to help regulate the amount of glucose in our blood by releasing the right amount of insulin.

In people with diabetes, little to no insulin is produced or the body’s cells don’t respond correctly to the insulin that is produced. Therefore the glucose builds up in the bloodstream and you end up with high blood sugar.  One solution to this is to learn how to jumpstart your pancreas.

Diabetic Types

There are three types of diabetes, type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. People who have type 1 are known as insulin-dependent.

This is an autoimmune disease where the body’s natural system is fighting against another part of the body. In the case of type 1 diabetes, the system attacks the insulin producing cells and destroys them.

Therefore the pancreas can produce little to no insulin.

These people are in need of daily injections of insulin to live. Five to ten percent of diabetes cases are type 1 in the US.
