About Diabetes Management

Diabetes, a chronic medical condition, affects the body's ability to regulate blood sugar (glucose) levels, crucial for energy and overall health. Insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, plays a central role in this process. In diabetes, either the body doesn't produce enough insulin (Type 1 diabetes) or becomes resistant to its effects (Type 2 diabetes), leading to abnormal blood sugar levels.

Type 1 diabetes is primarily diagnosed in childhood or adolescence and is an autoimmune disease. The immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas, leaving the body without sufficient insulin. As a result, people with Type 1 diabetes require insulin therapy to maintain normal blood sugar levels. Careful monitoring of blood glucose, consistent insulin injections, or using an insulin pump are vital components of Type 1 diabetes management. Properly managing carbohydrate intake is also essential to keep blood sugar levels stable.

Type 2 diabetes is more common and typically develops in adulthood, although it can also affect younger individuals. In this form of diabetes, the body becomes resistant to insulin, and the pancreas may not produce enough insulin to compensate. Type 2 diabetes is closely linked to lifestyle factors such as diet, physical activity, and body weight. Treatment may involve lifestyle modifications, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, and weight management. Some individuals may also require oral medications or insulin therapy to help control blood sugar levels effectively.
