Diabetes

& Weight Loss

Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects how the body uses blood sugar for energy. When you eat, your body breaks down food into sugar, also called glucose. Your pancreas then releases insulin, which allows glucose to enter the cells and be used for energy. With diabetes, this process doesn’t work properly.

Diabetes affects 29 million Americans and over 380 million people all over the globe. There are two different types of diabetes: Type 1 and Type 2.

Type 1 diabetes: This is the more severe form of diabetes. It’s sometimes referred to as “juvenile” diabetes, because it usually develops in children and teenagers, though it can begin at any age.

With type 1 diabetes, your body’s immune system attacks its own pancreas, destroying insulin-producing cells it sees as foreign. Without insulin to help glucose move into the body’s cells, blood sugar rises, and cells don’t get the energy they need. If left untreated, high blood sugar levels pose grave health risks.

Type 2 diabetes: This is sometimes called “adult onset” diabetes, since it usually develops in people over age 35. It’s often found in people who are overweight. People with type 2 diabetes are able to produce some, but not enough, of their own insulin. In addition, their cells become resistant to insulin, so sugar can’t get in, and builds up in the blood.
