Warning: This is not 100% right as we are only writing what we know about Diabetes.
'What I know about Diabetes'
I am Lana Poila, a year 13 student at Tamaki College, and today Ms Wells plan's for us is to write 'what we know about Diabetes.' Because I did not do this in year 11 so I do not have a lot of knowledge about diabetes. However I know someone who have diabetes meaning I only know the process of what they do, to take care of the disease(not sure if you can call diabetes a disease). Example what they to eat. Anyway if I'm lacking some knowledge feel free to comment as I want to know more about this topic 'DIABETES'
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is when someone have way to much glucose(blood) in their blood.
Where does it start? Everyone need to eat right, so when you eat your body turns food into glucose(sugars) in this case this is when your pancreas supposedly releases this hormone called 'insulin. Insulin's role is to regulates the amount of glucose in your cells, this is really important because with the lack of insulin in your body formed diabetes.
Okay don't judge me with how I explain these two type of diabetes because I am only writing what we have learn in class today.
Type 1 Diabetes: Type 1 diabetes is what your born with meaning it can't be prevented however will be manageable through a combination of medication, healthy food choices and exercise. This is because the body attack or mistakenly sees the insulin producing cells as foreign, and destroy them. Without insulin there is no key to open up the cells this means the cells will get hungry or lack of glucose(sugars)
Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes people can produce their own insulin, often the body does not produce enough insulin because insulin is like the key to open the cells, without insulin there's no key for the cells. Meaning the end result will be high levels of glucose(sugars) in your blood.
Important: Type 2 focuses on your diets often type 2 target people who are overweight or inactive.
