Signs you should not to ignore which could lead you to diabetes:
1. There are three types of diabetes you need to understand:
· Type 1:
Seen mostly in Children and youngsters,Type 1 diabetes is caused by our body’s defense system which attacks cells that are producing insulin. Both genetical and environmental factors have a major effect on the patients.
When body stops making a little or zero amount of insulin, type 1 diabetic patients have to inject external insulin through insulin devices. This way, they have to follow the procedure daily for the life time or at least till the time they find permanent cure. If the patient doesn’t get access to insulin, they might die.
· Type 2:
90% of diabetes patients suffer from Type 2 and this is mostly seen in adults. From a very stressful lifestyle, food habits, and bad addictions acting as trigger factors this type mostly develops in adults only. Where body stops making good insulin and it becomes important to keep the glucose level in control.
For many patients, type 2 can be hereditary and for the rest, they develop it as the body stops responding to the insulin in the optimal manner.
Risk factors are plenty in this type as for adults maintaining a healthy lifestyle is always difficult!
