Free Diabetic Tips & Information for Anyone Suffering From Diabetes


Living with diabetes can be a stressful time not only for you but for your family too. The condition can strike at any point during your life, from infancy through to seniority and initially be very daunting.

It's thought that in the UK alone there is around 2 million people who are Diabetic. However, perhaps more worryingly is this figure is likely to double within the next 10 years, mainly due to more and more people becoming overweight or obese. Capping these statistics though it is thought an estimated 1 million more people in the UK are living with Diabetes who simply don't know they have the condition.

Types Of Diabetes:

Type 1 Diabetes is mostly developed in the young and is a result of the body not being able to provide enough insulin for day to day living. This normal controlled with insulin injections and a controlled diet.
Type 2 Diabetes is mostly seen in middle aged and senior citizens. This condition is normally caused through poor diet, lack of exercise and being overweight or obese. In fact obesity is a linked strongly to this form of Diabetes.

Symptoms Of Diabetes:

The obvious symptoms of Diabetes are a constant feeling of being thirsty, lack of energy and feeling extremely tired most of the time. You may also notice sudden weight loss and frequently feel the need to urinate, especially at night.

Causes Of Diabetes:

There are two main reasons why Diabetes occurs; either the body is starved of insulin caused by the pancreas not producing sufficient amounts required for normal living. Or, the body doesn't use insulin the way it should. Both will result in an increased level of glucose in the blood. If left long enough without treatment a whole host of other problems can occur. These include kidney, eye and heart damage.

Treatment Of Diabetes:

Type 1 Diabetes is normally treated with life long insulin injections, together with a strict diet. Where as type 2 Diabetes is usually caused by the way a person lives their life. By following a strict diet and introducing regular exercise you can greatly help prevent this form of Diabetes.
