Treatments starting from £9.99

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar levels (glucose) to become too high. If you have diabetes your body is unable to break down glucose into useable energy. This is due to inactivity of the hormone Insulin which is produced by the pancreas, there is either not enough insulin to move the glucose to use as energy or the insulin produced by your pancreas does not work properly. There are 2 main types of Diabetes These are: Type 1 Diabetes (insulin dependent): This is where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin mistaking them for foreign cells. It may also be known as juvenile diabetes or insulin dependent diabetes. This type of diabetes can be caused by some viruses and usually develops in childhood or adolescence. It very rarely occurs in adulthood. There are no lifestyle changes you can make to lower your risk of type 1 diabetes. People with type 1 diabetes will require regular insulin injections for the rest of their life Type 2 Diabetes:  Also known as non-Insulin independent or adult-onset diabetes. This develops when the body either does not produce enough insulin, or the cells in your body do not respond correctly to insulin anymore. When the pancreas is producing normal amounts of insulin, but the body cells are unable to use it properly can also be referred to as insulin resistance. It is still unknown as to why some people become insulin resistant but there are a number of lifestyle factors that can contribute to its development such as: lack of exercise obesity (increased weight around the belly area) excessive consumption of sugary foods and drinks Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition. Medication, in the form of tablets may be required based on the progression of the condition. Type 2 diabetes is more common than Type 1. Symptoms of Diabetes Both types of diabetes have similar symptoms, the only difference is that Type 1 diabetes develops fast. Usually within a couple of weeks whereas type 2 symptoms can go undetected for several years. The symptoms develop slowly as the disease progresses. Some of the main symptoms you may notice are: Feeling thirsty Peeing more frequently than usual especially at night Feeling tired / lethargic Weight loss or muscle loss Thrush Slow healing cuts or wounds Possible changes with vision In some cases, people can go on without showing any symptoms and remain undiagnosed until complications develop.

Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person’s blood sugar levels (glucose) to become too high. If you have diabetes your body is unable to break down glucose into useable energy. This is due to inactivity of the hormone Insulin which is produced by the pancreas, there is either not enough insulin to move the glucose to use as energy or the insulin produced by your pancreas does not work properly.

There are 2 main types of Diabetes

These are:

Type 1 Diabetes (insulin dependent): This is where the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the cells that produce insulin mistaking them for foreign cells. It may also be known as juvenile diabetes or insulin dependent diabetes. This type of diabetes can be caused by some viruses and usually develops in childhood or adolescence. It very rarely occurs in adulthood. There are no lifestyle changes you can make to lower your risk of type 1 diabetes.

People with type 1 diabetes will require regular insulin injections for the rest of their life

Type 2 Diabetes:  Also known as non-Insulin independent or adult-onset diabetes. This develops when the body either does not produce enough insulin, or the cells in your body do not respond correctly to insulin anymore. When the pancreas is producing normal amounts of insulin, but the body cells are unable to use it properly can also be referred to as insulin resistance. It is still unknown as to why some people become insulin resistant but there are a number of lifestyle factors that can contribute to its development such as:

  • lack of exercise
  • obesity (increased weight around the belly area)
  • excessive consumption of sugary foods and drinks

Type 2 diabetes is a progressive condition. Medication, in the form of tablets may be required based on the progression of the condition.

Type 2 diabetes is more common than Type 1.

Symptoms of Diabetes

Both types of diabetes have similar symptoms, the only difference is that Type 1 diabetes develops fast. Usually within a couple of weeks whereas type 2 symptoms can go undetected for several years. The symptoms develop slowly as the disease progresses.

Some of the main symptoms you may notice are:

  • Feeling thirsty
  • Peeing more frequently than usual especially at night
  • Feeling tired / lethargic
  • Weight loss or muscle loss
  • Thrush
