Diabetes is a condition that affects blood sugar levels and causes many serious health problems if left untreated or uncontrolled. There is no cure for diabetes, but it can go into remission. People can manage it with medication and lifestyle changes.
Managing type 1 diabetes
When type 1 diabetics are first diagnosed with diabetes the beta cells (the pancreatic insulin producing cells) have been completely destroyed by autoimmunity. But these patients can take insulin and keep their blood sugar in normal range to avoid complications.
Receiving a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes can be daunting, yet many people manage the condition well, keeping symptoms and severe complications at bay.
Insulin injections are the most common treatment for type 1 diabetes. People can self-administer these injections at home.
Scientists have long been researching the use of implantable devices for managing type 1 diabetes without the need for regular injection.
Managing type 2 diabetes-
However type 2 diabetes is different, doctors believe type 2 diabetes is irreversible. But in very early stages of the disease with strict calorie diet it can be reversed, however once the disease is established it cannot be completely cured again. These patients can try to keep their blood sugar in normal range by sticking to a diet and exercise and taking their medications on a regular basis.
While this means type 2 diabetes is much more widespread than type 1 diabetes, it also means that a person with type 2 diabetes can make relatively simple lifestyle and dietary adjustments to bring their blood sugar levels back into the normal range.
While lifestyle adjustments can help reduce the impact of type 2 diabetes, most people with the condition will need to take medications to lower blood glucose and boost the body’s production of and sensitivity to insulin.
