Diabetes occurs when blood glucose (sugar) builds up and can’t get into cells to be used for energy. People who have yet to receive the proper diagnosis may be seeking diabetes management care because of a build-up of symptoms such as frequent urination, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and irritability.
Two of the main types of diabetes are Type 1 Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes. Those with Type 1 Diabetes don’t produce enough insulin, while those with Type 2 Diabetes initially don’t respond to insulin as well and later don’t make enough insulin. Pinpointing how exactly diabetes happens in the human body is a very prevalent topic in today’s world, as researchers and medical professionals dive deeper into the anatomy and science of it. Some findings have shown that diabetes may stem from genes, lifestyle factors such as lack of physical activity or poor nutrition, and a high body fat percentage.
